The necklace I made reminds me of my Mom. She is the subject of my Memories and Thanks blog. I have wonderful memories of my Mom and like everyone else, sad ones as well. But this one is for all the happy ones...
My mom taught me a lot when I was a kid that I couldn't wait to get away from when I got older, but the joke is on me, because the older I get, the more like her I become. And I know now that is not a bad thing. One thing was recycling and not throwing things away that you could possibly use in the future! She tended to hoard, she was not a hoarder like we know them today, but she didn't throw much away that wasn't trash! So the beige beads in this set, are beads that I recycled from a necklace I bought from a yard sale. Mom would like that. The rectangle beads are new and for the life of me, I cannot remember what they are! Sorry about that!
Here is the necklace set that I made last year, but it reminds me of my mom...soft and sweet, pink and tan, and to me, beautiful, even if I say so myself. I love you Mom, think of you so often and know I will see you again. Much love!
