Mother & Birth Jewelry
Using a birthstone bead for each child I craft a lovely silver, copper, brass or gold wire wrapped ring. This beautiful ring is well balanced and works best with a mother honoring 3-4 children, though it can be made for a mother of fewer or more children. Pictured is a ring I created for myself for single child, but added a bead on either side for my husband and I as parents, making this particular ring a family ring. (Kitty's birthstone is a peridot and my husband and I both have aquamarine as our birth stone.)
Bead Ceremony Necklace or Bracelet
Here in the valley many mothers are guests of honor at Bead Ceremonies during Birth Circles. Bead Ceremonies are when each person present at the meeting chooses a bead for the expecting mother then strings their bead on a collective strand of beads passed around the group, each member offering the mother a well wish or blessing. From this strand of beads I can make a wire wrapped necklace or bracelet, which each bead being wire wrapped to the next, creating a goregous piece if jewelry a mother can wear. I can also arrange a bead ceremony for an expecting mother, a mother celebrating her birth or mother anniversary, though we will need four weeks to plan the ceremony.
