The littlest carrot stick is quite thrilled and delighted by this, his find. He gloated several times saying "Dad said you wouldn't wear this!" and his dad, in turn, egged it on, saying (in my presence) "Won't Mom look great wearing your necklace at church?"
I'm pushing the idea that such a fine looking necklace might best be displayed in the most special way possible, on the Christmas tree.
I wish I had taken the picture with a quarter next to it, so you could really appreciate its grandeur.
Let's just say, that if it were a piece of armor, you wouldn't have to add much and you would have a complete armored breastplate.
