Vanessa has frequented a few states in her day, and she holds a special place in her heart (and on her necklace) for each of them. This made her realize that not all of the states are getting the charming attention they deserve. In fact, it inspired her to make molds and resin charms of all of the fine fifty states of this union. And of course, the love extends to Illinois, and by extent, Chicago—she's even had customers take her Chicago flag pieces abroad to remind them of home.
