There Really Is Something About Silver (Review and Giveaway)

Congrats to mframe!
Ahoy-hoy!  I’m in looooooooove, can I tell you?  Something About Silver sent me a very special package last week, the Near My Heart hand stamped silver pendant necklace.  And that’s just where it’s been hanging out since it’s arrival – right near my heart – because I haven’t taken it off.
The presentation was lovely, to start.  A linen bag with antiqued looking logo held my Near My Heart necklace, complete with pendants signifying my most near and dear – my husband, son, and my two dogs, too.  I’ve really wanted something to capture my love for all of them and this is just perfect; now they are always with me, wherever I go.  What a perfect holiday present this would make!  Hand stamped silver customize-able pendants crafted from fine silver, delicate and feminine while also sturdy enough for daily wear.

It was a tough choice for me.  I loved the Family Tree necklace, the vintage style wax seal bracelet and I have a thing for antique keys, so I loved the Heirloom Mother’s necklace as well.  In the end, I opted for the Near My Heart because I love the sound of a little jewelry tickling as I move (who doesn’t?) and I felt that necklace was more practical for me right now, because I’m constantly writing, typing, washing dishes and carrying a squirming 25 lb toddler.

It goes without saying that Something About Silver specializes in creating custom pieces, so contact them with your request and they’ll do what they can to make your dream come true!  They have a variety of stamps and fonts as well as a lovely selection of charm add on separates so you can dress up your necklace.  I choose two gemstone drop beads, as you can probably see, in Peridot (my husband’s birthstone, as well as my own) and Topaz/Citrine (Jack’s birthstone).  Their Swarovski bezel gemstones are very popular but I just love the elegant drop shape.  And I specially requested paw print stamps on my round disks in addition to my dog’s names, for a little something extra.  I just love the result, don’t you?  The Near My Heart necklace retails around $68.95, plus custom items added.
