A Birthday Prezzie for my darling niece....

My sweet niece Echo turned 15 yesterday. Wow, time flies!! We live in different provinces, so I wanted to make her something special, something that can kind of take my place when I'm not around. So I decided to make her a talisman. I wanted to give her love and protection from afar. She's made with lots of awesome, found things. I made a 'love' pendant to hang from her belt. She has tonnes of vintage jewellery that has been passed down. I also added a shell I found in Italy and beautiful vintage buttons. She has sweet grass arms and darling little wrist cuffs made of leather. I LOVED making this little talisman for my gorgeous niece. As it turns out, she loved it, which made me really happy.

Happy Birthday, Echo!!!
