I'm so absolutely amazed at God's faithfulness as he has provided for our family's adoption through A Nest by Design. It was a year ago this month that I wanted to make a birthday present for my sister to include her two children that just came home from Ethiopia. I had the idea to make a nest pendant that could hold eight "eggs" to represent all her children in a way that was simple and unique.
We were just about to finish up our home study, and I knew that I could help our family by blessing other moms with special jewelry.
It grew from there.
I have always been looking for ways to make this jewelry better, prettier, more customizable, and this is the final piece of the puzzle. Starting September 1st, all of the jewelry made will be out of sterling silver wire. Because of the increase in quality and cost (and after much debate and advice-seeking), chains will be sold separately so that I can keep the same price point for those who would rather use their own chain.
I don't have the photography skills to really show how bright and shiny with contrast is between the old materials and the new sterling materials. I'm very, very pleased with this switch!
There you have it! I have needed to post this for a long time, but the beginning of September, with school starting and all, has been quite full. Believe me. It's not for lack of enthusiasm that I haven't posted about this upgrade!
