Both my sister and I run, so here's what I came up with:
I wanted a charm of Mercury's winged sandal, but once again my fantastic idea was limited to what was available at the charm store. So I settled for a running shoe.
Going with the theme of Mercury's winged sandal in an abstract way, a set of wings charm went on the silver necklace. It could mean 'run like the wind', but that certainly doesn't describe my running style - slow and steady! This one also gets a copper charm with 13.1 to signify my half-marathon, which I ran for the American Cancer Society.
I also made a charm necklace for my niece's birthday, which was just before Halloween:
Putting charms with the stamped blanks personalize each necklace and make them fun! I hope she and my sister like their necklaces!
