I ordered 3 different sets--by that I mean they're double-sided, so I emailed her 6 different images for 3 different pendants (4 of each set). I was so happy with these when I got them--
They're really much better in person. This photo just doesn't do them justice! She offers these pendants to anyone--she has ones with her ladies or you can personalize them with your own art or personal photos or even tiny snippets of personal items that have sentimental meaning to you. You can go to her Etsy shop and get all the details.
Now I know nothing about jewelry making--nothing! But my daughter Jen (the marathon runner) does. In her spare time she likes making jewelry for herself. She's very good at it, but never has much time--she has a very demanding job, but she did say that she would help me. So this weekend was my first lesson--the very basics--and I mean 1st grade basic--just to get me started. She didn't have much time as she was getting ready to go out of town this week for her work. So on Monday I made my first necklace--it took me all night long! As a matter of fact when my husband came home from work at 11:15 at night (I'm usually in bed by 9:30 or 10), I was still working away at it, and I told him that I didn't care how long it took, I was going to finish that damn necklace. It was after midnight when I finished. The next day I felt like I was partying all night---just can't bounce back like I use to!
So you're probably thinking I've made these intricate amazing necklaces--well, not quite, but I think they can pass as jewelry.
Don't let his looks fool you--he's my grandson! He came over with Jen for a visit. I don't get to see him that often, so this was a treat. See that worried look on his face? Whenever he comes over, I think he thinks that's he's not going back home. He loves us, but after a few hours, he wants to leave.
And one more thing--I'm glad that these necklaces are keeping me up at night. I need that right now, because I'm afraid to go to bed before my husband gets home. I went to see Paranormal Activity 2 yesterday, and I knew, like the first movie, that it was going to scare me, which it did. However, it wasn't quite as scary, and it ties into the first movie--so now there's more of a storyline and explanation of why this paranormal activity is happening to these people. But they both still scared the heck out of me!
