BLUE Monday - Mother's Family Bracelet


Happy Blue Monday
I'm having a Giveaway. Please see my Sidebar....and now..
Sally from SmilingSally is hosting Blue Monday for us again. Its time to post about some BLUEness in your life. Be sure to click on her name to visit all the other BLUE participants.

I made a Mother's Bracelet for my mother for Christmas. One strand has my name and the other my brother Ken's name. I've added BLUE Swarovski crystals on his strand because they represent a boy/son on the bracelet and mine are in pink.
On each side of Ken's strand is a Swarovski crystal bead representing the birthstone of each of his 2 sons. My strand has a crystal and emerald green crystal on either side representing Geoff and Richard's birthstones. A ruby coloured crystal beside Geoff's name is for his daughter, my precious granddaughter Madeline. My mom loved her bracelet and she loves to explain the crystals to her friends.

I've placed its picture in my Pinkdaisies Ety shop as a sample. I think it would be a lovely Mother's Day gift for a mom or a sister..... Its a lovely conversation keepsake.
I hope you have a lovely BLUE Monday....Judi xoxo

How pretty. You are so talented. Do you do any decorating for Valentine's day? I hope your weather is good. We are improving. I just don't like it when there is ice, snow and below freezing temperatures for more than a day. I hope you have a wonderful week.

Oh Judi Sweetie...
I love these bracelets, what an awesome job you did on them. No wonder your Moma is so proud and shares the explanation with so many people. You gave her the gift of love that she will wear with her no matter where she goes. So beautiful. I just thank you so much for sharing with me today.

Love it...Have a beautiful Blue Monday sweetie. Country hugs, Sherry

Judi, thanks for noticing my new header name. Our house is really known as Caraway House because the Caraways originally built it. It is a bungalow and our last name is Birdsong so I thought the new name was most appropriate. Thanks for noticing.
