Unfortunately eventually my grandmother could no longer get around to take care of her flowers. So, the family chipped in to plant them and to do the never-ending weeding so she could still be surrounded by flowers.
When my grandmother died, we sang "In the Garden" and she was surrounded by the most beautiful flowers, flowers she no longer had to weed.
This necklace is in memory of my grandmother. She was a strong woman, even within a weak body, and she loved to be surrounded by the all the beauty of nature.
This necklace brings me a lot of joy. Although Gram has passed on, she is much happier now. Although it brings me a lot of joy in my studio, I hope that it will bring someone else joy as well. It is now for sale in my shop.
