Traditional Anniversary Gifts By Year: The Meaning –

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][heading]Historic Origins[/heading][vc_column_text]Traditional Anniversary Gifts By Year – Wedding anniversary gifts have historic origins. Giving a gift by year is said to date back to the Holy Roman Empire. Husbands  were said to have given a gift of silver in by crowning their wives with a silver wreathe in on their twenty-fifth anniversary.

A gift of gold was said to then follow with a golden wreath on the fiftieth wedding anniversary. The twentieth century, has led to such traditions being followed and each and every anniversary being represented by a named gift.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][divider line_type=”Full Width Line” line_thickness=”1″ divider_color=”default”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom”][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][heading]

Aside this, my intention is really embrace the core of my business and the true reason I set it up in the first place. This really was always about the designing and making of unconventional jewellery!

Along my journey, it seems I have undertake less of such things, so this year I have promised myself change.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][divider line_type=”Full Width Line” line_thickness=”1″ divider_color=”default”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom”][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][heading]

Imperfect As The New Perfect!

[/heading][vc_column_text]I have set myself the challenge to make a piece of jewellery per month, made from the material marked by the traditional anniversary gift by year. My intention is to track my story on the bench via social media and blog posts.

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line”][image_with_animation image_url=”2871″ alignment=”center” animation=”Fade In” border_radius=”none” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100{bf9a968572e7ebb68f246158f0b8da6c4ea2bd1e341039728af7ec2198186826}”][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]I’m excited to see where this creative journey takes me. I am aiming to avoid the aim of perfection (the killer of so much creative flow) and allow myself to see this simply as a journey of learning. This in itself is a tough one for me as I always strive for my ultimate capability, as so many of us do!

However with life as it goes and the time restraints of still running a business alongside my new challenge, perfect I am sure will not be attainable! So I am in training, imperfect is the new me! I’d love to get feedback along the way, so do join me, I’d love to hear from you![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”center” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom”][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][nectar_btn size=”large” open_new_tab=”true” button_style=”see-through-2″ hover_text_color_override=”#ffffff” icon_family=”none” url=”https://www.instagram.com/saloukee/” text=”Keep up to date with the release of the series by following us on Instagram.”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
