For the holiday seasons, birthdays or other festivities during a year's cycle, there are those "mandatory pieces" which have to find their spot like every year. I think every family has some of those heirlooms and decorations which are stored in boxes and then displayed with pride and joy when their time has come.
With jewelry it's similar. Some pieces just have to be worn at certain events. For instance, I wear my grandma's silver bangle at every family celebration. The pendant I recently made from a broken porcelain plate of my parent's coffee service now adds to the "family outfit"...
Jewelry which is connected with family members, with family events has a priceless value for its owner. The childhood picture framed as a silver medallion, the name bracelet on the occasion of a baptism, the couples' rings, the pendant for a "to-be-mom" - this is family history eternalized in silver. Consequently, those pieces are more than just silver jewelry. With their unique meaning they hold a special place and are cherished more than other pieces ...
What would you like to immortalize? Do you have memories which you would like to have in a "tangible" form? Fragments or finds which are waiting to be framed in silver? Occasions or events that need to be "anchored"?
Leave me a comment and let me know what you would capture for your (family) jewelry!
