About Eternal Yesterday
This Pile of Stuff Started it All
I started Eternal Yesterday because of this pile of stuff you see. This is the stuff that I received from my Grandparents passing. Both of them always made me feel loved and important. I really miss them. So what do you do with some old art supplies and a collection of Gone with the Wind items. I put it in my basement and see it every now and then. It always reminds me of them. They were great people and they deserve more than a contemplative moment in the basement every few months. I wanted to be able to bring their memory into my life when I needed them.
Rings came into the picture because my wife couldn’t wear a wedding ring that might puncture latex gloves. So I found a way to make something that they found acceptable. Right around the same time is when I acquired the pile of stuff you see here. Below is the first ring I ever made.
The First Ring I Ever Made Was For My Father
The light sections were wood from an old vineyard box owned by my great grandfather. The black sections were taken from a name plate that sat on my grandfathers desk his whole working career. I stained it slightly with wine made by my father and I.
This ring holds the labor of 4 generations of my family. He doesn’t wear it all the time, but I always notice when he decides to put it on for a day. When I saw him do that I knew it worked. I knew that having an anchor to your memories and history could mean to others what it means me. I started this because maybe it will mean the same for you too.
Please give me a call. I promise, if you trust me with your most important memory I’ll do everything I can to make sure it will last forever.
