When a friend of mine was about to die, she had no idea she would be in hospital for nearly a year and a half.
That’s when she decided to make a necklace to help her.
The diamond heart is made of diamond that is polished to a mirror finish and coated in a clear resin that is meant to make it harder to break.
Her friends and family didn’t even know she was dying and didn’t think she had the strength to make her own.
It took years of research, careful planning and dedication to make the necklace that finally saved her life.
After nearly a decade of research and making the necklace, she was able to return to her life after her death.
She says it was her own decision to get the diamond.
“I didn’t know I was dying, and I wasn’t thinking about it, so I didn’t want to make people think I was weak or a weak person,” she said.
My friend said the necklace was so simple she couldn’t believe she made it.
I’ve made my life much better by wearing it every day.
“It’s such a simple thing,” she says.
“It’s just one of those things that when you look at it, it just makes you feel better.”‘
I just knew I was losing’My friend, who has bipolar disorder, had a severe reaction to the painkillers she was taking.
She had a panic attack every day and was on medication for it.
When she went to hospital, she didn’t realise the damage she had done to her body.
With a bracelet on her wrist, she could tell her friend was still in a lot of pain.
She didn’t have any idea how badly she was in pain.
On a whim, she decided it was a good idea to make something to make sure her friend had a better chance at recovery.
When she was about 12 years old, she said, she made a necklace.
That is when she met her husband and she fell in love with jewelry.
“He was such a supportive dad, and we loved making jewelry together, so he was really excited about it,” she recalls.
“So I made it for him and it became my hobby.
He loves it and he said it’s beautiful, so we have been doing it for a long time.”
And I think it is wonderful because it makes it so much easier for him to understand.
“When the painkiller wore off, she stopped taking it.
It’s now been a year since she stopped using it.”
It was a big decision for me,” she admits.
But she still loves making the jewelry, she says, and it’s a hobby she loves.”
When I’m in pain, I think about it a lot.
I just know I’m losing, so it makes me feel better,” she explains.
And if you have a diamond heart and you’re thinking of getting one, you might want to take a moment to think about how you got it.
