Lately, I have been feeling like creating something for me and my daughter to have that signifies our bond to each other. I didn’t know what I wanted it to be, but I knew I wanted it to be something simple and special for the both of us; something we would have with us everyday, and somehow feel a sense of connectedness to one another. Although she is still pretty young, she is well aware of when we are not together. I wanted it to represent our love for each other as mother and daughter, and be something like a tradition that we can carry with each other for the rest of our lives.
I decided to create a bracelet for us. A very simple bracelet that we would wear everyday, no matter what. I also didn’t want it to be bought, but wanted to make it myself. It makes it more special in my opinion when something is handmade :).
I put a little charm on both of ours; hers says “love” and mine says “faith”. I always want to her to live with love in her heart. I will always have faith that God will always keep our bond unbreakable and that throughout life, no matter what happens, our love will never waver.
It didn’t take long for me to make it, and I am really happy with how it turned out. I want to make another one for us, but don’t want to load her up on too much jewelry so soon. So far, she likes the one I made and I am happy!! 🙂
