"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."

"Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit.

"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."

"Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit by bit?"

"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."

-- by Margery Williams, from The Velveteen Rabbit --

This solid sterling silver oval pendant is an adaption of the beautiful children's book above. A wonderful sentiment for a loved one, or a reminder of childhood. It's also my favorite part of being a Mother!

Hand-forged and stamped sterling silver, with a sterling Velveteen Rabbit charm.

Suspended from a sterling rolo chain with secure hand-looped closures, the sterling tags and the rabbit are independent from one another and move separately. On your neck, the rabbit partially covers the pendant. The oval pendant is just over 1" long and about 1/2" wide.

You can order this with or without the Name Charm(s) - Just select from the menu. Need another variation? Just ask.

We are also happy to stamp your own custom message in place of this one. Let us know what you have in mind, and we'll see if it fits.

♥ This item is hand-stamped, and the letters will not be perfectly straight - it's part of the charm of this artisan item :) Additionally, stamping is a much deeper impression, and also blackened, to be much more visible than engraving. We have other hand-stamped items available in our store, if you would like to see more examples.

♥ All orders are packaged suitably for gift giving.

♥ Most retail items ship within about 1-2 weeks from order date. Need it sooner? Just ask. Often I can accommodate! Every single piece is sawn, hammered, pierced, filed, oxidized, buffed, and finished by hand - right here. We take great pride in our work, and even though our processes might be a bit slower, they are time-honored with classic proven quality. If you want the best hand-hewn look, you have come to the right place.

♥ First class shipping is FREE!

This seller usually responds within 24 hours.

I offer wholesale pricing on many items for group buys and brick and mortar shops. You can find my wholesale line sheets on the Etsy wholesale site. Contact me for more information.
Since almost everything I make is custom, the best way to order and let me know is to take a look at the options available in the item description for that listing.

Don't worry - I'll never make your order without checking for your personalization, if it was not included with your order.

I can make just about anything, so if you don't see what you want in my shop, just message me and I can discuss a quote, options, and even a custom listing should you wish.

My finishes here: bonniejeanmetalsmith.com/pages/finishes
My symbols here: bonniejeanmetalsmith.com/pages/symbols

Remember, not all fonts, finishes, or symbols are available on all pieces.
Most retail items ship within about 1-2 weeks from order date. IF YOU NEED AN ITEM SOONER than the listed forging time, contact me - often I can get a single order out sooner if requested.

Exceptions: During busy holidays, it can take longer. If you are needing it for a specific occasion or date, check with me and make sure you'll receive it in time, or purchase express postage.

Sometimes, items ship SOONER, because they are ready-stock. If this is the case, the listing will state that.

Any any case - if you need something by a certain time - please contact me and double check. If I know, I can help. If I don't know... it is subject to fate.
Yes! All of our items arrive in professional packaging, with an information card about our items. Very suitable for gift giving. No receipt is included (saving a tree and also your recipient) because you can view it online at any time.

Gift cards handwritten upon request - no charge!
Since I actually hand- forge my items, most of them can be altered, changed, sized, etc. I try to be very thorough in my descriptions, but I encourage you to ask if you need a sizing exception. I can usually accommodate - and happily!
