You Are My Sunshine Necklace
You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You'll never know, dear
How much I love you...
One of the most iconic songs that we sing to our children to show our unending love for them is embodied in a beautiful handmade birthstone piece. This sterling silver charm holds an intaglio style sun emerging from the clouds, with birthstones in each of the sun's rays.
Designed by my 15 year old nephew for my sister as a Mother's Day gift, this piece is a testament to our memories and bonds with our children - my nephew remembers my sister singing this song to him underneath a tree when he was young.
The birthstones in this piece are completely customizable; pictured is (top to bottom) pink tourmaline, citrine and peridot. On the back of this meaningful charm is the hand engraved message of "When skies are grey," but any engraved message or mantra is possible.
This piece is handmade start to finish in Philadelphia, PA, USA, and takes approximately 3 weeks to complete. Where possible, all of the stones are recycled as is the silver.
After ordering, message me with your choice of birthstones, as well as your customized engraving if you do not wish to have "when skies are grey." I will then be in touch to finalize your design and order before moving ahead with production.
This is one of several pieces in our Memoir jewelry line designed around stories and parenthood - be sure to check out the shop.
