The Necklace by maggiemae

The Necklace

It seems several friends are looking to see my crown jewels. I took this photo hoping to get away with it. I also cloned one of the beads and put them on my ears!
They are actually nearly 90 years old having been bought by my mother in the 1930’s when she was in Switzerland. So its nice to give them a day of fame.

Three Good Things;
1. I can feel a Yolanda story developing.
2. I can also feel slightly slimmer.
3. I can’t feel sorry for those people who interrupt often and don’t listen.

Really love your crown jewels; it's a beautiful necklace.

They are beautiful maggie....stunning on your lovely tanned skin, do t think they would look as good on my white pale untanned neck, Really shows the colours off, a good age too. So nice to have something of your mums to treasure. I like your today’s 3 GT.

@happypat Its only tanned because the freckles meet, Pat! Shortly after this photo, one of the strings broke. I think it will be easy to attach though with a pair of tweezers!

I love your jewels. And how wonderful that your mother bought them so long ago.

@maggiemae Oh no bad luck...perhaps the strings have perished a bit, hope you can mend them.

@brennieb I'm sure its not valuable, Brennie- just glass but it is pretty!

hope you get a chance to wear them out for real soon. Love your matching earings!

they are beautiful. and great work on the matching earrings! aces!

They are so pretty and dainty - so much nicer than some of today's clumpy showy jewellery ! Clever to clone the beads to create yourself a pair of earrings !

Such a previous possession and they are so pretty and indeed contemporary.

Beautiful shades of blue & lovely designer beads.....a treasure....waiting for your Yolanda story...

@beryl They are not hard to take off, either, Beryl!

What a beautiful necklace

Ahh yes, I was hoping you'd let us see The Necklace. Lovely colours and shapes in the glass.

@golftragic Nice to be able to blur some parts of a photo sometimes!

Very pretty- and such a treasure for having them so long. Well done on the matching earrings! The colors are right up my alley- I love blue tones like this even though I don't have a lot of jewelry in this color. (Most of mine was given to me- and have just as many stories- looking forward to the next Yolanda adventure!)

Love your beautiful necklace. What a treasure to have for a remembrance of your mother. I really, really like necklaces with blue stones, although I rarely wear mine (can't handle the clasps anymore).

@grannysue I'm the same though, Sue - but I do have hubby who is very good at undoing me!

Beautiful blues - and so lovely to have and to wear. Good luck with rethreading them though. My eyes wouldn't let me do that.
July 18th, 2019  
@kiwinanna They seem to have tiny metal ringlets between each piece. You can open them up and clip them back on. Easy peasy - when you have a hubby with steady hands!
July 18th, 2019  
...and with matching earrings. Good for you! I've some of my mother's 'jewels' too. Whilst I don't wear them often, I very much appreciate them being in my gift. Am pleased that Mum willed some personal pieces to her 2 granddaughters. The beat goes on.
July 18th, 2019  
@maggiemae Well that is good - on both counts.
July 18th, 2019  
@s4sayer I do believe you have to wear them constantly - perhaps not if they are really valuable! It makes you feel good and they really go with everything - even a t-shirt!
July 18th, 2019  
@helenhall I'm wearing them at home, Helen - whoever comes to the door, sees them. Also to the supermarket - who cares!
July 18th, 2019  
such a beautiful piece of jewellery. and skilful cloning for the earrings :)
July 18th, 2019  
What a lovely necklace and keepsake.

Beautiful

Wonderful jewels.......................I totally agree with your No. 3!!
I have acquaintances that do this and it is sooooo annoying!
July 18th, 2019  
Lovely. I agree with #3
July 19th, 2019  
I love your jewels.
July 19th, 2019  
How clever to match the earrings. blue is your color. for some reason I don't like to wear necklaces. they bother me on my skin. so I only wear necklaces on top of a blouse or dress.
July 19th, 2019  
what a precious treasure they are ....
