I adore commission work. It didn't take long for friends, family and coworkers to begin buying necklaces for their loved ones, for secret Santa, or for themselves. But this story probably touches me the deepest.
I have a friend who made hard but wise decisions many years ago. Despite the pain in her heart, she has been separated from her son for a great many years. Now an adult, they recently established contact. Viewing his picture on Facebook, she saw that he wears "guy jewelry" and commissioned this piece. She envision black and silver, giving me creative license to interpret it my way.
For my grandchildren Beauty, Wisdom, and the youngest two
May this candle burn for you four, until prejudice yields and the pain of family history ceases to separate us.
Lesbians are those women who fall in love with tomboys. Marivic Desquitado
