For the holiday seasons, birthdays or other festivities during a year's cycle, there are those "mandatory pieces" which have to find their spot like every year. I think every family has some of those heirlooms and decorations which are stored in boxes and then displayed with pride and joy when their time has come.
With jewelry it's similar. Some pieces just have to be worn at certain events. For instance, I wear my grandma's silver bangle at every family celebration. The pendant I recently made from a broken porcelain plate of my parent's coffee service now adds to the "family outfit"...
Jewelry which is connected with family members, with family events has a priceless value for its owner. The childhood picture framed as a silver medallion, the name bracelet on the occasion of a baptism, the couples' rings, the pendant for a "to-be-mom" - this is family history eternalized in silver. Consequently, those pieces are more than just silver jewelry. With their unique meaning they hold a special place and are cherished more than other pieces ...
What would you like to immortalize? Do you have memories which you would like to have in a "tangible" form? Fragments or finds which are waiting to be framed in silver? Occasions or events that need to be "anchored"?
Leave me a comment and let me know what you would capture for your (family) jewelry!
I'm certainly not exaggerating when I claim that custom jewelry is surprisingly different than a practical kitchen utensil or the newest high-tech gadget you can give as a present to your nearest and dearest... You can show your emotions, touch a person's heart and create instant and lasting joy.
Wouldn't it be great to find a present that is shining for you? Made uniquely according to your wishes, lasting forever and showing your affection? A present that your loved one is excited about and stands out like you?
While many female customers say to me, "Yes, I know what I want, but what do I give HIM?", men are wondering "what's in it for me?"
Well, mens' jewelry is not too obvious for some and often it's even dismissed with statements like "my husband/ boyfriend/ the men in our family/ I don't wear jewelry"...
But, would this be the case if it had something on it, a theme that he is passionate about? Something that has to do with his ambition, his traits or dreams? Symbols from sports, an animal, a "secret" reference to his success? An accessory that accompanies him without being too flashy?
There are no boundaries to the options. The most typical kinds of mens' jewelry are cufflings or tie pins. But also pendants, rings, earrings, keyring pendants often in combination with leather are frequently chosen. They can all be as powerful, amazing and unique as he is. Some of those treasures have made my male customers very happy and they look good in it!!. Because those pieces were uniquely made for HIM.
In the comments to the post, let me know how the intangible should become tangible for HIM!
