Almost everyone has at least one pair of scissors lying around, probably in the kitchen junk drawer, so they're easy to take for granted. But did you know they were already being used in Mesopotamia as much as 4,000 years ago?

Back then they were the “spring” type, meaning the two bronze cutting blades were connected at the hand end by a flexible band of bronze, which you squeezed to bring the two blades together to make your cut.

And then many years later, around 100 ad, the Romans added the little screw around which the blades "pivoted" - basically the same type of scissors we use to this day.

And just think how many different types and variations of scissors exist today – both left-handed and right-handed - for a vast array of purposes: Surgical, garden, cosmetic, kitchen, metalwork and industrial, cigar-cutting. There's even giant scissors just for ceremonies like bridge-openings.

These particular scissors look to us like they're either for sewing and clothes-making or maybe crafting. They're small and, like real scissors, they're very straightforward, almost utilitarian-looking. Which is good, because if you're going to be so outlandish as to wear scissors on your ears, it's probably best not to overdo it.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants. I've also included a photo of a cute necklace we made for a customer with many of our themed charms.
