happy birthday kelly!

kelly saw the bracelet and decided she wanted a necklace version. this all worked out perfectly since i had no idea what to get her for her birthday. i gave it to her at her birthday party last night at malo and she loved it. one of a kind, just like kelly... happy birthday kelly! (vintage gold plated leaves attached to enameld turquoise chain with sterling silver rings)
