My Taonga is my special, pure gold necklace. It has a golden heart at the front. Then beside the heart is tiny, golden dangly stuff! The rest of it is shining gold. It is used to make me special and make me look nice and I have had it since I was 8 months old. This necklace was bought in a city in Sri Lanka. This city was called Colombo. This is where I’m from! My family has had this necklace for a long time! My mother's mother (Ammamma) bought it for my mum. This necklace is special. To my mum as well! My mum gave it to me when I was really young, so young that I had it when I was 8 months old!!! But my mum had it first and then it became mine!
It is special to me and my mum because my grandma died when my mum was 7 so now it reminds me of my mum's mum and all my other grandparents.
This piece of jewellery connects my family together because when my mum, dad and brother are crying, I bring it to my mum and dad.
That's why it’s special to me and my family!!!
