I think we can all agree that when it comes to being a mother, we put the needs and wants of others before us, especially when it comes to treating ourselves!
Mother’s Day is one of my absolute favourite days of the year…not just because my children spoil me like crazy! But because it is a day to celebrate ALL mums, including my own! As a single Mum running a company, creating a new niche market of products and literally trying to “do it all” is challenging, but oh so rewarding!
Us Mums are doing incredible things by raising our beautiful children, running the home, taking on more hours at work, and doing everything in between. Mother’s Day is definitely a day worthy of celebration in every country and culture.
During the building of the My Little Silver collection of girls jewellery, I truly loved creating pieces that girls around Australia and overseas could enjoy. As I started to personally test out the durability and styles of my jewellery, I couldn’t help but soak up the connection it brought between my daughter and me.
My little girl is 6 now, and she absolutely LOVES the fact that she can wear a necklace that is just as beautiful as the one “mama” wears. And the best part is that we can match with 3 of our engravable necklace styles.
It literally is my young beautiful daughter that inspired me to start designing jewellery for kids because I will never forget those words: “I just want a bracelet like Mummy’s”. This was her response when I asked her what she wanted for her 3rd birthday, a big milestone birthday we celebrate in our family.
I was a newly single mother at the time, and I looked at my beautifully crafted Tiffany’s Somerset bracelet someone had generously gifted me (a piece that I rarely take off) and realised that I was going to make sure I added an incredible amount of value to Mums out there. Tiffany quality without the Tiffany price tag. I can do this!
The small capsule range I developed called “Mama + Me” celebrates that first moment that the light bulb went off. It celebrates all the Mums out there that LOVE beautiful quality things that last and want to share, match and gift with their daughter.
I am genuinely proud that all the hard work has paid off, and I am able to keep on expanding my collection of classic jewellery designs.
Our Mama + Me engravable necklaces are a sweet, keepsake gift to spoil yourself, your Mum, and your daughter on Mother’s Day.
I could rave on all day about my jewellery, but instead I want you to see for yourself and see how other mums and their daughters are wearing it.
All our Mama+Me™ necklaces come in children and adult sizes both with adjustable Italian sterling silver chains so it can be worn at different lengths.
Hand finished in 18 karat rose and yellow gold vermeil, the necklaces can be personalised with your or your girl’s initials, or you can simply leave it as is. Either way, our floating necklaces make the perfect Mother’s Day gift! Something special that both you and your daughters will enjoy.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the incredible mums out there!! You are all doing an incredible job raising your children, and you absolutely deserve to treat yourself and feel spoilt on this wonderful day.
