Mother’s Day 2015: Precious Moms

Roslyn Celebrations & Gift Ideas Motherhood

It should be no surprise that Mother’s Day is just around the corner on May 10th. Most of us will make sure to tell our precious moms that we love them and appreciate all that they have done for us, and maybe we will treat them to something special. This day is set aside specifically to celebrate the women who birthed, nurtured and raised us.

Faces of Motherhood

Motherhood has certainly changed. The family structure doesn’t look like it used to. Today we have extended families, blended families, adopted families, single parent households, etc, and the role of motherhood has adapted to all of these changes. But we will leave the sociological and historical perspective to others much more qualified. Our intent, is to simply acknowledge the many faces of motherhood.

Does it take a village?

It is the time of year to honor the MOM in your life.  ‘Mom’  could be a sister, an aunt, your neighbor, adopted mom, birth mom, grandmother.  The world has changed, and yet there are some facts about being a mom, that have never changed. Motherhood is one of the toughest and yet most rewarding jobs any woman can have. We all work to provide the best opportunities for our children and to help them to thrive. Ideally moms share this nurturing role with other members of the family and the community.

The contribution of Dads should of course not be overlooked, but there are others in our community who also protect, empower, teach and advocate for our children. Those who contribute to making our society a better place for “our” children; who take action every day to preserve the planet for “our” children. We believe Mother’s Day should celebrate all those who are caregivers and those who make the world a better place for “our children”.

No two moms are alike

This important lady in your life deserves something new, special and tailored to her taste. We’ve selected a few distinct styles of our jewelry that might be the perfect gift to celebrate your mom, yourself or another nurturer in your life.

For the lady who is put together from head to toe and appreciates classic looks with modern style like over-sized pearls, long pieces great for layering, springtime pastels, or mixed metallics:

I loved going to work each day for 30 years as a professional career counselor. When I retired, I explored my creativity and regard for crafts until I discovered beading. At age 68 I turned my new found passion- jewelry design, into a business. At age 72 I took on learning about social media marketing and developing my computer skills. I am sharing my journey from inception, to frustration, to elation -in the hope of inspiring others that 'it is not too late to start again'. Welcome to my re-invention!

  1. I often joke that the hardest job out there is being a person BUT then throw on top of that being a mother??? Now that’s really the hardest job. And yes, of course it has incredible rewards and benefits. But when the maternal instinct kicks in…watch out. LOL Nice pieces Roz as always.

  2. Moms and mother-like figures are so important. We should be acknowledged for the hard work we do the entire year round! I celebrate all the moms in my life and thank each and every one of you for your contributions to making me the person I am and as well as what you do to impact the world around you. To you moms!

  5. It’s great to talk about Mom’s contributions and associate them with beautiful things (I wish we did it year-round!). Wearing these beautiful necklaces help amplify their inner beauty!

  6. Being a mom is HARD work! It certainly takes a village, doesn’t it Roz? You’re right though… no two moms are alike. Your jewelry is the perfect gift to show your affection and gratitude to the mama who raised ya! Gorgeous pieces for every style.

  7. My wife often says being a mom is the hardest yet most rewarding job she’s ever had. Having taken her place a few years ago for a wk while she had surgery, I can honestly agree, not easy at all.

  8. Love your lead quote from Werner Erhard! We all are unique and we all are different and what you and Beth offer with your wonderful designs, is a choice of many styles and colours: “something for everyone” as I’ve said before. And yes, the concept of motherhood is changing, yet there are many women who pass through our lives that we might see as being “mothers” to us. I’m all for celebrating women and mothers not only on Mother’s Day. Jewelry is still one of the favourite gifts I buy my mother when I travel as even as 99, she always wears jewelry to compliment her outfits! Lovely choices you show in this post, Roslyn.

  9. Being a mom is such a combination of joy and challenges. You are correct in encouraging us to honor all of those in our villages who help nourish children. Your necklaces are the perfect gift for moms and other caregivers. Well, maybe not dads.

