Remembrance and Recognition

On this anniversary of my Grandmother Rose’s leaving her body and her daughter, my mother, entering hers, on this Armistice day though none in my lineage were warriors, I made in remembrance and recognition of my ancestors, this mala with a locket (still empty of pictures) that my grandmother bought at the Brooklyn Museum’s shop in the early 1970s–

Rudraksha Seed – auspiciousness and oneness

Iolite – connecting with angels

Laboradorite – perfection and protection

Amethyst – gentle, tranquil, soothing healing

Pyrite – fierce creativity, ingenuity

    Lovely, I am remembering the good times with family, when the kids were young & grandma often saying how fortunate she was to experience the pleasure of being a grandmother.
