Why I LOVE what I do!

Last month, I was asked to create a necklace for a friend of mine whose Son and Daughter-in-Law were expecting a new baby . . . a Baby Girl! This is so special because they have two beautiful little boys, and Grandma really wanted to celebrate this sweet birth.

So, the necklace had to be PINK, and have the #3 attached for the three little kiddos. Then I just started adding little trinkets; a heart, a Vintage French Virgin Mary charm, and a fleur de lis. I wirewrapped baby pink rondelle beads for the necklace and hung it on a Vintage pink buckle. It's really lovely, and I feel pretty honored to have been asked to be a part of this special gift.

Then, a few weeks ago, I was asked to mark a special birthday for a darling little girl who turned SIX yesterday. Hence the #26. Mom asked me to create something that she could wear that would celebrate her little girl's birthday and would forever be a rememberance of this special day. I couldn't resist sending "D" a little bauble to match her Mommy's necklace. I loved that I used multi-colored beads on the necklace - it was a nice departure from doing one color. I loved it so much that I think that I might just have to make something for myself with these colors.

This is why I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE what I do!

Can you tell :)


  1. I saw that necklace, I think, at Haley's cottage and I meant to tell you how AWESOME it is! You do such a fantastic job personalizing things! And that's why they're so wonderful! Because you DO love it so much! You put your heart into it.

  2. Oh my goodness, Patricia!!! You are talented beyond words, my friend!!! :-) Now I know you can accept my "challenge" and it will be perfect, I just know. You have a creative gift that shows through in your beautiful work. I will call you next week to talk about my thoughts. I can't wait to hear your voice in person!!! Much love and thanks for all of your (and John's) prayers...Lori

  3. Such special pieces!!! We both love them so much, Patricia!
