Brag About It Jewelry - Review and Giveaway

Giveaway open to Canada and U.S.

Brag About It Jewelry is handmade by a Canadian mother of two named Melissa, and is hand-stamped using individual stamping tools. She has a large array of gorgeous items: rings, necklaces, bracelets, which can be stamped with your children's names and birthdates, or can be accented by their birthstones.

These pieces are unique and personalized...and I was thrilled to receive two items for review! Melissa let me choose what I wanted to see, and when I offered two different suggestions, she generously sent both.

First, the "Wrapped Around My Heart" Hand-Stamped Sterling Silver Heart Washer (comes on chain):

Wrapped Around My Heart - Hand Stamped Sterling Silver Heart Washer

Next, the "Tiny Brags with Birthstones" necklace, which (I think) is my favourite, just because the birthstones make it that much more unique. (Of course, these aren't my kids names, but since I use pseudonyms for my girls on this blog, I couldn't exactly show you the real pieces! You can trust me that they are exactly as shown in these Etsy shop photos.)

TWO TINY Brags with Birth Stones -  Hand Stamped Sterling Silver Personalized Name Necklace

The chain is very simple, but the detailed pieces absolutely make up for it.

I think it's also important to note that Melissa is super friendly. We have only exchanged Twitter DMs and Etsy convos, but she fills them with lots of "hugs" and "love"...and doesn't even make it seem weird!

And of course, she's offering a giveaway for one lucky This Mom Loves reader! Here's the prize:

THREE TINY Brags with Birth Stones -  Hand Stamped Sterling Silver Personalized Name Necklace

Up for grabs is a necklace with up to 3 tiny brags and birthstones (you could upgrade and pay the difference if you have a larger family!) This prize is worth up to $44, and if my experience is any indicator, I can guarantee tons of compliments and "where did you get that?"s.

To enter, visit Melissa's Brag About It Etsy shop, and come back and leave a comment about an item that catches your eye. (Believe me, it will be hard to choose!)

For additional entries, once the mandatory entry has been completed, leave a separate comment letting me know that:
The contest will close on March 17th at 11:59 p.m. Eastern, after which time a winner will be chosen through random number generation. Good luck...and get ready to Brag About It!

Disclosure: I was provided with the above-named pieces for review purposes. Opinions are, as always, my own.

I absolutely LOVE the necklaces, have since I first saw them, but I'm not much of a necklace wearer. Sad but true. So when I saw the rings I was pleased! I might have to get a ring with my babes' names on it. How cute!
