You've got the cutest little…

***WINNER PICKED 2/18 WITH RANDOM.ORG***
***CONGRATULATIONS, Stacey Moore!!!***
She's had a streak of winning (All Because Two People Fell in Love)…
I suggest she buy some lottery tickets ASAP!

her comment: what a cute site!! i would get one done with pictures of my little loves!! thanks so much!!




I'm not the world's most sentimental person. Sure, I love my kids and like to have mementos of them, but most keepsake jewelry is kind of… mommy. And not in a good way. Roo and Jasper will probably grow up feeling neglected because their mom just isn't going to wear 3" buttons emblazoned with their photos. Sorry, kids. Grandma's not about to sacrifice her bling for a cutesy photo sweatshirt, either. I know, we must not love them enough. Poor babies.

Luckily, I stumbled across the coolest baby memento I've seen in a while– BabyFaces custom jewelry. They transform your favorite photo into a charm in sterling silver or 14K white or yellow gold, perfect to wear as a solitaire or to add to your charm bracelet. I've collected vintage charms and charm bracelets for years now, so BabyFaces seemed like a great way to show off my maternal pride. I emailed my photos in (you can also use the upload option on their order form or mail a hard copy) and in a week or so I had these tiny effigies of my childrens' smiling faces:



They turned out even better than I had hoped! Even my husband was impressed and suggested we get them made annually, so I can have a charm bracelet to keep me company when the kids grow up and fly the coop… so much better than a schoolhouse frame on the wall, in my opinion. I love being able to wear my kids without sacrificing my own sense of style. I have a sick desire to get BabyFaces of me and Bob, to put on our cats' collars instead of normal tags. Which reminds me, how adorable are the BabyFaces Pets charms?



I would love to have a kitty charm bracelet, featuring the ones still with us and their fallen comrades. Although that would add up quicker than I can count, so I'll stick to the kids for now. The website has great pictures of charms made from pictures of pet dogs and horses, too.

BabyFaces offers two sizes: standard (about the size of a quarter) and jr (about the size of a dime) and both are available as a traditional pendant with chain or with a swivel lobster claw clasp. (I chose the clasp so I could move the charms around until they find their perfect place. ) All are available in sterling and 14K white and yellow gold, with prices starting at just $69 for the silver jr clasp version. There is also a new option, the BabyFaces Duet, which features two faces (babies, couples, critters…) and would be an awfully thoughtful gift for your Valentine, stateside or deployed…



To enter and win a BabyFaces custom sterling silver photo charm in jr size (a $69 value), please comment on this post and let me know who you would immortalize in precious metal!

Entries will be accepted through February 17th and I'll pick the winner using Random.org. US readers only. Only one entry/comment per person, please.

Make sure you leave an email address in your comment or that you have one accessible on your blog so you can be contacted if you win!

If you prefer not to leave your email, you can also check for your name at Prizey.Fetch, a new site that compiles winners in one convenient place:

  1. Okay, WOW. This is awesome. I would definitely have my baby girl immortalized this way. :)

  2. So hard to choose on kid over the other..lol. I think I would pick our daughter, then we can just tell the baby that we got it before he was born...haha. Anyway, I think my husband would love to have a little keepsake like this with him all the time, as he's away from home most of the time with work and he's always missing the kids so, so much.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I'd love my baby girl's sweet face etched into white gold. And I'm with you on the schoolhouse frames. My MIL has one for each of her five kids displayed proudly in her front room. Not my style.

    ReplyDelete
  4. my younger daughter...but then I'd have to get another myself so
    I could wear her older sister too!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I think I'll immortalize my daughter, Anna. I think that this will be a lot less painful than a tattoo! ;D

  6. I would immortalize my daughter without a doubt. I agree with you on the personal style and not wanting to move about the world wearing giant buttons of her in a soccer uniform! I think that I might even opt to upgrade this if that is possible and pay the difference to have one with my daughter and husband on it. That would be my most valued keepsake.

    ReplyDelete
  7. my youngest daughter Princess G

    ReplyDelete
  8. Of course I would have my daughter! SO beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Oh no doubt-my 3 1/2 yr old who is going on 16!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ok, that would be hard for me to choose, because I can't have ONE kid, and not the others, and I can't afford SIX more, lol. I'd probably get my hubby so he can see that I wear him with love.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh, I "heart" these BIG TIME! I would defintely immortalize my little man...He's growing way t oo fast on me! How neat it would be to have him with me always!

  26. it would be our 2 yr old son we just adopted from foster care!

    ReplyDelete
  27. These are so cute and what a great idea to have one made every year you would have a great reminder of how they change year to year. I had a hard time deciding which son to choose. I decided on my 3 month old my little miracle baby born 10 weeks early and weighing in at 2lbs 4 ozs. Then I would just get one of my 8 year old and one of them together. Here is my Christmas list till they turn 18 LOL

  29. Do you think they could do feet? I would love to do my two kids feet! Or hands! If they can do cats they have to be able to do feet or hands!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is so cool... I would have one made with my daughter's face on it, also I think your idea of the couple's face would be awesome for the next time my husband is deployed.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  45. My husband is in Iraq and we have a 4 month old son. I would get the charm of my son and send it to my husband. I know that he would love having it and having his son so close to him.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love the ones of your kiddos, just perfect!

    I would want those of all three, and maybe the dog too :) I guess if I'd have to pick one, it would be my oldest daughter to go first. I would love love love to win this one!

  59. This is very cool! Definitely my nephew! It would be a great surprise for his Mom for Mother's Day!

    ReplyDelete
  60. What a great idea! But if I won a charm, I would feel obligated to purchase two more (for my other kids). And considering I don't have $140 to spend on charms, I might have to immortalize the cat!

  77. The duet would be perfect for my twins, but since the contest is for one immortalized face, I'd have to decide which baby is my favorite. I'll have to get back to you on that one :)

    It is hard to choose - all six of my kids would look adorable as a charm but I would have to go with my oldest, the only girl. Everything in our house is always about 'the baby' and she hasn't been the baby in a long time. She is so gracious about it all that I would LOVE to get her baby face on a charm.

    ReplyDelete
  142. My "baby" just turned 13. A teenager!!! He's my one and only! Would love to have him "frozen" in time as he continutes to grow and get ready to go off to highschool. I love him as a young man but he'll ALWAYS be my baby.....

    ReplyDelete

    miniloulous(at)yahoo(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  145. I would immortalize our dog Sam. It might seem kind of silly but for so many years Sam was my dad's "sight" when he lost his own due to Macular Degeneration. Sam made my dad feel less helpless and was always there for my dad when he needed a friend so badly and did not want to ask anyone for help. Today Sam lives with us and having him immortalized would be like having my dad always close by and the friend who helped him truly live again.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Thanks - fun! I would get one of my grandfather who passed away last year at the age of 98. I would give it to my grandmother to wear.

    ReplyDelete
  147. i'd get my dog Ziggy made into a key chain, i love this giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  148. I agree that this is so much cooler than the sweatshirts and tote bags with the giant photos on them.

    These charms can actually become a family heirloom someday.
    What an awesome and unexpected way to tastefully immortalize a loved one.
    I would definitely want a charm made of my 9 year old, so I can remeber her at this cute age forever.
    That'll be comforting when she's 16 and demanding the car keys and steals all my combat boots and leather jackets.

  149. I would immortalize my grandmother Dorothy. She passed away on Mothers Day at the age of 97. I miss her so much. She raised me.
