After making the Que Será, Será hand stamped necklace that I recently posted about, I decided that I’d like to continue in that vein and create another piece with the title of one of my favorite songs, Let It Be. I could- and do- listen to The Beatles alll day long. Let It Be, like Que Será, Será, is a song that offers comfort to its listeners, advising them that everything will work itself out if they relax and let whatever is going to happen play itself out. Paul McCartney, in an interview with Reader’s Digest, once explained where he got the inspiration for Let It Be and its significance,
“So in this dream twelve years [after she passed away], my mother appeared, and there was her face, completely clear, particularly her eyes, and she said to me very gently, very reassuringly: “Let it be.”
It was lovely. I woke up with a great feeling. It was really like she had visited me at this very difficult point in my life and gave me this message: Be gentle, don’t fight things, just try and go with the flow and it will all work out….
I thought it was special, so I played it to the guys and ’round a lot of people, and later it also became the title of the album, because it had so much value to me, and because it just seemed definitive, those three little syllables. Plus, when something happens like that, as if by magic, I think it has a resonance that other people notice too.
So those words are really very special to me, because not only did my mum come to me in a dream and reassure me with them at a very difficult time in my life – and sure enough, things did get better after that – but also, in putting them into a song, and recording it with the Beatles, it became a comforting, healing statement for other people too.”
I think that Let It Be is an incredibly beautiful song, and I thought that incorporating it into this necklace would be a great reminder of this inspirational mantra:
The antique gold doves and green verdite beads accent the song title and lyrics and give the necklace a hippie/bohemian vibe (my favorite style!) Hope you like it!
