kristin baby necklace

My friend, Kristin was pregnant - let me preface this exciting news by saying from all the girls I still communicate and see from highschool, she is the first!  Needless to say, we were all very excited to throw her a fantastic baby shower.  Since I started making jewelry, I had been dying to try my hand at making some sort of baby inspired necklace, bracelet or earrings.  I really didn't want it to be cheesy or cartoony. 
I was playing with a paperclip at work and realized how simple the design was.  I started thinking about safety pins and after many many trials, here's what I came up with.  I think it looks pretty good.  She had a boy so I added white pearls to it, because I thought it needed something extra and was much to plain by itself.

Janelle,
your designs are beautiful! They are elegant, dainty, modern, artistic, and intelligent - just like you! Already have a few of your beautiful earrings and necklaces and simply LOVE THEM! Will need to special order one - just so I can have one named after me! I like that idea very much. :-) Aloha a hui hou, Carla
