bro·ken glass ceil·ing
the shattered remains of an unofficially acknowledged barrier to advancement in a profession, especially affecting women and members of minorities.
One of the biggest accomplishments to anyone facing a glass ceiling is to be able to break through it. We each hold our own glass ceilings as the ultimate achievement. The phrase “Glass Ceiling” resonate differently with each person that uses it to define uphill battle in front of them. From breaking into a male dominated work place to rewriting cultural norms or redefining the invisible pre-determined boundaries set in place just because you are who you are. Each time a glass ceiling is broken, it leaves a door open for the next individual.
This broken glass ceiling necklace was inspired by someone wanting to give their coworkers a memento of the glass ceilings they broke in their field. With every locket I crack, it brings me closer to breaking my own personal glass ceilings. I am grateful for each story I hear, and each achievement I get to be apart of. While my store has many options for this necklace, the possibilities are endless. I love creating custom pieces to help display your accomplishments.
