We feel so blessed to be part of celebrating your families on charm necklaces, bracelets and pendants.
We hear so many beautiful, touching stories. Stories that make us ache.
We laugh and cry with you. We can't believe that selling jewelry gives us front row seats to such beauty - daily. We appreciate that you share your 'word aspirations', dreams and stories - the step children that you want to celebrate, the baby you lost that you want to represent with a star as you feel their light shinning from above, the cancer that you fought and survived, the dog that brings you so much joy, the divorce that made you stronger, the parent you lost that you want added to your charm necklace, the words you want for the Grandmother that takes your daughter to dance four times a week, the charms you want to give your bridesmaids and the loving words men select to stamp for their wives like SOUL MATE, an anniversary date and YOU ARE MY EVERYTHING.
BREATHE, DREAM, SISTERS, GRATEFUL, STRENGTH, SURVIVOR, BLESSED, YOU SHINE, LOVE, HOPE, BELIEVE - your words fuel me. As I stamp them, the pace of my life slows and a rare calm fills me. Even on dark days, our job reminds us of the beauty and generosity of people.
Today, a woman from Miami entrusted us with representing her lost baby. Finally, seven years after her son died, she wrote that she was ready to see his name on a large Megan circle of life https://www.suetables.com/shop/necklaces-pendants/large-megan (pictured) - alongside her two children. We added a Sandy's Angel's wing to the BACK of the chain for giving us this honour on an empty weekday filled with 'to do's' https://www.suetables.com/shop/charms/sandy-angels-wing. We wanted to remind her that her lost angel will always be with her. The client today sent us a grateful, 'tear-filled' thank-you note.
This is our gift - not hers - on a rainy Tuesday afternoon.
