My Turtle Necklace

 Something special to me is a turtle necklace that my grandma gave me when I was younger. It is a silver necklace with a turtle charm on it. My grandma and I have a good bond and a strong connection, so it means a lot to me that the necklace is from her. Jewelry plays a big part in my life; it is something that I always use and never leave the house without. I used to wear it often but then I started to get nervous that I would lose it. When my grandma leaves, I know that I will have a part of her with me. My grandma is my everything to me, she is my whole world, and I am so grateful for this gift from her. One thing that I like about getting jewelry is that it is something I can keep forever and wear whenever I want.
