When she got too frail to make that dream come true, she gave me the box of jewelry. After she passed away, I finally sat down to create her dream. I remember her wearing some of the pieces and playing with some of the others as a kid.

Immediately I knew it was my mums who i lost way back in 2005. I didnt even need to see her signature. So this is 29 years old and i couldnt tell you when i saw it last, closer to 91. Also im about an hr and a half from where my mum lived her whole life. My birthday was just 3 days ago and i definitely feel this was her saying happy birthday and giving me the gift of something she made. I feel so lucky and am pinching myself still.
