Show & Tell Friday!

I'm joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for my very first

For my first Show & Tell I thought I would share one of my newer pieces of bling.
Last year I turned 36. We went out to dinner with my parents, my brother and his wife. This bracelet was a gift from my parents. My mom had it made for me at her favorite local jeweler. It was a HUGE surprise and I knew where it came from immediately when I opened the box. The beads are from my hospital bracelet waaaay back in 1973 when I was born. You know...back in the day when they used to have beaded bracelets, not just the plastic ones...oh and no "anti theft alarm". The three beads on either side of the name are actually a bit darker (pink) than they look. The bracelet is sterling silver with a little tag at the clasp that has my first name on one side and 2009 (the year it was given to me) on the other.
Needless to say I ADORE it and wear it often! I've never seen anyone else wearing one similar - if you have one, let me know! I'd love to see your version.
