Alli’s Originals – Personalized Jewelry and Gifts (Giveaway)

by Lolli

Lolli here…

I love how jewelry adds variety, color, character and a little bit of your own personality to your clothes. I have to admit – necklaces are my jewelry of choice. A necklace can turn an every-day, boring outfit into something that is stand-out stylish.

I hate to even venture into the topic of fashion, as fashion sense is something in which I am truly lacking, but I appreciate good fashion when I see it….and I like to spice up my Mom wardrobe as much as I can.

When I visited Alli’s Originals for the first time, I fell in love with her designs. As I scrolled through pages and pages of necklaces, rings, bracelets, keychains, and so much more, I kept finding new designs that I loved even more than the last. I finally settled on a favorite – “Mini Tags”, which is part of the Princess Charming Collection. The Mini Tags necklace includes 5 silver mini tags and a small Swarovski crystal heart or cube. I love finding jewelry that I can customize to remind me of my kids….but since I have five of them, finding jewelry that can accommodate all 5 of their names is often tough. I fell in love with Mini Tags because I could include their initials on each of the 5 small silver tags.

My customized necklace arrived super fast, and I was thrilled to open the package to find a few extra treats (if you know me at all, you know I LOVE candy!). How fun is this bag (it was as customized and fun as the necklace itself)!

Alli did a beautiful job with my necklace and I have enjoyed wearing it every day this week.

Alli also included a wonderful key ring with charms…it was if she knew exactly what I’d like!

About Alli’s Originals

Alli is a 35 year old stay at home Mom (Mompreneur) who began making jewelry as a hobby over 9 years ago. She began with beaded projects, key chains & wire work. After a few years of jewelry design, she began teaching courses in jewelry making and hosting jewelry making Birthday parties. After years of designing jewelry, Alli began taking courses in silversmithing and lost wax casting. Alli’s Collection has expanded over the last couple of years and now includes hand stamped pendants and charms, hand cut pendants and unique casted charms that are only available exclusively through Alli’s Originals.

Her attention to detail, her obvious eye for beauty, and her talent as a designer shines on her website and in each of her products. I will definitely be ordering from her shop again. She has so many things that are perfect for gifts (heck, I think I’ll just buy something else for myself) and her prices are amazing for handmade, custom silver jewelry.

Enter to win

Alli is giving away a $50 gift certificate to her store. This will come in handy during the holiday season when you are looking for the perfect gift for your special someone.

I think this year Christmas will be all about the kids – the fur kids.
So new dog name tags would be wonderful!
