Jewelry designer Theresa Kaz has designed some beautiful heart jewelry. Right, this is not a new idea for jewelry, but for Theresa it means so much and is very close to the heart.

She and her husband and sons lost their home to a fire and none of the family possessions were salvageable. She said that she will always be grateful to the firefighters going into a 3 alarm fire and doing all they could to salvage what they could, but eventually, the house had to come down and they had to start over. There have been donations, of clothing, meals, and the local police department gave her sons gift cards to replace toys they lost in the fire.

Ms. Kaz said she has been overwhelmed with all those who have done so much for her and her family during this crisis. So the heart-shaped creations have really taken on a new meaning and are more than just hearts.
