At the beach, the winter garden is usually a peaceful sanctuary in hustle and bustle of the holiday season. However, this year the front yard has hosted a three week, up to 7 trucks a day repair crew with all sorts of ladders, multiple levels of scaffolding, and surely, miles of electrical cords. Discovering, at first, a simple indoor water feature/ or rather, a small leak…the issue eventually developed into an extensive time and materials on-going repair project. I had offered to park the car outside in order to allow the garage space for material and equipment storage, every plug hosted multiple portable tool charging devices. Seeing daylight on the western front of the house today (windows and doors were previously boarded up) and seeing cedar shingles on the exterior curved walls… the end is in sight. Thankful for the insurance company who has covered: Mt. St. Helens volcano eruption repair (we lived 14 miles away); boating death; 1996 Portland flooding issue; gallery destruction in a 2007 windstorm and this current matter. Thankful for the contractor who was referred, who pulled together a crew from his home building company (has built ten homes in the Reserve). “Basically, we have used all the tools and equipment to build a complete house other than the plumbing on this repair.”

I would highly recommend the contractor and his crew, as they have proven themselves knowledgeable and efficient in the task associated with this water search and destroy repair project. PM for contractor and insurance references.

“This collection of jewelry is inspired by Joanie’s 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 and handcraft all of the jewelry in Oregon. I received my Graduate Gemology degree from the Gemological Institute of America  and have many years of experience working with diamonds, gemstones and other boutique jewelry.  In memory of Joanie, my mother, I will be donating 10% of sales to OHSU Knight Cancer Institute.”

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.
