A new piece....


The Answer (To an Adopted Child)
Not flesh of my flesh
Nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously My own.
Never forget For a single minute:
You didn't grow under my heart
But in it.--
Fleur Conkling Heyliger
The Born in my heart necklace is a sterling silver 3/4 inch disc with the words "Born in my heart" hand stamped the necklace also includes a sweet czech glass flower bead that has been hand wrapped. The charm hangs on a 18 inch sterling silver snake chain. The letters on the discs have been blackened/antiqued to make the letters stand out. The charm will appear to be slightly tarnished/aged but has been given a good polish. The charms hangs on a 18 inch sterling silver sturdy snake chain. Artist Note: The letters on this necklace have been hand stamped one at a time, I do not use machines. The letters will not line up perfectly and this should not be considered a flaw but part of the charm.

Really cute design. I passed it along to an adoptive parent I know.
