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.

Components:

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