Mamas, you are nurturing the very little people that will make up the next generation of dreamers, artists, lovers, thinkers and world-changers. A perpetual, endless cycle of beauty, courage, intrinsic worth and bravery.
This piece was therapeutic for me to make because it holds a special space in my heart. When I was first asked to partner with Mamas for Mamas, I reflected upon the time that my own estranged mother would have benefitted from a program such as this.
These pieces have been personally hand drawn by me with a pencil in hand!This Affirmation necklace is especially special to my heart because this is what my own estranged mama would have needed to hear. It is what every mama deserves to be affirmed for. Every mama is brave, courageous, beautiful and worthy. She didn’t believe it because she wasn’t affirmed and felt completely alone. I sometimes wonder what would have been, if perhaps the right people had come into her life at just the right time to reminder her that she IS courageous to be a single, homeless mama. That she was worthy of the love that her children offered, and that her love was valuable. That she was beautiful. In a sense, this necklace is a message to the mother that needed to hear it the most at a crucial time: my own estranged mother. Perhaps things would have ended up differently.
Affirmations are important. Affirmations remind us of the strength and courage that we already have within.
LENGTH: Measurement of length is when the necklace is open and measured from end to end. Standard length is 18 inches. Length will vary from person to person. Please see the size guidefor length suggestions!
WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT MINT & BIRCH PIECES?
T H E M A G I C I S I N T H E P R O C E S S .
Each Mint & Birch piece starts out as sheets of precious metal. Each bar, disc, oval, heart is cut and polished by hand in my studio. Each piece is cut lovingly by me one order at a time. Jessica, the owner of the company.
Yes! You can wear these pieces every day without worry of flaking, peeling or tarnish!
I personally file, drill and polish each one with my own hands. I only use ethically sourced gold fill and solid sterling silver sheets sourced from North American mills. Using hand tools allows me to have a greater degree of control and precision over the piece to ensure that edges are beautifully smooth and that no damage occurs when finishing the piece into shiny necklaces! I do not use a tumbler, in which several pieces are put into a rotating canister with abrasives or steel pins to quickly smooth batches of pieces, causing micro scratches and unnecessary wear. Instead, I believe in good old-fashioned hard work done with elbow grease! Your bar necklace will not flake and you can wear it daily! The combination of high quality materials and my unique process of finishing the bars results in pieces that will last for years to come. I strive to offer my best, offering customizations not found elsewhere, such as the original hand lettered pieces.
