I just finished my grandma Leona's necklace from the post before last. Oh my. I am in love with this necklace. I spent time this morning soaking and scrubbing the delicate crystals one at a time. When I started I wasn't actually sure if they were a light beige, or clear and dirty. They were definately clear and dirty. Then I carefully restrung the necklace and added a new sterling silver clasp.
I decided to add a delicate extender to be flexible on the length a little bit. And yes, the necklace is on a neck form. Don't you all have one of those laying around the house? No? Well I have a ton of them.... but alas.... that is a story for another time.
I had the wonderful idea to present my grandma with her new and improved necklace on Mother's Day. I unfortunately hadn't taken into account that we had the crazy dance weekend to contend with. Soooo, I can't wait to bring it to her tomorrow.
I can't get over how gorgeous the crystals came out. My grandma is going to look so elegant wearing her Mother's necklace. I love being able to be a part of this special memory of her Mom. x
