I thought, "This is perfect!"
I thought about each of my friends and the things they had dealt with during their past year and tried to find a word or short phrase that could capture that. Then I added their name to personalize it even more.
After a little encouragement and motivation to sell them I decided to open up an Etsy shop, called the Colony Shop. I'm still really new to the whole selling on Etsy thing, but I'm trying to make my shop a little easier to navigate, but for now you can just place your order and write your description on the comment section so I know what you would like on your necklace(s).
I made 13 necklaces in my first week of business! I absolutely LOVE making these necklaces:)
You can order a necklace for so many different memories and/or occasions!
"Class of 2014" graduation gifts
"Baseball Mom" with the baseball number on it
Valentines day gifts
I made one for the Shelly Moore Band.
Favorite scripture reference
Mother's necklaces with kids names and birthdays
The chains are approximately 32" long and come in silver bronze.
They are $10 and then $3 for shipping.
If your necklace requires a specific charm (like the baseball or anchor charm) it will be $2 extra.
