    Wanda I love this necklace. Want to sister adopt me and make one just like it for me? Isn’t it funny. I make tons of jewelry and have tons more that I’ve bought and yet when I see a pretty, pretty I still want more! I guess I’m just a selfish little jewelry hog. I know your real sister will love this beautiful piece. Lucky girl! :)

    Lol Nanci. Well sure I can add another sister. :) I have 4 sister and 1 brother, lucky guy- haha. I’m the youngest. As for hogging the jewelry, I seem to do a fair share of that also. My hubby just shakes his head at me.
