INSPIRATION: My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 18 years old. It is named Miriam in honor of my mom's struggle and resilience against such a horrible disease. She will have Stage IV cancer for the rest of her life but she is going strong and never gives up! She is an inspiration to all! A portion of the proceeds will be donated to breast cancer awareness.
ABOUT THE STONES: Part of my fascination with jewelry making is the stones. What do they mean? Where did they come from? Below find the meaning of the stones of this particular piece. Please keep in mind that gemstones and semi-precious gemstones have many different meanings to many different cultures- these are just what I’ve found in my research! :)
*** FRESHWATER PEARLS are usually pale white or cream-colored, though darker blue, gray, and even black variations exist. Remember, Pearl is the result of layer upon layer of substance produced to combat irritation. Freshwater pearls enable one to accept love and see the good parts of oneself so you can love yourself and others more. Pearls are also a symbol of purity.
