Family Cluster Necklace

Happy Mother's Day! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. For us, the sun was shining and the birds were out... a true spring day. It was gorgeous and so great to spend the day with my Mom.
Both my mother and my mother-in-law are amazing mothers and I wanted to give them a present that would recognize that they are wonderful mothers. This necklace is a family necklace with the initials of their children.

First I went to Michael's to search of the perfect pieces for my Mother's Day necklaces. I needed to find a flat piece that I could stamp letters on. This proved to be much more difficult that I had imagined! Eventually, I found this, and my little 1/16" letters fit nicely on it. Look here for the magnets I made with these small letters.

I then added a pearl and a blue stone to make a little cluster.

This fit so nicely and an silver chain.

I love how the necklace turned out. It is modern and simple, yet has so much meaning. I loved making it so much that I made some earrings out of the left over material.

I am sure that I will be making more jewelry!

Happy Crafting,
