One of my most recent blogging friends is Sherry from Everything Moms. She also runs an online store at Sher's Wares, where she sells gorgeous jewelry that she makes herself - mostly bracelets and necklaces for babies and young girls. A little while back, she was kind enough to send me a crystal and pearl bracelet for each of my girls.
Abby and Hannah were thrilled to each receive a bracelet and they loved the fact that their pearl bracelets were also made with their own birthstones - diamond for Abby and citrine for Hannah. I love that the bracelets are adjustable, with the clasp able to fasten anywhere along the little chain at the end, so they won't grow out of them for a long time to come. And we can put them on just tight enough that they won't accidentally fall off.
Becca loves having a bracelet as well - like the 'big' girls do. Hers was made with her birthstone too - garnet. The dark red happened to also look wonderful with her Christmas dress. :)
This is what the girls' bracelets each look like - don't you just love the little gauze pouches they came in?
Here are a few pictures of Becca that we took the day that our bracelets arrived:
Becca wasn't quite sure what to think at first, not having worn any kind of jewelry before, but she grew quite attached to her bracelet and didn't want me to take it off of her that night.
Abby was happy to model her bracelet for me as well, but although Hannah has worn hers several times, she hasn't let me take a picture of her with it on.
These would make wonderful gifts for babies or young girls in your life, or for weddings, christenings or other special events. I know we'll treasure ours. :)
