February 14th is weeks away but it seems love is in full bloom in retail stores across the country. It’s hard to believe those red-lined candy canes were so quickly replaced by conversation hearts, valentine cards, teddy bears, and stockings of an entirely different kind. Yes, the best gifts will be gone in a hurry – in stores, that is. In the handmade market, though, right now is the perfect time to start shopping for the perfect gift to tug at her heartstrings and support handmade. Over the holidays, so many couples popped the question; in the next few weeks or months, brides-to-be across the country will be asking “will you be…” to another special person in their life: their bridesmaids. Asking “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” is an occasion that we think calls for something shiny, sweet, and sentimental – heart-felt, perhaps? – and we think you ought to get first dibs before the husbands and boyfriends nab the best handmade gifts. So, in honor of those best girlfriends who stood next to you in line at recess, who answered the phone in the middle of the night to heed advice, and to those who would laugh with you so hard you could barely breath (we all have at least one of those girlfriends!) we present these 14 heart shaped pendants sure to tug at your bridesmaids’ heartstrings. And, to the boyfriends and husbands out there, you’re welcome: we’ve done the hard work and uncovered 14 beautiful handmade ideas that will last longer than a dozen roses ever could. Bookmark this page and remember to support handmade! Each item listed below is handcrafted by an artisan and made-to-order exclusively for her.
