I chose to customise the true north necklace with a very special engraving to remember my Gran. Gran kept a daily diary for around 60 years and was known for her incredible hand writing. Gran’s diary entry written the day I was born, tells the story of my Mum’s very quick labour and the excitement of my siblings to hear I was a baby girl. Gran wrote: “A dear little dolly only 5lbs 13ozs”. I thought this was so sweet and special to be able to read about the day I was born, so I wanted to create a piece I could wear everyday incorporating her words.
How did you feel when you saw your necklace for the first time?
I was so happy to see my vision come to life! The necklace is so delicate and pretty and I was so impressed to see the engraving.
What is a favourite memory you have of your Grandmother
My favourite memory of my Gran would be spending time in the kitchen together baking. Gran had her very own handwritten recipe book, which we still use to this day.
