Family is the theme

I am thrilled to again be designing pieces for this delightful family I have had the pleasure of working with several times. This is an exciting time as the children are now adults and beginning their own lives with soon-to-be husbands and wives. One of the daughters came in with a bracelet from Nana – she remembers Nana wearing this piece.

Since Nana was a larger woman, this bracelet fit her granddaughter very very generously! What to do? Each link of the bracelet consists of a garnet with a diamond accent, so it was easy peasy to shorten the bracelet by two links. Then, by finding the perfect posts and backs, the removed links were used to create a pair of earrings.

The day after she picked this up, she was going to her soon-to-be in-laws’ house for a celebration of Nana’s life. It just so happened Nana’s birthday was in January, and garnet is the birthstone for January babies. Completely appropriate to wear the earrings / bracelet matching set to commemorate and celebrate a much-loved family matriarch.
