A Special Request

My sister-in-law recently asked me to make a custom necklace for her (and a few for her sisters as well). She had seen these necklaces on moms here and there—tiny discs bearing the initials of their children, hanging from a simple chain.

I was glad to recreate what she described. I made them unique by giving the charms a rustic feel. They were blackened just a tad and I (happily!) skipped the polishing. She was thrilled with the finished product, and I just might make a few more as gifts.

...and, has anyone ever attempted a photo shoot with a playful kitten in the house? The shiny dangling chains proved to be too tempting for Pepper. He's lucky he's so adorable.


  1. Those are beautiful, you did a great job.

  2. Beautiful work, adorable kitten. :)

  3. Your handcrafted jewelry is wonderful!
    And a sweet, sweet kitty : )

  4. Pepper! Love him. Oh, and love the necklace too. :-)

  5. My necklace was pawed by Pepper!!? I'm thinking he rubbed me some good luck! ;)