  10. My mother would have loved your jewelry, Roz. She was always so perfectly put together, and I think I got my sense of style from her. She truly was a “super mom” in the 60’s before that was even a thing. I miss her.

  11. Great article as usual!! Having lost my Mom just a month ago, it’s going to be a difficult day for our family. As I’m looking at your pieces of jewelry my thoughts go to looking at my own mother’s jewelry and how attached we, as her daughters and granddaughters are to them. Jewelry is such a personal statement and a wonserful way to way to help someone celebrate their day!

      Sorry Lisa, you lost your mom so recently. I know how hard these holidays are for some people due to recent loss, unable to be a mom, and more. Glad you have her items to share and bring you comfort.

  12. Having the privilege of being a mother is a special blessing. I am so thankful for my own daughter who is a mother and for my 2 daughter-in-laws who are mothers of our 8 grandchildren. I am also very thankful for the mother’s that have gone before me providing great role models. My grandmother’s were a part of my life as well as my husband’s mother and my own mother. Special, special ladies! Happy Mother’s Day to you, Roslyn.

      Pat Moon, I know this year Mother’s Day will be harder without your own mom physically present. I’m sure you will surrounded by family love in many ways. You have inherited the family special traits of mom. Have a good day and all your days be happy and healthy.

  13. Motherhood had change me from the roots. After I become a Mum I realized that this is most difficult job in the world, and I totally change my priorities. Someone else became my number one.:) I agree with you that Mum is the person who is special to you.

  14. I love your angle for celebrating Mother’s Day Roz. Mothers should be celebrated, after all, the female energy of women is the fabric of life itself. We are the nurtures and home makers and our Divine Feminine Nature is the very essence of love.

    I fall in the category of single mother and I’m proud to say I’ve raised two beautiful children. They both attend university and though it wasn’t easy doing alone, I’d do it all again in a heart beat just to feel the joy, love and pleasure my children bring me.

    I am transitioning into a different phase of motherhood with my children and its funny to watch the roles change. My daughter, has become the boss of me, or so she thinks and my son, is growing into this well-grounded, mature, responsible young man who I wouldn’t have recognised as a messy, somewhat awkward, disorganised kid many moons ago!

    Unfortunately I didn’t have a very good relationship with my mother but the upside is doing things differently. I’ve ensured the relationship with my own kids didn’t resemble that of my mothers. The things I missed out on is given in abundance to my own children and we enjoy each other all the more for it.

    I hope all mothers will be lifted up and celebrated all over the world for the amazing job we do! Happy Mother’s in advance to all the wonderful mothers, including you, dear Roz

      Michelle Williams, thank you for your in depth reply, sharing your own experiences and your wisdom. I do think its more difficult when we ourselves didn’t have the best role models. We are guided by wanting to be different. Sounds like you have succeeded. I too have a daughter, my partner in our jewelry design business and a grown son who will be visiting this Mother’s Day. I get to see him 2x a year. Never enough.

  15. Roslyn your post just hits home on so many levels. Being a mom, aka mommy or mama and I love to be called has given me joy that i NEVER imagined before but with it ..there are challenges I never knew existed. Moms deserve a day to be recognized and celebrated, your incredible jewelry is the perfect gift! I like the Persian Princess, I think it would look really great with an old favorite pair of blue jeans paired up with a white blouse.
    On another note, things certainly have changed in the home and how we get to “mom” these days. I have been blessed to have 2 moms in my life, my bio mom, passed away at an early age, luckily for me, I got a back up. She has been a huge part of my life. Thanks for such a beautiful post on such an important topic

      Lisa, thank you for such a beautiful response. Yes, being a mom creates unlimited joy and challenges. Sounds like you have handled them well. Someone just purchased Persian Princess for her mom. All of our pieces are one of a kind, so I often suggest, buy it when you see it and like it.

  16. Reading your piece again, I realize how far in many ways we have come when it comes to what is a “mom”. Seems that there are quite a wide range of ways people can be mothered too. And I agree that father roles have also changed dramatically as well. We all are individual and we all are unique, so it does make sense to choose something that suits the person and their tastes. For me, if you know the person well enough, jewelry is always such a wonderful gift. Something lasting that the woman can wear for years to come!

