Last month Anna of AJ’s Collection approached me about making a necklace to honor my kids, Noah and Madison. I was so excited because she also offered to create a necklace for one giveaway winner and we decided it would be the perfect contest to have for Valentine’s Day!
Anna began creating her jewelry as a hobby but her gorgeous designs soon garnered enough attention that she started her business. She makes necklaces, bracelets and even silver guitar picks. Her work is meant to celebrate family and so she stamps dates, names or words of wisdom on the charms. She also has many designs that include birth stones.
I chose a beautiful locket necklace with a single hidden pearl. On the front is a bird and inside are my kids’ names. Not only do I love it but my kids love to see me wear it. You can see my version on the front page of the site but I’m including a picture of the design in this entry, too.
Most of her creations are rendered in sterling silver but she has gold jewelry, too.
You also MUST check out her charm bracelets! I think these make great presents for kids, or even for a new baby, as a special keepsake.
Whether you want to win a necklace for yourself or for a loved one for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day (they have gifts for dads!) I hope you’ll enter the contest. All you need to do to win is go to the boards here and share the story behind your child’s name. We’ll pick one winner at random on Saturday (so you have until midnight PST Friday to enter!) and you will be able to order your gift!
We also encourage you to become a fan on AJ’s Collection’s Facebook page where you can keep up to date on new designs as well as future contests and giveaways. Definitely keep AJ’s Collection on your list for your next gift giving occasion or if you want to gift yourself — you will be so pleased with the results!
