A special request!

I want to share a story (I have permission to do so) about one of my customers and her special request regarding one of my necklaces at Lula Boutique. The request was to add the letter "K" to the "Lily & Swallow" necklace. The reason for this is because her parents are adopting a little girl from China and through the entire process she has always called her "my little lily." She also has always been in love with swallows and both her and her new little sister's names start with a "K"...so the necklace would mean so much to her because it would represent her and her new little sister. So here's the final design with the "K" added...
Ahhhh...Seriously, I had tears in my eyes when I was asked to make this and still do when I think about it! Seriously, soooo special and I am so grateful and honored to have made this necklace that will mean so much to someone.
