Where are the roots of our lives? On our family tree. What is family? Gandhi said, "Where there is love, there is life."
Captured here on a solid sterling disc is that wonderful quote - hidden behind an exquisite family tree pendant. Peeking out from under the tree, we can enscribe the names of your family (up to 4 names, average 8 characters each). Please note the space available may affect the fonts able to be used on your piece. Indicate your preferences below, and we'll contact you before forging it if there are adjustments to be made.
If you'd prefer your own phrase to the Gandhi phrase, please indicate up to 4 lines below, of up to 10 characters average each. The phrase will be in the Tiny Elegant Caps as indicated, but you may choose the font for the names around the edge =)
Goes with everything sterling...suspended from a 16" sterling rolo chain with 2" extender and lobster clasp. If you need a custom size, just let us know when you check out.
Check out font choices here by cutting and pasting this link. Please note, not all choices are available on every piece. If you have specific concerns, just contact me.
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 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.

♥ We are happy to include matching gift cards at no extra charge if requested.
♥ Most retail items ship within about 3-4 WEEKS from order date. Every single piece is sawn, hammered, pierced, filed, oxidized, buffed, and finished by hand - right here. We take great pride in our work, and even though our processes might be a bit slower, they are time-honored with classic proven quality. If you want the best hand-hewn look, you have come to the right place.

Most retail items ship within about 2ish WEEKS from order date. Remember, while you are sooo important to us, we are a family of 7 and "stuff" happens. IF YOU NEED AN ITEM SOONER than the listed forging time, contact me - often I can get a single order out sooner if requested.
Exceptions: During busy holidays, it can take longer. If you are needing it for a specific occasion or date, check with me and make sure you'll receive it in time, or purchase express postage.
Sometimes, items ship SOONER, because they are ready-stock. If this is the case, the listing will state that.
Any any case - if you need something by a certain time - please contact me and double check. If I know, I can help. If I don't know... it is subject to fate.
