I named this necklace after my mom.  This is one of the first pieces that I've ever made and I wear it often.  My mom is one of a kind.  She's always wanting the best for others.  She's a giver.  She has an open mind and has overcome extreme challenges with grace and ease.  Not to mention her smile is contagious.

The chain is gold-filled or sterling silver, the length approximately 16 inches with 2 inch extenders. There are 5 stones, approximately 1 cm long. The stone color options: black agate/onyx, amazonite (light blue), red agate, bright blue, moonstone, orange, pink jade & purple jade.
