Mother's Day Jewelry

{custom Loretta Fontaine Jewelry sterling silver Meredith necklace with miniature original photographs of Blue Forget-me-nots and custom grey freshwater pearls}
I dropped off new jewelry to one of my all-time favorite places, DEPARTURE Museum Shop at the Albany International Airport in New York.

The wonderful shop manager, Bonnie Alexander, had asked for pieces to display for Mother's Day. Here's one of the necklaces I made for her - but with a twist. I had a strand of beautiful gray freshwater pearls on my bench and they were begging to be added to the necklace! (Normally this piece gets the white pearl treatment!)

The flowers in this necklace were photographed in my garden. I think Forget-me-nots are perfect for mothers, don't you?

How are you celebrating Mother's Day?



  1. Beautiiful Loretta and I love gray pearls. I hope you have a wonderful and Happy Mother's Day!


  2. Beautiful necklace, Loretta. I hope you'll bring pieces like this to the Beekman Street Art Fair!

  3. Cecilia- Of course you'll see me at the Beekman Street Fair! Next month!

    Can't wait to see you, too!


  4. What a gorgeous combination Loretta! I love the flowers and the beads together. Happy Mums Day to you too!

  5. Loretta - What a gorgeous necklace! So pretty! I love it. Happy Mother's Day to you! Mac

  6. Hello Loretta
