This is the personal letter I sent with this custom designed beaded necklace and earring set! I just love the sparkle in the pieces and the colors are so soothing!
SURPRISE!!!! I am delighted to be able to create something special and one of a kind for such a beautiful, milestone birthday! It’s not everyday a beautiful woman celebrates the 40th anniversary of her 40th birthday!
I designed this necklace very special just for you. I’m calling it Mermaid kisses. The lampwork focal was designed by my good friend Julianna Cannon of JulsBeads in Alabama. I know I’ve created other custom jewelry pieces for you featuring her glass beads. The lampwork beads in the necklace are also her creations. To me, this stone spoke of ocean waves lapping the shore. I’ve been doing much walking on the beach here in Florida and collecting seashells is so meditative for me. These little mini-conch shells are found on an island that is only able to be enjoyed by boat. I picked this up on the 4th of July when I was with a group of friends in a couple of boats, relaxing, enjoying the sun and feeling the waves for a day on the water. I created the fringe to look like coral, wrapping around the seashell to move as you move, just like it would in the ocean.
There are a couple different gemstones in the necklace. The round matte finished aqua colored stones are druzy agates. Each one has an opening like a window to peek at it’s precious druzy crystal center. I’ve also used several amethysts in this design. Amethyst is a very powerful healing gemstone for mind, body and soul. It connects you at a deeper spiritual level and helps protect you from negative energies. It plays well on a metaphysical level with the agates to provide you a cloak of lightness, energy and love.
I’ve made the perfect pair of earrings that are super light so they are comfortable to wear. They are on leverback earring findings so you don’t have to worry about them falling out of your earring holes. They boast a big pop of color and sparkle to perfectly match the necklace or to be worn all by themselves!
I hope every chance you can wear this jewelry will remind you of what a special lady you are and how much we all love you! I hope your birthday is simply magnificent and you feel surrounded in love!
SURPRISE!!!!! Lots of love,
