My first sale of jewellery from my online shop in 2012 was actually on New Year’s Day, when a gentleman purchased a necklace for his partner. I remember it well as I noticed at the time that the delivery address on the invoice was different to the billing address and that I had asked him if he wanted it gift wrapping.
A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by the same lady who had received the pendant. She firstly thanked me for the necklace however then informed me that her partner had sadly lost his fight to a brain tumour earlier that week.
She wanted to thank the nurses from the hospice that had looked after her partner by giving them some of my jewellery. Obviously I was honoured and we decided that I would make name on rice necklaces for them. Each of the necklaces would contain the word ‘Hope’ written onto a single grain of rice and that I would make them all different with the inclusion of flowers, glitter and various other sparkly things!
So here are all fifteen of the hope necklaces that I made for the nurses at the hospice; I hope they like them!
