I’ve put off getting a “Mommy Necklace” for a while–love the idea, but its so committal to me. I’m still thinking I’m not “done” (though DH claims he’s through) so I’d hate to get a necklace with one charm that has both boys names. I’d never wear it after #3 is born.
Then I found Suzanne Myers, a jewelry designer who hand-creates personalized charms. This truly unique Name Charm Necklace is casually stunning. Its grabbing compliments in mommy & me, the gym, at preschool, even the grocery store. Grandparents want one, moms want one, and the kids love to play with them. I’ve worn it daily with my “Mommy Costume”: layered t’s. Its replaced my string of pearls when I wear sweaters and jeans. And I’m finding I WANT to wear it with everything. After my engagement ring, of course, its the first piece of jewelry I put on each day.
The scoop: You get a choice of 2 silver chains–just like the charms, these are hand-oxidized chains, not necklaces you’d typically find at the mall jewelry store. The clasp is so cool. Again handmade, its an “S” shape and it becomes a positive attention getter when the chain turns–people aren’t reaching over to help me turn it, they’re reaching to inspect it.
The charms: Of course, this is the highlight. You picked your kids’ names, so you must love them. Its only natural to want to keep them close. They remind me of thin thumb-print shaped shells. Scooped like a spoon with your child’s name hand-stamped inside. Each “shell” has a different pattern to it, in my case dots on Carson’s, dashes on Wesley’s. You can order up to 3 charms and each charm is hand- cut, oxidized, stamped, pollished–no two will be alike. The necklace is finished with a stone of your chosing. And additional charms are available.
Of course, nothing’s as great as knowing you’ll get fantastic Customer Service, and Suzanne has been a pleasure to work with. She’ll work with you to make sure that you get the necklace you want, customizations are available for an extra fee. Even before paying, you’ll e-mail with Suzanne and plan your necklace, then she’ll send you your invoice. So you’ll know you’ll love it!
