Foundrae created the “Freedom of Expression” charm in honor award-winning author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Adichie selected the four symbols that appear on the Freedom of Expression medallion; here is why she chose what she chose. The garnet-set triangle at the top and the yellow topaz at the bottom are meant to represent fire, “to symbolize that which can embolden and energize, but can also consume,” she said, while the infinity symbol honors “the endlessness of those things we hold dear: Freedom, the dignity of every human heart.” The arrow, meanwhile, represents forward motion, stressing that “the journey of progress is unfinished,” while the arrows crossing in the center remind people to live passionately, as our time on earth is short.
