Margie and Bill Lombard's StoryPins™ Collection
StoryPins™ were born during a crisis in the life of jewelry artist Margie Lombard. One day in meditation she found great comfort in a verse that came to her. Sensing this was a message meant to bring understanding and clarity, she wrote the poem "Awaken the child within..." It would become the foundation of her first StoryPin™.
Margie believes the inspirational stories on her pins are gifts given to her to share. "It's my wish that they will be something special to give yourself or those you love," says Margie.
Each StoryPin™ is sterling silver and 14k gold and comes with a sterling adaptor so it can also be worn as a pendant. Several have bezel-set, carved, moonstone faces. Each StoryPin™ is hand fabricated, signed, dated and comes with a card bearing the StoryPin's engraved poem.
The poetry and designs are original with the exception of "Shoot for the moon" and "Reach for the stars", both of which have unknown authors. StoryPins™ is a trademark, and the original poetry and designs are protected under U.S. Copyright and Trade Dress Laws.
About the Artists
Margie and her husband, Bill, have been making jewelry since 1976. They live in upstate New York. A son, Paul, and his wife Diane, inspired "Life's many blessings." "Kitty Cats" and "Puppy Dogs" are true stories about their two dogs and five cats.
Their goal is to create, in beauty, lasting treasures for you to wear, enjoy and find inspiration.
