The Tin Man's Heart part ii

Last month I had worked on a very special custom necklace called The Tin Man's Heart. Some of you might remember I had originally created this necklace from last year. Interestingly enough I got an email from a gentleman who wanted to have a special custom piece to give to his wife for their 10th anniversary, he explained that the Wizard of Oz is her all time favorite film and he was even thinking of dressing up like the Tin Man, and guess what? He did, this morning I received a lovely email from Mike and he shared a photo of himself dressed up holding the necklace. He created the outfit from old clothes and duct tape.

I am just in awe of how thoughtful of an idea this is, so sweet. Mike told me that they went to Vegas and she wore the necklace around town and received many compliments, which I love to hear. I just love custom pieces and I was really honored to be a part of their anniversary and the gift they shared.

Would you ever consider making another one?
I am the mother of a son who had a heart transplant
when he was 4 months old. He has been called
the little tin man ever since. I would love something
like the tin mans heart.

Dear Anonymous,

I truly appreciate you telling me a little about yourself and the story about your son having a heart transplant. It tickles me and drives me to create when hearing how art touches people, I would be honored to do a necklace for you.

I am not sure how to contact you through blogger, but please email me or contact me through my shop.
