As many of you have seen lately, I am not doing many reviews and giveaways anymore. I have just been way too busy. I still get pitched all the time from PR reps, but I just have not had the time to devote to writing posts about products and promoting giveaways, for products that I am really not passionate about. For a time I had thought that I was going to do the “professional” blogging thing, but my life has taken a turn and I am now focusing more on my graphic design business and using my blog as a means to post about my life and the things I am actually passionate about.
Well, I recently got an email from a very nice woman named Dana who runs a small jewelry company called Heart on Your Sleeve Design. She asked if I would be interested in doing a review or giveaway. I checked out her site and I was instantly drawn to one of her spirit inspired necklaces called “Joy”. I wrote her and shared that I had been through a very rough year (as many of you know already) and that God had taught me about having JOY in the midst of my difficulties. I mentioned that I loved the “Joy” necklace with the butterfly. She wrote back to me with some comments on her experiences over the past year as well. Seems like everyone has been going through a hard time. Dana then told me that she would be putting the necklace in the mail. I was thrilled! There is nothing like reviewing a product that actually means something. I have had my share of child related products, but doing a review on something JUST FOR ME is really special.
Well, I got the necklace in the mail the other day and was really impressed. I don’t know about you guys, but the packaging of a product really makes a huge impression for me. This is what the necklace looked like coming out of the box, cute right?
I wore it today, for the first time, going to church. The quality is really great. Everything is sterling silver. My 10 month old even grabbed it pretty hard and it held up really well.
I had my hubby take a few of pictures of me wearing my new necklace. I think it was the perfect match for my red top.
Heart on Your Sleeve Jewelry was inspired by Kim Newton’s desire to “wear her heart on her sleeve”. Unable to find “stylish” Christian jewelry, she began designing her own. Dana is Kim’s good friend and they both joined together as the business started to grow.
They not only offer necklaces, but also bracelets, earrings, and t-shirts. The prices are really reasonable too. And the fact that there is a meaning and scripture that inspires each piece is definitely something special.
They even have collections for special occasions and holidays!
