Supporting a Courageous Mom's Journey of Grief and Gratitude

The heart behind Dot & Dash Design can best be shared through our community members’ personal stories. This line was created with a mission to share encouragement in a beautiful way to help navigate life’s ups and downs.

This month, our team received this very moving custom order from Kristy R., “Thank you and your whole amazing company for this beautiful creation! My shattered heart is actually smiling right now, and I will be wearing this with all the feels, all the time. This necklace was actually gifted to me by my special cousin. She paid for the necklace and then sent me the link for customization.  Something very few people know is that I was wearing a Dot & Dash ‘Choose Joy’ necklace the night my daughter passed away and continue to wear it as inspiration to cherish my blessings while not getting lost in this grief. I am a forever fan of your work!!”

The necklace Kristy custom designed had her beautiful daughter’s first and middle name ... and she included this explanation with her custom order: “This is the name of my oldest daughter who passed away 10 months ago. I will be so honored to wear one of your pieces bearing her name. Thank you for the beautiful work you do.”

Courtney, of Team Dot & Dash, replied to this amazing and brave mom, “Kristy, Thank you so much for sharing your story with us. We are always honored to be able to make a uniquely personal gift for someone. We are deeply moved and are very grateful that our jewelry can be of some comfort to you.” 

Photos shared include the necklace ordered by this amazing mom, Kristy.
Pictures also include her beautiful daughters, Laikin Melayne and Libby Maecyn.
