For the love of Children

About this design:

When my brother in law retired from his long time management job. He, along with 3 other people founded an organization called "The Dove House". It is a Childrens Advocacy Group. Located in Statesville, NC. They have a website if you'd like to check it out. The organization helps sexually abused children. And also aid in procecuting the abuser. They do way more than I could go into here. Anyway - my brother in law passed away 3 years ago from cancer. I made this necklace in his memory. They have a fund raiser every year called and Evening for Dove House - which I volunteer to help with - and I will wear this in April for this year's event.

    Your brother-in-law is smiling at you now. This is a beautiful necklace, made even more so by the love and sentiments that go with it. Good luck with the benefit. Oh, did you make the pendant too? What is the website?

    Thank you all for your kind comments. No I did not make the pendant – bought it at a LBS.

    The Dove House website is:
    for those of you who would like to check out what they do. You can click on the link to the left called “About Us” and “Statistics” to see how effective they have been since they started in 2001.
