A Special Necklace For Our Bestie

As we head full steam into 2010, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on one of our most special projects of 2009. One of our very oldest and best friends asked us to make her a necklace to wear on her wedding day.

The end result was beyond our expectations! She was a breathtaking bride and it was a perfect day. Daniel M was so excited to be a part of it!
