Mama Kangaroo Pendant by DragonsAndBeasties Mama Kangaroo Pendant by DragonsAndBeasties
The story behind the pendant, in the mother's words:

"My son was born extremely premature (3 months early), and the only jewelry I've worn has been my wedding band. In the n.i.c.u. (neonatal intensive care unit) you have to practically scrub down every time you enter a nursery. So after my own hospital stay where I had to keep the jewelry off anyway, it just didn't make sense to continue wearing any. So I'm really happy that something that celebrates my relationship with my little joey will be the first jewelry set that I put on in months. In the n.i.c.u. mommies are encouraged to follow the example of mama kangaroos and practice kangaroo care - improving their preemie's health and hopefully shortening their hospital stay. Well every time I put on my earrings and necklace I'll think of everything my family went through and smile because of how far my we've come."

It's the one's with stories behind them, like this one, that make my job so rewarding :)

There are matching earrings too! The joey is super tiny. The mama kangaroo is just 1 inch tall.

I absolutely love the story behind these little kangaroos. It made them that much more special to work on! I'm so glad you and your little joey are both doing well now. Would you mind if I share the pendant's story in the description? It makes it so much more than just a pendant. I am honored that you chose me to make such a wonderful symbol of love between mother and child. :love:

This reminds me of a trip to the Miami Zoo. Mom and I went to look at the kangaroo exhibit, and there were loads of children around us. The kids pointed to one of the kangaroos saying "Look! You can see the baby's foot from the mommy's pouch!" Mom and I looked at the kangaroo, and then to each other, trying to stifle our laughter.

That was a boy kangaroo.
