A lovely friend of mine asked me to make a piece of jewellery for her - as gift to herself for her 40th birthday. When I asked her what she had in mind in the way of design, colour, size, etc, she said she completely trusted me to make her whatever I wanted to! She is such a strong earthy woman, and a beautiful mama to two little girls who are her world. So I chose a crazy lace agate stone with a beautiful landscape, I see her as the full moon and her children (one born in summer and one in winter) as the sun and the snowflake - all interconnected, dependent and reliant upon each other, yet unique and independent in their own way. I was so worried the ring wouldn't fit her or she wouldn't like it or both! I gave it to her last night at her party and it was a perfect fit, it looked beautiful on her and she loved it :) ... phew.
