This snowy Friday I am veering away from all things detox and towards all things sentimental and girly. I came accross this amazing jewlery maker, The Vintage Pearl, before the holidays, but when I found the website, their deadline for holiday orders had passed, and it seemed too sad to share it and tempt you with something you couldn't have or give this season. Now, with Valentine's Day sparkling in the not too distant future, I thought I could go ahead and share. I love the simple hand-crafted jewelry on this site, and the idea of creating a piece that is representative of your family. I think any mama would be thrilled to have a something sentimental to wear close to her heart which represents her children. I love the simple design of the piece above, and the idea of the simple hand-stamp of your baby's initial plus his or her birthstone. The best part? You can add a charm and a stone for each babe, and have a truly personal and eclectic keepsake that is stylish as well. This would also make an amazing Mother's Day gift, but I just couldn't wait until May to share! I also think that this would be a touching gift from a new papa to the mother of his child, or to a devoted grandma as well. Brides could give bridesmaids a necklace with their own initial and a stone in her wedding color. The ideas go on and on, and this is just one of her many lovely designs. Menfolks, take note: it is rare to find an occasion where jewelry is not the right choice for a gift! And at $25, the necklace above is affordable, while being every bit as sentimental and special as a precious stone. Love it.
Happy Friday, and stay tuned for more on The Cleanse!
