My Mother's New Taste In Jewelry


Mother’s Day is right around the corner, which made me think of all the gifts I’ve given my mother over the years.  When I was in elementary school, there was always a PTA flower sale.  Every child in my class ended up walking home with at least one small container of Marigolds.  There was a time when I gave my mother flowers from a neighbor’s garden.  From what I understand, money and apologies were offered the next day. 

Things are easier these days.  My mother likes more than flowers.  She loves jewelry, but her tastes have changed over the years.  The things she asks me to make for her continuously surprise me.  I’ve included a few of them here:

I've no idea why her taste has changed from a traditional strand of pearls to a handmade Celtic Cross Necklace or Wide Hammered Sterling Silver Band, but her taste has definitely gotten cooler!  Happy Mother's Day, Mom!  I love you!
