MERRY CHRISTMAS

Hope you all enjoyed your Christmas.  My family was here at our home for Christmas Eve as is tradition, but it was bittersweet as our Mother was not with us this year as she passed away last April from ovarian cancer.  As a tribute to her, I made a pendant for each of my siblings from some of her vintage jewelry.  I got the idea as I was going through some of her old jewelry (lots of Sarah Coventry-yum!) and spotted her charm bracelet that I always remember her wearing when I was a child. 
The bracelet had a silhouette of each of her children with our names and birthdates engraved and I got the idea that each of us should have their silhouette.  So I took the bracelet apart and created a new pendant for each of us by adding other charms, a pearl from another of her pieces, and hung them from a large hoop earring so the silhouette hung exactly in the middle of the earring.  For one of my brothers though, I used a vintage key instead of the earring.  This key is from our Uncle Joe's house in Brooklyn before he died in 1975.  I didn't take any pictures of my creations but once I finish mine I will add a picture of it so you can get the idea of how they all looked.

On a much lighter note, you probably notice that my blog looks a bit different and my pics are all missing.  I had time this evening to 'tweak' my blog and managed to delete the pictures.  "Good Intentions" right?  I should have all of them back up in a day or so. 
Till soon!

Hi Marianna,
I like your blog a lot. I was one of my inspirations to finally start one of my own. I'd love to see the pendants you made, what a lovely rememberance of your mom.
