Things We Love: Charm Bracelets

Our mom wanted Porter to carry her memories and journeys with her -- with great style.  So, a gold charm bracelet began. There's a streetcar from San Francisco; a fleur de lis and a saxophone from New Orleans; a gold nugget from the Bolivian gold mine our dad ran in the '70s; an "H" for Hovey; a hotdog for Coney Island summers; an elephant, because they're wonderful; the Arch de Triomphe for our time in Paris; a palm tree from Pasadena; the heart for love; Porter's baby ring with a tiny garnet (her birth stone); a camera for her passion; and the Statue of Liberty for our new home.
