Living in the center of Bavaria, which is the most catholic Germany state, I cannot but notice the buzz surrounding preparations for first communion. It starts about six months before the actual date with weekly classes at the church. Suits for the boys and dresses for the girls are being chosen, tried and finally bought.
I find girls especially sweet: dressed in the traditional "Christ's bride" style, they look like angels - half grown-up, but not much yet.
My new range of children's jewelry was inspired by first communion. I already listed some white chalcedony items in my DaWanda shop, and absolutely love its milky color. However, the necklaces and bracelets could also be used for little bridesmaids, and also worn without any particular occasion.
