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. All my jewelry is solid Sterling Silver and/or Copper. 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.
