Sweet Anniversary....

“Our wedding was many years ago. The celebration continues to this day.” ~Gene Perret

I recently had the honor of creating a necklace for a customer, as a gift to her grandmother for her 60th anniversary.

As I thought about this milestone in her life, I was a bit nervous to be the one creating this special keepsake. Would it honor the love and devotion of a 60 year relationship?

So I researched anniversaries, and found the gift and meaning for 60 years. The tradition of celebrating a 60th anniversary came into popularity after Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee. The gemstone is a diamond and the color is diamond white.

Here is the piece I made. I used vintage crystals to represent diamonds and antique milk glass beads for some white. I added a small gold heart along with the crystal hanging from a sweet little bird charm.

Happy 6oth to S’s grandmother, may you celebrate many more!
