It's quite the tiring job, really (and I'm pretty sure my bosses aren't nearly appreciative enough).
However, there is nothing in the world that makes a mom as proud as her family and the amount of love that goes into taking care of those children can easily be described as endless. Therefore, what better way to display that than with a beautiful piece of hand stamped jewelry to fully symbolize that devotion?
And that's exactly what you'll find (and much more!) in the custom-made, meaningful jewelry and keepsakes found at Something About Silver.
Specializing in custom hand stamped jewelry, Something About Silver offers a wide selection of keepsake necklaces as well as bracelets, rings and bridal jewelry that are certain to be cherished gifts. As all of their pieces are fabricated by hand in their Florida studio, they not only can create every gorgeous piece you see on their website, but are also more than willing to create a custom piece that is personalized just for you.
The amount of time that goes into making each piece of jewelry special is evident and the finished look is whatever you choose — from classic and simple to elaborate and complex. You can't go wrong!
As I've always wanted a piece of jewelry to symbolize my entire family, I was immediately taken with the Family Tree Necklace and the way that each member could be represented without overwhelming the pendant.
After selecting the months for each of our birthdays, I was surprised and pleased to hear from Something About Silver asking which of their two options in December birthstones would I rather have on my necklace. Talk about customization!
In only a short amount of time, a package from Something About Silver arrived and I couldn't wait to look inside. Right away I was in love with the classic, clean gift box...
...as well as the presentation of the piece inside. The printed cloth bag gave just the right "earthy look" accompaniment to the crisp shiny silver of the jewelry inside...
...and, when I pulled it out, I couldn't have been happier that Something About Silver had turned each of my family members into a shining gemstone surrounding our Family Tree, right down to the Little Sister B in that December stone.
I love the way that each of the four stones are crisp, colorful and clear, while the whimsical family heart tree is stamped perfectly, making the overall look simple yet elegant at the same time.
As the Family Tree is a part of Something About Silver's 'Pieces of my Heart' limited edition collection, it was sculpted by hand and cast in fine pewter (which is lead free). While pewter has the same wonderful look and feel as sterling silver, it will not tarnish as quickly, which I appreciate.
At the same time, for someone that is allergic or cannot wear sterling silver, this necklace (or another item from the collection) would make a perfect gift. The combination of the excellent craftsmanship and quality of this necklace is superb and the 18" sterling silver plated link chain brings it all together for a product that you or your recipient is sure to enjoy.
Whether you are purchasing an item for yourself, are buying a special birthday, holiday or new baby gift for someone else, or just love hand stamped jewelry as much as I do, Something About Silver has a necklace, bracelet, ring or gift that will match your recipient's taste as well as your budget.
