My grandmother always wore a large butterfly locket containing pictures of her favorite little people so she could "keep us close to her heart." I like the idea of honoring my kids, but wearing a giant silver insect–or most any locket for that matter–just isn’t my thing. Fortunately, my custom name charm necklace crafted by prolific jewelry designer/mom Suzanne Myers is exactly my thing. Suzanne’s necklaces feature hand cut sterling charms with a modern but organic sensibility, each personalized with your child’s name. Draped on your choice of chains, it makes more of a style statement than my grandmother’s locket ever did.
The necklaces also include your choice of exotic stones, ranging from the luminous moonstone to flaming red coral to earthy chunks of turquoise. Suzanne will work with you to create a piece that’s both meaningful and memorable – she recently completed one for an adoptive mother who selected a jade stone to represent her daughter’s Chinese heritage.
I love that my necklace not only looks fantastic, but that it’s destined to become an heirloom–the very necklace that my children and grandchildren talk about. Only this time, in only a good way. –Nancy
