Posts Tagged ‘handcrafted fine silver adornment’

Fall has been quite a fall for many this year. Transition is definitely in the cool autumn air. Perhaps it’s already freezing where you are. Perhaps you’re still where it is warm and sunny but your heart is frozen and in need of warmth. Two dear friends shared with me this week that they are “getting divorced”. These two friends live on the east and west coasts of the states and don’t know each other. Yet, each is for me a shining example of strength, femininity and motherhood. Each is starting her life over. Again…

It has been tough to swallow their newfound facebook “status”. Mainly because I am so fond of each of their husbands. I thought for sure they would last. I am grateful that my friends felt safe sharing their news of life upheaval, or as someone recently described it to me “rebranding”. I want to send love, blessings for the changes, hope for a brighter day and healing for all of the hearts living this transformation.

I ‘ve had a piece of unfinished, jewelry, a talisman of sorts, on my studio shelf, at eye level, for almost a year now. A bit of an anomaly, the piece never arrived at it’s inspired and intended destination. Only a couple of broken bits of it’s originally much larger and graceful form survived a studio accident. And in it’s decrepit state it was rendered design unworthy. But never mind that. What’s more important: I didn’t have the heart to let it go. Hmmmmmmm.

Until…

Salvage the Precious was born.

That the little pieces would mean something. Could be sewn together again, but different. Sewed apart. Embraced and moved on to. Something new. Transformed. Translucent. Light shining through the cracks…

So that’s it folks. With some genuine inspiration, I salvaged the broken, design unworthy, piece of hand crafted, fine silver. I left her with a few scratches as her imperfections are her own. Gorgeous in their own right. The necklace unifies three pieces, the fine silver pendant represents the single self, prior to marriage. I added a heart to the pendant to represent the heart that loved her way into marriage. Rose quartz with a touch of copper helps stimulate the change process, the heart that loves it’s way out of marriage is mended with unconditional, universal love.

My dear sisters/friends/confidants, you will never again be the same. May the dark, cold winter of your heart await the coming spring with passion and the curiosity of children. May you love and be loved everyday. May you recognize the love that comes to you in so many ways. May the coming year bring for you a better day.

One Love, walk good, salvage the precious…
