Forever the keepsake
It’s always a difficult thing sorting through belongings, but I would like to think one day my treasures will ultimately become someone else's.
Cameos have always lured me, I love the classic regal design and I am always on the hunt for something a little bit different. I have seen many a high street replica in recent years. Cameos come in many shapes and forms, something I find all the more intriguing.
Alongside the cameos I was also genuinely touched to receive these lockets, I always have loved the idea of a locket containing a photograph of a loved one or memory. I hope to cherish these and remember the person who these belonged to very fondly.
These two small brooches were almost thrown away, being dismissed as tat, but I felt it was only right that I found a home for them in my collection.
Though the initial sadness that this brought, it really has made me realise the true value of memories and keepsakes.
