LETTERS FROM MUM
“I trace the line of each letter with my finger…
Absorbing every single word
I Imagine your face as you wrote each one; no doubt giggling at your own jokes
I smile … but at the same time a wave of heavy, sadness engulfs me and I can’t stop the tears.
Happy tears, sad tears , innocent tears for a time when I naively thought you’d be around forever .
I smell the paper; I’m disappointed that it doesn’t smell of you … year’s stored safely away in a Cigarette box has put pay to that.
I hold the letters against my heart and imagine that you are holding me
A part of you is etched on those precious pieces of paper. Conversations that can’t be erased . Words forever embedded in my heart “
I wrote this poem after I was approached by the lovely Emma from Inscripture to see whether I would like to collaborate with them and choose a piece of their beautiful jewellery.
After looking into the company I couldn’t say no.
It’s no ordinary jewellery … they take special words from letters, cards etc and engrave them onto jewellery – ‘You live the moments, we create the memories’
It is a beautiful concept and something that would make a special keepsake / gift.
Luckily I had saved a few very previous letters mum wrote to me while I was away studying. I spent ages going through them , reading , laughing at her wacky sense of humour but mostly shedding lots of tears
I choose the Sterling Silver and 9ct Vermeil Rose Gold Two Tone Bar Bracelet and decided on the wording ‘All my Love Mummy xx’
I never called my mum , Mummy, but she ended every letter that way so it felt right
Now I get to wear a piece of beautiful jewellery every day that holds a little piece of my mum and a special place in my heart 💗
I can’t tell you how much this means to me, I feel so blessed as it makes her feel close to me . Just seeing her handwriting sent me into a whirlwind of various emotions …and yes there have been more tears today as I opened it , but happy ones.

I was sent the bracelet by Inscripture but was under NO obligation to write a blog post. I’m just so chuffed with it I decided it was too good to not share. Thank you x
