Kidney Donor & Recipient Necklace Duo Set

This is by far the coolest most sentimental custom order I have ever done. A client wanted to do something special for her Mom and her sister as a Christmas gift. Mom was the gracious recipient of her daughter's kidney (aka "the gift" within the family)... My client wanted to celebrate the success of the operation with a symbolic treasure and broached me with her ideas. We contemplated several options and in our brainstorming, then it donned on me, the top of a heart could take on the shape of a kidney. The open kidney represents the sister who donated, and closed kidney represents the Mom as the recipient. The date of the surgery was stamped on the back. This story still gives me chills and such a warm fuzzy feeling because I got to be part of a treasured piece of jewelry for the family to commemorate this selfless act of love. Made with sterling silver, brass and copper.
