In 2004 during the Olympics in Greece I discovered Kosmima Jewelery and an appreciation for symbolic pieces of Jewelery.   I never have bought a piece of jewelery since then that did not hold some kind of symbolic meaning for me.  My children have chosen pieces and every piece’s origin is carefully committed to my memory after […]
