Forget-me-nots inspire the gift of remembrance. Traditional flower symbolism holds that forget-me-nots mean "remember me forever” and they’re used as a symbol by the Alzheimer’s Association. My own mother, Joan, had Alzheimer’s and in the last few months of her life I started creating forget-me-not pendants in honor of her and of all the loved ones I have lost. My hope is that these pieces will inspire the wearer to remember someone special and be filled with love. In honor of my mother, a portion of each forget-me-not sale is donated to the Richmond foundation of the Alzheimer's Association.
