Nothing beats beautifully crafted original items 🙂
Here’s a shot of the wonderful ring that my mom passed along to me on my 25th, which is made from an old spoon. She wore it all through her twenties, and I can just see it on her hand while she played the guitar with her super straight, long hippy hair. In my family, we call a gift like this a breast feather. Mother birds often line nests with feathers pulled from their own chest in an effort to keep their babies safe and warm, so to give a breast feather is to give something that you hold close to your heart, and to do so lovingly and selflessly.
