Close to my Heart

About this design:

I had been wanting a mother's necklace for some time but didnt wanna pay $80.00 for one so I decided to make my own! Each initial tag represents each of my precious children! I embossed the heart with the mod trees die to represent the branches of our family tree. The heart and the three red crystals represent my love for them.


vintaj heart blank, mod trees embossing folder, chain and clasp from vintaj, red crystal, brass jumprings
