“A Wish for her Future”


Description from Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick: I made necklaces for Sam and her friends for graduation. Her friends' pieces each had 4mm beads with pewter spacers and Green Girl pendants chosen just for them. Sam's has 6mm blue opal with Czech glass, pewter spacers and the Green Girl "wish" starfish.

    Thank you!

    Here’s just Sam (and the necklace!)
    I also posted it in the design gallery. I added an extension chain because she tends to like longer necklaces.

    Such a photogenic group, Jeanne! Sam looks utterly gorgeous in her necklace and gown (my high school’s colors were marroon and white). And I see a couple of really proud parents too! :D

    Oh yeah! Each one of those cords stands for some sort of accomplishment. She certainly beat me with “highest honors”!

    Thanks so much! We certainly are proud… am I gushing?

    Her friends’ necklaces have the gg charms that say “fly”, “safe” and “dream” Lovely pieces of courses, but not as nice as Sam’s!!!

    Thank you ladies!

    Lynn, the necklace was a surprise gift. She had admired the blue opals and the starfish before, which is why I chose them. Opal is her birthstone.

    Julia, it always amazes me when people say she looks like me, because when Sam was little she was the spitting image of Larry. Apparently her eyes are like mine too, except blue.

    And thank you Angela for the warm wishes. :D

    Kitty Chicky Cat – The blue eyes and blonde hair came from Dad. My eyes are brown. He’s happy her size and shape came from me. At least that’s how I was at her age LOL Although she is slightly taller than me (I’m wearing heals, Sam’s barefoot in the photo. Check out the red heels in her hand!)
