A bracelet to remember



About two weeks ago, a friend had told us that she had just lost her baby---she was about 13 weeks along. She was shocked as she had no clue anything was wrong. She contacted me and asked me if I could make a little bracelet with footprints on it as a little remembrance of the pregnancy. I was delighted to do this for her and so happy that she had thought of me to make this special bracelet for her. Her only request was that it had crystals and pearls on it. Since she was only 13 weeks, they couldn't tell if that baby was a boy or girl yet, so I chose clear crystals. And, I absolutely love freshwater coin pearls. I put a butterfly toggle on it and I just love the footprint charm I found on Ebay. I'm going to show it to her today---I hope she likes it. Have a great day today!!

The bracelet is just beautiful. Perfect choice on the pearls and clear crystals. I'm sure she will smile every time she puts it on and sees the butterflies and footprint.
