My very favorite necklace: a piece that celebrates my son, Michael. One of his sweetest and oft repeated phrases as a toddler was “See the moon?”. I designed a crescent moon pendant with three 8-pointed stars, one to represent each member of our family. This piece is reversible, too! The back of this pendant features a lock of Michael’s baby curls.
After his first haircut, I had tucked a few locks of hair away in an envelope and wanted to place them somewhere I’d see them more often. This ended up being the perfect keepsake to display his baby curls.
I treated myself to a Melanie Bilenker pendant that features a tiny eye made from strands of the artist's hair and set behind a sapphire slab. I love to layer these two gold and hair necklaces.
