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:
“My partner and I engaged Laura with the task of commissioning a unique piece of jewellery. Laura was loosely briefed by my partner and totally took the concept and ran with it. Communication was forthcoming with frequent updates along the way, including illustrations and photos of concepts. The final product blew all involved away! Couldn’t recommend Coral Covey any more thoroughly!”
“I love that Laura creates jewellery with an environmental conscious. My sunflower seed ring is made with love and I will always treasure it!”
“Laura was attentive and really listened to what I wanted. She is very friendly and easy to deal with, communicating through the process with sketches, test models and the finer details. I would highly recommend Laura for any jewellery with a personal touch. It makes it all the better knowing its made from reclaimed silver!”
