Ok so my design would be for me. And I would have my favorite love saying "All Because Two People Fell In Love" and that would be Handstamped. Then I would add 2 charms; they would be the birthstone jewels for both of my children.

Hi Kristen! My mother passed away 3 yrs ago at the age of 57. I miss her terribly! I would want to honor her memory and also honor me being a mom. I would design a necklace with "Mom" on the back and her birth date. "Blessed Mom" on the front and two tags with my children's names on them. I would also want their birthstones and my own Mother's birthstone hanging. Every time I would wear the necklace I would remember how blessed I was to have a special mom, how blessed my kids were to have their "Nonnie" and how blessed I am to be their mom.

What a wonderful contest!!!

Michelle -talonsmommy said...

Hand Stamped Lucky Mom With Name Tag Necklace is my favorite. I would have to add two more tags to it for my 2 other kids. ;)

Michelle said...

My daughter left home a few months ago in rebellion. She barely speaks to us. We are lost and don't know what to say or do.

If I won, I would make a necklace for her. It would have her birthstone and would say...to the moon and back.

When she was little, we would "fight" over who loved who more...she would say..I love you to the moon and back.

Nicole said...

I've been a big fan of Kristen's designs for a long time! I think I'd like to design one that had my 3 boys' initials on a disk...maybe with a charm or "mom" rectangle. Great contest! Happy Mother's Day (early). :)

Oh what a fun contest!!! I love being a mom and the beach and the starfish story...where the little boy is walking on the beach and there are thousands of starfish and he is picking them up one by one and throwing them back in the water. His friend says, "there are thousands out here, why are you even bothering to throw them back in the water?" He replies, "because it matters to that one". LOVE that story!!! So my necklace would be a round tag that has "You matter to me" stamped around the edge, a small starfish charm on top of it and then two rectangle charms with my kids' names on them. That would be an amazing necklace and I would wear it all of the time!!!
Both of you rock!!!! Happy early Mother's Day!!!

In my head, it makes total sense and I hope you understand my rambling… I would have a theme of Mothers through Generations….
My family is Dutch so “Grandma” is “Oma” to us.
My 1 yo dd has the blessed honour of having two Omas, being my mom and my Oma, her great-Oma who is 95 years young… Originally, I would keep the bracelet but once my dd is old enough to appreciate it or has her own daughter, I would pass it on to her.
So, my bracelet design would incorporate four generations of women, mothers in our family…
I was thinking maybe one charm per generation - our names and birthdates on each charm perhaps the layered charm. What a great contest and thnx for considering my entry, I love your work!

Heather B. said...

Oh yes, my favourite piece from your Etsy shop is the Lucky Mom charm ... lovely!

kel said...

I love hammered mommy necklaces!!! I wwant one!!

BoufMom9 said...

I just LOVE your beautiful pieces and have thought a lot about what i would want on a necklace. The sad thing is, I would love one of the ones with the kids' names and the charms, but how the heck would you do NINE kids? Then, I thought, what if I had a charm bracelet made and had one made per kid with the bead???? That would be really cute!

Happy Tuesday!

andrea v said...

I would choose the Personalized Hand Stamped Tag Necklace and add a second tag. I would then add my childrens birthstones. Maybe even a third tag for my husband since he's my third child. thanks

They all are sooooo beautiful!

Mrs4444 said...

My friend, Molly, has often admired my "Inspire" necklace by Kristin. So, if I could design one, I think I'd pick one that had "Ryan" and a heart stamp. (Molly is my friend who lost her son Ryan last fall. I think she would love this.)

WhisperingWriter said...

I love your necklaces.

Mine would say something like Crazy Mommy. Because I am. Or something like Mommy Can't Cook. Because I can't.

Bev said...

I would love a custom one that has both of my children's names on it

M said...

I like the tag necklace. I'd have my son's first initial stamped at the bottom.

The Dreamer said...

I would like a large silver disc that says "To the world you may be one person, but to one person you are the world" and then a smalled disc on to with my son's name.

miriama said...

I would work with her to make one for my husband. I would like it to say something personal from me to him. I don't see many of these handstamped for men and that is what I would like.

Charmed said...

Hello, what a great giveaway. I would love this.....
Custom Personalized Hand Stamped Sterling Mommy Brag Necklace.

My email is lucky_charms_8@yahoo.com and I can give you my daughters names and birthstones.

Thanks so much.
Charmed

Andreah said...

I would have the word Blessed on the main disc with two smaller discs with each of my boys names and their birthstones. They were both preemies and I am so blessed that they are healthy.

A Mom's Choice said...

I would love to have a charm that's an awareness ribbon for lupus and my daughters name and birthstone on one.

Spoutin' Out said...

Although they are all so pretty, I love the simple necklace that says Mom and has a pearl hanging in front of it.

Mel Fraase said...

Okay, I had to think and dig around a bit. I'd like a disc with the cute footprints in the middle, then the MIDDLE names of each child around the edge. I'd also like to add a long charm that has their 4 birthstones on it.

Angel said...

I want one of these SOO bad! I'd pick the
Hand Stamped Sterling Silver Mommy Necklace With Sweet Baby Feet
with my children's names. Peter Andrew and Abigail

Cindy Is Crafty said...

I would get the necklace shown in the button with Create on the circle and imagine on the rectangle.

Thanks for sponsoring the giveaway!

tiff snedaker said...

What an awesome giveaway! Love personlized stuff, what a nice touch. You really have some super cute stuff!! I would design something that has my boys names on it: Rowan & Chandler.

Lately it seems like so many things are chaging in my life and my family and really around the world. So I LOVE this saying...it really means a lot to me right know in the middle of everything..

