I have created 3 different pieces, 2 bracelets and a Mala with this specific reason in mind. It was for some customers who required me to take certain precious elements off of one jewelry piece and add them to a new one. For the sake of anonymity, let me just say, that a parent had passed away and their children wanted a new piece of jewelry made. It was a way to keep them close as they worked their way through their grief.

It was the necklace I’ll always remember because the customer said she wanted the cameo to sit right over her heart, to keep her mum close. Ahhhh, right in the feels!

I felt so completely and utterly blessed to be able to do this for them. That in itself, was a huge honor for me.
