Product Information

{Product Information}


Each piece of jewelry is personally designed and handcrafted by me using sterling silver, genuine freshwater pearls, semi precious stones and/or Swarovski crystals.

All findings for each piece are sterling silver—this includes all bead chains in 18”, 20” and 24” lengths, headpins, jump rings, beads and charms unless otherwise noted in the individual description of the actual piece.

Charms are handcrafted using one or various combinations of the following:

~Natural white, cultured freshwater pearls--with each pearl varying slightly in color, shape and/or texture. Pearls are often said to symbolize sincerity, truth and loyalty.
~Natural gemstone beads.
~Swarovski, leaded birthstone crystals.

{the process}

A little about the process…each letter on every piece is handstamped one at a time. This makes every piece unique and a little different. The spacing and alignment of the letters varies a bit from piece to piece which is meant to add charm and character and not meant to be seen as a defect. The silver is then hand punched, sometimes textured and then oxidized so the lettering stands out. After this, each piece is polished by hand and the finished product is assembled and packaged.

Each item comes to you individually packaged in a wheat colored, 100% recycled, cotton-filled jewelry box. The box is tied with your choice of natural jute or ribbon. If a preference is not indicated, the box will be tied with natural jute. Included with each package is a small gift tag which is embedded with actual wildflower seeds. The tag is left blank for you to personalize. And, yes, afterwards, it can be planted! Inside the gift box, each pendant is sealed in a small, plastic, zipped-top bag with an anti-tarnish strip. A silver polishing pad is included in the box and can be used to keep your pendant looking like new.

{care and cleaning}


~After being worn, and before storing, wipe the sterling silver with a soft, jewelry cloth to remove body oils.

~Store your necklace in a zipped, plastic bag or wrapped in a tarnish prevention cloth made specifically for jewelry. Doing so will not only protect your piece from being scratched or damaged, but it will also slow the naturally occurring tarnishing process.

~Store in a cool, dry location away from direct sunlight.

~Do not wear your sterling silver pendant while showering, swimming and/or sleeping.

~Try to avoid its direct contact with cosmetics, hairspray and perfume.


Oxidation is a natural process that occurs when sterling silver and other metals are exposed to air and other every day substances. All sterling silver will tarnish with use and wear. Polishing cloths and pads, like the one included with your pendant, are easy to use and will quickly restore the look of your sterling silver piece to its original condition. Polishing pads can be used until they are completely blackened.

{of note}
