Win customized handstamped jewelry from BLS!

About 3 years ago, I made my favorite New Year’s resolution ever: to wear more jewelry.

I know, it’s an odd resolution. But I liked the thought of promising myself that I would slow down a bit and take the time to put on a piece of jewelry each day instead of just forgetting about it in my jewelry box. It worked, too – my days definitely had a little more sparkle in them and I felt good about taking that one small moment each day to do something just for myself.

It’s amazing what a simple accessory can do for your attitude. 😉

I can’t say I do it every day, but the thought behind that resolution really has stuck with me. And now that my son is out of the jewelry pulling stage (for the most part, anyway) I’m back to wearing my favorite pieces, and some new ones, too!

My current favorite is a recent purchase – a customized, hand-stamped necklace from BLS Jewelry. It looks just like this one, the Family Tree:

I had it made with my name and my husband’s name with our son’s name in the middle. It’s too cute, and I’ve gotten lots of comments on it.  I love that it’s versatile enough to be worn to work or on the weekend with a t-shirt and shorts. Plus, the little tree just feels like “me.”

The jewelry from BLS is handstamped to order, and can be customized to match your vision. Cute charms, birthstone crystals, photos and little lines of inspiration can all be added so you have a truly one-of-a-kind piece. The jewelry is lightweight and casual, the prices are very affordable, and each item is guaranteed to have a personal feel. (I’d SO much rather have a few handmade pieces from a small business than one overpriced, mass produced piece of gold from the mall stores. They just bore me to no end. )

Here are a few samples of what BLS has to offer:


If I were to order again, I think I’d get the Perfect Locket, with one little pearl to symbolize my little boy:

Good news – Amanda, the mama behind BLS, has offered one lucky ABCGP reader a $30 gift certificate to her online shop, to be used on the customized jewelry of your choice!
