Picture Inspiration {21/52}

This week's prompt was to shoot "from the heart". I coupled that with this week's Mother Load photography prompt which was "self portrait" and took this.

The necklace was a gift from Jay for my 50th birthday.  It is from the "Open Heart" collection at Kay Jewelers. So the significance of shooting "from the heart" is knowing that this necklace was truly a gift from the heart... something he knew I would like, without really even knowing why (after all, he doesn't really consider me a jewelry kind of girl).  The fact that it is a butterfly has personal meaning to me, so that makes this a "self portrait" that is more than skin deep!

Gorgeous and just perfect for the prompt. I hope you wear this frequently! I have a tendency to keep my good jewelry (just a few pieces) for special occasions which don't pop up very often.

Such a beautiful necklace! I love the idea of using an item with significance as a "more than skin deep portrait."
