Today’s Blogiversary special is very dear to my heart. I spent months searching the world for an artist/jeweler to make my logo into a pendant. When I found Susan of Kadin James Designs, my search was over. Susan has a collection of Jewelry For Motherhood that complemented the pendant that I wanted to make so well. And as you can see, her work is phenomenal! There isn’t anyone else who could compare to what she was able to do for me. So I contacted her and worked with her through sketches and proposals and finally a sample pendant. It took my breath away! Susan utilizes an ancient technique of carving the pendant out of wax and then using the wax to make a mold from which the final pendants are made. When she sent me a photo of the Wax mold that she made, I knew I was going to love my pendant. But seeing the mold was only the preview to how beautiful her pendants actually are when held in your hand! She truly has a gift.
When I told Susan about my Blogiversary Celebration, she happily joined in! One lucky Mommy News and Views reader will have a chance to win a Circle of Love Pendant from Kadin James Designs. This pendant was designed with the same love and painstaking care that our custom pendant was created with. It shows a mother and child in an embrace. You will love this pendant! It comes with a black leather cord and would make the perfect gift for any new mother or mother-to-be!
