I've got fertility on the brain: I might as well share this with you, dear readers longtime and new -
I want to have a baby.
This was news to even me a few years ago: the biological clock had begun its incessant, loud ticking and I was taken aback by the alien thoughts that churned in my brain.
Babies in the grocery store lines made my heart burst
my friends' children were even cuter than normal, even mid-tantrum
I found myself perusing maternity clothes online 'just to see'...
All of these changes were especially jarring considering Anthony and I had agreed early in our relationship that children were not on the foreseeable horizon
nor did we think they ever would be:
there was so much travel, such joy in solitude and activities for two...
how could anything get any better than this?
Over the past few years we've both gotten on board the baby wagon in our own subtle ways,
and now we find ourselves beginning to hope.
Because 'fruitful' is such a frequent thought, it's no wonder this ring came to be:
it's a fertility talisman, filled with prayer for the realization of a dream.
It doesn't necessarily mean babies:
perhaps there is a job you're wishing for
a pursuit you're investing in
a volunteer organization you're passionate about founding
Starting on the upper left corner of this wonderful ocean jasper cabochon
there is space, first and foremost
and then a tiny bud
followed by a larger, unfurling flower both still too fragile to emerge...
the fullness of the wish is a trinity
of pure copper blossoms
hammer-engraved in my studio
and riveted with sterling silver centers.
I know this is meant for a very special, very specific woman
and I cannot wait to meet her.
If you feel that this orphan is yours, please send me a convo
And the ring will be made in your size
with great love
that what you wish for most will be yours
and then some.
