Part 2 of 3 This has been a very special commission because Rosie will wear it to remind her of her Dad. Those memories are so very precious. My Dad passed away in 2012 so I understand how memories are captured and layered in material things.
If you think about it, we can all recall a time, a place, a memory when we think about or wear a special piece of jewellery. Bringing lost pieces to life not only feels like, but is, an immense privilege.
If you’re a maker then embrace your talents, celebrate your skills, be that person who shares joy with others.
As Rosie said when she received her parcel this week… “It’s arrived!!! And it’s perfect, thank you so much The little notes inside made it even more special. I can’t thank you enough for making this for me xxxx”
To be honest, I’m not sure who should thank who in this situation because it’s moments like this that mean the world to me as a maker. I’m proud to make handmade. Making – bespoke – handmade – ROCKS!
