At the Clarkston show last weekend, a man came up to my stand and as is my habit, I explained to him what my jewelry is all about. He was very interested and asked a lot of questions. It turns out he was looking for a present for his wife. This was a refreshing change since most of the time, the women look at my booth and the menfolk stand around looking bored. I was even happier when he told me that he wanted to buy a present because he recognized what a special woman he had in his life. Isn’t that the nicest thing to hear?
I’m happy to say that he found what he was looking for with this necklace. What makes this necklace special are the pendants that I created from Bohemian glass from the 40s. I love these faceted rondelle beads. They are so versatile and can really make a piece stand out. When I find them, I always try to hang on to them a bit, just because they’re pretty. But I was certainly very happy that this piece found itself a special new owner!
I was just thinking that cliché or not, Mother’s Day brings out all sorts of emotions in everyone. For the lucky ones, it is a day of celebration and thankfulness. For some others it is a more difficult day. One thing is for sure though, despite whatever relationship we have with our mothers or even our own relationship with the idea of motherhood, none of us would be here without her. That’s a good enough reason to mark this day.
So, I made a little gallery of pretty things you could offer your mom. Or why not yourself if you’re a mom. I hope you like it.
