More Memories

Another memory pendant made with fine silver metal clay, it measures two inches in diameter.  I have very few photos of my parents together.  They were newly wed and it would be several years before I became a twinkle in my father’s eye.  They were in love, the war was over, and the future held great promise.  Funny how things change and fairy tales crumble.  Down the road, their destinies followed separate paths.  My father lived to be seventy-one.  My mother, at eighty-seven,  just passed away.  This post is dedicated to her.

  1. I love this one !

  2. What a lovely tribute to your parents. You can wear them close to your heart!

  3. What fun to read your wonderful descriptions. I’m sure your mother was proud of her multi-talented daughter as I am of my Pat. How we all miss her. I will continue to enjoy your artistic adventures. I gave you e-mail address to my doctor’s wife yesterday after she admired my bracelet. Thanks. Pat C.

  4. Thank you so much for your kind words. The loss of a loved one is always difficult, but the memories never die…they live on in our minds and hearts and add such sweetness to our lives. These memories are a gift to treasure.
