You all know I love my bling and can’t get enough of it ever! All my favorite jewelry has special meaning. From my necklace that was made from my late grandfather’s tie clip to the chain I wear around my neck reminding me of my grandmother every day. Jewelry is so much more than just something I wear. It tells a story.
Let me introduce you to Origami Owl. Origami Owl is a line of meaningful jewelry that can be customized with charms to tell one’s personal story. Founded by Bella Weems, Origami Owl’s signature Living Locket line has caught the hearts of women everywhere, and has since expanded the collection to include earrings, bracelets, watches, key chains and land yards. With interchanging options, the jewelry can easily be switched every day or created for any special occasion or holiday.
I love the story of Origami Owl’s young entrepreneur Bella Weems. Bella started the customizable line of jewelry at the age of 14 with $350 she earned from babysitting. She never knew that in just a few short years her hobby creating jewelry with her mother at their kitchen table would lead to an investment from a family friend to open a kiosk in a mall near her hometown of Chandler, Arizona (right down the street from me) and has developed into a multimillion-dollar business. Bella’s Living Lockets are sold at jewelry bar parties by independent sales force of over 40,000 people and has now expanded to Canada.
Bella is also a motivational speaker and when she is not at the corporate headquarters she can be found traveling across the country meeting with Independent Origami Owl Designers and supporting the Force for Good Tour, which provides a monthly opportunity to work with designers and raise awareness for causes the designers are passionate about.
I love this story and am totally digging the jewelry.
Thank you to Origami Owl for my living locket. It is gorgeous and the packaging is adorable.
As you know, I work with a lot of brands but I am very impressed with the quality of my locket. It is beautiful and I am not just saying that because I designed it. There are so many choices to choose from and I wanted my locket to represent my personality! I think it totally does.
You know I love gold so I went with the chunky gold chain and the gold locket with bling around it because it is snarky. Bonus: the locket I chose has the option to engrave, so I did! I engraved it with “snarky” of course. Some of the charms I chose were:
M & B – My initials
Bling Dog bone and Paw – Teddy Brewski is my main man (woof)
Crown – Queen of Snark
Music Note – I bleed Rock n’ Roll
Heart Shaped baseball: I am a fan through and through -SF GIANTS!
Typewriter and “Blog” – Well, I am sure you can figure that one out.
*The charms that don’t fit in the locket come in a little package so you can switch them out depending on your mood. The locket is easy to open with a twist of the base and a switch of the charms and you are ready to rock!
Also, I added a little silver to the mix with an “M” dangle to complete the entire look! Love.
Now, what do you choose to put in your locket?