Familes are Forever.

Aik said...

I like something simple, just like the Hand Stamped Love necklace. My design will be for my mum. I want to have a hand stamped necklace with these words : a simple yet meaningful " I love you Mum". I'm not used to express my feelings, so this will a better alternative for me. And the necklace should be adorned with a November birthstone, because my mum's birthday is in the month of November.

Tina12312 said...

Being a mother is a wonderful thing but it is not always easy and sometimes very hard. I would love a tag that says "A Mother's Love Always Endures" that could be personalized with a photo charm and birthstone(s) for the children. Thank you very much!

B said...

I would like a round washer with my 2 son's names stamped, separated by hearts, then a pearl dangling in the middle. I love these necklaces!

A Psych Mommy said...

I'd love to make a necklace that said "wish" on it with a dandelion charm. I used to love making wishes before blowing dandelions as a kid--brings back a lot of fond childhood memories and reminds me of the innocnece of being a child (especially now that I am mom)

Mishel said...

And here I thought that this would be easy! :) Many designs have run through my mind, but the one that stands out the most is one of my favoite Scripture verses. Phil 4:6-7. It talks about how we are not to worry or be anxious, but to allow Jesus to guard our hearts and our minds in Him. As a mom, I lean upon this Scripture a lot!
So, I believe that I would have the Scripture ref. stamped on the back and on the front I would like to have the words "My peace & blessings come from Him alone". And underneath, (if there's room :) ) my children's names of course. With a simple "diamond" hanging on it as well. This would represent my mom, who passed away 3 yrs ago. She is the one who showed me what being a true Christian mom is.

Thank you for doing this!
*I discovered your blog through my sister, Keli @ dreamimaginelive.blogspot.com

Mishel said...

Kristen, can you please go to my blog, whileiamwaiting423.blogspot.com to make sure that I linked my blog to your's correctly? I'm so new at this and I want to make sure I did it all correctly!

Naddez said...

My necklace will be for my mother. It would say, "Just Because...Nana" with her birthstone & crystals embedded in it.

Aisling said...

I would have a necklace saying "Always, Forever, No Matter What" to celebrate 40 years of marriage to my wonderful husband. (This would also make a wonderful gift for a beloved child or grandchild.)

Future Mama said...

I like the mom 2 be one for me (selfish i know) or maybe I'd get one with my husband's name and my name and 2gether 4ever or something like that! I love your stuff!

Lori said...

I would put a word charm saying "First" together with the map coordinates of where my kids were born (both in the same hospital, so it works) then with their birth stones. It would commemorate the first moment with them and the coordinates because even if the hospital were to close or move, it's the point where they were first in the world.

trishden said...

Hi, I would get at Kristen's Etsy shop her Sterling Silver Signature Two Disc Mommy Necklace with Birthstone Crystals. I would have to get the 14mm discs as both my children have 6 letter names and then their birthstone crystals. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Betty said...

I would use a silver snake chain, a silver round disc and have the name of your child on stamped on and in smaller stamps the date he/she was born and weight and have either a pink or blue gem or pearl hanging from it or a little rattle, bottle or baby foot.

This would be great for a new mom or grandma

Celeste said...

I would have a round, silver disked stamped with "Est. 3-12-88" (this is my parents' anniversary)...and then have 2 rectangular, silver tags on each side of this round tag that have my name & my sister name on them. :)

Ann said...

I am stuck--I always read Guess How Much I Love you to my girls and I would have to have I love you to the moon...and back with their names--Camille and Claire. adutt at yahoo dot com

Krystyn said...

Stopping by from the mom reviews.

I would have a middle large charm that says "mommy" and then I would have two smaller ones with my girls' names and two stones (one for each of them) with their birthstones.

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

I would love a big disk with my children's names with a smaller disk that said Blessed.

Or one like that for my mom with all the grands names.

Jamie said...

i would sooo love to win this!!! thanks!

Shana said...

This is so fun!!! Ok, if I were to actually win *fingers crossed* I would like a round disc with the freshwater pearl drop and my kids' names around the edge!!

Krista said...

I've seen other necklaces like this that have a circle, but it's "hollow". I really like those and I would love one that had my son's name on it. Then I'd add a pearl drop to it. ;)

Kati said...

I totally thought I had already entered this, bu I guess not.

I recently received the necklace of my dreams, but if I were to create another.. It would probably say "Nurse" on it.. since that is my passion!

Deborah at Coco Bonbons said...

I love the Mom Custom necklace with the stamped names and birthstones. I would want one for my Mom. I'm the oldest of four and I think she would just love this.

Miko's Girl said...

I would have a circle stamped with "My little peas" with a small fishing pole and a mall horse charm.

Brea's Mommy said...

I would want one disc and one heart. The disc would say my love my life and the heart would say Breanna.
I would also like to have the september birthstone to represent my daughter. This necklace would mean the world to me and I would be thrilled to wear it everyday!

Felicia Eis said...

Mine would say Blessed Mommy with little baby feet and it would have the birthstones of my children

sistersledgekws said...

What would it say? The "E" girls (for Emily and Elizabeth) Would you add a name charm? Their names Special crystal? and birth stones

Tylerpants said...

I like the Personalized Hand Stamped Tag necklace. I'd get my son's name on it as well as his birthstone (amethyst).

CinemaSista said...

I would design one that would say "Evelyn" for my grandmother who passed a couple years ago, and add her birthstone, the Peridot and have this as a necklace. As much as I would want it for myself I would give this to my mother for Mother's Day. =)

I would make one that had 2 round disks, one stamped with my children's names and the smaller one stamped Mommy. On the back of the disk with their names, I would be their birthdays.
