A Custom Made Pendant From Across the Pond
On Friday I teased about a package that arrived and the excitement it caused in the household.
My wife and I both joined in with the Superbowl contest put on by @monsterjamgold and although I tapped out early, my wife stayed in the game all the way to the Superbowl. She didn't win the grand prize (a custom silver medal), but was still gifted very generous crypto prize.
Chatting with @monsterjamgold he told me about the process he uses to make custom jewelry, using an image or writing.
He offered me a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: scan my child's writing and he would make a pendant from it for (early) mother's day. Wow, I thought, how often does an opportunity like that show up?
My daughter wrote "mommy" and I sent the photo to the silversmith himself and before I knew it, he was already making a 3d model of it. Amazing.
Then it was a model IRL!
The finished product, chain and all, looks amaing. He did a really good job on this pendant.
The Big Reveal
The children all gathered around while mommy opened the letter from the UK. The first thing she saw was a postcard of JFK and brothers, truly a piece of history.
She continued unpacking items from the letter and discovered an old roman coin! Easily over 1000 years old, from a time and place much different from our own.
And further a collection of old US stamps! They have a wonderful old smell to them (I know I'm weird) and the history behind each one is unique. Some are over 100 years old!
The best part was when she saw the pendant. The children were just as excited about it as mommy was!
The children were just as excited (maybe moreso) than mommy! She recognized our daughter's handwriting right away and admired how it turned out. She's been wearing it since it arrived and the whole family is happy about the generous gift.
A giant thank you to @monsterjamgold for this generous gift, it brought great joy to this household. Your skill and ability is amazing and this unique gift will become a family heirloom for generations to come!
Thank you @monsterjambold For Your Kindness and Generosity!
Bless the Most High!
Teach Your Children Liberty from Sin
We encourage parents to teach their children principles of Godliness, beginning with the Word and an understanding who God is and what His Son has done to form a relationship with us.
No one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or straw, his workmanship will be evident, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will prove the quality of each man’s work. 1 Corinthians 3:11-13
Teach Your children Liberty from Tyranny
Second to this is the principle of self-determination and freedom, lest we loose the ability to teach our children the first principle in future generations. Our children read the Tuttle Twin books, specifically to learn libertarian principles, which most people learn later in life. These books are useful for our family, and yours, to teach children concepts that seem complicated, but are made simple in these books.

Hello my friend! 😊
What a cool surprise to receive, such a beautiful blessing and with your own child's handwriting making it even more special. It'll be neat, having each different generation explain to the next, where it came from. 😊
I really like the finished product, nice work @monsterjamgold! 😊
That last picture with your girls hugging your lovely wife is definitely one to make copies of, one for each of them to keep in their own photo albums, so they can recapture that moment each time one of them see it. 😊
God bless you and your wonderful family. Have an awesome day my fabulous friend! 😊
Whether the gift is small or big, the joy a person receives is greater because a person works hard to get it. This Silver ponds looks so beautiful and amazing. Nothing can be better than a mother for children the way we see mother and children are very happy. I pray you all have such a happy life together.
Wow! Even I was excited! I can imagine how my mom felt!
