Heirloom Necklace & Earrings for Anna

I did it!  I actually used one of my most favorite treasures in a piece of jewelry.  And what fun it was!
It wasn't difficult; it seemed to almost put itself together.  I love it when that happens!


I listed it in my Etsy shop this afternoon.  You can find it here.  It's very expensive and I truly hate that.  I've invested so much into the elements I've used, I had to make it expensive.  I still hate it though.


Hopefully those who look at it will consider it an heirloom piece to be worn and enjoyed for years and for generations to come.  Hopefully.
My niece Anna was allowed to get her ears pierced when she turned 13.  She was a happy girl!


When I visited my sister Marty, her husband Tim and her daughters Anna and Grace last week, I gave a pair of Ugg boots to Grace.  They were too small for me.


Grace is younger than Anna, but has larger feet.  The Uggs fit her perfectly.  She was one happy girl!


And although Anna did not say a word, I could tell she was wishing I had a pair of Ugg boots that fit her too.  I didn't.


So, today I made Anna earrings.  I'll get them in the mail to her tomorrow morning and will keep my fingers crossed that she like them.


They aren't Uggs, but they might help!


It's 66 degrees in York today.  I took Rose and Bella for a hike.  What JOY!!!!!
