Under the Tuscan Sun

My lovely friend Christine Altmiller created me a beautiful necklace.  I am completely in awe of Christine's talent this detail and intricacy that it took to create this piece left me flabbergasted.  Christine has been such a dear friend to me we have shared many things and one of the best parts is we celebrate our birthdays on the same day.  Christine is such a down to earth, honest, warm, kind, compassionate, eclectic music lover, and fabulous jewelry designer.  I feel so honored to have become her friend as well as own a beautiful piece of jewelry that she created with her own hands.

Christine didn't name the piece that she sent me, so I hope she doesn't mind that I gave it a name myself because this necklace really does conjure up wonderful images of Tuscany for me.  My ultimate dream vacation would be to travel to Italy, so little did Christine know she helped bring those lovely images to my mind.

I hope everyone is having a lovely day! 

Much love,


  1. Penny, I had no idea about your dream vacation! But those beads knew because they certainly had a mind and color scheme of their own!!! I just love the name and the image this conjures up :-) Thank you so much for your kindness and friendship. My days are always brighter when I hear from you :-)

  2. No arguments here - Christine's work is simply awesome! This is beautiful - I love how the tangerine color flows from one focal to the next! What a beautiful design she has here! And, you have aptly named this beauty, too!


Thank you for stopping by I love to read what others think so please leave me a message. Have a great day!
