A Wedding Gift with Family History


I made this cross with mementos from the Mothers in our family and one item from a Grandfather (my father) for my daughters wedding...The wedding didn't take place like planned but will in the future..Thus the meaning of the Soul Mates in the center. The watch parts are from her Grand-fathers watch, the string of pearls is a necklace from her Great-Grandmother, the silver gem button upper right corner is from the jacket of her Great-Great-Grandmother, the wedding couple is from her Grandmothers jewerly box, the silver button in the center is what I used to adorn her other wedding items...the silver hearts are from me ( her mother)...it signifies the hearts of a mother and daughter......always linked...love one another always.....
