Origami Owl.

It is a shop that tells stories with jewelry.

It is fun to review products.  It always comes as a surprise and delight that someone would entrust their product to me...and thinks enough of this little blog to send me a gift to post about.  

I can honestly say this Origami Owl locket is one of the nicest things I've ever received from a shop.  Like, ever.  From picking out the charms to put in the locket, to the packaging, to the quality of the actual pieces--I was blown away!  Besides being beautiful, the necklace means something.  

I chose five charms~ a football and number 7 for Philly (he is the 7th 'Philip Schuyler Smith' in our family:)...a painter's palette and headphones for Niamh, a symbol for infinity (because that's our family 'love' word), and I added a pearl dangle because that is Phil's birthstone.  I chose the 'mama' plate for behind the charms...and now I have a necklace that feels like a little piece of family is always with me:).  

You can see how to build your own necklace by clicking over here.
Also, check out the Origami Owl Facebook page for shop updates and gift ideas!

Seriously loved this necklace.
It even comes with a 'fortune cookie' for safe keeping. 
A cookie to keep your treasure in...
It doesn't get any sweeter than that!

  20. What a beautiful concept! I will have to check out their site. I usually don't wear any jewelry except my wedding ring but this seems like something I would because it would mean something :) I love your idea of chosing something to represent every member of the family so it truly is like having them with you everywhere you go. You are such a beautiful person inside, and out so I love reading your blog. It is always so uplifting. Your hair looks gorgeous! Such a pretty color on you!
