    I like your necklace too. I am a cancer survivor of 11 months. This looks semi simple to make. Finding components is biggest challenge. I like in a small town. Don’t think these came from Hobby Lobby.

    Thanks ladies! A very special lady will soon be wearing this. She said that people will see this beautiful necklace and not even notice that she has lost her hair. We are all stronger than we realize…aren’t we?! :)
