About Joanie and Me
Joanie – a beautiful lady adored and missed by me.
Me – her youngest daughter.
This collection of jewelry is inspired by her fun yet classy style.
The earrings and bracelets are simple in design, light weight and are made of mixed metal, including sterling silver, pewter, brass, gold filled, copper, gemstones and pearls.
I live in Portland, Oregon and have many years of experience working with diamonds and gemstones.
In 1983, I received my Graduate Gemology degree from the Gemological Institute of America.
Spending time with family and friends and laughing brings me the greatest joy. In memory of Joanie, I will be donating 10% of sales to OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. With Gratitude.
Q: What is the meaning of the circle symbol used as an eternity design in jewelry?
A: The circle is also commonly used as a symbol for eternity, as is the mathematical symbol of infinity. Eternity jewelry is an extremely popular fashion trend today. The meaning behind a jewelry piece designed with a circle is actually quite beautiful – it symbolizes eternity, empowerment, and everlasting love.
In classical philosophy, eternity is held to be that which exists outside of time.
The journey into Fairweather’s:
“I’m Cher Flick and I met you last year while visiting my sister who lives in the area. I would love to show you a sampling of my jewelry collection, Joanie & Me. My earrings and bracelets are mixed metal as well as sterling with stones. I am searching for a location at the coast to feature my jewelry and thought of you and your beautiful shop. The collection you have is selling very well at Ellington Handbags and the very simple sterling pearl and gemstone drops are selling well at Peggy Sundays in Portland. Thank you so much for allowing me to feature Joanie & Me earrings and bracelets in your store!” Cher Flick
Grave note received:
“Love the simplicity and style of your jewelry …. It’s special just like you !” –your sister, Kathy.
