Last night I attended an event for Alzheimers to raise money sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association, National Capital Area Chapter in Virginia.

This group put on a truly wonderful event. My friend Tara invited me to go with her as she had been invited as a special guest. It was a wonderful evening full of music and a reminder of this disease and that we all need to do what we can to help the research continue. I lost my mother to this disease 2 years ago. In her honor I started a line of jewelry that I call the forget-me-nots. It is the official flower of the Alzheimer’s association. They are hand made out of pure silver. Each leaf is sculpted and the flower is created petal by petal. Then a sapphire is hand set in the center of each one. These are truly a labor of love and I think they can honor someone special.

In honor of my mother a percentage of all sales are donated to the Richmond Alzheimer association.  To see our press release click on the link.
