– Gold have always been the jewelry I preferred more than silver. In 2008 I realized I wanted to have a little heavier gold chain, a masculine one. I always adored my brothers gold chain with a little Jesus piece attached. My brother got this from my grandmother back in 1995. I always wanted to borrow it from him, but since I knew how much it meant to him, I already knew his answer. One day I asked if I could borrow his chain, since he rarely had it shown. He was always hiding it under his shirt. Surprisingly enough he let me borrow it and since then I’ve kept it on me. Its been 7 years and I don’t go anywhere without the chain around my neck. It is such a big part of me and are extremely special to me, mostly because I’m sure its protecting me.
– The chain is somehow connected to my brother and my grandmother, two very special people in my life. Two people I don’t see enough, thats why this piece is so significant to me.
