Artist Tania Condon has created this absolutely innovative pendant inscribed with an image of your own kid from a photo. (The clearer your picture, the greater the oooooh/ahhhhhh factor.) They’re shiny and bright, but still have a slightly rough-hewn look that makes them really special.
I like the tiny sterling Piccolo coin (shown) which is the best value at $69, including a name and birth date on the back if you’d like. Tania can also do a bracelet, cuff links, or hook Grandma up with the bling-a-licious 22k gold coin if she happens to have been a very, very good grandma this year.
If you’ve got two kids, I’m thinking two coins on a single chain. Just make sure to rotate them – the last thing you need is kids fighting over whose engraved likeness you love best. –Liz
