I found an old pearl necklace that my dad gave me when I was a little girl and thought that repurposing it for my first granddaughter would be an awesome thing. The pearls are yellowed with that lovely vintage-y (that's got to be a word) look. I bought some pale baby pink Swarovski crystals and a little oval bead with a K on it. I added a tiny crystal-studded star charm to the clasp. It is precious if I must say so myself and I can't wait to see it on her tiny wrist.
I also found a sweet poem that I will print out and tuck in the box for her...
"Once upon a time a baby girl was born.
This pearl and crystal bracelet upon her wrist was worn.
The years went by and the young girl grew.
Something old, something new,
Something borrowed, something blue.
A lucky penny for her shoe...
These treasures she'll recall with prideWhen this sweet baby becomes a bride."
