Angel's Wing Necklace

This is one of my favorite necklaces to make.  There are variations, for sure.  It includes a circle LOVE pendant and freshwater pearl, and usually the names of children or a spouse and wedding or birth date.  It's a great "family necklace."  This one was ordered by my lovely friend, Dianna, who is a strong and beautiful, faith-filled grandmother.  It is extra special because it is for a young mom who recently had to say goodbye to her 7 week-old baby girl.  Brilee's parents knew there were complications during the pregnancy and were told that their little angel was not likely to survive birth.  If she was born alive, they only expected to have a couple of hours with her.  Through lots of faith, prayer, and miracles . . . Brilee lived for 7 weeks!  This necklace is kinetic as the charms mix around with movement and gravity.  Sometimes you can see Brilee's name, and sometimes it is covered up by the wing.  To me, it says she is always with us even though we can't see her.
