Family is the one constant element in life- my dearest aunt has always been there for my family and me. Her generous and loving ways always brought so much love and laughter to our lives. My late father had always spoken about his elder sister with so much admiration and respect. Since we were kids, my aunt often took the time to take my sister and me for an outing at a shopping mall to spend an afternoon with her. She would treat us to lunch and shower us with gifts. Never has she turned a listening ear or us away when we needed motherly advice. Listening to her stories about her work life and career was the most fabulous treat. My aunt has genuinely inspired me to always better myself and be strong in difficult times.
How to show appreciation to your Aunts- the most valuable thing you could give your relatives is your time and attention. Speaking of attention, try to remember what they said that they liked for my case; it was my aunt mentioning that she loved jade. My sister and I decided to get a pair of Jade earrings for my aunt’s birthday.
Hubby and I purchased a pair of earrings for my sister for her birthday earlier this year, and it so happens that my aunt and my birthdays both fall in the same month. I had trouble selecting the perfect pair of earrings for my aunt until Hubby suggested I get the same design he chose for my sister, making it a set of three pairs of matching earrings in different colours. That was a brilliant idea, a couple of jade earrings for the women in my family that I treasure.
I invited the owner of JL Heart, Juat Li, to share about her store and what inspires her to create these lovely jewellery pieces.
It’s not just jewellery; it’s life.
To me, jewellery is not just for making you look lovely. It’s a way for you to express yourself.
Many of us get jewellery to commemorate special moments in life. I’ve made jewellery for weddings, births, graduations, birthdays, and so much more.
Every time we put on that particular piece of jewellery, it brings back happy moments. And that is precisely why I’m hooked on JL Heart.
Whenever I make jewellery for you and hear about your life stories or see your lovely photos, it adds meaning to my work and fuels me much more than my corporate career.
Thank you, Eveclair, for giving me the chance to make these Swirling Leaves Jade Earrings for you, and I hope they get to go through life’s precious moments with you.
Thank you, Juan Li, for sharing and creating such lovely works of art that my family will always treasure.
