***It is with a broken heart that we share the sad news that the inspiration for Imperfectly Perfect Jewelry, Virginia "Ginnie" Miller, lost her battle with Frontotemporal Degeneration.
Ginnie's limitless love and support continues to be the inspiration for this jewelry.
How it all began..
I never intended to make jewelry.
My mom was diagnosed with Frontotemporal Degeneration in June of 2014. (I know - I had never heard of it either.) It is a form of dementia that initially steals a person's ability to communicate and ultimately steals their body.
When I realized that my mom, (voted "Most Talkative" in her high school class), could not recite her phone number or address. We started looking for some type of medical bracelet that she could wear to access that information when she couldn't. That is when the search for a functional and fashionable bracelet began.
All of the medical bracelets that we found were not aesthetically pleasing and did not provide the information that we wanted. So we decided to make one for her and a few others for friends and family and from there Imperfectly Perfect Jewelry took on a life of its own.
Each piece of jewelry I make is hand stamped, (yes - each letter and number is hand stamped one by one.) which is why each piece is Imperfectly Perfect.
I am honored to create jewelry that is mindful, motivating and meaningful.
Thank you for your continued support.- Wendy
