Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!

When I can, I like to make something for my mother on Mother's Day. It reminds me of simpler days of being a child, when a little painting of flowers, or a macaroni necklace, were the best presents my mom could imagine receiving from me. This year I was inspired by a shell I found on the Long Branch beach recently when my mother was in town for a visit. The shell had a perfect little hole in the top of it, and looked to me like it was just waiting for someone to come along and find it and help it fulfill its next life as a necklace. So I did.

At first I wasn't sure what kind of beads would work with it, but when I found some flourite at a local bead shop I thought it was perfect. The sea-blue and purple colors reminded me of my mother, and I thought they would also complement the shell nicely.

Here is a photo of the necklace. I hope you like it too.
