Memories Made into Jewelry
My friend Mary Beth is a jewelry artist and has a gift for seeing things in a different way.
When I saw her new bullet necklace design, I fell in love.
It is such a hard edge with a delicate side.
I contacted her asking for her to make one for me but with a twist, I had the bullet shells from my FIL's Marine Salute at his funeral. We had them on display in our home but thought, hey one would be really nice to turn into this necklace.
It would hold so much meaning to have made into something rather than just laying around in a box.
Mary Beth turned this bullet shell into an amazing piece of wearable art.
I can't wait to wear it. It has so much meaning behind it.
She makes these with her collection of shells, crystals and feathers and offers it here
along with many of her other wonderful designs. Her work is carried on Zappos and Modcloth as well as many boutiques across the country.
Big thanks goes out to her for making a great keepsake into something I can wear everyday.
