“Let ‘your story’ light shine!”

The stories of your life fit together like the beautiful, sparkling pieces of the Arkansas Chandelier I saw on a recent visit to the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion. Commissioned by designer Kaki Hockersmith, the six-foot by eight-foot chandelier celebrates Arkansas by featuring 25 lights and silver-and-gold-leaf stars symbolizing Arkansas’s admission to the Union as the 25th state; crystal mined in my home county, Garland; a honey bee (the state insect) and apple blossoms (the state flower) of beaded crystal; a diamond-shaped crystal prism that celebrates Arkansas as the only diamond-producing state; and bronze pine cones (the state tree).
