On my first Mother’s Day, Anderson gave me a beautiful silhouette necklace with Baby Kingston’s picture on it. It was THE perfect gift for a new mom. I think I might have even cried a little. (Could have just been the hormones!) Fast forward a few years, and I decided I really wanted an updated necklace. Baby Kingston’s profile was adorable, but Toddler Kingston’s profile is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. That little nose! So I went searching for the girl who made the first one, and she is absolutely no where to be found. Dropped right off the face of the internet! Bummer.
But I got a crazy idea. I could make my own! Then (because I always go to extremes) I decided to open my own etsy store and sell them. I mean, why not!? So I bought all the supplies, watched a few YouTube videos, and went to work. Then I spent about a month trying to perfect them. If I was going to sell these necklaces they had to be perfect! That’s when I realized that the amount of time I was spending on them meant I’d have to charge an arm and a leg – plus a kidney – to make the effort worth it. So I scratched the whole thing, and admitted that jewelry making is not for me. Oh well. It was worth a try!
So… all that to say, since I have all the supplies I thought I’d make a necklace and do a giveaway for Mother’s Day! Enter below and win one for the most important mom in your life, or for yourself. 🙂 Here’s what you’ll get: A custom silhouette pendant of your special someone, so you can keep your child, husband or anyone you choose with you all the time! The pendant is 1 inch and features a classic vintage-style black silhouette on a white background. You can choose a 24″ or 36″ length chain in antique bronze plate finish. If you have two kids I can do two charms, and you can choose the chain length for each, or just stack them both on one chain. If you have more than two kids, you’ll just have to pick your two favorite. Ha! Just kidding! Enter through April 28th.
Let me know if you have any questions! And happy early Mother’s Day!!
