Photo hunter - string(s)

Just in case you think these are very expensive jewels: no they are not! These strings of beads are very precious to me because they were made by my mother-in-law who passed away in March of this year. Though I hardly wear these strings I cherish them very much especially recalling the joy she had in making them for me.On one string she even attached a bead in the shape of a book because she knew about my love of reading.

It doesn't matter what things are made of if they're made with love and/or have special meaning. These happen to be very pretty pieces...

They're quite lovely beads, actually, she must've had an eye for design. Very pretty, it doesn't matter if they're expensive or not.
