This little design is a tribute to Christmas but also maternity and paternity.
The pillow is gorgeous and shining.
Quite a contrast with the new peaceful Shaker Threads of The Gentle Art!
The little charm was designed by myself and hand made in sterling (925) silver by my friend Rosella, an amazing goldsmith working in my town.
The Star of Bethlehem charm is very shining and adds special light to this peaceful family.
Beads: Mill Hill 02025
Charm: one “Star of Bethlehem” charm (code E-NP), hand made sterling (925) silver, from Giulia Punti Antichi.
