Freckles brooch

Freckles brooch

It's more the story that always gets me rather than the actual object. In this case it's both. I repaired this silver brooch for Paula, it belonged to her mum. A beautifully enammelled bird perched on a branch with vines and flowers with crystals.

This is a photo is of her mum actually wearing the brooch. We had a look at a few other pictures in a meticulous photo album. We had a little cry, Paula for the love and loss that resonated from that small object and I because I am lucky I still have the love of my mother alive and well. I won't go on, I tearing up and can't see the keyboard.

Thankyou for entrusting me with your precious piece of jewellery, Paula.

We all have things that remind us of our Dads, vivid memories that we think of on Father’s Day. A cobbler and artisan most of his life, I have watched him make shoes in his various workshops over the years. If I close my eyes I can see him methodically securing the soft leather onto the wooden shoe last.
