Vintage Style Leather Embossed Necklace~DT project for Proxxon

~Enjoy The Journey~ 

Designing with  words is something very meaningful to me and creating this leather embossed vintage style necklace with the word Journey... says it all. Many times the "journey" gets lost as we strive for your destination. This necklace is the perfect affirmation to remember on a daily basis and to enjoy the journey!
