Preciousness: April Talk About Blog
“What’s the most precious handmade or sentimental gift you’ve ever been given and why?”
Well, In the strictest sense, it wasn’t a gift lovingly crafted and given to me….. But I have no doubt it was lovingly crafted, it was given to me per say, and it is both very sentimental and precious to me.
This knife was handcrafted, out of cable wire, by my grandfather; who was a blacksmith.
My grandfather, “Boss”; died many years before I was born. I never knew him.
Learning that metalwork flows in my blood was an emotional, important moment as an adult for me (around age 26).
I learned this after finding my path and passion in Metalsmithing – Jewellery.
Being gifted this small bit of his legacy, from my dad, was very precious to me.
Being able to hold on my hands, something passed down in our family, with such legacy (for me), is priceless in it’s preciousness.
