I've been experimenting with silver art clay recently - how amazing is that stuff?  I love the idea of having inspirational words on jewllery and this wording is really significant to me.

The wording has become a bit of a fertility symbol for me recently.  We're now into month 7 of trying to conceive after a second miscarriage back in Aprial and some days it's hard not to get a bit despondent (although I'm not obsessing like I used to about it all)

Anyway, when I was much younger I used to love the band James (actually I still love them) and they did a song called Gold Mother.  I'm a big believer in how our thoughts contribute to our reality - we get what we focus on.  So I decided after my last miscarriage that I was going to avoid negative thinking around it and focus on positive thoughts of getting pregnant and having a healthy baby. So I would often put Gold Mother in my ipod and dance like a maniac around the bedroom!  And the necklace is a daily reminder for me to remain positive and think good thoughts.

I added the gold nugget bead because obviously Gold Mother should have a bit of gold in it!

I've posted a couple more pictures on my blog: http://jo2308.typepad.com/blissedoutknitting/2008/11/sparkly-bag.html

Thanks for looking!

I haven't attempted to use that stuff yet but your necklace is great and very inspiring.

PS~ I don't know what your beliefs are but I prayed for you to not having any more miscarriages and I prayed for you to bring a wonderful healthy child into this world.

That necklace is really beautiful..I've just discovered silver art clay, I can't wait to order some and have a go!  I was just wondering how many grams roughly it took to make that pendant...I don't want too little and not be able to do anything with it!
Thanks, Claire
