As soon as I saw the I Love You to the Moon and Back necklace I knew that was the one for me! I said that to my boys as they were growing up and I now say it to my grandchildren right before we go to sleep when they are with me on the weekends. All of your jewelry is beautiful.

Thanks so much!

"Ilove you to the moon and back" is great. But then the "well loved grandma" would make a stinking cute gift.

Tara @ Feels like home said...

I love your work, Kristen. I featured one of your pieces in my Etsy Elite column on Blissfully Domestic long ago. I think it's just terrific.

If I won your gift certificate, I think I would do a custom piece with a pearl (that's my daughter's birth stone), my daughter's name (Grace), and the words Lucky Momma, though I'm not sure how I'd want to put it all together. You have so many awesome designs to chose from!
