Here are 3 pendants I was recently asked to make for special gifts. They were all made with genuine vintage items so are completely unique.

- A 50th birthday present for a lady from the Flint area of Wales but living in Yorkshire. I am told Helen is very proud of her Welsh roots and so was asked to make something special to remind her of that. The small charms feature a Welsh dragon from a vintage postage stamp and the month and year of her birthday found on a genuine vintage postmark.

- A birthday present for soemone who is originally from Dumbarton made using a genuine vintage postmark. I searched high and low for this Dumbarton postmark and when I finally found one it was printed on this beautiful pink stamp - how lucky!

- This was a graduation gift from a mother to a daughter. The recipient had made the decision to stay in London after graduating and the mum wanted to celebrate this for her but also remind her of home, which is featured in the tiny charm. Her mum must have felt very proud presenting this to her for such a special occassion!
