IN PROFILE

MY FAVORITE THINGS: SUSAN PURNELL

The owner of Kuhn’s Jewelers in Salisbury, the fourth-oldest, continuously operated jewelry store in the country, shares the stories behind her most treasured possessions

1. This is a journal of my son Ted’s songs. He gave it to me a few years ago, with the songs he had written to date. Every Christmas, he adds the new songs he has written since. I’m so proud of his talent and that he is still pursuing his bliss in the music industry. I keep this journal by my bed and look at it when I need inspiration.

 

2. This is the ledger that my dad wrote in every day. I still use it to record sales each and every day, as well. I love looking back to the years that are in his handwriting. He had terrible handwriting, but it was distinctive, and he sure knew how to add!



3. This photo of my mom and dad was taken on their wedding day as they were leaving the reception. They just look so happy, and they remained that way for over 50 years. 



4.  This is my ring, which I designed using my mom’s engagement diamond. She wore it for 63 years, even after dad died, and I love looking down on my finger and knowing how special it was to her for so long. 

 

5.  This is my dad’s Rolex, which I “blinged out” and made more feminine by replacing the dial with a mother-of-pearl and a diamond, with diamonds around the bezel. I need this size watch in order to see the time, and it reminds of me of Dad every day.
