Give Mom a Custom Secret Spinning Message Bracelet from 2 Sisters Handcrafted

love for mom giveawayWelcome to the “For the Love of Mom” Giveaway Hop hosted by Mama’s Baby Cupcakes & Mommy’s Favorite Things!

The theme of this event is great gifts for mothers, and each blog participating has a prize valued at $25+. This hop will run from April 6-20 to give you lots of time before Mother’s Day!

Every year when hubs asks me what I’d like for Mother’s Day, my answer is usually something along the lines of sleeping in and time with my family. But the girls like to have a physical present to give me (and I’m not completely opposed to the idea either!) so he usually helps them pick out a special piece of jewelry. I love one of a kind gifts, and personalized jewelry is always at the top of my list.

This year, I’m loving the designs at 2 Sisters Handcrafted, a proudly Canadian custom jewelry shop named after owner Colleen’s two young daughters. I have to admit I have a soft spot for this shop just based on the name alone. I also have two little girls who are just discovering what it means to be sisters!

This is the personalized triple wrap secret spinning message Emma bracelet that Colleen made for me.

This is exactly the kind of piece I would love to receive for Mother’s Day! I love the boho wrap style bracelet, and silver and leather is so my style. The silver bar is hand stamped with a secret message then wrapped around three strands of premium, naturally dyed, and chemical-free leather. I’m not going to tell you exactly what it says on there (hey, a girl’s gotta keep some secrets!), but I will say it’s the date of our wedding and a line from our wedding vows.

Colleen put on two small pewter word tags as well, hand stamped with my daughters’ initials. I showed this to my girls and explained what each item means, and they love knowing that I’m wearing their names. I feel really special when I wear my Emma bracelet. It symbolizes all the things that are important in my life, especially being a mother.

Each bracelet is fully customizable. You select the length and colour of the leather, the message (up to 37 characters) to be hand stamped on the 6″ x 1/4″ silver bar, the font, details on the personalized word tags, and up to two pewter heart charms. Create your secret message with special names, dates, longitude and latitude coordinates, or a short quote. This is a a perfect way to keep what’s important close to you always, and a perfect gift for Mother’s Day!

I also feel good knowing that every piece is handcrafted in Colleen’s private studio in Barrie, Ontario, Canada using recycled metals and socially responsible, ethically farmed byproduct leather (where the animal is first used for its meat and then for its hide). The leather is dyed with natural vegetable dyes without paraldehyde, and despite not using chemical fixatives, the dye doesn’t rub off onto my skin or clothes, even if it gets a little wet from normal hand washing. (Don’t ruin it by going swimming with it on of course!) The packaging and marketing materials are all recyclable, and even the carbon Colleen uses to fire her solid bronze pieces is made from recycled coconut shell shavings.

2 Sisters Handcrafted is kind of a big deal these days! Colleen’s pieces have been included in swag bags at the 2013 Academy Awards, 2012 Emmies, and 2012 CMA Awards, and her jewelry has also been seen on the hit series The Vampire Diaries. 2 Sisters Handcrafted is committed to giving back too. A portion of all profits is donated to local children’s charities including The Toronto Sick Kids Hospital, partly in thanks for the help her family received when her oldest daughter was seriously ill in 2009. This is the kind of business I want to support!
