Kay Etheredge and Caroline

(Kay and her granddaughter Caroline)

“I was in second grade when I overheard a conversation between two girls in my class.  They were talking about their Add A Pearl necklaces that their grandmothers had gotten them. Even at that young age I thought it was such a beautiful idea but didn't think my parents or grandparents could afford it.  I never mentioned it to anyone.

In 2016 I was blessed with the birth of my first grandchild, a granddaughter.  As her first birthday approached this year, I wanted to get something meaningful for her and I remembered the Add A Pearl necklaces that my friends had many years ago.  I got online and was thrilled to see that all these years later I could still purchase one!  

I am so excited to build her necklace and even at one year old, she just wore it as a flower girl in a wedding.  I hope I get to see her wear it at her own wedding years from now.  

When I gave Caroline her necklace at her first birthday party I was telling my story to other relatives at the party.  My daughter in law's niece, just out of college, said to her grandmother who was in the room, "Buy me one, Mimi!"  So the add a pearl idea is timeless and loved by all ages.”

Thank you again,
