Look what I just bought...

Do you pick out your own Mothers' Day gift? This was a year when I definitely did!

I have spent months looking for an elephant necklace. I wanted one to wear as a reminder of the baby that we lost. (We buried him with a stuffed elephant and later learned that elephants also grieve losses and even cry!).

And then I found this beauty.

Tonight I finally put it in my cart and ordered!

Shizendesigns has been great to work with. We talked several times to make sure I was getting just what I wanted! They are even going to engrave my children's initials on the back.

There is a super adorable tiny version of the elephant necklace too:

I did not get a discount or freebie or compensation for this post. Just wanted to share one of my new favorite shops!

  1. So cute. What a beautiful idea to remember your chld with. My Mom, sisters and I have angel necklaces to remember the baby my sister lost. Thank you for sharing.

  2. What a sweet reminder! I'm sorry for your loss...I've lost 2 babies, and bought the beanie baby elephant "peanut" for each...there is something so sweet about an elephant...I didn't know they grieved and even cried...maybe that's why we are drawn to them. Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. Tammy - I feel truly honored that my jewelry is going to be part of your special memory. Thank you for choosing my jewelry among ALL the beautiful things available on Etsy. :)


  4. I am so sorry for your loss, but what a beautiful piece to remember by.

  5. How wonderful. It's a beautiful necklace. And I'm so terribly sorry about your baby. I can't imagine something so terrible.

  6. That is such a sweet necklace to have as a reminder. My prayers are with you.

  7. What a precious reminder for you to keep forever. I can't imagine your loss and am so sorry. I love the necklace, it is so sweet! And a great idea to buy your own present...maybe I'll do that myself :)

  8. What a beautiful necklace...I love that you were able to find such a precious reminder of your baby.

  9. Oh how sweet. What a great way to honor your loss. Thank you for sharing!

    I love elephants, although for a less personal reason. They are such fascinating animals.

  10. Thank you all for your sweet comments. We miss our baby and think of him every day. It is hard to believe it has almost been 2 years. But we know this isn't the end for us. Because of Jesus, we're going to heaven when the time comes and we will be reunited with our sweet little boy. :)

  11. Thanks for visiting my blog. The elephant necklace is precious. It brought tears to my eyes. I have a friend who just had a miscarriage. It made me think of her.
