Odette Alfaro Jewelry Designs for Mothers Day {Giveaway}

odette alfaro

Odette Alfaro Jewelry Designs offers personalized hand-stamped customized jewelry that is hand crafted locally in Vancouver, including rings, bracelets and more.

I recently received her new sterling silver initial necklace with my initial and I absolutely love it. The initial necklace came nicely packaged in a beautiful case that would make a beautiful present.  The font is gorgeous and I love that it looks like a classic piece, I also love that it’s not too big and I can actually wear it without worrying about it being too long and dangling in front of my “grabby” 4-month-old!

A personalized initial necklace would make the best Mother’s Day present! They retail for $75 and they are made of sterling silver. Personalized jewelry pieces are beautiful because they are unique and they have a true meaning.

You can order a personalized initial necklace by visiting her website and taking advantage of an exclusive discount code for my readers. Get $20 off your necklace by mentioning coupon code: “OneSmileyMonkey” when ordering.

Happy Mother’s Day!

    We don’t really do anything to celebrate just yet. My daughter is 19 months old and I am pregnant with our second. My husband bought me a card and flowers last year and we always take my mom out to a restaurant

    My mother and I celebrate by looking for signs from my son that lost his battle to brain tumor cancer. We lean on each other to get through the day because Mother’s Day in 2009 was when my son was diagnosed with it. To all the mothers, enjoy and cherish your day with your child or children.

    My two work that day, so we have dinner out the night before. When they come home from work we usually like to have a quick a table of appetizers and Sunday evenings are board game night at our house. Then we talk about their Grandmothers who they never had a chance to meet, and they present me with their cards full of love and kisses.
