A custom redesign to fit memories and personalities

04 Sep

We had a long-time client who owned a carved coral and gold bracelet – one that she wore frequently. After she died, her children and grandchildren wanted something to wear in her memory.

Several of the granddaughters all shared fond memories of her wearing this coral bracelet. So the family asked us to find a way that each woman could have part of the bracelet to remember their beloved grandmother.

We suggested separating the bracelet into its six links and dividing them among the girls. The women could choose to have their link re-purposed as a ring or a pendant.

Between the 3 floral carvings and 3 fluted carvings, the women were thrilled to have their redesigned jewelry to remember their grandmother. The choice between ring and pendant also allowed them to choose a memento that would best fit their personal style.
