Thank you for visiting OneSmallStory!

I live in Southern California with my family, where we homeschool, read, write, visit museums, take photos, garden, talk and create together.

The story of the pendants: I have long been a collector of vintage photos, story and school books, handwriting copybooks, and other paper ephemera.When I discovered the frames which I now use to make my pendants, I knew that I wanted to place images in them. My original purpose was to create something small and complete within itself. My favorite part of making pendants is the foraging for pieces which will go together in some mysterious way. My children often find me bent over an old text book or shuffling through old photos, trying to find the perfect combination.

My original purpose was to create something small and complete within itself. My favorite part of making pendants is the foraging for pieces which will go together in some mysterious way. My children often find me bent over an old text book or shuffling through old photos, trying to find the perfect combination.

My pendants can be used for more than jewelry: ornaments, gift tags, place cards or napkin holders, keychains, charms for ribbon bookmarks - the possiblities are nearly endless! Many of my pendants depict women, making them perfect gifts for woman friends, bridal parties, mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers. I also love to use images of children, making perfect gifts for a new mom or grandmother.

Just the tiniest technicality: I included this in my shop policies and in each pendant description, but I also need to say it here. OneSmallStory pendants are not waterproof. Please take care!
