She Loves the Necklace!

Posted by Matt on December 30 at 02:14 pm

As promised, I’m updating you all on Deidra’s Christmas present. As you probably guessed, she loves it!

Pretty Excited!

Pretty Excited!

To be honest, I think she knew that I was making her a necklace, but she had no idea what it was going to look like. She really likes the design and the stones used, but she loves the amount of time and thought that went into making it even more. In fact, she cried a little when I showed her all of my recent posts. I think she was truly amazed at how involved you were in the whole process. So, thank you so much for helping me make this a special Christmas gift for my wife!

After seeing her wear it, my favorite part is the way the blue-green chrysocolla brings out the color of her eyes. I know that sounds really corny, but I’ve always really liked them.

Since we did a lot of dressing up for the holidays, Deidra has been able to wear the necklace almost everyday. Like I said before, she wears a lot of purples, teals and browns, so it has worked out beautifully.

Again, I want to thank you all for helping me with the necklace. If she could, she would probably wear it every day. I hope you all had a great holiday and are looking forward to the New Year.

By the way, if you’re not familiar with the story, here’s a list of related posts:

    Matt – She looks lovely in it. I’m glad that you managed to suprise her (if only with what it looks like). That is a totally happy face in your pictures.

    You’ve got some talent. She looks very pretty wearing it. She “glows”. Keep up the good work…
