made by sam

I tend to gravitate toward silver. In fact, most of the jewelry that I own is sterling silver ... and, honestly, I pretty much had nothing gold - or even copper/gold-tone - until now. 

I was sent a gorgeous, personalized necklace from Made by Sam.
I love how delicate it is... and how I can wear it with anything.

...these necklaced are completely personalized: I chose the pearl & moonstone to coincide with my birth month: June ... and, the letter C ... for me: Celeste.

Made by Sam is run by sister-team Sammi & Kelly ... and, it seems like they make a pretty amazing team! The shop is full of some many gorgeous pieces! They use high-quality materials: sterling silver, genuine gemstones/pearls/rock crystals/14k gold/etc.

... now, I think I will be buying more gold jewelry items! I love this!

SPECIAL OFFER: If you place an order totaling to $40 or more - and mention "Etsy It Up" @ checkout -- you will receive a pair of these earrings - for Free!

offer is valid at their following shops: Made by Sam, Made by Sam2, & Made by Sam (bridal)

**

And - you have a chance to win a necklace like the one I got! (you pick the letter ... and any 2 "extras" [crystal, stones, etc.] listed here.

these would make fabulous Christmas gifts (get one personalized for each gal on your list) ... perfect for bridesmaids too!

  1. I love the custom initial and pendant and all the combinations have my mind spinning with decisions.

    I have SO many custom pendants with my kids' names - they are my absolute favorite but maybe I need one for me!
