“Mother's Necklace”


Description from Granny Nancy: Imagine 4 strands twisted around in a 16" (or 18") mother's necklace. In my case,husband and #2 son are emerald, #1 son is garnet, grandson is peridot, and rock crystal instead of diamond for my granddaughter. There aren't enough rows for DILs or myself.

But color enhanced emeralds and bright red garnets sparkling with the peridots and rock crystals would make a yummy necklace all twisted together. And it would be holiday festive as well.

    How lovely! A piece that will have meaning and most certainly can become a heirloom!

    I already have a lot of those except some small rock crystal. My emerald beads are not the pretty color heat treated ones – my they are expensive.

    This is beautiful, Granny! I always wanted mom jewelry but I had my kids in unharmonious months! (July, March, December, March) Maybe if I add in the 4 inlaws and granddaughter it would look good! :)

    you can always try it with small rondelles and try a bracelet first.

    Very pretty. My family members are February, May and August. So that’s amethyst with the emerald and peridot. I’ve thought about making a piece for my mom, but hadn’t thought about a twist. Great idea. :)

    Since I learned that “emerald” is the color for the year 2013, I’m going to design “myself” a necklace with a twist. I bought lots of green stuff plus I have a large supply in my stash already. Don’t hold your breat for a picture but I’ll get it made eventually.
