25 Things That Inspire Me to Create Jewelry - #15 Cemeteries




# 15 Cemeteries

Before there were public parks people gathered in cemeteries to meet with others and enjoy the sunny days as well as pay respects to their dead loved ones. Some people even built elaborate mausoleums where they invited people to enjoy small performances and parties. Sometimes public parks are not quiet enough and I love to stroll through very old cemeteries admiring the craftsmanship that went into carvings and iron work that the adorn graves. It's peaceful and give me time to clear me head. This photo was taken in Paris at Pere-Lachaise.
