I knew that I had to take a picture of one of my necklaces for my something shiny photo. Something about necklaces is so charming. They are a simple piece of jewelry but can make a statement to a outfit. My favorite piece of jewelry is the necklace. One that I wear everyday is a cross one. However, this shiny necklace has a special place in my heart. This necklace was one my grandpa made for my grandma.
Yes, my grandpa made his own jewelry. He has made brooches, rings, and pendants. I remember having this necklace before my grandma passed away. I still miss her so much. It feels unreal that she's not on the Earth still. It will probably feel that way forever too. Another sad thing that happened is that my grandpa is currently at an assistant living because of his dyslexia. Its crazy how I never get to see them anymore. The only things I have left is their house and the jewelry they left behind.
I'm not sure what type of rock or jewel my grandpa used in this necklace, but to me its very gorgeous. It reminds of the beauty of light and darkness. To me this necklace resembles my grandparents, how they were such sweet people, and the sad things that happened made people sad, almost like going into the darkness. However, it still sparkles and shines, knowing that they are still in the hearts of many people.
