.Happy 6th *gasp* birthday, sweet David! You are such a blessing and a joy. When you were born, everything I expected suddenly changed. We were worried and scared but also enchanted with you. You were so small and cuddly. The future seemed so uncertain. But as the first days passed we grew into a small family.

Over the past six years you have been teaching me joy. To find joy where I am and to soak up the little things. You have taught me that life doesn’t usually go the way we plan but the unexpected can be a blessing.

This necklace was created in honor of your birthday.

$10 from the sale of each necklace will go directly to the CdLS foundation. A sterling disc (1 1/4″) is hammered, domed and stamped with the phrase ‘find joy in the unexpected’. Strung on 18″ leather cord with a sterling clasp and bronze coin freshwater pearl detail. An organic, earthy necklace. Perfect with jeans and a tee! $46
