As a small business owner, you understand that sometimes the items you carry can offer comfort to a customer to coping with grief in a way that nothing and no one else can. It is with that end in mind that led Kathy Bernu to create the gorgeous Memorial Tear and make it available through her website.
If you are looking for a small trinket that can mean so much to your customers in their time of grief, you need to take a look at Kathy Bernu Design.
The Beauty of the Memorial Tear
The Memorial Tear is a simple image, a rose encapsulated by a single tear, but that simplicity is the secret of its beauty. It ensures that the meaning is not difficult to interpret or understand, and yet is no less important for all of that.
It evokes the words of Paul in I Corinthians 13:8, 13, which show that love survives everything, even death. The rose acts as the symbol of love, and its presence in the tear shows that grief is both an expression of that love and that it is ever-present, staying with the bereaved even after death of their loved one. The Memorial Tear is available in different styles as pendants, lapel pins, lockets, charm bracelets, rings, rosaries, ornaments, photo frames, sympathy cards, tokens and stones!
But where did the idea originate?
The Memorial Tear Story
When a person grieves, they are in the middle of an emotional maelstrom that often leaves them searching for something, anything to hold onto for support. This happened to owner Kathy Bernu following the loss of two people she loved.
She was already a jewelry designer and stole time in the early mornings to do drawings, but this particular morning she realized she had been mindlessly drawing tears. She immediately equated the tears on the page with those which had been endlessly spilling down her cheeks for so long. She took a portion of another design and placed it over the tear, and the result left her crying once more.
It was a rose, and with that the Memorial Tear was born.
