I heard from the daughter today and here's what she wrote:
"The pendants were absolutely perfect!
As you can imagine, this Christmas was difficult without my grandmother. On Christmas Eve, my mom and aunt brought some of my grandmother's old photos to share with their cousins before dessert. After everyone was done looking at and talking about the pictures, my mom told them that she had a special gift that she wanted to give to them early. Everyone was really amazed by the pendants and by how they were made! And the cousin who my mom thought was least likely to wear the pendant was the most moved by it! She and everyone else put them on immediately!
It was such a pleasure to be able to make something that meant so much to this family for a holiday that was bound to be difficult for them. As much as I enjoy designing the pieces that I put on my website, custom orders that have special meaning to people like these is what I truly love to do.
