My mom offered to make me a necklace to wear on my wedding day. At first I was cringing - her usual pieces include chunky beads in garish colors but when I wear jewelry it is always very understated. I didn''t want to hurt her feelings, so I spent a few hours looking at photos online and sending her links.

This morning she emailed to say that she finished the necklace. I was really nervous when I opened the photos, but it turned out GREAT!

These photos are terrible - mom obviously needs a photography class...

Second photo

The dark beads are supposedly purple and aren''t nearly as dark as they look in the photos.

Lol! I can''t wait to see it on. I was worried too when you mentioned it, but I''m rather impressed!

When will you get it?

What a special gift for your wedding day. It looks very elegant and dainty. It also looks like you''ll be able to wear it again. As much as I look some of the super blingy wedding jewelry, I demure ''cause there aren''t a whole of days where it makes sense for me to put on a dazeling diamond necklace.

What a lovely piece! I''m glad it came out to your liking so everyone wins! I bet your mother was happy to contribute something handmade to your wedding outfit. My mother makes gemstone jewelery as well and I am hoping she will make me some earrings and embellish a haircomb for me.

Looking forward to seeing the necklace on you!

hello all,
How special to have your Mom make something you love to wear.What other colors will you be using in the wedding party? Are you going to be using some purple to accent the necklace or do you just love purple?

It is a very regal and elegant color and I bet you will love wearing the necklace for the same reasons.

an exotic setting is fun…

OK, I FINALLY took better photos. It only took me six weeks.


I don''t really have a bridal party, but the purple color is really close to the purple on the hair pins I bought today.
It is my favorite color and I''m loving incorporating small touches of it.

Closer up. The beads look much more blue here than they are in real life. Lighting was bad today, sorry!

Hey, I''ve had a bit going on during those weeks!

No neck shots yet. Ken is a bit busy with his geeks. I''ll try and get help from him tomorrow.

Except my name isn''t Barbie!

Ok, I''ll try and get neck shots tomorrow after I play with makeup at the Clinique counter.
