When I think of my mother, Donna, I think of her as being full of life and light. She taught me what is important; family and friends, to concentrate on what is good and what is worth working for; to stay true to who you are, and that sometimes change is good and necessary.
Her birthstone is the pearl; funny that I use it in most of my designs. She passed in 1983 at the age of 55; yet she lives on in her family and in my jewelry. She is one of the strongest women that I have ever met. My mother is the "donna" in L'donna, and she would love this necklace!
