Has someone made a difference in your life? Sometimes it's all the things they do. Sometimes it's a kind word, a little validation, or just being there for you.
My "It Matters to This One" necklace recognizes how much the things we do matter to another. The washer is made of solid .925 sterling silver and each letter is individually hand stamped. The starfish is high-quality pewter. Shown on a sterling silver box chain.
This necklace is gift boxed in my signature packaging, which includes this story excerpt:
"While wandering a deserted beach at dawn, stagnant in my work, I saw a man in the distance bending and throwing as he walked the endless stretch toward me. As he came near, I could see that he was throwing starfish, abandoned on the sand by the tide, back into the sea. When he was close enough I asked him why he was working so hard at this strange task. He said that the sun would dry the starfish and they would die. I said to him that I thought he was foolish. there were thousands of starfish on miles and miles of beach. One man alone could never make a difference. He smiled as he picked up the next starfish. Hurling it far into the sea he said, "It makes a difference for this one." I abandoned my writing and spent the morning throwing starfish."
~Loren Eisley, The Star Thrower (1978)
