Lisa Leonard Designs Review

I know that Valentine's Day is already here and I hope your loves get you something extra nice. Now the next big holiday to look forward to is Mother's Day! Although it might be a tad bit early, it's never to early to find a great gift. And if you find it difficult to find a present that will accurately show how much you love and appreciate the Mom in your life, how about getting her something just as unique as she is? Lisa Leonard Designs is one of my favourite new site specializing in personalized jewelry.

Lisa's love for creating jewelry started at a young age, with her designing when she was just in high school. When she had her first child, she wanted what most moms quit her job and open a small business in which she could stay at home to be there for her kids. What Lisa didn't realize at the time was just how big her small business would actually become! Her designs have become quite popular! What I find most amazing is that Lisa has no actual formal classes or training in jewelry making, she just decided to take the leap and follow her heart and this is quite inspiring!

Lisa has many great things in her shop like necklaces, earrings, bracelets and so much more! She has received such great press and has been featured in numerous of blogs! There are always many great giveaways going on featuring her products and I know the response to her work is tremendous. That's why I was so honoured that I had the opportunity to do a review for her. And of course dear readers a giveaway too! But you will have to be patient and wait for it!

My Review:

Lisa was so kind to send me a beautiful piece from her Custom Collection. This collection is made up of beautiful necklaces that are customized with either names or initials. I was sent the Petite Family Crest Necklace that was personalized with an "N" for Nicole. Usually you would put your initial of your last name (hence the family crest) but I wanted to do my first initial instead.

Lisa was such a pleasure to work with and I was very happy with my Lisa Leonard Designs experience. It didn't take a long time for my necklace to ship even though she had to handstamp my necklace, which was a good thing because I was itching to get my fingers on it.
When it arrived I was extremely pleased with the presentation. The box that stored the necklace was nestled on a bed of paper confetti housed in a much larger box. This was a great reflection of her logo which is a bird. The smaller box that contained the necklace was then wrapped with green ribbon.

When I opened up the box I fell in love! I had to wear it right away and I just loved how it felt on my neck. The stamping was well defined and could be easily seen from a distance and the lovely pearl glowed on the necklace. I had this strung on a 16 inch chain and while the photos look like one of those chunky ball chains that I hate, don't be fooled because the chain is quite delicate and very shiny! I guess the closeup made the chain look like the dreaded chunky ball chain but I can assure you that it's not!

I love love this necklace so much! I love how the silver disc is not too large that it is overpowering, but not too small so that it will get lost or not noticed. I also like the small little pearl and how it is an elegant little touch to the necklace. I have gotten many great compliments from people about this necklace and just how beautiful it is.
