One way that I got to help with this is she let me design and make her necklace. :) Of course, if I was making one for her, I had to make one for me which meant I had to make one for our mother. (*giggle*)

Since I had 2 skully cameos left over from making the wedding jewelry, I made myself a couple more things. ;)
That's obviously my wedding set in the picture as well. Isn't it dainty and pretty? We got at at Sears for 50% off back in 2003 just before we got married. Woohoo! (*laugh*) It was exactly what I wanted, though, and I love telling those with...um... more refined tastes... where I got it. :)
I got the Skeleton Cameos & Cabachon Settings from a shop on Etsy called Cathy's Jewels. There are so many places to choose from for these supplies that I just went with the first one that seemed like the best deal. I got the beads, skull charms and findings from Fire Mountain Gems. I just used good old E6000 glue to glue the cameos to their settings and those to the ring and unpictured hairclip.
Now I just need to tackle my maid of honor dress!
