This past Monday, I spotlighted Amy Delson of Amy Delson Jewelry. If you missed my interview with her, click here now to read it -- http://www.inspiredbysavannah.com/2012/12/spotlight-on-mom-amy-delson-of-amy.html. Today, I wanted to share more about her handmade jewelry, as I had the opportunity to review one of her unique pieces myself. In addition, I will be offering one lucky reader a chance to win a necklace from Amy's collection, as well as remind you of the 10% off coupon code, especially for Inspired by Savannah readers to use.
Like I said Monday, I was first introduced to Amy Delson by her husband Daniel. He couldn't stop raving about her handmade jewelry and how he is her biggest fan. Even though she was busy with NY's Fashion Week, she found time to answer my Spotlight on Mom questions and share her story with us. Amy makes each necklace and bracelet she sells by hand, and includes a metal "Made with Love." tag, showing that she puts her heart and soul into each piece, and wants to make it a special and memorable piece of jewelry for the person wearing it. Are you a fan of Project Runway? Then, you may have seen Project Runway All-Star designer Althea Harper compete. Althea loves Amy Delson's jewelry so much, as do I, that she included it in her fall/winter 2012 collection, as well as her upcoming Spring collection 2013 -- https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151419365799428.576794.136407089427&type=1. Amy Delson's jewelry really does add a unique touch to Althea's flirty collection. I can only imagine how Amy feels every time she sees a celebrity step out on the red carpet wearing her handmade pieces.
What made me want to check out her collection and feature her as a Spotlight Mom, is when her husband Daniel spoke about how she can take your old, broken or out-dated jewelry that you have stashed in your jewelry box and turn it into custom reinvented vintage piece that you will fall in love with. I received a jewelry box full of my grandmother's chunky, out-of-style jewelry, but have nothing to wear them with. How great would it be for Amy to turn these sentimental pieces into something unique and fun to wear? By turning your old, vintage pieces into a new, updated one-of-of a kind piece, Amy is showing how she can "reduce, reuse and recycle, all while maintaining the highest standards of taste, glamour and durability."
Or, do you want a one-of-kind original designer piece? Well, leave it Amy to create something custom to fill your desire or to suit your needs - "match your eyes, your signature color, a gown, a favorite stone for healing purposes, etc.
Before leaving the corporate world to become a stay-at-home mom, I would make a point to accessorize my jewelry and handbags to match my outfits. It didn't matter if I was dressing in business wear or casual, I loved how adding a chunky bracelet or flowing necklace would add to the outfit. What woman doesn't like to play dress up? Accessorizing was so much fun. But, once I became a mom, I found that the only times I could pull out my favorite pieces was on date nights with my husband, as my daughters would try to tug or pull off my earrings and dangling necklaces. Now that they are getting older and are not as fascinated with what I have around my neck or wrists, I have been slowly adding some of my favorite vintage pieces back to my outfits when we go out on errands or on the weekend. I don't know about you, but when I stopped wearing jewelry with my outfits, I always felt like something was missing.
When I received the following handmade necklace to review from Amy Delson, I couldn't wait to pair it with my outfits.
Amy offers this two nugget stone & chain design in a variety of colors/types of stones & links/types of metal. She can also create something custom to meet your needs and style. What I loved most about this necklace, beyond how beautiful it looks up close and while wearing, is that it is so versatile. You can wear the necklace long or doubled, and with jeans and a simple top, or with a corporate look or gown.
This is great for those who like to buy pieces that can be worn in a variety of ways and with casual or formal wear. And, like I shared on Monday, "Amy’s pieces celebrate the simultaneous strength and delicate nature of women and the art of expression through adornment. She recognizes that a woman is empowered to reflect her changing moods through her accessories and have fun with jewelry, revealing herself as the true focal point. Amy designs to bring out and crown the artistic, powerful, spiritual, feminine and playful sides of a woman, inspiring her to embrace herself and share that authentic self with the world." This can be seen with the sample I was sent for review, as with the necklace that she will send to one lucky reader (Read on to learn how to enter this giveaway).
So, with the holidays right around the corner, don't make your husband guess what you want for Christmas. I find it is easier to hang my wish list on the refrigerator, along with coupons and coupon codes. And, my husband loves this, as he doesn't have to think about what to get, or have to return things after the holidays as he bought the wrong size or a duplicate of something I had and he didn't know I had. :-) Head on over to Amy's website -- http://www.amydelsonjewelry.com/ -- and check out her collection of unique handmade necklaces and bracelets. I know you will fall in love with them, as I and so many others have. And, don't forget to use coupon code "MOMMY" at checkout to receive 10% off your total order. Act fast, as this coupon code is valid for a limited time. Also, you want to make sure you get your orders in, so she has time to create your one-of-a-kind piece and send to you in time for the holidays. You will feel like a million bucks when you put on a piece from the Amy Delson Jewelry Collection and wear to your upcoming holiday parties and gatherings. :-)
