Lately I have been SO into hearts. Sterling hearts, pink gold hearts, tiny yellow gold hearts. I think it has to do with the fact that my baby is already a year and a half old. Not a baby anymore but a toddler. I love my kids so much and my husband and I realize how lucky I am that they are in my life.
A few years ago I lost 2 babies at the end of my first trimester. And it put me into such a depresson. I carved this necklace as a way to heal from the miscarriages and I now smile whenever I wear it.
So now that I have 2 kids, and having gone through so much to have them I am thankful. Just plain thankful. And full of love for them. So I went to work at my bench carving some hearts. The first one started out like this just really simple and modern and soft:
It's also available with a customized hand stamped message like this one:
But then I wanted something smaller so I started carving again, here are some of the pictures of the process:
It's hard to keep it even, and can you see how tiny it is? It kept flying out of my fingers as I carved it, but I finally finished it up and made this sweet 10k pink gold bracelet with it:
But then I wanted something in the middle. I had one large and one small. I needed a medium. I know, I know, I'm never satisfied!!! But it was all worth it because I made this personalized hand stamped necklace for all the moms out there. I'll list it in my shop soon, I promise!
Until the next time, remember to love one another!
