Create Jewelry That Says "Home"

Baby, it's cold outside. With the gray days about to set in, it's nice to look forward to time spent in front of the fireplace, curled up with a good book. Days like these make me want to spend more time at home than the summer months typically encourage.

What is your vision of "home"? Each of us has a different view, I imagine. And I think it would be satisfying to create a personal statement of what that view is. Being a jewelry designer would dictate that my statement comes in the form of a necklace or perhaps a charm bracelet. With the popularity of Pandora and other personalized charm bracelets that reflect an individual's interests and various life events, why not create a piece of jewelry that reflects one's sense of "home"?

I've started collecting a handful of interesting pendants, charms, and other components that would make a fun statement. As I searched the internet, I discovered that a symbol of "home" doesn't necessarily need to be a literal house-any activity or hobby enjoyed in one's residence could work just as well.