      Thanks Beverley for your additional thoughts. It was the focus of this blog to acknowledge the uniqueness of all women therefore, unique preferences and taste.

  17. Beautiful work! I really love that Morning Glory necklace. The colors are so pretty together!
    Unfortunately my Mom passed away years ago, way to young but we do give our two daughters who are now mama’s themselves gifts every year. Jewelry is always a wonderful choice!

  18. I would not be where I am or who I am today without my parents, Roslyn but Mummy has a special place. As a child, if I had nightmares all it took was a shout of ‘Mummy’ and she’d be by my side.Thank God she is a light sleeper. 🙂 In later years, she’s supported me in my ideas and adventures even if she did not understand what I was talking about or it was unthinkable for our society and culture. Getting me a cassette of Grease or the latest Michael Jackson album without my asking for them…. I could go on. Somewhere I think she ended up making me a more independent and caring person but the ultimate compliment came when I nursed Coco back to health and camped out on the sofa barely getting any sleep. Coco is better and my mother recently told me, ‘Now you are a Mother’. Doesn’t get better, I think. By the way, I got her a set that she had been admiring in pearls, her favorite. Happy Mother’s Day, Roslyn.

      Thanks for sharing your experience with your mom. Sounds like you have a wonderful relationship.And taking care of a pet is the equivalent.

  19. I agree that it is SO important to appreciate and acknowledge the mothers in our lives (something I didn’t fully “get” until I became a mother myself). I love choosing thoughtful gifts for my mum and I see several choices in your beautiful collection above that I know she would love!!

      Thanks Sarah Best for your honest answer. I understand completely. Just a note- if you select a necklace for your mom & she prefers a different one, it can be exchanged.

  20. Love the Catalina! Mom prefers rings, so I’d have to get one for myself and wear it in her honor. 😉 P.S. Did you know that May 3 is Mother’s Day in Portugal? I didn’t; one of my LinkedIn connections mentioned it.

  21. Funny, we ordered one of the ones on this post and I had ordered off the website BEFORE checking out your blog. You aren’t lying though, Being a mom and having kids… it surely takes a village. I have one of those kids that requires many villages.. .from my friends and family in Ca, Va and now Tx. Thanks and I am sure that my mom will love her piece from you! 😉

  22. Totally agree being a mother is the most difficult and rewarding thing anyone can do
    You have to wear so many different hats.
    It seems really strange to see all the promotional items for Mothers Day in May because we celebrate it in March

  23. I didn’t realize Mother’s Day was so close until I saw pre-made gifts on display at the store today. I love the quote you have there Roslyn and also the way you write your posts, such a great way of putting together a wonderful celebration with what “mom” can really mean to someone. It’s such a great and rewarding job, the best in the world!

    And agree, you can never go wrong with jewelry as a gift 🙂

  24. Indeed, the importance of a mother to one’s child cannot be overemphasized. Celebrate Mother’s Day with a gratitude. None can please a mother than a gift made of an array of Earth and Moon designs of handmade jewelry.

  25. Salute to all the moms out there! You work around the clock, you are never off the clock and consistently put your children’s needs ahead of your own. I pray each of you get to relax and enjoy this mother’s day. Happy Mother’s Day to each of you!

  26. Each day of each year, since my mother’s passing, 15 years ago, I remember how wonderful, amazing, and incredibly beautiful, inside and out, my mother was, and I love and miss her very much!

  27. Mother’s Day is very emotional for me because it will forever be a reminder of when my mother died. I try to distract myself but everywhere there are reminders of how much I miss being able to celebrate with her. That said, I try to celebrate her life and remember everything other than those few days prior to her death.

      Beth Blacker, As I wrote this blog, I thought about all the people who have lost a mom, or couldn’t become a mom. Seems holidays/occasions brings up happy and sad emotions. Hopefully as you celebrate with your children, grandma will be present in them.
