Few months back when I heard the good news of my best friend's pregnancy, I was extremely happy and excited for her. I knew that the baby will be special for all of us as first of all she will be our special friend's baby and secondly the youngest of all so we can look forward to lots of pampering and fun with her. At that time I didn't even dream that the baby will bring me my biggest jewelry order till date.
When we started planning for the baby shower few weeks back, my friend called me and told me that she wanted to give a personalized baby shower favor to all the friends coming and I was to make it. For a moment I didn't know how to react. I felt so happy and touched by my friend's gesture that it brought tears to my eyes.
I sketched few designs the same night and sent it to her. She liked a simple but elegant design with a faceted gemstone hanging inside a silver oval in a silver chain to be made with a baby pink rose quartz as she is carrying a baby girl. I shopped around for different shapes and sizes of rose quartz and now I have more pink that any other color in my stash :)
Yesterday I delivered the completed pieces to my friend and she packed them nicely in personalized boxes.
Today was the baby shower. I felt on top of the world when my friend announced that the favors were made by me and extremely satisfied when our friends appreciated it. The icing on the cake was that one of the friends wore it right away...can't tell you how jubilant I felt. And you know, I got my own favor too. It will be one of my precious gifts which I will cherish for long. I wish my friend all the happiness in her life with the new baby and thank her from bottom of my heart for giving me a chance to add my personal touch to her special occasion.
