what a beautiful thing i get to do. seriously. i love my job. katie first came to me with a green, vintage powder box which once belonged to her grandmother. i lifted the lid and inside was amethyst, tourmalines, quartz, opals, garnets, among other gemstones. i was gleeful just thinking of the possibilities.
katie had originally contacted me to create a necklace from these stones for her mom (the daughter to the woman who collected all these gemstones). i made a beautiful necklace for her mom kathy. but this time, kathy came to me requesting a few pieces of jewelry be custom made for katie's birthday. i again got to work with these story-filled stones.
these are the pieces i came up with. i am ever so happy with the way they all turned out. i got a text from katie the night after i dropped them off at her house saying, "oh my goodness, angela. i love everything so much! just got home after working for 36 hours and i have to say pretty jewelry is an awesome thing to come home to!!!!"
this is why i do what i do. wear them in good health, katie. and always remember your grandmother is close to your heart, always.
