I first made the Complete Heart necklace last year as a donation to the SPCA. This is my reason. Meet Sadie, the best dog ever. I decided to release it for Valentine’s Day, with 20% of all proceeds going to the SPCA. So have a heart! You can read more about the symbolism behind the necklace at KMHmakes.com. #heart #doglover #petsarethebest
