In 2010, with my b-i-g little word "wholehearted" it didn't occur to me to purchase another piece of jewelry. Now I'm glad it didn't!
With the current fashion trend of cluster necklaces, I decided to go for it and add charms for my 2010 and 2011 words. My challenge was in finding charms that would maintain the look and feel of the original piece - and one that would actually fit the entire word "wholehearted" on it!
After a bit of internet browsing, I found exactly what I was looking for at Heart on Your Wrist. This was one of the few sites that allowed ordering charms without the necklace where the option was right in the ordering info - no emailing for a special request! And now that my necklace is complete with my "happy" word of 2011, I really love the look and feel of the whole piece!
Thinking into the future, assuming I continue participating in One Little Word, adding a charm each year may become too much for a necklace. But it would make a stunning little charm bracelet just packed with personal meaning! To which I could add some sea glass beads, maybe some turquoise... oh my mind is just whirling with the possibilities! But for right now, my One Little Word necklace makes me very HAPPY.
