show and tell vol. 4

Friday, December 5, 2008


this is a necklace robb got me for mothers day, the picture is totally blurry (i couldn't get close enough to read the words without it getting fuzzy) but the heart part says Brenham Jay 2-29-08 and the circle part says Missing You around it. it also has an itty bitty blue bead at the top. Love it and wear it almost 24/7! its recently started to show some wear and tear, so i've cut back a little on wearing it all the time. if anyone has any good jewelry cleaners they recommend let me know!

Sorry, me again.... also, to take close ups of writing without the blurr, if your camera has the "text" open with macro, it really picks up the text and nothing else so much. Or, take the pic from a little further away, and then zoom and crop it in your camera before posting it. I've used both of these options.

That is really beautiful. I hope that you are feeling well. Thanks for your inspiration.

Wrights Silver Polish is what I use on all of my jewelry (Sounds like I have tons and I don't). It is a soft pink paste, rub it on and all over real good, rinse it off with warm water and soft towel dry. It doesn't scratch but brings the luster right back up like new. I hope this helps. I wear my jewelry 24/7 because I am afraid of losing it. This necklace is so special. Wear it always. You look wonderfully healthy in the last picture and I am so happy for you.

I have a very similar necklace that my husband bought me after we lost our first. I use toothpaste, the white gritty kind to clean mine and keep it shiny. I have also taken it to a jewelery store and they clean it for me for free.
I wear mine all the time and love when people ask me about it. I am so proud to tell them about our little angel.

Just mix some baking soda with a little bit of water to make a thick paste, then rub it around on the metal parts. Rinse well with warm water and dry.

I use this method all the time on my sterling silver pieces from Tiffany's. It won't scratch and it even works on the chain.

You don't know me, we are strangers but I want you to know how much you inspire me. You are such a strong and courageous person and I want you to know that you will forever be in my heart and in my prayers. I am a new mom and I cannot even imagine the pain you and your family have been through. I will pray that you will be blessed with a beautiful little person to hold, love and watch grow what a lucky little person that will be. Happy Holidays and God Bless!

take a small bowl (smaller than a dinner bowl- maybe an ice cream bowl? :) ) and fill it up half way with ammonia, then add some lukewarm water to it. Keep your head away from the ammonia though! Its strong! Let it soak in there for as long at you want. I sometimes do it over night, sometimes for an hour. I do this with my wedding/ engagement rings and it works great. Once you are ready to take it out, I use a soft bristle toothbrush and scrub it to get in the grooves. Rinse it with warm water and pat it with a towel to dry. That sounded long and complicated- but its easy! And the necklace is beautiful. Very special.
