Where Bluebirds Brood by Teresa Kiplinger
This modern memento mori cuff bracelet is designed as a piece of mourning jewelry and is etched with my original poem of loss, Where Bluebirds Brood.
Such happiness had I with you that
bluebirds brood and vie
to rest where once you whispered–
to nest among the shape where
a moment stayed your cheek–
to sing the air where scent of your hair fades–
and bathe in light that falls
where you cannot sleep.
One of a kind liquid enameled illustration, sterling silver, original poem. Etched, torch fired.
This piece is part of my Tiny Catastrophes series, a collection of limited edition, one-of-a-kind memento mori pieces that explore the fragility of life and our desire to prevent, explain, and control the uncontrollable.
