Congratulations on your new shop(s)!
I absolutely adore the pea in a pod necklace
Such a beautiful and sweet piece, it would be a perfect gift for the expectant mother (and a great shower gift for the mom who doesnt need a lot of baby goodies).

Steph Bond said...

Hi there Jo,
CONGRATULATIONS on your new store(s) and the launch of Lovestamp. The products are gorgeous and it's so hard to choose, but I like Beloved the best (of course I choose the most expensive piece!) and then Heartsong. I think Beloved would sit beautifully on your chest with the separated chain, and I like the thickness of the ring. GOOD LUCK with your opening; perfect timing for Christmas.
Best wishes,

I just found your blog via your made it store - Im in love!! I adore beloved, and plan on leaving the page open for hubby to see! lets hope he takes the hint!!
Beautiful! Good luck with your stores, but from the work i have just seen you will have no trouble!!

Christine said...

I like things a little out of the ordinary, which is probably why the square adore is my absolute favorite of all of the necklaces. And of course having four children to put one name on each side, for together they make us a family. What a great gift idea for a new mom, mothers' day, Christmas, or just because.

It's extremely difficult to pick a fave but I think it has to be:
Congratulations! I will post a link on my blog tonight for your giveaway.

I LOVE the pea in the pod pendant, and I totally can't work out how you gave the silver the green tinge, but it really is beautiful!

That said, I also really like the square adore, I have a couple of pieces of jewelry dedicated to my sons, and I love wearing them :D

Good luck with the store!!
