Imperfect Moment Necklaces
Imperfect Moment Necklaces // As shown on @littlesycamore stories
As we finish working on Moment Necklaces, I set aside the ones that seem to be "imperfect" for one reason or another. The Moment Necklaces in our shop never go on sale, and because of the high cost to make them I do not plan to ever have them be on sale. I am only selling the ones shown here at a discount in order to clear them out because of their imperfections.
*Because this is an Instagram flash sale item, sales are final. No order cancellations or return/exchanges. But you get to see each piece before ordering, so you can know exactly what you are getting and what to expect, so I assume there will be no need for returns anyway ☺️*
MEANING BEHIND THE MOMENT DESIGN:
The little circle on this design reminds me of a clock, or time; and the stone represents a moment, a moment in time. We have these designs with every month’s stone, so you can use them to represent any moments that are special to you. Certain dates hold so much meaning, and I think this will be a beautiful reminder of those moments.
I know for me, I think of my grandpa whenever it is the anniversary of his passing. I remember all of us cousins spending so much time at my grandparent's house soaking up his funny sweet loving spirit in those days before he passed away. And I think one of these in that month's stone would be a beautiful reminder of those moments with him. The days that my two boys were born were the best two days of my life, and I love to be reminded of the moments that I met them by wearing the stones of the months they were born in. Whenever I want to work on loving my husband more, I think about the day I married him. That day is so special to me and I would love to wear one of these to remind me of the moment I chose to spend forever with him. Time is always moving forward, things are always changing; but my vision for these little Moment Necklaces is for it to be a way to capture the special moments and remind you of those moments.
I also hope they can be a special gift for you to give. It can be hard to know what to do for a momma who just lost another baby to miscarriage, but hopefully giving her an Angel Baby Moments Necklace will be a way for you to say you love her. And a way for her to have a physical representation of the memories and moments she has with that baby that she holds close to her heart. A gift you give on graduation day, with that month’s stone, to always remind that young woman of everything she accomplished. A necklace representing the month your friend lost a loved one, or their "heaven birthday" because you know that this time of year will always be tender for them. Gifting yourself the stone of the month you were born in, because you know that YOU matter and every time you wear it you’ll be reminded to practice some self love.
The necklaces can be worn at different lengths too, so you can layer them beautifully! The circle is smaller than the size of a dime (it's roughy the size of your fingernail) and attached to a 14 inch chain with a 3 inch extender, but it can be clasped to be worn as short as you’d like or up to 17 inches. The high quality chain has soldered links to prevent breaking, can be worn daily and while showering. Everything is lead & nickel free.
The process: Many crystals are sorted through to find the prettiest ones. These crystals are then carefully positioned with the prettiest angle facing forward, and carefully positioned inside of a little hammered circle. The mounting is shaped with a clay, and the piece is then hand painted with conductive paint. The necklace then goes through a really neat process where pure silver deposits onto that conductive paint crystals for 15+ hours, taking the pieces out to make adjustments every few hours. After tumbling, hand polishing, and either leaving as is in silver or plating in the thickest possible layer of nickel-free 18k gold or rose gold, the pendants are finally complete! The pendants are then attached to the prettiest, softest, highest quality chain I have found. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into this little beauty!
