Delicious Apple


I made this necklace for a woman who is expecting twins! The rubies are the babies birthstones. I am working on expanding my collection of necklaces featuring my own artwork. This is one of them, even though it's a super simple design.

I never really intended on creating so many pieces using birthstones, but I guess it was a natural progression for me since I have a little one too. I get a little nauseous looking at typical birthstone jewelry. It's so......boring.....old fashion.....and just plain old looking. Now that I'm a mom and I don't consider myself old exactly, I am much more interested in finding some great everyday looks that incorporate birthstones in them. It's nice to be reminded of the ones we love and stay true to ourselves at the same time.

That is really beautiful. My sister is having twins in July and that would be a lovely gift.

P.S. The Apple twins arrived on 7/9/08. Jane weighed 6 lbs, 6oz and Eleanor weighed 6 lbs. Babies and mommy are doing great.
