Recently I sampled a service from the company KidzCanDesign when I had my oldest daughter’s artwork turned into a necklace. Personally, I thought the process of having my daughter create the art and the service of producing the jewelry was very meaningful to me. When I was in college, I majored in art for a semester when I studied drawing, sculpture, and photography. After earning around 15 credits in studio art, I ended up dropping my art major because I always felt that my artwork didn’t fit with my art teachers’ standards. Now, as I became a K-6 certified teacher and a teacher to my homeschooling preschooler, I learned to show children how to find beauty and appreciation for the art they created with some kids’ jewelry.

Review of the Kids’ Jewelry Design

Something I loved about the service would be that it helped create a sentimental memory and memorialized a day of making art. I worked with my daughter for an entire day to encourage her to make art that she would want memorialized with a necklace. After listening to what would happen to the art, my daughter tried to draw something that would look nice as a pendant. Because my daughter was only 3 1/2 years old, drawing the right picture to make into a necklace required practice. My daughter sketched again and again to try to make something pretty that she felt I would be proud to wear. I loved the result of my daughter’s practice – a beautiful butterfly.

Creating the necklace required little work on my part. I took a photo of the drawing with my camera, uploaded the photo to my computer, and sent it to the company. Because the necklace required a month to be manufactured, the frustrating part for me was waiting. Luckily, I was not trying to order the necklace for a specific occasion, and I was glad that my item arrived about a month before Christmas. The item made a very special gift from my daughter to me for the holidays.

When the item arrived, I was happy with the quality of the necklace. I felt that the company showed a true representation of my daughter’s drawing. Lines and dots were in the correct place. My daughter was very proud when I showed her the necklace, and she asked if she could wear it when she got bigger! I wholeheartedly had a pleasant experience ordering an item from the company, and I planned to memorialize my younger daughter’s art with a necklace when she grew older.
