Turn your ring into a small vessel or reliquary to hold your own personal memento and create a true heirloom. I will personally create for you a "Memento Vitae" to commemorate that major event in your life. It has a decorative screw that is to be removed to insert your memento inside, perhaps dried flowers from a special bouquet or the ashes of a beloved.

The price of $325 includes a simple silver bail, a lightly textured pattern on silver discs, front and back, a decorative screw with a 3mm cabochon of peridot, citrine, amethyst, amber or pearl.

The first piece pictured has a sapphire in the decorative screw head but this is NOT included in the price. If you want a stone that is not listed, just let me know! You can even supply your own stone if you like. A single diamond lost from a pair of earrings is a favorite!

With every order there is usually a great deal of talking that is done. Almost everyone has something they want that makes the pendant more personal, sometimes it is a design on the back, extra stones, engraving, twig bail, or a leaf or feather design for the screw-head. The fourth picture has the pendant in the original ring box with a special silver bail of twigs and leaves and a tiny pearl on the screw-head. The last photo shows the basic components of a Memento Vitae pendant prior to assembling and soldering.

Making these pendant reliquaries is truly a labor of love for me. I feel blessed to be trusted with such important and precious mementos.

Customer comments-

"I just received my Memento Vitae crafted by Victoria to honor my late Husband. It exceeded all expectations right down to the packaging.

Victoria is a patient compassionate person. She is nothing short of a genius in her ability to craft a one of a kind work of art. I will wear and cherish it always.

It was no accident that her site was sent to me, it was meant to be. I felt the connection and passion for what she is able to do after the first E-mail.
I am forever grateful to her for Blessing me in more ways than one.
Her talent is above 5 stars + + +

A Very Satisfied Customer,
