Marin Mommies presents a guest article by Liz Scherotter.
A couple years ago, I was invited to a Stella & Dot trunk show. What is a Stella & Dot trunk show, you might ask? It’s a gathering where women hang out together and a Stella & Dot stylist is on hand to help the guests. Basically, it’s playing dress up with a personal stylist! No long presentation, no heavy sales pitch… just fun and fashion in a casual relaxed environment. What I immediately discovered was a great line of jewelry that is beautiful and affordable (half the line is under $50.)
Here is a look at some mommy faves from Stella & Dot.
Versatile Necklaces (Spice up your date night!)
Quite a few Stella & Dot pieces can be worn in multiple ways. These necklaces can be worn to suit your mood. In challenging economic times, why not get a piece that can be worn multiple ways, like many necklaces in one!
Tempest Necklace (just featured in the October 2012 issue of InStyle Magazine; pictured above)
The ultimate statement piece, blending diverse elements of steel chain, brass cupchain, distressed black acrylic stones, silk ribbon, and an intricate brass closure detailed with pave glass stones.
Looking for a truly unique gift for Mother's Day? Check out the custom fingerprint jewelry from Imprecious. Imprecious' Robin Foley creates delicate silver charms that are absolutely one-of-a-kind, as they feature your child's fingerprint.
Choose from a selection of chains, bracelets, earrings, or jewelry sets with any number of charms. Imprecious will send you a print capture kit; follow the instructions and return the prings in the included pre-paid envelope. You can see how it all works on their website here. Robin is always available via email to answer questions during the process to ensure the highest quality imprints for your charms.
After Imprecious receives your imprints, your individually hand-crafted jewelry will be delivered in two to four weeks. (So if you're thinking of ordering for Mother's Day, you should probably get on it now! Rush service is available, though.)
Prices start at $128 and vary depending on style and number of charms. You can also customize your jewelry with any number of "embellishments"—small additional charms including birthstones, tags, beads, hearts, and initials.
Mother’s Day is around the corner, and it’s never too early to start thinking about the perfect gift for the moms in your life (which can include yourself, of course). I like to get gifts that that involve my children. One of my wish list items this year is a piece of custom photo jewelry by mom-owned tj & co. You send them your favorite photos and they seal them into a sterling silver pendant for a necklace or bracelet.
