ETSY LOVE: The Pretty Peacock
I speak as a very happy customer about my shopping experience at Etsy's The Pretty Peacock!
About 10 days ago, I first spoke with the owner, the amazing Ana, about a custom charm representing Pancreatic Cancer Awareness so I could have her made a pendant with a heart saying "Dad" on it for me. She special ordered the charm with the little purple stone and she also made me a pendant for a "mother's necklace" for me.
I am extremely pleased with Ana's phenomenal customer service and professionalism. She was a gem to work with an to talk to every step of the way.
The attention to detail goes beyond customer service; her craftsmanship is wonderful as well!
I love both pieces from this shop, particularly the necklace with the verse from the popular children's book, Guess How Much I Love You? Tom and I have read this story countless times to both boys and it has a special place on our bookshelf and in our hearts.
One charm of the necklace says "Love you to the moon," which comes from that book. There are two small charms each having a name on it for my boys. The top charm is of a moon. They are hung on a shimmering sterling silver chain. I just love this!
The necklace simply saying "Dad" will also be worn often, especially for November's Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, and over the next few months which are so hard without Dad. His birthday is December 9th and the anniversary of his death is January 29th. This necklace will be worn often, and Dad will be close to my heart as always...but this time on a silver heart and chain.
There are so many lovely and very special pieces at The Pretty Peacock. I am thinking of ordering a necklace for my mom with the names of her grandchildren. I think she'd like it very much.
If you are looking for a special gift for yourself, or for a loved one, there's something for you in this shop. Prices are fair and competitive. I paid $38 for the necklace with Nick and Ben's names on it. The standard version is $34 and the extra disc was $4. The awareness pendant with charm was $36.
As I mentioned earlier, I ordered on 9.28.08 and received both on 10.9.08. That is great considering the work involved for 2 and the fact that the awareness charm had to be ordered. They arrived in a lovely box very appropriate for gift giving.
