Mom is near to my heart...

update: Lynn was kind enough to send me a picture of the pendent she made for me. It is called the memento mini... its like a picture in a little bubble. Thanks so much Lynn!

Because I recently won an absolutely beautiful pendant from Lynn Krestel and have it on a 24" chain. Lynn placed a pearl on my pendant instead of the crystal. Lynn has an etsy shop where you can view more of her beautiful sterling silver creations. I am a member of the American Craft Guide Community and they were having a Valentine's Day give-a-way. And that is where and how I won this wonderful pendent.

I knew that I would not be able to get a picture of my own pendant and do it justice so I captured one of Lynn's from her etsy shop to show you. The picture below is of my Mother and that is what is inside of my pendent. I don't know how Lynn gets them in there, but it looks so kwel to have the picture floating in the center. It's like magic!

I see that she is offering classes to teach her method of creating these pendants. If interested you might want top check it out. And if you stop by Lynn's blog, let her know that I sent you her way. Thanks!

My Mother is so beautiful in this picture and it is my favorite of her. I miss her so much. She passed away on her 77th birthday in September 2008. She looks like a movie star to me. And she was and always will be my star!


  1. Your mom was a knockout! That is a gorgeous photograph. How wonderful to have such a sweet memento to wear.

  2. Thanks DM .... she was my best friend and I miss her terribly, but feel closer with wearing this beautiful pendant.
