"It all begins when one looks not at what the mere object is but what it can become as a wearable expression of love, a reminder of a loved ones place in the story of our life."
As an artist, Amy sees things with a unique and different point of view. What she saw in her mother's Chanel No. 5 perfume bottle were memories all packaged within the simplicity of this iconic design miniature, a design of which has remained unchanged since its inception in 1924. Upon a glance at the enchanting flacon now empty with its faded label and stained glass, her thoughtful mind is presented with images of her beautiful mother sitting at her dressing table applying this forever classic floral mix behind her ear lobes.
Her dressing table was also home to other fineries including a long strand of lustrous pearls; satiny, glossy, so full of creamy luminous color. These pearls were presented to Amy's grandmother and were now in the care of Amy's mother who wore them with honor.
Today, Amy wears this necklace I designed combining these cherished heirlooms. Because the design of this necklace works so well with Amy's signature style she wears it often with much enjoyment and fond remembrance of loved ones in the story of her life.
