The Silent Tears Tribute Jewelry Collection
I have updated the Silent Tears and Wings of Thought Tribute Collection page on this site. We sold over 45 pieces at the reunion and I am thrilled by such an enthusiastic response. Christmas orders have begun to come in now as well. I design and create each piece myself and as I work I think of the dogs we have taken in and cared for through the years. Each piece is made with great dedication and intention. I surprise myself every day by how much I love working with beads, colours, textures and creation as it is unlike anything I have done before. Clearly, the dogs inspired me. A description accompanies each piece explaining the meaning of the chosen stones and colours. All lead us to a positive place and each one strengthens us somehow. They mean a great deal to me and I hope they will to you as well.
I will be adding Loud Joy pieces for Christmas so we can celebrate those we love and have loved. Our lives really are comprised of Silent Tears, Wings of Thought and Loud Joy. If we are lucky.
The tear featured below is Stillwater's Tear and I designed it for her after her death. She was mother earth to so many of the dogs that passed through our doors and she centred me. The write-up of the piece befits such a dog. It reads as follows;
STILLWATER’S TEAR $65
The large sterling silver tear is reflective and mirrors the soul. It is the metal of emotions, love and healing and connects us to the flow of the universe. The carnelian tear encourages the power of belief and provides the courage to banish indifference and live with purpose. The sterling silver chain is 22” in length.
KEEPER OF MEMORIES $45 (below)
If we could keep all we love with us always we would. Sadly, time does not permit so we treasure the memories instead. The turquoise tear is healing and it provides solace for the spirit during a time of loss. It balances our emotions and allows us to find peace within our sorrow. The red coral beads transform our restless thoughts into peaceful memories while safeguarding us from depression. The single black stone pays tribute to the uniqueness of memories that only we lived and treasured. The grey leather cord is 24’ in length.
ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE TRIBUTE COLLECTIONS GO TO CARE FOR DOGS IN NEED.
The dogs do not want charily as they are proud and noble creatures. True, they are in need, but they prefer to offer something in exchange for any help they receive. Out of respect and appreciation for the dogs, we have created a collection of jewelry that we ask you to purchase as a method of raising very much needed funds. Each piece is designed and made by myself and the dogs are always near when I am working. They lend their inspiration and devotion to each piece I create.
There truly is no better gift than one that represents thought, care and reflection. All the pieces can be seen on the Silent Tear Page and the tab is on the navigation bar above. Our thanks for your support.
See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil
Cyber bullying is all too easy and alarmingly common. Even the most noble of causes come under attack by ill informed and misguided people.
Gossip, rumours and lies spread easily and quickly through social media without a sense of responsibility or need to establish truth or validity. Far too many people believe what they read without consideration and anyone can become the victim of hateful words and false accusations. Hurt is caused and damage is done.
Dogs are true and honest animals and their actions have reason behind them. So, on behalf of the dogs we love and admire, I ask you to stand up against the bullies and help to prevent the harm they do.
Moosonee Puppy Rescue officially began in May 2003. Our purpose is to save dogs from neglect, abandonment, abuse and at times from being trapped and shot in the isolated northern communities of Moosonee, Attawapiskat, Fort Albany and Kashechewan.
We also work with organizations that rescue from northern Quebec and we accept surrenders locally when needed. All dogs deserve the best of chances.
We have placed 1400 dogs to date and we are grateful to have known every single one of them.
