***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!
