I adore my future Mother-In-Law. My own mother passed away 6 years ago. This is the first Mother’s Day gift I’ve made in a long time.
I’m still a novice at jewelry, so if you have any suggestions…
She’s not a bling type, so that is why I didn’t put any crystals, etc. Inside the locket are two pictures of my Fiance: one now and one as a baby. The “thank you” charm is 1″ , the locket is 1/2″. I want her to love it, but not just because I made it (you know how mothers are).

Wow, I love it and am totally jealous that I don’t know how to make one for my Future Mother-In-Law. The only suggestion I have is what about adding a picture of both you and your FI?

@liliwo2016: Thank you for the suggestion. I was rethinking the baby/grown up pick. I may have to search for a pic of the both of us that can be made small enough. Though I do feel a little weird putting a pic of me in there. Maybe just leave one side of the locket empty?
