This particular family necklace was specifically designed for the Boomer Mom or Sandwich Generation Mother. It embodies the immeasurable love that a mother has selflessly tendered to her children and husband, over the years. It is not merely just a necklace, but a token of gratitute for the selfless acts of putting her children's desires and dreams before her own; for countless meals she has cooked; for her constant encouragement; and endless moral (and financial) support. It is an endearing memento for someone who has sculpted your thoughts and actions into the person you are.
The hammered pendant bail and hammered, thick, heart focal are attached to a sterling silver cable chain. It is embellished with large clasps for an easier opening and closure. The children's name charms are interspersed with freshwater pearls. I drill each pearl to provide you with a solid, sturdy necklace. The surface of the focal heart is also given a hammered finish, to match the pendant bail. Lastly, a darkened patina is then applied, buffed, and polished for a vintage look. All metal is solid sterling silver 925.
Please indicate the special name to be imprinted on the focal heart charm. In the necklaces pictured, one has the initials of a husband and wife (P & G) and the other shows the husband's name on the center heart. Up to 7 letters can be accommodated on the heart pendant. Standard length is 16 inches, for average height and weight women. The necklace pictured is 18 inches, which is recommended for taller women. For plus size or larger women, a 22 -24 inch chain is recommended.
As much as my husband and children think that I am perfect (lol), I am far from it. Part of the charm of hand-crafted jewelry is the slight imperfections. As such, the letters will not be perfectly aligned nor identical. There will be some variance in spacing and appearance. Due to the personalized nature of this custom piece, please allow 2-3 weeks for fabrication, plus shipping time.
