Personalized jewelry has always been popular and this “family tree” necklace with birthstone charms representing each member of the family is sure to please. Creating the tree pendant with the BIGkick embossing machine could not be easier and then its just a matter of attaching all the components; that makes this fun project perfect for both beginner and advanced jewelry makers. This would make a great group activity to share with family or friends–making memories together while making a memorable piece of jewelry.
