Day 8 of Capture Your Grief has us sharing a piece of jewelry we have in memory of our baby/babies.
I have quite a few pieces of jewelry in memory of Carleigh and one that includes both Carleigh and Jordan.
The piece that I wear most often is very special to me. The necklace is the cross necklace that Carleigh wore for her visitation and service. On that necklace is her baby ring and a pendant (from My Forever Child) that has one of her handprints on one side and her footprints on the other side. I am sad to say that the cross on the necklace fell off and I wasn’t able to find it. I have been meaning to replace it but haven’t yet. I know it won’t be the same since it didn’t touch her but a replica is at least a reminder of it.
Another piece I have for Carleigh is a charm necklace (from My Forever Child). The charms say “imagine”, “dream”, and “believe”. There is a gold star charm and also 2 purple gem/stone charms.
I had a copper necklace made (from Mama Mia) for Carleigh since it was something different than what I normally would wear. One copper disc has her name and the larger disc has “My Shining Star” and it has a gold star charm.
The square bracelet is the first piece of jewelry that I received. It was a gift from my good friend Sue at My Forever Child. I received it the evening of Carleigh’s 1st visitation and it was so, so wonderful to get it. It has Carleigh’s footprints on one side and her name and birth date on the other side.
In addition to the bracelet above, I received the Always in My Heart pins too from Sue. Sue has also given me the butterfly charm. It has Carleigh’s name on one side and her birth date on the other.
My most recent jewelry are fine silver angel wings (Sue-Ella Signature Designs). One wing is for Carleigh and the other is for Jordan. On the back of the wings are both Carleigh’s and Jordan’s names in the sand that were written by Carly at Christian’s Beach. A little bit of sand from the beach is sealed in each of the wings.
The angel pin is one my MIL gave me from Angels From My Heart. It has Carleigh’s birth stone on it.
The small baby feet pin is one that is pretty common. It is the supposed size of the feet of a 12 week gestation baby, which is when we lost Jordan. I had the pin before but then it must have gotten lost or misplaced. So happy to have it again!
The cross necklace is one I had made from The Vintage Pearl. On the back of it it is inscribed Psalm 73:26, which is the verse below my header.
