Simply charming

I have to admit, I’m not usually a fan of the photographic jewelry. In fact, I’m not one to change out my jewelry that much anyhow; but somehow the cheesy (sorry if I’m offending anyone!) K-mart-y pieces that are a mini-photo on a string have never appealed to me. The key word here is “usually” because I have recently come across a line of jewelry that has changed my opinion – and I think you’re going to love it.  

It was after getting my family’s photos done at Couture Portraits (in Blakeney) that I was introduced to the “Uncommon Jewelry” pieces by Designs by Stephanie Ann. Sure, I was there to get my holiday cards and photos for the wall – but display them on me? In an edgy, chic piece? Show me more!  

Once the idea was sold on me (and sold by yours truly, simply by looking at the pieces, that is), I had to narrow it down to which piece. Would it be a necklace? A bracelet or ring? So many to choose from …. I ended up going with the Swank Bracelet, a heavy sterling silver bracelet with floating rings and did 3 charms on it. Each are double-sided giving me 6 photos of my 3 girls.  

I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten on this piece already, and it’s a great way to show photos of your family to those  you are just meeting. You may just want to mark down this site for your significant other, because it could make an awesome gift for you (of course!) for Mother’s Day. Or, picture this: photo cuff links or a money clip to return the favor on Father’s Day.
