This week I will lighten the mood with another capture story. I know Amy’s story, although awesome, is a tear jerker for me to have started off this series with. On to Mom’s story. For a short time as a child I lived in Cape Cod Massachusetts. I have a lot of memories from the time that I lived in Cape Cod. I was about 3 or 4 when we lived there, just around the time that I started making memories. During some of the time that we lived there we were not far from the beach. It was just a short walk down the road and down a long set of stairs. I remember the stairs being somewhat intimidating as a child. When we went to Cape Cod in the fall of 2010 for the Sea Glass Festival we visited the beach. The stairs seemed much smaller to me 25 years later. I don’t have a picture of the stairs, but this is a picture from the top of them looking down to the beach.
While we were there my Mom collected some of the sand from the beach. Then when I was making pieces for Capture I took the sand and captured it in a ring for Mom. I also made one for my sister Kelly and one for myself. This one is Mom’s ring. I just love the oval setting sideways.
This is a detail of the grains of sand within the ring.
Now Mom can always have a piece of Cape Cod with her when she wears this ring. I am sure it will bring back memories from our times there.
I can’t wait to hear the other beautiful stories behind each Capture Jewelry piece. I plan on sharing many of them here on the blog from customers who wish to share their story. If you have already purchased a Capture Jewelry piece and would like to share your story please contact me and tell me about it.

Today I am thankful for: Football this weekend. I am not a football fan at all, but I am into it the past few weeks. We are cheering for the Giants just because my brother-in-law Mark does. It is fun to have a team so I guess it makes sense to keep peace in the family. ;) Have a great weekend!
