A bond of kindred spirits who loved antique jewelry
My Great Grandfather was an antique jewelry appraiser and hand engraver through the early-mid 20th century. He was very skilled in his craft and a knowledgeable and well respected individual in the jewelry industry.
Looking at this photo makes me smile. As an infant I was attached to my mom and I liked no one. But I liked him and would let him hold me without throwing a fit. We didn’t know it but had a bond of kindred spirits who loved antique jewelry!! Now many years later I work on the same antiques he worked on, restored and appraised. It’s pretty fucking cool to think that this in my family roots. I truly feel I am exactly where I’m supposed to be in my life and career, and somethings are just meant to be.
