Mother's Day and Beyond: A celebration of all Mothers this March

Until recently, I used to think Mothers' Day was just another money-making capitalist propaganda and opportunity for big businesses to make even more money of the little folks. Yes, I love my mum and of course I always brought her a gift... but why? Why do we all feel so compelled to do this? And does it really matter? 
According to Wikipedia (Mothers Day),
 'Mother's Day is a celebration honouring the mother of the family, as well as motherhoodmaternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May.' 
The modern Mother's Day began in the United States, at the initiative of Anna Jarvis in the early 20th century, when she celebrated her mother who used to be an activist in West Virginia, and quickly became a National Holiday celebrating all mothers in the USA. The tradition quickly then spread to more countries including the UK. However internationally, many traditional celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have existed throughout the world for over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to CybeleRhea the Great Mother of the Gods, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a commemoration of Mother Church, not motherhood).' 
So regardless of which 'Mother's Day' celebration resonates with you, your family or your culture, the truth is that across the globe - we are all united in one particular way.
Now that I am a mother myself… a very busy mother to two baby girls under two; I finally understand. As mothers, we give so much of ourselves every day, so why shouldn't we have a day that celebrates us?   
The truth is I secretly want to be celebrated, I want those gifts, I want that card, and I definitely want my husband and babies to recognise the significance and importance of my maternal role within my family. As much as I feel so blessed and fortunate to have the beautiful family I have, I also recognise how HARD it is. I recognise how different my life is now, and I sometimes miss the freedom I had in my life before children.
For example, I miss having a relaxing bath without a toddler throwing toys into the water, or wearing a black top without getting dribble marks over one shoulder, or eating my favourite food (dim sum) without my toddler screaming until I share my precious dumplings with her, or lying in bed at night and singing the theme tune to ‘Hey Duggee’ in my head. At the same time, I have never laughed so much or felt more love and joy than being with my babies. Nor could I imagine a life without them in it.
In celebration of all mothers, mothers to be, mothers who were or even those who nearly were....(you know who I am talking about if you've nearly been there yourself), whether you've given birth or adopted, I wanted to create something special and totally unique to celebrate ‘us’, with a more traditional, fairy-tale like that is easily personalised ... like a Stork Necklace. 
unique mothers day gift, special jewellery for mum
The ‘Stork’ range has been created in environmentally friendly recycled sterling silver and 18ct gold vermeil. All of my designs are strongly influenced by the personal connection I feel with scenes and stories. For me the fairy tale of storks delivering new bundles of joy to expectant parents is highly emotive and I love the sense of excitement and joy it conjures up, and how graceful the storks look in flight.
I felt it was important to add the personalised element of children’s initials to represent that deep connection that mothers have with their children. As a mother myself I like to have a little reminder of them with me every day – I always smile whenever I catch a glimpse of their initials in the mirror and often find myself playing with my pendant when I’m thinking or concentrating on something.
silver stork necklace, personalised gift for mum
For the mothers who no longer have a baby, or never got to have one, I felt it was important to add a way to remember any babies or loved ones that may have been lost, which is why I have added the 9ct gold star charms at the fastening. I wear two-star charms at the fastening to remember my twins who I sadly miscarried. I feel that this way they are always with me and part of the family.
For the entire month of March (and not just on Mother's Day), I am offering a very special 10% off all my Stork Necklaces, to help celebrate you, or your mother. Just remember to enter the code MotherMarch20 at checkout.
