We may think our Bitty Blocks are small until we get a closer look at these stunning necklaces! I get the pleasure of scouring the internet for new and exciting products to feature in our Inspirations column of each issue. It is really fun to find new quilting notions, books and gifts and share them with our readers!
I stumbled upon these beautiful necklaces on Etsy and was completely mesmerized! Jennifer Heminway opened her online shop, Snippets N Bits, in 2014 and has been creating and selling these beautiful pendant necklaces ever since!
Many of Jennifer’s necklaces are custom made for individuals. She has made a necklace for a recent high school grad out of her ragged childhood baby quilt and a 90th birthday gift out of the recipient’s treasured and fragile christening gown. Each necklace has a story behind it and is truly treasured!
This is the first necklace that caught my eye. The colors and tiny pieces are absolutely stunning. Jennifer encloses the finished blocks into a locket and permanently seals them shut. The block is protected by glass so it will stand the test of time.
These little sheep make me swoon! Look how tiny and adorable they are! This appliqué block features itty bitty stitching to create sheep, flowers and a fence. How amazing is that? The necklaces come with or without bling and the chain length can be adjusted.
This necklace now lives with me! I love the elongated triangle shape and subtle color gradation. Jennifer has a variety of pendant shapes including squares, rectangles, triangles and diamonds. Each necklace is approximately 1″ to 1.5″ wide.
Each necklace is unique and uses snippets and bits of fabrics (Jennifer’s shop name is cute and clever!). There is a variety of styles to choose from, whether you are looking for modern, traditional, whimsical or elegant.
Be sure to check out her shop, Snippets N Bits, on Etsy. It is full of more beauties such as daffodils, birds, houses, trees, hearts, teacups and lots of traditional quilt blocks!
