My Latest Find

A week or so ago while browsing through the Etsy site I decided to see what popped up if I searched "adoption jewelry". I fell in love with this pendant and immediately knew I HAD TO HAVE IT! It's a beautiful glass tile about the size of a stamp.I e-mailed back and forth with the artist, Gail. She was so nice and very easy to work with. She offered to put my LID on the back of the charm. Isn't that the coolest thing? I love love love it! It turned out even better than I expected.I love the pendant so much I wanted to share her site with everybody. It's called Dos Besitos's and is located here on Etsy. She has all kinds of glass tile pendants and magnets representing many different countries including Russia, Guatemala, Ethiopia, Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan, Haiti and the Philipines. The pendants aren't just for waiting moms either. There are some with little maps like this one below.Or with words written in different languages like this one that says "mother" in Amharic.These are just a few examples of the beautiful work she has on her site. Go check it out.
