This charm is inspired by the beautiful mimosa trees that grew down the road from our old house in Texas. They were not a native species, but definitely not a nuisance either. Their flowers provided food for many bees and were a great source for all natural tea. Their fragrance is intoxicating and when a breeze blew through their leaves it was always beautiful. The charm measures a little over half an inch across and the bale is 3mm on inside. Every marking on my hand stamped pieces is like a brush stroke on a painting to create a picture. The stamps that I use are all custom made by me to create my own original designs. It often takes several separate strikes with multiple stamps to create a picture. All my jewelry is one of a kind and made to provide a sense of comfort and hope for the one wearing it. I put a lot of love into all my pieces and they are each different like the ones wearing them. No chemicals are used to coat, nor glues used for joints or attaching stones. Any joining of metals is with silver or copper solder, depending on the metal.
