    Handmade jewelry created in loving memory-

    I starting creating handmade jewelry shortly after losing my dog Archie to cancer in July 2013. I began creating pet memorial jewelry and gifts to honor both him, and my other dogs Angus and Laddie, who I had lost previous to Archie. My memorial jewelry making took another turn and new meaning when a year later I lost my beautiful, young nephew, Michael at the age of 23, in a motorcycle accident. I decided to expand beyond pet memorials, to create jewelry to help cope with other losses. I have always believed that our loved ones in spirit, are always sending us signs to communicate that they are always around us. I incorporate these signs into my jewelry by using feathers, dragonflies, butterflies, hearts, and angel wings. I believe creating these pieces gives us a way to honor our loved ones and gives us a tangible connection we can wear to keep them close to us at all times.

      I have been a professional dog groomer for 23 years now, and have owned and operated my own mobile grooming business for the past 10 years. I began making handmade jewelry about 3 years ago, shortly after losing my dog Archie to bladder cancer.

      Inspiration

      In July 2014, my family was devastated by the loss of my 23 year old nephew Michael in a motorcycle accident. So much of my jewelry making is wrapped up in my loss and grief and the desire to help others who have also suffered the loss of a loved one
