Inspiration for Grannie's Garden

October 02, 2017

Tulip Pendant in Sterling Silver

Each of my designs were inspired by a person, place or perhaps a life event. When my brain is working in a design mode, the little wheels are turning at record speeds...Throughout the entire process, my mind and my heart are fully engaged and doesn't rest until the design is done. 

I am a loner, an introvert...I like it there! In my own space so to speak. In this sacred space is where my heart repeatedly reminiscences and replays the memories of my life. 

Designing and creating my Grannie's Garden pendant was refreshing and renewing to my soul. Some of my fondest memories of my childhood were of my Grannie, a woman of strength, wisdom, integrity, faith and love to name only a few of her glorious traits. (The list can go on and on!) Another trait that instantly comes to my heart when thinking of her is nurture which she did for all of her family and friends in addition to her gardens of flowers.

Grannie's Garden Pendant

I designed and created my Grannie's Garden pendant in her honor in hopes to capture and reflect the nurture and care she consistently provided to not only family and friends but also to her tulips and other flowers. I believe all the time she spent digging, weeding and working in her flower beds was her time in her sacred space where she reminisced. She always told us that her flowers were so bountiful and beautiful because of all her tears that went into them. 

 Perhaps you have a lady in your life that has provided nurture, guidance and care throughout many years to her family and friends. This would be a perfect gift for her to express your thankfulness for her and her beautiful traits.

Butterflies have always inspired me. The sheer willpower it takes to go into a cocoon as a worm (I know that's not technically what they are) and emerge from a cocoon with the power of flight is marvelous. I have been through some pretty amazing transformations in my life.

In life everything is cyclical. They say out with the old and in with the new. But for a younger generation intrigue is starting to come with the old. Who would have thought the 80's would ever be cool again?
