Jewels of Remembrance

I’ve been doing a lot of writing on here lately which, honestly, is what I need and prefer. However, I figured I’d break things up just a little today.

The past week and a half or so, I have spent a good deal of time searching Etsy for the perfect piece of jewelry. If you know me, you know I love my jewelry.
Well, I want to buy a meaningful piece to remember my Mom with. I wear an infinity necklace that she gave me once I moved back to the East Coast this Summer so, I was thinking a bracelet would be perfect. That way, whenever I was thinking of her and needed to feel her close, I could just look down at my bracelet.

Here are some of the pieces I was looking at. Some of them are necklaces but if I end up going with one of those choices either the shop owner will help me turn it into a bracelet, or, I’ll just make something similar of my own!

Always handstamped cuff bracelet with angel wing charm and swarovski crystal

Personalized angel wing name necklace

ABSTRACT--Mixed Metal Hand Stamped Bracelet

Brown Chain Wrap Bracelet With Wing Charm

I definitely like the idea of a charm with “Mom” on it and either a little phrase or angel wings or something of the sort.

I’ll keep searching. I can’t wait to one day be wearing something in remembrance of her :)

I like the fourth one. I did something similar for my mom. I would just worry about the gold colored pieces turning.

Carolyn said...

Such a wonderful idea! :) I like the necklace with the wing and her name. If they could make a bracelet like that, it would be so cute!!! Plus, she's your angel, so the wing is perfect!

Lauren said...

I really love the last one because it's so unique... If I were doing something similar I would choose that one and add a charm or two to the angel wing to make it really yours. I'm sure you'll find something perfect, and when you do you'll just know - it will speak to you!
