Day 2165 - Jewellery that speaks

Have you ever owned a trinket that really spoke to you?

I was recently given this gorgeous bangle by my bestie in PA who owns the other half.  It's a reminder to me that although my best friend lives on the other side of the world, she's still with me in spirit every single day.

The bangle is by Alex and Ani and I've owned one before.  Cathy also gave me one for Christmas with the word "opportunity" on it which is now my word of the year.  It keeps me focussed. Unfortunately I lost the bangle (but that's a story for another day). But the word has stuck with me.

It got me to thinking about how clever and inspiring such trinkets can be.

I recently came across Lily Anne Designs.  I have a dear friend whose baby boy is fighting Leukaemia right now.  She was due to be with us last weekend at our "uni reunion" but clearly has more important things to deal with.

So to make her feel part of the festivities and to remind her how much she is loved and supported, we banded together to buy her a locket with floating charms inside.

Each charm a reflection of the person that chose it for her.  She can now wear it knowing that while we may not be physically there, we're just a phone call or flight away, and we're near to her heart.

Jewellery can be clever like that.

If you haven't discovered Alex and Ani yet, be sure to check them out.

Plus head on over to Lily Anne Designs to get a feel for their fabulous lockets.

So much to choose from!
