I love the scrabble tile necklaces out there, and planned to make a few for the fun of it. But then , while going through my stuff, I found some pretty cool number tiles !! I decided to make my own twist on  Mothers jewelry !!

I am using a number tile for how many kids there are for that mom, or grandma, and then I went through my pretty large bead hoard and found 8 mm beads, all the same size and shape to use for the birthstones and matched them up as well as I could , so I can hang the number of kids beads birth stone tile, to match the number of kids on the tile !!

What fun,  and something a bit different than the usual mother jewerly !! I used myself in the picture. Four kids, and used a blue for  Sapphire for September , red bead for  garnet for January,  light pink for June, but I can also do a pearl as June has more than one birthstone and then a goldish tone for Novemeber, Topaz. They are not perfect matches but are inspired by the birthstones and a lot of fun !!

I used a really gorgeous antique brass chain and I am making them 28 inches long unless requested otherwise. I am including the first four birthstones in the price and only a dollar more per extra bead up to nine. After nine, we have either make a number on a blank scrabble tile or the customer can choose to use thier last initial instead, and can do that for any order at no extra charge !!

Her e is what I did today to make the first piece , I had a lot of fun and I am very excited about these necklaces !!!

I gathered all my materials AFTER going through all my boxes of beads and picking out a shape and size of bead and then finding 12 matching ones for each birth stone !!

here I show the pearl loose, I used the light pink for June, but Pearl can be used as well. June is my own birthstone as well and I have always had a hard time getting a stone, it is usually a pearl, or a pink stone as Alexandrite is a rare , unusual , and expensive stone and not really an option !!

You can see the red letter in the back, for anyone that bothers I can always color the black over it, but being in the back, it really should not be a problem for most people !!
