for JessLC

Tom and I took these photos one day early last week before the temperatures rose through the roof, but I had to keep them under wraps until The Franklin Collection officially debuted on the JessLC site. Jessica was kind enough to send a necklace from the collection to each of the Delightful Dozen gals to style and photograph for her lookbook. Each of the necklaces is inscribed with a inspirational message; one side in English, the other side in braille. Mine says "Be Brave". I have to admit that I've honestly never worn a piece of jewelry that so many people came up and asked me about. It was quite the conversation starter!

seems like all of the bloggers I've read up on have that Be Brave Brailie necklace as the choice. It is so interesting to me!
