I have something new.
I have always wanted a custom “Mom” necklace, but I have never liked what I saw out there. Until I found Kristen’s Custom Creations on Twitter (of all places)!
She has loads of awesome styles, or if you are picky (like me) you can create your own custom combination.
I have always loved jewelry and have been making jewelry as a hobby for many years. When I had my son I wanted something really unique and after a lot of practice and prototypes I created a simple necklace with my kiddos name on one disc and proud mama on the other disc. I started giving similar necklaces as gifts to friends and family and from there started receiving requests, my hobby turned into a little business!
You have the cutest phrases on your charms. How do you come up with them?
Many of my phrases come from my son, for example we often go back and forth saying “I Love You More” and “I Love You To The Moon And Back”, when a cool phrase pops in my head I jot it down in my sketch pad and eventually it just may become a new necklace design.
What are your most favorite creations?
My favorite pieces are the Triple Grande Hammered Initial necklace, “I Love You More Than All The Stars In The Sky” and the “I Love You To The Moon And Back” with Will’s name disc.
What is the funniest custom order you have received?
What inspires you?
Each month Kristen selects a charity to design a specific necklace for and gives a portion of the proceeds for each necklace sold. To see more about her current charity selection go here.
Have you heard of the “Love Tank?”
When it’s full you are skipping around the daises with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.
Hot Hubby told me last week he was going to fill my love tank.
I especially love that he didn’t know what to do with the box wrapping ribbon so he just tied it on the bag!
Eli and Cora Jane love to throw stuff away in the trash and recycling.
But they could never remember which one was which.
I channeled my high school cheerleading days and used a Sharpie to write a “T” for Trash and “R” for recycling on the bins.
Now, I don’t have to get up every time they throw something out to make sure it’s in the right bin… ummm… I mean… Eli and Cora Jane are really learning their letters!!!
