Jewelry Box Pendant
These are rings that lived inside the family jewelry box until one day they found new life as a pendant.
All of the sentiment is original.
When a loved one passes away and leaves behind personal jewelry a common issue occurs; “What do I do with this?”
To rewear a loved one's jewelry doesn’t feel natural to everyone. Too often these sentimental pieces end up in a jewelry box, unused. The thought of melting them down for the small monetary return seems sacrilegious. These pieces of jewelry end up in a limbo of sorts; too important to lose, but awkward to wear.
The sentiment of the jewelry is what is causing you to keep the jewelry, even if it’s unused.
So harness that sentiment and build a nostalgic heirloom from this unused treasure.
Refashioning important jewelry requires respect for original piece.
I’m a fan of reusing as much of the original material as possible, so that the original piece can be found within the new creation.
By keeping the details of the jewelry, the narrative remains intact as well.
