    Default Pearls for Bride and Mother

    My daughter got married last weekend and just look at what we are both wearing - metallic freshwaters. Don't we just glow?! All these happen to be from PP. I bought my stunning necklace at last year's Ruckus. The torsade was a PP special late last year. The torsade is actually mine too, but became the "borrowed" part of my daughter's wedding ensemble. She has her own freshwater necklace too and you can see it subtly wound through the torsade. I have to say I am just as happy with my look as I am with my beautiful daughter's!

    My metallic strand is 8-8.5 mm and 16" long.

    Thanks for all the nice comments. My daughter was a beautiful bride and I'm so proud of all her accomplishments. I'm sensitive to how older women are ignored or forgotten in our society, as if youth were the only prize that matters. Being a mother-of-the-bride is a platform to offer another image of the value of mature women, albeit a traditional one. I like to think I took a stand for those of us with extra decades of love and life. The pearls help!

    BTW, I had a 23-year old puppy dog following me around all night, the younger brother of one of the bridesmaids. I don't think couger fantasies are any better than being ignored as an older woman, but they are more fun.
