Welcome again to the Featured Etsy Seller of the Month series. This month our featured seller is jewelry designer, FindingCharm. We asked FindingCharm which piece of jewelry that she made was her favorite. Her answer brought furball tears to our throats and almost made us cry. Here is the amazing piece of jewelry and the beautiful story behind it.
In her own words, FindingCharm’s favorite piece of jewelry:
Antique Gold Chain Necklace with Groovy Pendant
“It was one of the first pieces I made. I had no idea what I was going to do with the pendant when I got it, but I just liked it for some reason. I started putting things together. Not my typical beaded style and was going to be more on the higher end of my price ranges. It was a great sense of accomplishment. To me it was my first “trendy” piece. It was also featured on Timothy Adams’ top 10 list, which was a weekly ordeal; literally, following directions and just hoping out of the hundreds of people who submitted their craft, mine would stand out. And, it finally did! I actually cried. I was new at it all and getting noticed was just a high. I was in the top three to be exact.
When it sold, I loved the story that went with it. A woman bought it for herself as a Valentine’s Day gift from her husband who was serving in the military overseas. He saw through Facebook how much she liked it and told her to get it. A couple of weeks later, he came home on leave and she said she wore it to the airport to get him.”
