Sometimes I envy the way that kids can make friends so easily. You're playing in the same sandbox as me? Well heck, that alone is enough to make us best pals.
When it comes to adults, finding another person that you really click with is much more difficult. Depending on your family, work, interests and what stage of life you're in, it might take a long time to find someone that has a personality that you mesh with and makes you feel comfortable truly being yourself.
However, when you do form a friendship like that, you know you're lucky. So what would be a perfect gift to give to someone to show how much you appreciate and value them? What kind of beautiful, custom token to let them know that every time the two of you laughed or cried meant something?
My answer came in the form of a stunningly beautiful custom hand stamped piece of jewelry from TinyLoveTreasures.
Whether you are shopping for yourself, a family member or a great friend, Trisha at TinyLoveTreasures has the ability to turn your vision into a sterling silver, one-of-a-kind piece of hand stamped jewelry that is sure to be treasured always. From simple, single pendants to multiple detailed, embellished discs and charms, once you find your favorite you'll never want to take it off.
After making the difficult decision as to which would be the perfect piece for such a great friend, I was amazed when I received an email almost immediately telling me it had been shipped. Only a few days later the cutest little box arrived and was sweetly wrapped and ready for gift-giving.
Without a doubt, the Family Tree hand stamped pendant and necklace was just as beautiful, if not more, than it was in its picture. The intricate tree charm was just the right accompaniment to the domed and cupped 1" sterling silver pendant and I loved the way that my friend's last name was hand stamped in a smooth, clean script.
Clearly I thought the end result was beautiful, so I couldn't wait to find out what my friend thought.
The answer? Success! She loved it as well and immediately put it on to admire the simple elegance of the delicate chain and overall look. What better way for a mom to show her pride and joy over her family than with this adorable tree? And with the option to customize it however you wish (individual first names, one last name, a favorite quote or saying, etc) your handmade jewelry will always be a unique and personal treasure.
With a wonderful selection of necklaces, keychains, golf markers, baby spoons and more, TinyLoveTreasures has the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Whether you are celebrating a birth, wedding, holiday, birthday, love for a soldier, amazing teacher, completion of a half-marathon or other any occasion, Trisha can create a custom piece that will be sure to touch your recipient's heart.
Plus, thanks to her generosity, one person will be able to experience the beauty of Trisha's hand stamped work just in time for the holidays, because...
