Impressions

Pendant for Baby

Story

When someone is important to you it makes an impression on you. One of the biggest reasons I love to make jewelry is because a piece can symbolize something significant to the wearer. It can represent a significant life event like a birth, wedding, or the love for a life partner. Some jewelry symbolizes ones fundamental spiritual beliefs like a cross, or Star of David, or perhaps an adoration for nature represented through a series like the Elements. Other times there is a being in your life that you want to remember frequently even when they are not with you. That’s what the Impressions Series is all about. Having that special someone with you all the time if only symbolically. The birth of a new baby is an amazing time in the life of a family. This is the kind of piece that is a treasured lifetime gift to a parent, grandparent, adoring aunt or uncle, godparent, or anyone significant to the baby’ life. They are only a baby once, right? Imagine a father wearing this pendant over his heart during the times he must be away from the new gift that has entered his life, or a proud grandparent showing the pendant along with all the cute photos of the precious little one. This piece is customized from the footprints and name of your special baby. Yes, those are Logan’s actual little footprints made at the hospital. Aren’t they precious? Most hospitals make an image of a newborns feet. That’s all we need to make a one of a kind baby gift.

Specifications

The medallions are made of sterling silver sheet that I pierce with the impression of your baby’s footprint and name. They measure one millimeter thick, and about one inch wide and one and an eighth high. Given that size of medallion obviously the footprint is scaled to fit the medallion. Each piece is handmade and can be shipped out within 2 weeks of ordering after I’ve received all the information. The medallion shape is rectangular. The price includes 6 letters, any additional letters in the name would increase the price by $10 per letter. The medallions include 3mm cord of either black nylon, or a 3mm black leather cord. Either cord is threaded through a bail and capped with sterling silver end caps and a lobster clasp. Check the chain length charts and tell me what length you would like. There is a chart for both women and men. I will want to email you regarding the length and type of cord. Do include your email address so that I can contact you with any questions.
