Trinket #66 - Self Portrait Necklace

Self portrait is the theme of the week, and as that is a pretty sticky theme to try and translate into jewelry, I did the best I could. This necklace is based on a single strand and has multiple strands that branch off of it - symbolic to me of the many interests and paths my life has taken.

It is asymmetrical, but balanced - symbolic of the "mom" side of me and the "self" side. The pearls represent the parts of me that started off rough and undeveloped that have matured into valuable talents and skills.

The beads? Well, I just like them.

Today's trinket is modeled by my lovely daughter.
