I love jewelry.  I'm especially fond of unique, eye catching pieces. When I saw the work by Joseph Allen Designs, I was instantly enamored.  For me, everything is just the right size, custom made and I love the hand stamped look.  Using my words and stone charms I could choose the perfect necklace, just for me!

There are a lot of different designs available - the circle and oval discs are prominent, but there are rectangles, zig zags, open circles, heart shapes, squares .. and more.  In addition, if you prefer gold, arrangements can be made for a special order.

As you can see in this picture, there are styles for new moms.

And some for us seasoned moms, as well.

These would also work for a new bride by changing the inscriptions to reflect the couples names, and their wedding date.

The motivational designs are a great choice, too.

After a long, thoughtful deliberation, I finally decided on the 1-2-3 Discs Design from the Hammered Collection.

When it arrived, the necklace was packed carefully in a box, with the chain secured, so it wouldn't tangle.  The box was tied with this pretty bow, and placed in a mailer with tissue paper to protect it.  Although I obscured the lettering for privacy, you can see the pearl birthstone charms, the hammered discs, the chain and a spacer bead.  It's just perfect!  I absolutely love it.

I have had the necklace for just over three weeks.  Every time I've worn it, I have received compliments!  It really is a lovely accessory.  It's versatile, too.  I can wear it with daily, with casual outfits, and keep it on if I dress up a little to go out to dinner. The silver has remained bright without any polishing, so it appears it will be easily maintained.

When you shop the site, you'll find something for every budget. ($38 - $136)  Once you decide on a style, you will fill out a form with the stamping instructions, chain choice, and birthstones, if applicable.  With free domestic priority shipping, you'll have your own personalized creation before you know it.

If your family grows, you can have additional writing added to your piece.  There is a frequently asked questions area that addresses concerns of this nature on the website, and there is a contact form available as well.
