Overcoming and Jewelry

fashionABLE Miriam Collection | La La Lovely Blog

These objects tell a story.

I rummaged the rocks on a walk in Tucson last spring.  They remind of returning year after year to a place I call rest.  And, that there is, in fact, life in the desert.

The dainty heart dish was given to me this past week as gift for my anniversary.  Eighteen years, to be exact.  And yet, Eighteen feels more like an age then an anniversary.  A lot of life has been lived between eighteen and eighteen years.

And, the jewelry tells of overcoming.  These beautiful pieces are handmade by women who have battled things like addiction, depression, and homelessness, and have overcome! The ring says ABLE, and I love to wear it when I’m feeling overwhelmed or unable.  It’s a visual reminder that I can do hard things.  That I am able.  I slip it on and remember that it’s more than a ring and a reminder.  It is story, a person, a women who is making her own way by way of making jewelry.  She was able.  I wonder what she has overcome?  I twist the ring and think of things I have overcome.  Probably different, maybe some parts the same.  I glance down at the ring throughout the day, A-B-L-E, and I look at my life.   We are overcomers.  Her, you, and me.
