Stamped Jewelry Giveaway from Blessings!






Several months ago I won a beautiful handstamped necklace made just for me!  I chose to have all seven of my children's names engraved in the large disc and it is so precious to me.  Shortly after, I discovered a local friend was making necklaces and other jewelry very similar to my special necklace.  I knew my oldest daughter, Lauren, would love one as well, so I ordered one for her.  It is one of a kind.  Very similar to the one shown in the below picture, Lauren's  has three discs with a C, E and A for my precious grandchildren.  She treasures her necklace just as much as I do mine.  It's a great way to keep your children close to your heart and is a great testimony to others.  I have had many people ask about my necklace when out in public and I am always eager to share how it has all of my children's names and to share with the inquirer about how we are so very grateful for the children that God has blessed us with. 



I love the simplicity of this piece!   Here's what Emily shares about herself and her jewelry:




"I'm a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom of 4 that loves spend time with my family, read, sing, pray, play games, watch movies, spend time on facebook, and make pretty things and bless others with them. I've been making jewelry for several years, and have wanted to make stamped jewelry for the past couple. When my little brother died in Dec, 2010, I was a mess. I couldn't focus on anything and nothing made sense anymore. I needed an "out", something I could have some peace doing and be able to pray while doing, and something to help me focus on and put my heart into. So I ordered a few basic supplies in addition to what I had, took some "crash-courses" from the internet, poured my thoughts and ideas into a notebook, and went with it. This is more than just jewelry to me. It's actually been my therapy! It is an expression of my heart, my love, and my faith. It is an expression of ME. Many of my pieces are beat up, look worn, etc., but are even more beautiful because of it - and I hope that is a reflection of me. God has brought me through so much in my life and I guarantee you I wouldn't be alive without Him. He makes beauty from ashes and my life is living proof... Please enjoy these little pieces of my heart, and know they were made with the utmost love and care. :) And of course, above all else, be blessed and serve our King."





Don't think Emily's jewelry is only for moms!  She has many pieces that anyone could wear.  Some are symbols of faith like the one above.



And some are just fun and seasonal.


And what a cute way to propose to your special lady!


Take a peek at Blessings and come back to let me know which design you like best.  That's all you have to do to enter the drawing for the $20 gift certificate.  I'll announce the winner next Tuesday, so spread the word while there's still time!

Would love the Mama's babies one. I don't know if it would fit all 6 kids. I have been eyeing the Blessings site for a while. Love the stuff. I dont' have much jewelry but have been wanting for a long time something with all 6 kids on it.

I would chose "Peace, be still..."
It would be a wonderful reminder for me when my days seem too crazy and I feel overwhelmed as a homeschooling mom of 5! :)

Oooh - I love stamped jewelry like this! I would love the Mother May I or Mama's Babies, but I would need to customize it so that all 9 names would fit! ;-) I would really love it if the Key's Please size disk could be on a necklace. Looks like everything's high customizable!
