Bathed in sun,
my mother is
deep in thought.
I am there
in her eyes
Peggy Jo Donahue
One of my greatest rewards is working with a client to distill their essence into a custom jewelry piece that tells a story for future generations. Worn through life, our jewelry, now imbued with our memories and feelings, becomes a message in a bottle telling a story to those that come after us.
Mother’s Day was last Sunday, and I’ve been feeling my mother particularly close. She passed in June of 2012, and I’ve been very surprised to learn the relationship with our mothers continues after they pass. I feel her urging me on, and we still share our crazy humor.
Much as she lived, my mother passed with love and thoughtfulness, waiting for all of her six kids to arrive at her bedside. She never wanted any of her kids to be left out.
I selected a pair of white topaz gem slices with golden-hued goethite mineral inclusions, in an angel wing shape, to symbolize my angelic mother.
Mother’s are known for multi-tasking, or so I have heard….. So, on a practical note, the earrings detach into three separate pieces that can be mixed and matched with other earrings or the moonstone studs worn alone.
I can help you.
As one client for collectible custom jewelry said, “Working with Cynthia over the past 12 years…is a spiritually fulfilling process of creativity and beauty.”
I’d love to hear your story.
