  1. I love this necklace so I ordered these charms. I realized after I got them that there is a warning on the back of the packaging. “Caution: Not intended for children 13 years and under. Certain components may contain trace amounts of lead. Do not place item in mouth or ingest.” I wanted to share because I know most people who are making diffuser jewelry are trying to eliminate toxins from their lives. Also, we know that toxins can be absorbed through our skin, which is the biggest organ in the body. I returned mine and I am looking for different charms that are leading free.

  2. i was just going through my supply boxes last night, and came across this exact locket that i too found at Hobby Lobby. i totally forgot i had it and have been trying to decide what i wanted to do with it, and i came across your post.
