I recently stumbled across The Pretty Peacock website, while looking for unique handmade items to include in Mother's Day gift guide.  As soon as I laid eyes on the Inspiral Sculpture Pendant ~ A Mother's Love Knows No End shown below, I fell in love, not only with the unique spiral design, but also the meaning behind the inscribed words.

Inspiral Sculpture Pendant ~ A Mother's Love Knows No End

What a gorgeous way to show how much you care...

The text on this pendant reads: "a mother's love knows no end".

~ Each spiral is handmade in our Seattle studio.
~ A gorgeous,floral motif adorns the inside of the spiral. This pattern is actual a part of the silver - not just etched on.
~ The text is hand stamped - NOT engraved, so it will not rub away.
~ We use a hefty supply of eco-friendly sterling silver for each spiral (no wimpy metals here!)
~ Each pendant measures 2 1/2" tip-to-tip/
~ 18" recycled sterling silver chain included.

As I have shared on numerous occasions, I battled stage 2 cancer in 2008, and was told by doctors that I would never be able to have children due to the high dose chemo and radiation treatments I would be undergoing.  I could try and freeze my eggs, which would have cost ten of thousands of dozen for the process, storage and later implantation -- but, this was not an option because we were going to be faced with unexpected medical bills for treatment and medicine that my health insurance wouldn't cover.  And, we had no idea the outcome and what the short and long-term side effects would be.  So, I had to put my dream of becoming a Mom on hold, to fight the battle at hand.  Now, almost five years later -- they will deem me cancer-free and in remission the end of May (can't wait!) -- I am the mother to two beautiful and healthy girls.  There are still days I have to pinch myself to let me know that I am alive and that this is real, as it just seems too good to be true.  One minute you find your world turn upside down and fighting to survive, and the next you are cradling one of God's most precious gifts in your arms.  My life can't get any better than this!

When it comes to jewelry, I have always been a fan of sterling silver pieces, as they pair well with both casual and dressy attire.  For me, the more unique the better, as it is always a great conversation starter, and a way for me to show off handmade pieces from talented artisans that friends, family and strangers would otherwise not know about.

So, when I stumbled across The Pretty Peacock and read about this business came about, I knew I had to include at least one piece from their collection in my Mother's Day guide, and spread the word to my readers about this and other handmade pieces, that would make for great Mother's Day gifts, and treasured keepsakes for years to come.

"The Pretty Peacock first emerged into existence as a way to feed a creative soul. It has since evolved into a passion to design pieces that show off our love for our little ones, celebrate a union, commemorate an achievement, remember a special moment, or an important place - the most essential aspects of life that make it our own.

We are not interested in creating a bauble that just matches the current outfit.  We create tangible memories - treasured keepsakes meant to last a lifetime.

Rest assured in knowing that each piece of jewelry you order from us is created by our own hands, here in the United States with great care, pride and lots of good juju!  You will definitely be able to feel the difference. "

Here is a sampling of other necklaces and pendants that would put a smile any Mom's face (including your own, hint, hint) this Mother's Day:

Aren't they all just beautiful?  Once you see these necklaces and pendants up close, you will fall in love with them, like I did once I received the Inspiral Sculpture Pendant ~ A Mother's Love Knows No End in the mail to review.  

I can't tell you how many people have stopped to compliment me on the necklace, or ask what is inscribed on it.  And, once I tell and show them the inscription, I can't help but feel a sense of love, hope and strength, knowing that my dream of becoming a Mom has come true, and that I get to spend each and every day watching my daughters grow, while showering them with unconditional love.  

The inscription is true -- "A Mother's Love Knows No End."  And, thanks to the folks at The Pretty Peacock to handmade this and all other pieces in their collections, have made my Mother's Day that much more special this year, with their beautiful pendant. :-)
