Chambered Nautilus

 

Chambered Nautilus

Chambered nautilus

Box-inlaid cross-sectioned slice

mother’s mirrored chest 

Christmas gift from Dad

with two of her necklaces

Freshwater pearls, jade 

“Do you know how to 

tell real jade?” he asks. I don’t.

“Real jade beads feel cold.”

I touch them to see~

and realize they are the

real deal – as she was! 

Grateful for pieces

worn by my mother – daughters

love these gifts the most.
