Over the last several years, jewelry that represents motherhood has become increasingly popular. We love this trend, and are always on the hunt for new and interesting pieces.
Fortunes to LiveBy was started by Christine Harding, after losing a meaningful fortune (from a cookie), that had been carried between wallets for over 25 years. She wanted to re-create the fortune in a way that would have longevity and significance. From this thought, an idea was born. Fortunes to Live By is a line of necklaces and keychains, each of which have a locket style pendant. The pendant holds two '??fortunes'? (or sayings), back to back in a window type display. The locket opens so that the fortunes can be removed or added at the owner'??s discretion. Although several '??fortunes'? come with each purchase, there'??s also the possibility to create, print, and personalize fortunes using an online template. This is a great feature, allowing the owner to express her unique thoughts and beliefs with the click of a button.
I was given the locket with '??mom'? fortunes to test out. It includes fortunes such as '??life is what happens when you are busy making other plans'?, and '??you can because you think you can'?; words that are particularly poignant given the journey of motherhood. The locket itself is a statement piece of costume jewelry, in silver tone with a silver link chain (although it'??s also available in graphite). The '??baby bling'? model, which I was sent, is also embellished with five Swarovski crystals on each corner. It'??s definitely a conversation starter - and a way to engage friends and others. People were interested in my locket, and wanted to see what was written within.
Fortunes to Live By pieces are fun and unique, at an affordable price point ($32.00 - $48.00).
