~WEARING THE WORLD~

The necklace below, is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry, given to me at Christmas by my parents.  It was custom made by Chart Metalworks, a small company located on the waterfront in Portland, Maine.  
This necklace holds a small map which can be customized to hold locations from anywhere across the globe .A piece which can depict a story, memory or a place  close to your heart. My necklace does just that. It is a map of my childhood home, a place where wonderful memories were made, a place that will forever live in my heart and now around my neck too... 
Home, the spot of earth supremely blest, a dearer sweet spot than all the rest. ~Robert Montgomery~

I think when I visit my friend Mary this summer in OOB, I'll ask her if we can go into Portland and I will order myself one. Such a thoughtful and loving gift from your parents.
