Welcome to the Miss Mourning blog site.
Mourning jewellery and customs are subjects I find simply fascinating and over the coming weeks and months I hope to share my insights with you…
I cannot tell you when my obsession with mourning jewellery first began, it seem to be something instilled within me, I can however, offer a reason; the idea that somebody loved another so intensely, that even after death, they choose to commemorate that person with an adornment with the intention to keep that person close, is a sentiment I hold dear, which ignites my passion for all things mourning.
Mourning jewels and the associated ephemera is steeped in symbolism, each piece recounts a tale of love and loss, welcoming the viewer in to a vivid world so personal and meaningful. These lovingly made pieces survive to this day, an ever lasting testament to these peoples lives.
I cannot claim to be an expert, as one is always learning, all I can offer is a promise to bring you a heartfelt and informative journey through the world of mourning jewellery.
