This Heart's for Mom

The latest design to grace my Mothers Collection is the ‘This Heart’s for Mom’ sterling necklace, an ideal jewel piece to commemorate your love for mom.

This design features a 5/8 inch sterling silver charm, hand stamped with the word “MOM” with my “KISMET” lower case alphabet stamps...and is adorned with an unique sterling silver heart pendant. This beautiful charm hangs elegantly against an 18”sterling silver “made in Italy” double ball chain.

The backside is gently hand stamped with 925(sterling silver).

Surely, you will steal mom's heart with this pendant.

Now available in my shop under the Mothers Collection.

Fit for mom

Need something special for mom for Mother's Day?

The first two designs to grace my Mother's Collection is the "MOM in Style Crystal Necklace" and the "MOM in Style Sterling Necklace". Both designs are now available in my shop.

The ‘MOM in style’ sterling necklaces are the ideal jewel piece to commemorate your love for mom.

This design features a handcrafted “MOM’ in 24g sterling silver wire, measuring approximately 1.5 inches in length.

This pendant is uniquely hand formed by me (each adorned by it’s own beauty and characteristics).

The lovely “MOM” pendant is attached to a handcrafted 18” sterling silver link chain, sporting a .925 tag and finished with a lobster clasp closure. The total length of the necklace, from tip to end is approx. 20 inches in length.

This elegant design is fit for mom!

Back in Business

After a much needed vacation, my shop is now re-opened. Feel free to stop by anytime.

***Mother's Day is May 10, 2009, here's my shipping cut-offs for getting some glittering goods.

***Important Dates:

April 27th is the "recommended" last day I will ship via Canada Post prior to Mother's Day within Canada, April 20th is the recommended date for US & International shipments. Ok, so let's back track a few days to create the orders. April 10th is the "recommended" deadline day for Custom Mother's Day request. Pressed for time, perhaps we can make an arrangement for Express Shipping.

To avoid disappointment, please order early...
It's never too early to think about Mother's Day!

***Please Note:

Unfortunately, due to possible delays at customs, I cannot guarantee on time delivery for any International shipments (US & Overseas).

Shop Talk...Janet Whalen Photography

In the land of Etsy, I came across a lovely photographer named Janet Whalen. Janet is located in Ontario, Canada and loves photographing flowers and especially enjoys finding the smaller "landscapes" within a larger image with her macro lens.

I had the pleasure of "meeting" Janet on Etsy, and she is definitely one first-class photographer.

Please visit Janet Whalen at, you won't be disappointed.
