Being a mom is the hardest, best job I could ever hope to have. It was made even more difficult when my own mother died, because my children were still young - and I knew I hadn't asked all my questions, or gotten all the advice I was going to need. Fortunately, I won the mother-in-law jackpot. She and I both knew she could never replace my mom, and she never tried. But she has been there for me in so many ways and filled a huge void in my life. She is, in every sense of the word, a gem.
I have several pairs of mixed metal earrings that I like to wear with this pendant, but my current faves are this silver pair from Yvonne Raley, at Cecile Raley Designs.
Her jewelry caught my eye a while ago, and I had purchased a couple of things from her already before she had an earring sale last summer.

As I've said before, I don't look for pieces that necessarily match - but I am always pleased when I find a new item that works well with something that I already have, and enjoy wearing.
This heart really does "go with everything" so any day I'm feeling the need for a little extra love, I put it on before heading out to face the world.
Until next time.
