Beauty - the distillation of emotion in a keepsake

Beauty is associated with purity and a keepsake holds pure emotion.

A little boy made a paper origami crane and his mother wanted to keep it, and keep it forever. She asked Jules Asch at The Silvery in Lewes to plate the tiny crane with silver and turn it into a pendant which the mother now wears with pride and joy

This is beauty on so many levels. Beauty in the expression of how special that child is, how much she loves him and what he makes and what he is, and the beauty of ordinary paper turned silver

That silver crane is a distillation of what she feels for her boy and what he means to her and she can carry this around with her forever
