You may have remembered me sharing about some pretty handcrafted pendants in my March favourite things list and I’m excited to say my very own custom pendant from Auburn just came in the mail! Now I don’t own much delicate jewelry, but I’ve already worn this pendant a handful of times this week. I feel like the gorgeous mint green colour goes with everything for spring!
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!
