We love a piece of jewelry that celebrates your children with sweetness, charm, and style. Wouldn’t this make a perfect holiday treat for yourself or maybe grandma? Well lovely prudent ladies, we are giving away on Heart of Gold Necklace from our sponsor Alloy Jewelry! You’ll be able to customize it with up to 18 letters for your little bean or beans. Here’s the details:
This is the perfect necklace for those who love the look of mixed metals. It is truly representitive of Alloy Jewelry’s style and shows that “mommy jewelry” can be artisan and tasteful! The heart is Rose Gold Vermeil plating over Thai Silver and is slightly domed to fit snug in the domed disc. The disc is 19 mm (a bit smaller than a US quarter) and is domed and the edges are hammered to give texture.
The artist who handmakes each of these gorgeous pieces is named Leah. Alloy Jewelry came about after the birth of her second son. She had been doing freelance editing for a publishing company and found it extremely hard to sit down in front of a computer to work after being exhausted from caring for a 2 year-old and an infant all day. With much encouragement from her dear family and friends, she decided to ditch editing and start selling her personalized creations. She instantly LOVED sitting down to “work” and would sneak away every quiet moment to complete orders.
As long as she can remember, Leah’s father has been dragging her into antique stores across Vermont. She remembers her resistance to these adventures subsiding as she began to notice that each antique store had at least one glass case of historic, interesting, and breathtakingly beautiful estate jewelry. Now, upon entering every antique store she possibly can (completely voluntarily), she finds herself admiring the antique broaches, rings, and earrings and wonders what the person who once owned them was like.
Alloy Jewelry is set apart from simply being categorized as “mommy jewelry”. Yes, it is personalized and hand-stamped, but it’s tasteful designs make each piece an artisan work of wearable art. The mixture of metals and classic, simple, yet beautiful designs are inspired by Leah’s love of antiques and their timelessness.
I am inspired by Leah’s conviction to follow her heart and I wish her all the success in the world. So to enter this giveaway, take a look at the Alloy Jewelry shop, then come back here and leave a comment telling us which piece is your fave. Also tell us if you could follow your heart, where it would take you. I love the Sterling Bar Initial Necklace pictured above, and if I could follow my heart this morning, I think it would take me to a frothy cappuccino at a teensy iron table on the Champs Elysees with Carleton & Scarlet.
