My Special Necklace
My Special Necklace

My object is a necklace. The necklace is from my mom. I think the necklace looks great. My mom gave it to me when I was nine years old. It was also my birthday when she gave it to me. My mom used to wear the same necklace. I always said the necklace looked really pretty. So my mom bought the same one so we can both wear it.
I chose the necklace because my mom gave me the necklace on my birthday and the necklace is special to me and because she knew I always wanted the necklace. My mom came from Ecuador and it was hard for her. She bought the necklace for me when she came back to New York. This necklace helps me feel connected to my mom because my mom gave it to me when I was younger and I wear it all the time. I also now wear it everyday even when I go somewhere no matter the occasion.When I'm older and I have a daughter I want to do the same thing my mom did for me. It would be nice if I could get an elephant necklace for my daughter so we could start a new family tradition. I'm grateful she bought me this gift. I wear it every day and it brings me a lot of joy.
