This is a powerful charm to be hung all year long, not just for Christmas. It means I love you in American Sign Language. Something every non-hearing impaired loves to hear, I speak from the heart, as this is the first sign my own hearing impaired child signed to me with the words I love you. It will forever hold a special place in my heart. I do hope you cherish this piece. Each comes with the the jute and a bead. Select open heart or closed heart. Closed heart can be engraved with a year or name.
