After watching the movie, “One True Thing,” based on Anna Quindlen’s semi-autobiographical novel, it really hit home how much we don’t always realize moms are the rock solid foundation of the family even to the very end. The 2” x 1.5” rose quartz focal piece is known for love and compassion and is wrapped in silver wire, silver being known for warding off evils – another motherly trait. The stone hangs from a 17” solid circle necklace to symbolize her strength and never ending, unconditional love for her family.
