SOLD OUT — Perfect Mother’s Day gift: Silver nest necklace with freshwater pearls April 27, 2010

SOLD OUT! JUST GOT WORD — WE’VE DEPLETED THE INVENTORY… SORRY, FOLKS!

The secret is finally out! My godson’s mom wears the most beautiful necklace all the time, and I’ve been dying to ask her where she got it… Well, she’s been in touch with the vendor and they’re selling them as a fundraiser for ReadyStart (a nonprofit in Dallas). Half of the purchase price will go directly to support ReadyStart’s programs to help young children & their families through various therapies, early childhood intervention, and education.

This is THE gift to give your self/mom/grandmother/aunt/dear friend for Mother’s Day!

Here’s the scoop…

Each pendant is lovingly hand-crafted by an experienced Etsy artisan. She has conducted 140 successful transactions on Etsy.com, with 100% positive feedback. She has very generously agreed to make the pendants at a very reduced rate in order to raise maximum funds. You can choose items to be shipped directly to you or to someone else as a gift!

This pendant is created with tarnish-resistant silver plate wire wrapped and woven into a small nest and enhanced by small freshwater pearl eggs. You can pick the number of eggs (1 to 4) and the color of each (white, pink, and/or blue.) The pendant measures just under 1 1/4 inches long, including the hook, and is about 3/4 inch wide. The chain is sold separately. Please note the size of the hook is 1/8 of an inch if you wish to wear this with your own chain. Otherwise, purchase our silver-plate chain to go with it for a complete piece!

The best part is: Half of your purchase price will go to benefit ReadyStart’s programs!

Nest Egg Pendant: $17 for up to 2 eggs. $2 for each additional egg.
18 inch silver-plate chain with toggle clasp: $5.00
Direct Shipping per location: $3.00

Contact: barb_mckinney@yahoo.com
(Please be sure to let her know you heard about this deal on Being Resourceful!)

NOTE: DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, DELIVERY BY MOTHER’S DAY cannot be guaranteed… However, why not make a certificate and print out the photo of the necklace and put it in a card? Better late than never, right? 🙂

Expires: Whenever the inventory runs out, so hurry up and place your orders!

Today is Being Resourceful’s first birthday! Many, many thanks to all of our readers, and especially to those who gave me the swift kick in the pants it took for me to get this started.
