Recycling Memories ~ Memory necklace

Last year whilst tidying together all sorts of bits and pieces, I was struck by the fact that I had so many odd earrings and little trinkets like a button off my daughters first cardigan etc and they were all just cluttering up my jewellery box. I decided to place them all together and added some chains, broken necklaces and other items to create my memory necklace.

Just like the quilts made by victorian women to hold memories connected with different fabrics, my necklace holds a lot of special memories. ,
I have made several of these up for other people using their own memories.
