Ever wonder how heirloom pieces become heirloom pieces? Heirloom by definition is a family possession handed down from generation to generation. I often wonder what fascinating stories are behind some of the most exquisite hierloom jewelry, vase and furniture pieces at auctions, museums and homes of the rich & famous. The later are often featured in one of my favorite glossy magazines- W.
Being extremely selective about fashion and design, I have decided to create my own hierloom piece of jewelry for my son. Nothing grand, just momentous. A couple of days ago, I took a gifted traditional Chinese gold bracelet (from my dad to my son) and some of my old jewelry pieces (permanently parked in a jewelry box) to a jeweler for a consultation. The result? A gorgeous one-of-a-kind gold & silver dog tag necklace is in the making... can't wait to share it with you in 2-3 weeks!
