i love that this gift's meaning is not obvious and can be kept private. it's tasteful, simple, and poignant.
Connecting through family and loss
When I first opened my shop it was a little aimless. Thus the name The Whimsy. Most of my listings felt a bit like a whim. Then several years ago I began to make wire wrapped jewelry because I was looking for styles for myself that were both classy and meaningful.
Currently my most popular designs are my Mother's Necklace with children's birthstones in it and my Remembrance Necklace which I made in memory of the son, Jack, who we lost when he was 9 weeks old. I wear both designs regularly myself and love how in a sweet, secret kind of way they can remind me daily of my four children.
What has kept me making my jewelry is the connections I've made with other mothers. It has been wonderful talking with other moms in celebration of the children they have and an honor to share with mothers in their mourning of children they have lost.
Thank you all for sharing your hearts and families with my little shop.
