It’s amazing what you can learn about a person just by looking at their possessions.
These are the items I took of my grandmother’s. She had so much New Mexican inspired jewelry and I had no idea she even had an interest in that culture. It’s something we shared that I found out too late.
When my grandmother was alive she gave the Tiffany&Co bracelet (featured above) to my cousin. After she passed, he called me to tell me he had the bracelet for me. It has her initials, P.W.A, engraved on the heart. I wear it almost everyday now.
Incorporating this jewelry into my wardrobe was easy, as it seems my grandma and I shared the same taste. Regardless of that, the best part of wearing the items, is feeling like a piece of her is with me wherever I go.
It’s funny because I remember having one of these Tiffany&Co heart bracelets when I was younger. If you asked me earlier this year if I’d ever wear one again I probably would have said, “hell no”. Now that I have this one, it seems silly that I wasn’t wearing my own all the time. Perhaps out of date to some, it really does make the best addition to my arm party.
I think what I’ve learned from this experience is that what’s old is definitely new again.
