So something happend last night that was kind of mind blowing. Im the type of person that belives in signs, like some things happen for a reason type thing. Well a few months back a derby friend from mine in another city was pregnate for a few months and only had a few more to go before the baby was born. Sadly they found out that she was going to have to have a still birth. It was awful of coarse. Another friend of the team (who happen to originally be from mine) emailed me that she saved a piece of the baby funeral dress (which was made from another derby girl from that same teams wedding dress from a few months back) and asked if i would make some jewelry from it for the mother and father. I was mailed the piece and had it for so long that she emailed me to ask if i had forgotten, which i hadnt i was just taking my time because i wanted it to be perfect since she is my friend and its a sensitive topic.
Well last night i finally got down to it, i had been saving this pretty silver see threw shadow box pendent that her piece of the fabric fit in perfectly on a bed of moss and when flipped to the other side i added dried babys breath. But i realized it needed just one more small touch to it.
A few weeks ago i went to a teammates house to take stuff home (she use to be a antquic dealer and is now getting a divorce). I picked up all of these old roaseries that she had. When i went to look for something to add to the necklace i picked one up and decided that i wanted to know what Sait Philomena was the patron saint for, thinking it would be cool to add it to the necklace if it had something to do with babies.
Well i looked her up and sure enough…..patorn saint of babies, infants, & youth.
