Beautiful Gem

In Attire

My object is a necklace; my grandmother gave it to my mom than my mom gave it to me when I was six years’ old. It represents me because every girl in my family has it. I have five siblings and out of all of them my mom choose me.  I am just so happy that my mom trusted me with this necklace that has been in our family for over 25 years. This necklace represents me and my family because it reminds me of my grandmother.
