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.

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.

She {hearts} Putapuredukes

Who doesn’t {heart} a little handmade goodness?!


Keight, the talent behind Putapuredukes, is a momma of two gorgeous kiddos and creates so many pretty/fun/useful accessories for baby and momma (or any woman, really!) for her lovely little shop.  Favorites?  I can’t pick just one.  Currently loving her flat iron covers, unique cuffs, camera strap covers, and infinity scarves.  Oh, and the boppy covers… somebody stop me!  Most items are customizable, and some even personalized (with a name, etc).  Keight has a beautiful selection of fabrics to choose from, too.

A few months ago, I ordered one of Keight’s jewelry rolls to bring some order to my wayward traveling-with-jewelry ways.  I picked the fabric (LOVE) and Keight added the coordinating zipper and ribbon.  This little bag has been a lifesaver!  Not only is it so pretty to look at and extremely well made, but I am able to keep my rings, earrings, and necklaces sorted and safe rather than ending up with all my jewelry in one big tangled pile.

 

{heart} It

Check out all of Keight’s lovely handmade items in her shop, and while you’re at it, check out her blog, too.  She’s a funny, tell-it-like-it-is lady.  It doesn’t take much to love her.

She {hearts} Starfish Project

I love supporting companies that are making a difference in the world!  Starfish Project restores hope to exploited women of Asia by providing them with job opportunities (and many other things, such as counseling, shelter, and vocational training) and the ability to rise above where they have come from.  You can read more about Starfish Project here!

Starfish Project creates beautiful jewelry that you will feel proud to wear.  Two of my absolute favorite items of jewelry are created by Starfish Project!  The Oval Bali Design Earrings are my go-to earrings, since they work with pretty much any outfit!  I wear them with jeans and a sweater, but also feel comfortable pairing them with something dressy for a more formal occasion.



The Engraved Miao Silver Bangle (Concave) is gorgeous and adds a special touch to an otherwise ordinary outfit.  A great cuff like this is an essential piece for a pregnant woman, by the way, since it accentuates your wrist (i.e. the only part of you that hasn’t changed sizes!).  I find myself reaching for both of these pieces of jewelry many times each week.  Starfish Project has many other great pieces as well to fit any woman’s style!

Purchase jewelry from Starfish Project here, starting at $6.99 (or, tell your significant other that jewelry from Starfish Project would make a great Valentine’s Day gift).

She {hearts} Bottlehood

Bottlehood.

What a beautiful company!

All BottleHood glassware is created from wine,beer, liquor and water bottles from local San Diego restaurants, bars and events.

BottleHood uses local craftspeople to turn the bottles into great looking glassware, sold by local retailers back into our community.

Bottlehood’s glassware has a significantly lower carbon footprint as compared to recycled or landfilled bottles. A glass bottle takes more than 4000 years to decompose in a landfill!

 

necklace review

I am in love with my sea-glassy looking repurposed bottle necklace.  Truth be told, I’d order SO much more of the beautiful products made by Bottlehood. The colors. The textures. The beauty.  (why yes, I am addicted to collecting bottles and sea glass, how ever did you know?!)  And Bottlehood feeds my obsession. Totally and completely.

The fact that the bottles are local, saved from landfills, that by repurposing the bottles jobs are created, beauty is created, and everything is unique.  Could there be a better gift?

And so many choices!! Also offered at Bottlehood are bowls, trays, jars, candles, dishes, platters, jewelry, juice glasses, lighting, shot glasses, tumblers, vases, ornaments, and gift sets.

She {hearts} Hazelaid Discounts

IMG_1188 copyIf you’ve followed She {hearts} It since the beginning… I am sure you have heard me talk about my love for Hazelaid. It is one of my favorite companies around & the owners are precious!

You can read my full review on Baltic Amber HERE & HERE.

This post however is to make you all aware of something Hazelaid now offers. Not to long ago they started selling their products through Amazon… so that those with Amazon prime could take advantage of the FREE SHIPPING offered.

I use amazon prime & shopping with it for Christmas has been amazing.

To those curious why Owen still wears his Amber… even though he has the majority of his teeth, he actually is still teething. He has 2 year molars coming in right now… Also Baltic Amber helps with so much more than just teething…

“Amber is also known to reduce inflammation of the throat, ear and stomach and to fight irritation, infections and respiratory disease as it dramatically improves the body’s immunity….. Many adults report improvement of arthritis discomfort and carpal tunnel pain in their hands when wearing amber on the wrists. You can think of it as a natural Ibuprofen.”

There are lots of benefits! That go way beyond the teething stage :)

{heart} It

So if you are in the market for a baltic amber necklace or possibly hazelwood… check out the Amazon Prime listings through Hazelaid… or if you don’t use amazon prime, you can still shop via www.hazelaid.com.

She {hearts} Savings

Hazelaid would like to offer our readers 10% off any purchase throughout this Christmas season.

So at checkout use the promo: sheheartsit10
