She {hearts} Origami Owl

I love when a product comes along that allows me to show off my “Mama” in a sophisticated and classy way. Long live the days of oversized buttons attached to purses and picture keychains that beam pride of your kiddos, and say hello to Origami Owl custom jewelry. Telling your story couldn’t be easier.

Both of my kids were born in March and obviously share a birthstone, Aquamarine. So when I began to build my locket I quickly decided on the March Heart Birthstone to be the center of attention in my locket. I also decided on 2 initials, one for the first letter on each of my child’s names. I chose the locket and chain that caught my eye, and even added on a dangle to give it a little more personality. Here’s my finished
piece, what do you think?

The wide variety of sports, hobbies, and causes makes it easy to create a Living Locket that just about anyone would love. Are you into photography? Do you love dogs? Are you a foodie? Do you have a cause that is near and dear to your heart? Origami Owl most certainly has something for you!

One piece I wish I would have ordered, and would have made my locket complete (for now!) is the “mama” plate. I think it would really wrap up my locket, so if you do order yourself one, think about adding that piece on to your order too!

She {hearts} Comparing Stella & Dot and Forever 21

I love buying fashion jewelry, and I consider it to be one of the best ways to update your “wardrobe” each season with the latest trends!  Of course for trendy accessories, it’s always a good idea to shop around so you don’t spend a lot.  It’s worth investing in classic pieces, but for “of the moment” pieces, it’s best to spend less!

I thought it might be fun to compare some pieces from Stella and Dot (great style!) and Forever 21 (great prices!).  Not everything is a “perfect match,” but I think you’ll find the comparison fun!

She {hearts} Personalized Jewelry At Jewlr

077_1

When it comes to jewelry, I am not hard to please. I love simple and dainty pieces and would never feel comfortable in lots of expensive bling. I personally love pieces that represent special things in my life and characteristics of myself. I seldom purchase or ask for random pieces just because they’re pretty. Most often, they have to mean something.

I usually gravitate towards pieces that represent peace, tranquility, and courage… all traits that I believe are vital to raising self and children. Being a mom is so important to me and with the birth of Jaxon, I realized that I am lacking jewelry that represents my role as a mom. I only have a mother heart necklace Greg bought me over 4 years ago.

078_1

I was given the opportunity to design a piece of jewelry from Jewlr. They offer just the types of jewelry I love, lots of sterling silver and white gold which are my favs, but they also have yellow and rose gold available too.

I chose the “Cherish” MOM Cut-out Ring. It’s just as beautiful in the stock photo as it is in person. I chose sterling silver with 3 birthstones; one for Jaxon, one for me, and one for Jayden… in that order :-).

She {hearts} Sira & Mara

One of my favorite thing about accessories (and specifically jewelry) is that it allows me to embrace current fashion trends without investing in a whole new wardrobe!  Paired with a basic wardrobe piece like a black blazer, some on-trend fashion jewelry can take a look from basic to fabulous!

I’m glad I recently stumbled upon Sira & Mara, a site chock-full of fashion jewelry that is affordable and trendy.  The quality of the jewelry is what you would expect for the price point, but I was quite satisfied even after wearing my chain bracelet repeatedly.

 Have you guys seen this pretty necklace all over the web? Sure ya have. But maybe not from Cheerfully Charmed, which is a small business owned and operated by a mom, just like you and me.

Isn’t it a pretty necklace? I’ve worn it a few times now and it seems to really hold up well.  I know, doesn’t really showcase it well rolling around on a blanket with my toddler, but I just couldn’t resist getting him in my shoot.

{heart} It

For a limited time Cheerfully Charmed is offering buy two get one free! That’s a deal!  I really have my eye on the red one and the colbalt blue one! But the special isn’t just on the bubble necklace, it’s on any of their necklaces, and there are some pretty ones!

She {hearts} ArtWark Handmade Jewelry

I love meaningful jewelry, especially jewelry that reflects my children. I fell in love with ArtWark‘s gorgeous, handmade jewelry (with a personal touch) the instant I came across it.

Sweet Sarah, the designer behind ArtWark‘s lovely collections, was so kind to make me a custom “Mother’s Love” necklace. ArtWark is one of our Baby Boom Virtual Baby Shower (more info coming soon!) sponsors, but despite it officially starting June 1, I wanted to be sure to feature ArtWark before Mother’s Day. These beautiful, customizable, handmade pieces are THE perfect (and affordable!)gift for any mother, grandmother, or mother-to-be.

 

ArtWark’s gorgeous “Mother’s Love” necklace is fully customizable.  It’s available in silver, gold, and antiqued finishes, with turquoise beads, rice pearls, or a single Swarovski pearl nestled in the center of the nest.  Sarah made me a custom necklace with three turquoise beads (“eggs” in this mama bird’s nest) to represent my kids- including the new baby in my belly.  I was pleasantly surprised how delicate and dainty this necklace is.  I love the look and the meaning behind this piece of jewelry and I will treasure it forever.

Be sure to check out the rest of ArtWark‘s collection.  Sarah is willing to custom-make every piece to fit your preferences.  I also love the “Generations” necklace, perfect for a grandmother and customizable with birth stones and a hand-stamped initial charm.  Sarah’s jewelry is also ideal for a bride/bridesmaids or any other special occasion.

{heart} It

ArtWark‘s gorgeous, meaningful, handmade jewelry is perfect for mamas, mamas-to-be, or any other special woman.  Not only is every piece customizable, but Sarah is a beautiful soul and a pleasure to work with.  She definitely puts a little bit of her heart into each piece she creates.

She {hearts} H2Z Wrap Bracelets

 

H2Z is a company that features trendy jewelry, accessories, and home accents.  I was tickled to learn that I would be reviewing two of H2Z’s wrap bracelets.  I’ve been eyeing these type of bracelets for awhile now.  They are so pretty!  H2Z’s handmade bracelet line includes either glass, crystal, or semi-precious beads adorning a leather wrap bracelet.


 

H2Z sent me two wrap bracelets to review, the Butterscotch-Amber Glass wrap bracelet and the Charcoal Sparkle-Silver Crystal wrap bracelet.

I love the natural beauty of each of these bracelets.  It was so hard to choose my favorites!  I have received so many compliments from others on my wrap bracelets.

They are very well made, super durable, and relatively easy to put on (with one hand).  I also love the pricepoint of these bracelets.  Similar styles can be much more expensive, H2Z’s affordability is the icing on the cake!

I could surely wear either of these bracelets to a more formal event, on date night, or even on just a casual day running errands.  They give that classy “something special” to my look, no matter where I am or what I’m doing.

Don’t miss my (ahem!) growing belly in these photos!  Baby #3 is in the oven and I’m feeling a bit, let’s say, not as glamorous lately.  Wearing a beautiful accessory like these wrap bracelets make me feel a bit more like a feminine and stylish momma!

Check out H2Z‘s line of beautiful, trendy wrap bracelets.  These handmade bracelets definitely would work with any style and any occasion.
