My oldest son is 16, and he invited his sweetheart to sleep over for Christmas. I love when he does that because it's the only way that his room gets such a thourough cleanup! Jessica sleeps in his room, right across the hall from ours (and I'm a light sleeper, ha!), and he gets the futon in the basement. They've been dating for five months already, and I'm very fond of her. She is a sweet, beautiful, bubbly girl with a dazzling smile. So this is what I made her for Christmas, after I learned that turquoise was her favourite colour.
The necklace is made in argentium, with black onyx beads, and Tibetan turquoise. Some of the black onyx were encased in a knitted pouch made of fine argentium wire.
