parting gifts in memory of my mom

mommy09About a year after my mom’s passing, my sister and I invited several of my mother’s dearest friends to a small luncheon in her honor. I was not able to travel back to DC for it, as it turned out. But my sister Megan flew back for this lovely luncheon.

I wanted to make each of her friends a keepsake that would remind them of Jane. So, I used some of her sparkly costume buttons and earrings and made these pendants as parting gifts. I have a picture of the ladies wearing their that day…(somewhere) and will post it when I find it. I so wished I could have been there to give them their gift in honor of Jane…and hear their remebrances and stories about her.
