A quick update on my post from way back in June.
As promised, here are the results of the ring remodelling. My mother’s (white gold) and grandmother’s (yellow gold) rings are now contemporary pieces my daughter and I wear daily. Executed by the talented Bridget Kennedy, we’re so happy to now be using these jewellery pieces in our everyday lives. They’re a daily reminder of their origins and our female lineage, but much more wearable (not least because now they actually fit!).
It’s so nice the rings aren’t still kept in a plastic bag in a drawer, hidden from the world.
Continuing the lives of these meaningful pieces, I like to think of them as brand new contemporary classics. We’re still keeping the tradition, only a little differently.
Now, the stories are extending into the 21st century.
