It was a Christmas gift for my wife Floride in 1995 that started the jewelry collection. Now you can see it in 50 or so of the finest jewelry retailers in the U.S. and Canada.
Like my sculpture, each jewelry design is of or about a bird, and each starts with a piece of wood and a sharp blade. Some designs strive for a particular artistic element, while others emerge while a sculpture is in progress.
Bought these for my wife and stepdaughter as a way to memorialize the death of my wife’s mother(Irene)
We kept her in our home for the last four months of her life, Joy( my wife) was holding her mothers hand when she took her last breath.
Joy and her daughter Molly did a wonderful job of giving comfort, reassurance and love to Irene during that time, the bracelets are a meant to be a beautiful and graceful reminder of that time
Grainger, I know you did not have that sort of thing in mind while designing those, but they expressed my sentiments perfectly
