There is luxury of ‘staying behind’ to cook the last meals of summer, clean the sheets again, and drive home alone as the kids fight for the ear phones in the back seat. As crisp morning air chills our toes, still firmly in flip flops, I know that fall is on the doorstep of our beach-front Maine rental. Summer is coming to a close. The husbands have gone home. I see the mothers – my sister and some of our old childhood friends – still carrying beach bags, still watching their kids wave jump, still building sand castles and I...
Starfish evoke memories of beach holidays, discovery and warm salty oceans. So, we just had to add a sterling silver starfish to our line of charms with meaning. However, this is not the only reason. Years ago, I gave a sterling silver starfish to my eldest son’s favourite teacher. Kaarin was a Kindergarten teacher with just the right amount of warmth and strength to keep them all on task. She was a beautiful person who saw my son’s best qualities despite the fact he could not sit still at circle time. She even honoured my son’s request to have the...
When moms buy charms with their children's names or letters, it is often to have something special to celebrate their little ones. New moms get so many gifts for their baby, but not many gifts that are just for them. When I first stamped my sons’ initials on my neck over six years ago, my boys were three and six.

My boys...
We all have cracks to fill, quiet wishes in our hearts. People often select a word for the year and it becomes a kind of theme or talisman. It reflects where they are at or what they want. It can be aspirational or inspirational. When I was going through a challenging time, I wore a pendant that said, LIVE YOUR TRUTH. Now, as I rush around in my daily life, I wear one that says LIVE THE MOMENT which is to remind me to slow down and enjoy. Last year, I had three words: SHOW UP, SHINE, LET IT GO. If...
I am selling jewelry at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children today. It is quiet. Bright lights illuminate my silver jewelry display and pyramid of holiday ornaments but dozens of people people pass by at a quick pace – rushing to doctors appointments – child (and coffees) in hand. Doctors, nurses and clinical staff rush by in olive or blue scrubs. They barely look my way. Sales are slow today. Business owners don’t talk about the slow days…we only promote the big sales, the big launch, the popular items, the busy shows, the impressive lineups and turn outs. But, there are...
