Fan Mail - the story of a necklace

This is the story of a necklace. The necklace was one of those "experiments" of mine in putting to use, my many pearls (glass, not real, I'm afraid) and bits of shell.

My mom's knitting group had mentioned wanting to see my case of pretties so I sent it along one Friday afternoon. The lovely ladies bought some pieces from me, one of which was this necklace. The trouble was, another lady wanted the same necklace! I was able to make a duplicate - as I said, I have many pearl and shell beads. In any case I received a note from her the other day with a request for yet another necklace of the same kind but made out of a pearl necklace she already had and she asked me if I'd share the story here on my blog. Here's the note she sent.

More of a Good Thing...

Molly made some beautiful necklaces and sent her sample case to the Friday Women's Fellowship at church to make additional sales. Two ladies loved this one necklace so much that one was an instant sale and one was ordered.

Ramona took her necklace home with her and kept thinking about her sister's upcoming visit from Canada and what a wonderful surprise this necklace would be for her.

We all met at the Oregon Coast and when our picture was being taken, Ramona slipped it around her sister's neck.

Darlene loved this necklace so very, very much and it matched her earrings, ring and her blouse.

This beautiful necklace now resides in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada and Ramona would like to have a duplicate made for herself.

Isn't that so sweet? How tickled I am to hear about something I made becoming such a thoughtful gift to sister. I love to hear stories of where my jewelry goes, and who it goes to.

Thank you very much Ramona for sharing your story!

That is very sweet! I think a lot of people have stories but they don't share them thinking that they are no big deal.

I am so glad that she shared it with you.

That's fantastic! The necklace is really lovely - no wonder she wanted several. Congrats on the sales. :) Theresa

Beautiful! I love how the pearls compliment the shell.
