We love it when monograms go monoglam, but we also love it when initial necklaces show some character. If you’re looking for an awesomely affordable Mother’s Day gift, or just a sweet little soemthing to go with your summer sundresss,  these pendants pop with timeless, old-fashioned charm.

We love hand-embroidered necklaces and this, more rustic offering, will look perfect with the pastels of spring and summer. The pretty pendants from Sassy Sister Vintage on Etsy are customizable and deliciously different from the shiny metals prevalent in stores. Plus I love the artist’s speedy delivery time. Contact her stat and you might even be able to nab one in time for Mother’s Da.

Just pick from five fabric colors, provide the letters you’d like, and your necklace will be hand-embroidered, sandwiched between vintage watch crystals and ticking fabric, and soldered together with lead-free solder. An antiqued copper chain with a lobster clasp completes the look. All that, and they’re on sale right now too.

Initial pendant!



I just love this springy, rustic, Laura Ingalls Wilder sort of vibe. I can’t help thinking these are not your mama’s monograms; but they might be your great grandma’s. –Delilah
