The necklace that I got to review was a custom pendant from Our Handmade Gifts. This is the type of jewelry that is going to be a family heirloom. And it's one that I have gotten SO many compliments on when I wear it. Everyone thinks it's just beautiful. The pendant is my picture, put on a polymer clay pendant. It's a lightweight pendant- I forget I'm wearing it sometimes, until someone makes a comment on it. It's a nice size too, big enough that the photograph is visible, but not so big that it is bothersome. These pendants are a little more expensive, due to the amount of work that goes into making them, selling for $49.97. But they're gorgeous and something you will wear for many years.
Since the photo on my necklace is of Vivian and I, I had to let her be in the review picture :)
You can also get other really pretty jewelry at Our Homemade Gifts. Like this pendant for only $5.
Or this cool ring for $32.
