A (belated) thank you!
One of my favorite Christmas presents this year came from my friend and dance teacher, Amy, who blogs at One Artsy Mama. Jewelry design is one of her many talents, and she made this amazing necklace for me, complete with some of my favorite things: an anchor charm, and "k + n" stamped into a metal disc. You can check out her tutorial on how she made it here.
I just love that it's so personal-- the anchor is a personal symbol I've taken on, along with a clipper ship. A ship for the voyage that is life, an anchor to keep you grounded along the way. See tattoo:
I love it so.
If you would like to own an Amy original, check out her Etsy shop here.
And if you're in the MD area, Amy is an excellent ballroom dance instructor! She puts up with all of our sarcasm, arguing, and N.'s inappropriate comments every other Friday night. She's truly the best! Check out her company, Anyone Can Dance, if you're interested (and you should be... take a lesson with us! the more the merrier!).
