Recycled Cruel Free Fine Silver Lace
In 1951, my grandparent’s Five & Dime General store in Mission, TX burned down. One of the only remaining items salvaged from the disaster was a small receipt box with a few bills and several swatches of my grandmother’s favorite lace. In this series of rings, each band is imprinted with the actual lace from my grandmother’s store. My grandmother rebuilt her life tightly into the intricately woven threads and knots of lace. When worn, each jewelry piece is a constant reminder to weave the moments of our lives together into a beautiful and strong lace.
