Sharing the passion for Jewellery and Jewellery making

As a teenager one of the coolest parents around was Mary, the mother of my dear friend Karen.  She always treated us as people, rather than some alien species, and probably most important of all, she was not afraid of teenage house parties.  As I grew up I saw her rarely, but when I did meet up with her again it just confirmed Mary as one of my favourite people.  Mary moved to Spain in later life and enjoyed a few years of sun and Sangria before cancer tragically took her from us.

Recently my friend Karen read my Blog about Recycling and offered me some of Mary’s costume jewellery, so that I can reuse the beads and breath new life into the jewellery.  I feel honoured, and give thanks to Karen for sending me Mary’s Treasure, and I will now set about the challenge of making beautiful and vibrant jewellery that will reflect the wonderful memories I have of Mary.

I will post any jewellery I make from this stash so that you can see the transformation, and obviously any pieces Karen likes will be her’s.

  1. A wonderful, very touching post. I’m sure you will make some beautiful jewelry to honor Mary.

    Jane thank you for that wonderful tribute to my mum. I was lucky to have such a wonderful mother and I wanted her jewellery to go to good use and for someone to have the enjoyment she had from them all. I can’t wait to see the results of your creative imagination and I am sure that Mary will be looking on with a cig in one had and a glass of wine in the other.
