"Pretend you're good at it" Sterling silver necklace

This sterling silver disk bears a piece of advice Jenny Lawson (aka "The Bloggess") related having received from Neil Gaiman on the "The Hilarious World Of Depression" podcast when she was struggling with something: PRETEND YOU'RE GOOD AT IT. Words to live by for those of us who struggle with Imposter Syndrome or depression and/or anxiety getting in our way.


Each pendant is stamped by hand 17" sterling silver chain. The round pendant is about 16mm round, or square is 14mm and each has a brushed finish and a bit of a "rough" look to it. I'll get the spacing better on future stampings.



Also, since these are all hand-stamped, they will vary slightly in appearance, but you can expect something as close to identical as the human hand allows :)

*disclaimer: I am NOT a photographer, and my camera is only so-so. I promise you, that all the jewelry I make looks so much better in person than in a flat photo! :)

    Based on the price, I would not recommend this necklace as the pearl is MUCH smaller than what is pictured in the image. I inquired about a return, but was told I could not, the best was exchange. When purchasing, it was not indicated that the item could not be returned, so be certain you want the item. I did not exchange, as the conversation surrounding it died out, as there was an upcharge for a larger pearl/different chain. Unfortunately, I don't feel as though I can give these to my bridesmaids and will have to purchase something else.

    I'm sorry that this customer was disappointed that they couldn't send them back, but it is clearly stated in my shop policies that there are no returns. Everything is custom made as it's ordered. The materials are quality--all sterling silver--and the pearls she received are as identical in size & quality to what was in the listing photo as is possible. She didn't like the chains, so I offered to swap them for either of two different chains styles I have--no charge--she'd just be responsible for postage both directions. She asked about larger pearls, and I said that I had some but they'd be more expensive, and didn't get a response. As it is, she asked for & was given a small discount on purchase & postage--I'm not sure how else I could have managed her expectations or been more amenable. I sincerely tried.

    I’ve gotten so many compliments from women about this piece, and after I tell them about it and the charity aspect, they log on to Etsy and buy it from their phones. That’s happened twice!
    It’s a subtle nod of solidarity. Blessed be the fruit.

    This is exactly what I was looking for... delicate, well-crafted, and an important conversation starter! I'm proud to wear this piece.
