Phalaenopsis Necklace




Chris and I first came across jeweler Dawn Vertrees at the Redland Orchid Show at the Fruit & Spice Park in Florida back in May 2008. Later that June Chris got me a ghost orchid necklace of hers for our anniversary, which I really love!

Fast forward to the morning of Forest’s birth and he presents me with the necklace above. I’ve been meaning to write about this for awhile and finally remembered to get a few photos the other night. Unfortunately babies and necklaces aren’t exactly a winning combination so I haven’t worn it very much. I could wear it to work but I often forget. A few weeks after we were home from the hospital Chris showed me Dawn’s post about creating the necklace.

My husband is pretty cool! I could totally turn this into a collection. Hehehe!

    That is so beautiful! Good job Chris! 🙂

    I know what you mean about jewelry and babies. JP is remembering what it was like with Kai and his glasses. Logan has pulled them off a time or two already and I have been afraid of wearing my necklace because I don’t want it broken.

    I have been interested in trying this place – she makes specifically with little fingers in mind.

    Not sure I care about wearing jewelry enough to buy something for only the next few years.


    The player is put to the test and only by him depends
    the success of the mission that he has been assigned.
    The secret is choosing games that actually appeal
    to her. This is because earlier in 1980 there were
    no other choices except to go to the Arcades with few options
    to satisfy your craving for games making these games popular
    in comparison to the numbers found in this modern age.
