I have some very exciting news to share with you all…. I am about to become a grandmother for the very first time!!
My darling daughter is due to have my wee Grandson at the beginning of October this year. I know she will be the most devoted loving and caring mother to her wee boy and it has made me proud to watch her maturing into the beautiful young woman and mother she is becoming.
This time in my life has me pondering on some items in our jewellery range which would be suitable for “pregnancy jewellery” or a treasured piece which may signify this exciting and life changing new beginning for our wee family.
SE3 – Globe Earrings – Sterling Silver
The myriad of colours on the Paua Shell cabochon mirror those of our globe as seen from far above in the universe beyond the earth’s atmosphere. The spiralling lines of silver represent the process of growth and evolution. Conveying ideas of fertility, birth, death, expansion, and transformation. They are cycles of time, life, and the seasons we have on earth. These globe earrings when worn will honour your place on our globe.
What better way to celebrate the new arrival of a precious baby boy onto our earth and continuing our family’s “place in the world” than to wear these earrings in his honour?
SP3 – Circle of Life Pendant – Sterling Silver
Our exquisite Circle of life Pendant symbolises the path of life ever ongoing, with no beginnings and no end. The closed circle with a hole at the top represents the never ending journey of discovery and self-discovery for anyone who may wear it.
We are both going through different journeys on the way to the birth of this baby and beyond – my daughter during all of her beautiful blooming pregnancy and myself as I support her along the way to becoming a young first time mother.
ZGP14 – Koru Greenstone Jade – Freeform Pendant
In New Zealand Greenstone carving the koru is said to represent new beginnings, growth and re-generation. We know it symbolizes the fern frond seen in New Zealand’s native bush because of the native New Zealand people, the Māori, proverb that speaks of rebirth and growth: “Ka hinga atu he tete-kura – ka hara-mai he tete-kura”
“As one fern frond dies – one is born to take its place”.
The ideal piece of jewellery to honour this new phase in our lives. We will both be experiencing new beginnings…new starts and such a huge period of personal growth and maturity.
ZGP21 – Spiral Greenstone Jade – Freeform Pendant
The spiral shaped koru design of our Spiral Jade freeform pendant is derived from the unfolding silver fern frond. The circular movement towards an inner coil refers to ‘going back to the beginning’. Symbolic of new life, new beginnings, hope, perfection, rebirth, a new start, awakening, personal growth, purity, nurturing, a new phase (in life), the spirit of rejuvenation, and peace.
To me personally the shape of this piece also symbolises the support and protection of my daughter and her unborn child – the sleek lines of the greenstone cradle the smaller “frond” gently yet protectively. The ideal pregnancy jewellery piece.
