A girl and her American Girl doll

I worked on an interesting custom order last week and through the weekend. It started out as a pendant for a doll, an American Girl specifically. After we went through a few mock-ups, the order expanded to include a matching pendant for the doll's owner. Overall, the order turned into a pretty cute little project.

Whenever a project makes me smile, I often reflect on how I found my way into the world of handmade recycled jewellery. I was originally inspired by my work as a young adult author, connecting to contemporary teens. Although this type of hobby (writing or crafting) is probably silly to many, I still find it rewarding to share my creativity in a way that makes other girls smile too.
