As we get older certain possessions hold special significance over others. As I go through my jewelry 2-3 pieces hold that honor from two very important people in my life.
I literally had to search through my jewelry to find them but they were safe and sound in their respective storage bags. One is a love knots necklace given to me by my godmother when I believe was in my late teens. The other was a gift from my parents on my 16th birthday. The 3rd piece that I would have loved to feature was from my late grandmother (my father's mother). A silver plated cross that was given to me when I was 9 years old.
Let's go into the story behind each piece.
As I said before this piece was given to me as either a birthday gift or Christmas present from my godmother in my late teens if I remember correctly. It's silver plated and is in desperate need of a good cleaning but anyway. It's a love knots necklace. In all honestly when I received it I had no clue what the design was but was told shortly after receiving it that the knots meant and the significance of it. The person said, " Someone love you a lot". I said why. They answered back with , "You're wearing a love knots necklace." I said oh.
We'll the official definition of a love knot is a very popular style of jewelry for expressing your love . On a deeper level representing endless love that has no beginning or end. I'm truly honored that my godmother gave me this piece since I'm her "daughter" since she has only sons.
This piece with my initial was given to me on my 16th birthday by my parents. It was so cute how I received it. I had a Tweety bird cake since I loved it so much and they wrapped the necklace around Tweety. I think I was more excited by the cake first then the necklace. At 16 I could officially have a boyfriend, stay out a lil' later. This piece was my beloved piece until my early twenties.
This piece held so much significance to me that I created a whole collection based on this one piece as inspiration. My Initial collection in Spring of 2014, which is still available on my website. You never know when something from your past will inspire you in the present.
Both of pieces were given to me from two important part of my groups in my life that have help guide through adulthood.They also represent my youth. I can remember so many important times when I was wearing either. Just wow!
