The intent of this necklace is very simple. I wanted a design to honor special dates without being traditional. The result is small and clean; something that can be worn everyday. Numbers displayed are significant to the wearer while being curious to the casual observer.
This piece could memorialize adoptions, births, graduations, anniversaries, pet adoptions, or any significant life event. Several different dates may be honored on one chain.
The numbers across the top represent the month. Left to right of the middle row commemorates the day within the month. Bottom numbers side to side are the final two digits of the year being honored.

In an earlier post, I featured rings with hidden messages. This particular necklace may not appear to have a secret message. However, with limitless possibilities for customization, I have had the opportunity to create a couple that were quite inventive.
This custom request was for 19, 16, 03. The numbers coordinate to letters of the alphabet.
This was for a customer wanting a design that held everything special in one pendant. The days of the month for each of her children's births are commemorated on a single piece of silver.
My husband and I joked that had I been creating this style of necklace ten years ago, there may have been some interesting requests from fans of Lost (TV Series).
