For today, I have a very cute necklace made by Carmella's Jewelry! This lady has some talent when it comes to creating pretty and dainty jewelry, with each piece personalized in some special, neat way. When I first discovered her Etsy shop, I spent the good part of an hour exploring, and looking at all the pictures she has of each piece (I love jewelry with personal/unique touches!)
And what I thought was super cool was that Carmella created a new piece to add to her shop, and then gave it to me to review for this post!! How sweet is that?!?! What did she make, you ask? A beautiful Round Photo Charm Necklace!
The Round Photo Charm Necklace is very well made and has a very neat unique feel to it. The etchings around the necklace add an antique/elegant feel to it that really makes Carmella's jewelry stand out, in my opinion. The sterling silver chain that it comes with is thick (though not too thick!) and strong, which I really appreciated -- too often, I purchase a necklace that comes with a chain so thin, it's easily broken.
And, of course, the biggest plus about this necklace is that it can be personalized! How cool is that, to have whatever picture you'd like put in the middle?? And it's glossed over afterwords, so no fear of it ever falling out! (Oh, and do you see that I chose a picture of my parents to stick in the middle? Handsome couple, don'tcha think?? :-P)
True, the picture is small--the whole charm is about the size of a nickle--but it's honestly much bigger then I thought it would be. And it's not blurry at all--I can see my parents clearly. All in all, Carmella made a very pretty, personalized jewelry that is sure to last a while and totally thrill the person it's made for. (My mom sure loves it! ;-)
If you like handmade, personalized jewelry, there's no need to hunt around town and waste money in gas -- visit Carmella's Etsy shop! I could spend hours exploring that website! Oh, and other ways to stay up-to-date on Carmella's new jewelry or any sales she might have going on in the future is to follow her on Twitter, like her Facebook page, or follow her blog! (On her blog she talks about how she makes the jewelry, too, which is SO cool! And posts pictures!)
