For a long time, I've avoided delicate jewelry and have been drawn towards chunky statement jewelry instead. Not because I didn't like more delicate jewelry, but I never thought it would look good on me because of all my birthmarks. Now, I'm not usually self conscious about my skin, but for a brief moment while editing these photos, the thought of photoshoping my birthmarks out crossed my mind. As soon as it did though, my mind flashed back to a few weeks ago when a little girl told me she was being teased because of a scar she had on her face. I remember telling her that it's our differences that make us special and unique and even features that aren't your favourite are a part of what makes you uniquely beautiful.
When I opened the box my necklace came in, I saw a little card tucked into the package. On this card, it said that each pendant is handcrafted, and because of that, no two charms are exactly the same. I loved this so much and I know that it's as true for people as it is for jewelry!
So with that, take a moment today to celebrate your imperfections! They only make you more gorgeous!
