Review and #Giveaway - Beautiful Hand Stamped Jewelry

Mother's Day is right around the corner and I've already received a wonderful mother's day gift to review from Joseph Allen Designs and even better, he's offered a giveaway for one lucky reader of a $50 gift certificate for his Hand Stamped Jewelry.

The hardest part of this review was trying to decide which of the beautiful pieces I wanted to order - I knew I wanted something to represent my family and with three kids, this looked like a fun option:

or this really sweet doorway to my heart:

and should I go with the Unique look above or the hammered look below

you really need to check out all of the options to get the scope of what is possible, so after much deliberation, I decided on the inscription Heather + Wayne = Robyn Liam Erik and Joseph added each of our birthstones! This piece is part of the Unique Hand Stamped Necklaces collection

This is definitely a fabulous keepsake piece and I've been wearing it every day since it arrived!  I've gotten so many compliments on it too!  The chain has been sturdy enough for Erik to yank on a few times and my only problem with the whole thing is that the clasp is as fine as the chain so I sometimes have a little trouble focusing my old decrepit eyes on it...

I wish I'd taken a picture of the box it came in for you - all wrapped up in a beautiful ribbon, but you'll have to take my word for it, because Robyn claimed the ribbon!
