FREE! First Class Shipping on ALL Orders!"And so the lion fell in love with the lamb...,"
I looked away, hiding my eyes as I thrilled to the word.
"What a stupid lamb," I sighed.
"What a sick, masochistic lion."
~ From "Twilight", by Stephenie Meyer
This versatile, gorgeous oversized circle can fit many letters for an entire phrase of your choice! The number of letters & spaces possible depend on the font and symbols chosen, but here are some guidelines:
~ Classic All Caps ~ About 60 Characters
~ Exclusive Script (upper & lower) ~ About 45 Characters
~ Concise Upper/Lower (this one looks like Times New Roman) ~ About 42 Characters
~ Poetry Lower (very scripted, lower case only) - About 53 Characters

Any name or word can be custom stamped onto the sterling circle (please indicate in the comments upon checkout). The circle is thick enough to be smooth and stable, but light enough to be barely noticeable when worn. It's about 1.25" across. A smooth sterling chain has been doubled around the piece for a unique, sophisticated look.
Necklace length is 16" with a 2" extender, but if you need a custom length (up to 22"), it should be indicated at checkout - no additional charge.
Our necklaces are hand-hewn in our studio from milled silver chain. We never use jump rings in our basic construction - every necklace or bracelet has a hand-looped secure closure with accent sterling beads...it won't just fall apart. Our hand-sawn, pierced, filed, stamped, and/or oxidized pieces have been forged with proven, classic techniques that may take a little more time, but show the heirloom quality of our work.
♥ This item is hand-stamped, and the letters will not be perfectly straight - it's part of the charm of this artisan item :) Additionally, stamping is a much deeper impression, and also blackened, to be much more visible than engraving. We have other hand-stamped items available in our store, if you would like to see more examples.

I cannot find words to express my delight, my inspiration that I felt after receiving my new necklace today! It's a genuine piece of art. The quality is outstanding. Unique, amazing, perfect necklace with engraving that means a lot to me. It took almost 4 weeks to get it after ordering but I do not have any complaints. I'm just happy with my purchase. Thank you Bonnie, I appreciate it.
