You could be forgiven for not quite understanding what the custom piece is here. That’s because this was a really special commission for Jo’s entire family. Jo got in touch with me to talk to me about making a piece for her sister, aunty and mum. Recently Jo’s grandfather (Gran) had passed away and as the family mourned their loss she realised she wanted to give the women closest to her something truly special. In discussing the jewellery pieces Jo would often tell stories about Gran and it was so lovely to hear of her relationship with someone so special. We chatted about what was important to her family and icons they all identified with. Five main symbols became evident:
Family, love, home, ribbons and the four leaf clover. The clover was particularly important for all of them as it was the symbol on Gran’s front door and an icon they all knew and remembered so fondly. Each piece includes these symbols but made differently for each person. Her mum has a larger pendant, her aunty a small pendant and her sister a set of earrings, each piece telling its own story of family, love, home and good luck. All the ingredients you need for a beautiful life.
Each piece is handmade from 100% reclaimed/recycled sterling silver. To find out why it is important that we use reclaimed/recycled silver click here
If you are interested in something similar or would like to ask Laura about commissioning you a piece for any occasion, simply send her an email:
“I met with Laura to discuss commissioning a custom made sterling silver headpiece for my wedding. Everything in the shops seems so mass produced and I wanted something truly special. Laura asked all the right questions and created exactly what I wanted. She kept me informed the whole way. The end result was so beautiful, more than I could have ever imagined!”
“I was introduced to Coral Covey through friends as I was looking for a gift for my sister, Cara. Not being a wearer of jewellery myself I loved the elegance of Laura’s work. I purchased the Folded Form Earrings and my sister loved them! I highly recommend Coral Covey for anybody looking for unique design with expert craftsmanship”
“My favourite thing about Laura’s creations are that each piece is different. They are all uniquely designed and made by hand, so no two are the same”
