I just received the monogram necklace I ordered a few weeks ago & I'm pretty sure it will never leave my neck; I love it! I never had a middle name growing up, and it wasn't until I got married, that I (after much debate) changed my last name and adopted my maiden name as a middle name. What I love most is that my initials spell out the word "SEW". The convention when it comes to these types of monograms is to have your last name be the center (and largest) initial; I decided to break with convention and have my necklace read "SEW" (instead of "SWE" - just not as fun!).
