I’m a widow with 2 sons, 2 granddaughters, 1 grandson, 2 daughters-in-law, and 1 dog.

    Wow Elaina! This necklace is exquisite and awesome. The colors just grab me because no matter what part of the necklace I’m looking at, it just grabs me in a way that is just so sweet, and as Pam said, so calming.
