Grandma’s Green Beads

by Catherine.

Like Rena, I love green colors. I collect anything green.

I inherited my Grandma’s beaded necklaces and broaches.

I especially loved one necklace, it’s one of my favorite shades of green.

I took it apart and made a bracelet (middle) from each bead for my Sister and I a few months ago.

It’s something I will always treasure.

Usually when I find or buy green beads, crystals, or anything green, I’m selfish and end up keeping for myself.

  1. I love all the wonderful green-ness in your photo, Catherine! 🙂 And it’s so lovely that you designed a way for both you and your sister to have a piece jewelry from your Grandma’s necklace. It’s like she’s always with you when you’re wearing it.

    I did the same thing with a necklace from my grandmother. The necklace was broken when she gave it to me, she wanted me to make earrings out of it for her, myself and my three sisters. Beautiful glass marbles (for lack of a better description)-black, red, blue, clear-ish with flecks of gold in them. There were enough for the five of us and a couple of cousins. I cherish and wear them often.

  3. What a beautiful way to share your Grandmothers beads and to keep her memory alive. Beautiful!

    It is a nice way to keep them in the family. She died 15 years ago and I ended up with all of her beaded necklaces. The other necklaces were so pretty too, but the beads were glued to the string so a little difficult to take apart. This one was on an old string . My Mom said she’d worn that necklace as far back as she could remember. It gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling to have them.
