Healing Words of Honey

"Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."
Proverbs 16:24

Last September one of my husband's cousins committed suicide.  Twenty-nine years old.  And as hard as it's been on the entire family, two hearts are particularly broken - those of Sam's mom and his sister.  I wanted to create pieces for them that fosters peace and lets them know that they have our thoughts and prayers...always.  Jessica received a rose quartz necklace with a sterling silver prayer box.  But I struggled with what to make for Aunt Chris. 

So when I read that proverb,  I found a sterling silver bee charm and made this for her.  The sterling silver bee charm is the focal point of this necklace in various shades of honey.  Citrine, calcite, recycled yellow glass, and lemon quartz are all handwired with sterling silver to form this one-of-a-kind necklace.  Nothing can take away the pain of losing a child, but - hopefully - this will remind her that she will heal.
