Grandmothers Jewelry Box
Grandmothers Jewelry Box

My grandmother Paula S. came to the US from Puerto Rico in 1925 with my Grandfather who was born in Chile. One thing my grandmother really loved was jewelry. She had all sorts of rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. Her mother Gloria gave her the jewelry box when she was a child. She came to the US and kept all her special jewelry in it. Once she got older and had a son who is my father and once he got married she gave the jewelry box to his wife my mother. To this day my mother keeps her jewelry in the box to remember my grandmother. This jewelry box is really important to me because one day I will get the jewelry box and I will get to have something of my own from my grandmother Paula. I also connect to my grandmother through it because I love jewelry, and it was such a big part of her childhood and her whole life. I will also be able to feel like I met my great grandmother Gloria and feel connected to her as well. I was actually named after Gloria. My parents used the G from her name for me and my brother's middle names, so mine is Grace and my brother's middle name is George.
