I couldn't be happier with this necklace! So cute and great quality. The seller was amazing as well and tweaked it for me a little. Loved the product and the company. I will definitely purchase from her again.

Really simple and lovely design. I will look forward to wearing it.
Hi, my name is Lois and I thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit more about me. I discovered Etsy a number of years ago when I was looking for something special for my daughter's birthday. One look and I was hooked. I loved the concept of handmade and vintage, and have been buying gifts for others (and myself) on Etsy ever since.
I opened my own shop in 2010, selling glass pendants with the kinds of images I have always loved. When I was a small girl, my grandparents had a book called "Tomtebobarnen" by the Swedish author Elsa Beskow. The title translated to "Children of the Forest." Even though I couldn't understand a word of the Swedish, I was transfixed for hours by the drawings which included ethereal älvor (Scandinavian elves) playing seesaw on a twig in the moonlight with little forest children wearing toadstool caps.
That book started my love affair with all sorts of similar illustrations. I’m particularly fond of work by Beatrix Potter, Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, Mary Cicely Barker, Molly Brett and Racey Helps.
Through Etsy, I've learned lots about vintage rhinestones, cabochons, cameos and beads (through the supply shops). I think they're just beautiful. I enjoy creating with them, as well as glass pendants with beautiful images , at a table in our extended kitchen.
Where does my shop name come from? Both of my grandfathers settled in Connecticut after immigrating here from Sweden in the mid-1920's. They married my grandmothers who were the daughters of Swedish immigrants. My maternal grandmother was named Agnes and she married my grandfather who was named Magnus. Magnus' sister lived in Sweden and was named Fanny. Guess who she married? That's right - Manny!
Thank you for your visit.

How do I care for the jewelry from your shop?
All of the items in my shop are gentle pieces that should be treated with care. Please do not get your piece of jewelry wet. Take if off before washing your hands, showering and swimming. Please avoid contact with soaps and lotions. Be sure to store the jewelry in a jewelry box or air tight container, especially those created with raw brass.
What can you tell me about raw brass?
A lot of the jewelry in my shop is made using raw brass. This means there is no finish applied to the metal. Raw brass has a nice brightness to it that I like - and I hope you will as well.
Raw brass will patina over time. In order to make the raw brass bright again, you can use Brasso which you can find at your local supermarket or at Home Depot. Be sure to use a gentle hand when polishing with a lint-free cloth and try to polish along the grain of the metal (not in circles). And please be sure to polish only the brass, not any other component of the jewelry!
