Tiny gold circles

I'm so thrilled to be able to offer some of my most popular necklaces in gold now!  They are gold filled.  If you aren't familiar with gold filled, here are some facts about it:
  • Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal.
  • Gold filled is not gold plated as gold filled contains more gold than gold plated.
  • Gold filled is brass or copper, covered by sheets of gold in a mechanical bonding process.
  • Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant than gold plated.
  • Gold filled does not flake off, rub off or turn colors.
  • Anyone who can wear gold, can wear gold filled without worry of allergic reaction.
  • Gold filled will last as long as 14K gold.

  • This particular necklace is hung on a 1.2 mm ball chain.  The letters on this one are not blackened in unless you specifically want that done. (Just add it to the notes in checkout).

    Pieces of Me Necklace $55.00

    A friend and great photographer inspired me to make this necklace. The whole time I made it I thought of how each charm is so different and unique just like my kids!  My kids can drive me nuts sometimes but I they are all little "pieces of me" and I'd never be complete without them.

    There is so much detail in this necklace.  Each charm is hand soldered, cleaned to remove the fire-scale, then polished, stamped and oxdized.  It is a long process but your necklace will truly be one of a kind.  If you have particular shapes you'd like to go with your names, leave it in the notes.  Otherwise I will choose the shape that fits the name best.

    Price includes your choice of 1 soldered charm on a 16" or 18" sterling ball chain.

    I love circles for what they represent to me...eternity.

Then I finish it off with a pearl or crystal. Price includes one child's name disk. You can add another little circle for $8.00 more. All-sterling and hung on a bead chain.
    **Please note:  The circles used for this necklace will work with names up to 8 letters in uppercase block font or 5 letters in the lowercase typewriter font (because it is slightly bigger).  To upgrade to a larger circle there is a charge of $2.00 per circle.

    Believe Necklace $60.00

    I designed this necklace with my 8 year old daughter, Gracie, in mind. Gracie was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disease with a current life expectancy of 37. "Believe" has been my mantra for the past 8 years. Believe in miracles. Believe in hope. Believe in eternal love. I "Believe" that a cure will be found in Gracie's lifetime and that children everywhere will be freed from the chains of Cystic Fibrosis.
    What do you "Believe?"
    The profit from every "Believe" necklace sold will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help us find a cure.
