Celebrating the moms in our lives
As Mother's Day approaches, I'm reminded of the incredible women in my life who have had a profound impact on me, especially my mother and grandmother, both of whom were talented jewellers. They had a passion for creating unique, one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry that always stood out.
As teenagers, my sisters and I were always excited to wear their beautiful creations. We felt so special wearing pieces they had made with such love and attention to detail. Their ability to take raw materials and turn them into something both elegant and wearable was truly inspiring. Thanks to them, we learned to love and appreciate the art of jewelry-making.
As I grew older, I realized that the sentimental value of jewelry goes far beyond its physical beauty. A piece of jewelry can hold memories, emotions, and stories that are passed down from generation to generation. And that's why creating something special and sentimental like a piece of jewelry made with a child's art is so important to me.
There's something truly magical about taking a child's artwork and turning it into a wearable piece of jewelry. It's a way to celebrate their creativity and imagination, while also creating a lasting keepsake that can be cherished for years to come. I love seeing the joy on a mother's face when she receives a piece of jewelry that her child helped create. It's a reminder of the beauty and power of motherhood, and the special bond that exists between a mother and her child.
So, as we approach Mother's Day, I'm grateful for the legacy that my mother and grandmother have left behind. Though it remains to be seen whether my daughter will follow in my footsteps and become a jeweller, I know that the skills and traditions passed down through the generations will always be a part of our family's history. And I'm proud to be a part of that legacy, celebrating the incredible women who have helped shape me into the person I am today.
Happy Mother's Day!
