I've Ordered Hand Stamped Necklaces... Runner Necklaces!

I've ordered two necklaces from the Etsy store Gracie and Me Design.  I'm so excited!

One is a mommy necklace for my daughter's best friend's mom.  She's done so many nice things for my daughter that I wanted to give her a nice present.  I choose a family necklace with spacer beads.  It's so pretty on the site so I can't wait to see mine in person.

The other is a runner's necklace for a work friend who needs some cheering up.  She completed her first half marathon in 2010 so I've ordered a necklace to commemorate that amazing feat. I hadn't seen necklaces like this before and I think they are a great way to show someone how proud you are of them.

The artist, Barbara, has been a joy to work with.  She responded quickly when I contacted her and is such a sweetie!  I also think her prices are quite reasonable.  I've seen so many places that have beautiful jewelry but it's far too expensive for me to afford.

I've included some pics from her site but I'll be sure to share the final results with you as well.


  1. Thanks for the great gift idea. Hope to see you back blogging soon!

  2. Hi,

  3. What a great idea! I never thought about using it for a race or event. Hope you all have a great weekend! My Handy Hubby is working on some flooring for the closet...I smell a blogging opportunity :)
