Ever since I began making jewelry it became exceeding clear to me that each piece had a story.
In some, the story was intentional...I planted the seeds, I encouraged it. I watched it grow.In others, the stories evolved on their own, woven in the metal and stones. And then there are your stories. The stories that are created when a piece of my jewelry becomes your own. It has its own journey. Its own path.
Those are my favorites.
My Hebrew ring
, has my
story. But the many stories you have told me about WHY you choose to purchase that ring have made that ring even more precious to me.
A mother's necklace. It has an obvious path, but each one is unique to the wearer and with that uniqueness comes a story.
The Breast Cancer Awareness bracelet has my story of WHY I created it....but for each woman who purchases it, she has HER story of why she wants to wear it. Priceless.
A love token...the journey they take I will never know...but imagining it gives me such a thrill! This one is for a groom on their wedding day - SO sweet!
What about a monogram necklace. I've made this design as an anniversary gift. As a girlfriend gift. Again, just imagine the story behind the "gifting"!
A poetry bracelet. Each quote unique, hand chosen. I smile when I stamp them!
The Marry Me rings, an alternative engagement ring set. I've already heard so many stories...of how and when. Of why they chose these rings. Love.
Most recently I created these rings
for a friend. To me, they were just rings. To her, there is an intrinsic story waiting to be told. And she tells it...beautifully.
Jewelry. It has a story. It has meaning. I love that. Sometimes I "wonder" at what stories a piece of my jewelry may carry to the next generation. Is that too bold? Am I thinking to highly of my own creations? I hope not. I do hope the stories carry on from mother to daughter. From friend to friend.
At the very least I allow that dream to carry me as I create. It helps fuel the process. It keeps me "wondering
What's your story?
Does a piece of my jewelry speak to you?
Even if it just says "buy me". LOL. Tell me.
you are loved!
