I first heard about Origami Owl Custom Jewelry when my sister-in-law shared the living lockets she had made for herself and her girls in remembrance of her husband Jeff (you can read more about Marne's story here). I thought they were beautiful and a very precious keepsake. I know her girls will cherish them and remember the sweet times with their daddy.
I checked out the Origami Owl website afterward to find out more about the company. It was created by a 16 year old with the mission "to be a force for good; to love, inspire and motivate women of all ages to reach their dreams and empower them to make a difference in the lives of others."
I recently had the opportunity to work with Independent Designer Katie DeVito to make a special mother's living locket. To start, I chose the medium sized silver locket with crystals and the 18" silver ball station chain. I love silver and the little crystals on the locket really make it pop.
The fun part was choosing charms to go inside my locket. There are so many to choose from: hobbies, family, travel, faith, vintage, sports and more. It took me a while to decide, but I finally settled on a birthstone for each of my kids, a love to read book charm, and a heart that says "Mom".
I love the quality of this necklace and the special charms inside.
I can't wait to add other special touches to my necklace as we make new family memories together!
Not only is the jewelry incredible, but it comes in cute take-out style box with a "fortune cookie" that you can nestle your necklace in or store charms or dangles as you change them out.
If you are looking for a personalized gift for a friend or loved one, I definitely recommend Origami Owl! (and if you're not already working with a designer, Katie DeVito is wonderful)
