Handmade crafts have a special place in my heart. Even though I studied industrial design, which is all about designing products that can be manufactured in bulk, I really love the personalization and care that goes into crafting a single product.
Omerica Organic is an environmentally conscious, Denver-based shop that crafts beautiful jewelry pieces out of wood. My friend Esther, posted about them a few months ago on her blog, and I knew I needed to add one of these little jewels to my collection.
After browsing their site, I spotted this turtle necklace.
Sea turtles hold a very special place in my heart. They are one of my favorite animals to spot when we go diving.
So, I informed the husband that I wanted this turtle as my push gift.
And this past Thursday I finally received this little guy.
Isn’t he a beauty?
Oh, and our new little addition to the family isn’t too shabby either.
