Spotlight Sunday- Be Jewelry

Spotlight Sunday. You can find my other spotlights here.

Today I want to share with you Be Jewelry.

Let me tell you how I found her. I was searching online for Down Syndrome Awareness (that's another post for later) when i was looking at the images I came across this.

Then I clicked on the image, I just loved what it said. (What a good brother, huh?)
"this pendant was designed by Micah. his little sister has Down syndrome, aka trisomy 21, and this represents three chromosomes on the 21st set, a total of 47 instead of the usual 46. Micah's creativity is AMAZING. :)"
So I looked around her site a little more and saw this bracelet and fell in love with it.

so much so, that I emailed Betsy to ask her if she could make me one with dandelions instead of shamrocks.
After emailing back and forth she had a design in mind and it was going to be a pendant instead of a bracelet cause funny thing is???? I don't wear bracelets or even a watch, lol. I just loved her bracelet :)
The front of my bracelet has 3 dandelions on the it. It's for me, Kaitlen and Abigail. I was going to do something for the boys later. Then Mommy guilt hit me and I definitely didn't want 5 dandelions on the front that would be to much so on the back she put a heart and then the first letter of each of the kids names T.C.K.M.A. The back turned out so great I could really wear the necklace either way. oh, the fly-a-ways on the dandelions, 5 of them are holes that go all the way through,1 for each kid. She came up with that. I knew some were going to go all the way through, but she came up with the 5, one for each kiddo. Yes, she's a mom. mom. to. 4. boys. one of which is a Matthew.... i tell you, it's the name, and it's no coincidence when a child is named Matthew :)

Another item of hers that i really liked was this necklace.

I don't know if you notice, but i do. Her work is very different than what you see floating around the blogosphere. Very unique, very hands on. oh, my pendant is VERY sturdy/hardy. Nothing is going to happen to that. EVER. SERIOUSLY.
Since it's close to Mother's Day I told Ben it was my Mother's Day gift :)
