Here's my version,
on the 30 Days of Lovely
A jewelry still life.
Brooch & earrings made
by my great grandmother H.
This is me with my grandma T.
I don't have a photo of my great grandma H.
I think I gave them all to my mother.
|These blue earrings were made by my great grandma H as well.|
|This is a brooch & clip on earrings that belonged to my grandma T.|
These things came from Grandma T's jewelry box.
|This was my great grandma H's necklace.|
|It's uncomfortable on my neck, so I wear it as a bracelet.|
Before she died, my grandma T went through her things with me, and she described them.
My grandma T was one of my favorite people.
I'm sure I've mentioned, how our birthdays were 5 days apart.
|This little jewelry box was given to me when I was a little. It was from my childhood best friend.|
She & I lived next door to each other for 5 years.
This is me with my grandma L.
As a child, she was one of my favorite people.
This is the heart rose pendant grandma L gave me as girl. She used to wear it herself.
|This is me with my other great grandmother. She was grandma L's mom. Her name was my birthstone. She and her sisters were named after gems: Pearl, Ruby, & Opal.|
She gave me this rock when I was a child. I lost the original chain. I still wear this necklace.
Check out the ottoman, my guy made.
I used it to take all these photos.
Below is me with my brother, wearing the rock necklace from my great grandma.
This is an art journal page I drew.
|It's what I would put in my theoretical time capsule.|
|This would be stored in the jewelry box my friend made, & gave to me last year.|
|Close up drawings of the jewelry I would also keep in the box.|
All the jewelry listed is made or given to me, by friends or family.
