Color Inspiration - Birthday Girl
by Debbie Blair
Our family just celebrated my daughter's twelfth birthday. T-w-e-l-v-e. I still have a hard time saying it out loud. It really does seem that she graduated preschool just yesterday. The toddler and grade-school years flew by, and held their own unique set of celebrations and challenges. I'm positive the pre-teen and teen years will offer up all new opportunities and challenges that we haven't even thought of yet. And I'm praying the next twelve years don't pass by as quickly as the first twelve. I am nowhere near ready to be an empty nester.
What I love about this birthday celebration photo is that it captures the exact moment before the candles are extinguished. It makes me wonder what the birthday girl is wishing for as she blows out the candles. I wanted to create a cheerful necklace that captures some of the fun that celebrations like this bring.

For this colorful necklace, I combined a handful of glass beads into wire-wrapped links, then added a hand-stamped pendant, a hammered silver ring, and double-link silver chain. The result? A beaded tribute to my daughter, who brings me so much joy!

Cheers!
Debbie
