This is Jen Burke. This week KVO Collections would like to name our oval necklace after her. Jen is one of my dearest friends. She was my first friend when I moved to Darien and has continued to be a very important part of my life. Whenever I have a parenting question and need a sound and grounded opinion, I go to Jen. Whenever I have a funny story I want to laugh with Jen first. When I want to cry, I cry to Jen. We see oval shapes everyday in life and we do not necessarily think much about this shape. However, there are many meanings to the shape of the oval and all say something about Jen. This shape with its rounded edge represents softness and approachability. Jen’s warmth made her approachable right from the start of our friendship and her kindness makes the often “harsh” world seem softer. The curve of the oval also signifies a sense of integrity and harmony. Jen is trustworthy and honest….all things that are paramount in a friendship. She is a professional organizer and creates harmony in spaces wherever she goes!! The oval shape also has a sense of freedom of movement which represents power and energy. Jen is one of the most fit and strong women I know. She is a role model for women that we can be strong, powerful, beautiful and feminine all at the same time. Lastly, the oval shape symbolizes connection and community. Jen has a gift to connect with people and make them feel safe, loved and make them feel like they matter in this world. By community, I also mean family. She has an unbelievable family which is due in large part to her attention, love, and care. May we present you with the Jen Necklace…..
