I think her story might be the reason why I always loved swans. I find them so beautiful.
I think my love of swans had something to do with the Ugly Duckling, as well. That poor baby swan always broke my heart. I wish I could have had him over for tea to help him feel better.
I sketched and stitched these swans onto brooches and pendants as a way to commemorate my grandmother's swan story.
Now if only I could remember the details of the story. I'll have to ask my sister if she remembers.
Please stop by my shop if you would like to pick up a brooch or pendant.
