For Graduation - A Friend or Bridesmaid....the poem reads...


~Just as lives intertwine so do
these sterling silver hoops ~

One smooth ring symbolizes those easy, smooth sailing times in your future that you will laugh through. One roughly hammered ring symbolizes the tough,
rough times you will cry through.

With the support of friends and family there is nothing
you can't accomplish.

This necklace is for you to
symbolize your journey through life.


Need a gift for to express the next step in a young life?

I first wrote my original friendship poem, in my mind, while making my necklace. I was thinking about how the rings intertwine like the lives of my friends and I. I got to thinking about the hammered hoops and how they seemed like the hard times in life. And a poem was born (this still surprises my husband as I had never written poetry before). I actually thought "Why not post one and see if anyone feels the same way I do about their friends"...boy have I been pleasently surprised! I love the stories I hear from people after presenting the necklace to a friend or loved one. It makes my heart sing.

More poems have sprung out of the original...many at the request of customers for different occasions. I am blessed to have so many great customers!

This little poem will accompany the necklace, beautifully boxed for gift giving. The saying can also be revised for a sister, mother, etc. Just let me know if you would like it revised for you.

These rings are formed, cut, soldered and forged by me and tumbled for hours to a brilliant shine. All parts are solid sterling silver.

Length: Approx. 18 inches
This can be made in a 16 or 20 inch length. Just specify at checkout.
