My Best Friend Wedding – Mo Anam Cara

Several hours left before my Best Friend’s wedding. At this touchy moment, please let me share a bit about the three of us.

We met almost 25 years ago in kindergarten and became Best Friends since then. As mentioned before, there are three of us: me -the most annoying one. Oh you can count on me to get into trouble faster than your eyes blink lol-, Retno -the bride to be, our singer wannabe lol-, and Inge -youngest one, but once she pretended to be the oldest, pfffttttt.

Lately I had a pretty big problems with Retno, and put Inge in a quite difficult position (I’m sorry!!!). I got mad at her over some problems but I can not say it assertively. Instead I kept it inside and it made me feel bad.
Few days ago, I wrote on my facebook status how I feel. Being a bad friend, I had no courage to tell her how I feel. That made me feel bad. And started to blame her, and then started to blame myself, and then started to blame other people. After I vent I feel better, much better.

I won’t tell you the details, I don’t wanna bored you to death with this thing. I just wanna say that after I vent I come to realize that I love her so much, that I don’t wanna let anyone ruin our friendship, and that I can’t keep my anger too long.

I decided I wanna give her a special wedding gift. Something I make with my own hand. Something to represent our friendship.
I came up with this design

Based on Celtic knots for friendship and it’s spiritual beliefs about soul bonding and connecting, this design incorporate natural gemstones and wrapped in 999 fine silver.

Mo Anam Cara (pronounced: muh ann-imm karrah) is a Gaelic phrase for soul-sister.
Celtic spiritual believe that actually soul radiates over physical bodies and it make contact with other souls around. When two (maybe more) souls meet and form deep bond between them, it is said that they have found their Anam Cara. (source).

In this design each dents and asymmetric parts are left as it is intentionally, as a reminder that our friendship might encounter troubles and differences, and that it’s not perfect at all. But in the end, I realize that I love her so much that it will top over every problems we have.

Peridot is her birthstone which is said enhances the healing and harmony of relationships of all kind, particularly marriage. More about peridot can be read here
I really hope she will live a happy marriage, ever after.

Happy Wedding Day, sis!!!!!
