Origami Owl Review and Giveaway! Win a $30 Origami Owl GC!

Disclosure: I received Origami Owl product(s) and information to facilitate and host this review by Jacqueline Woods Independent Designer. I received no other compensation for this post and was under no obligation to post a positive review. The opinions contained within, are my own and reflect my experience with the product(s). Your own may be different. 

Once upon a time, not so very long ago (last month) I was given the opportunity to partner with two wonderful ladies, an Origami Owl Independent Designer Mother/Daughter team and was able to work with them on a review+giveaway.

Although Origami Owl has made quite a splash with their entry into the world of Jewelry some of you may be wondering what Origami Owl is. To sum it up Origami Owl is by far one of the most unique and creative Jewelry companies on the market today; their lockets are 100% custom YOU, right down to the so, so cute charms nestled within the locket face.

Origami Owl was founded by, then, 14yr entrepreneur Bella Weems, who is now 16; it started with a dream, to save up enough money to buy a car for her 16th Birthday and turned into a sea of success!

"I have always believed that you can do anything you set your mind to. With a focus in sight, I spent hours hosting jewelry parties instead of hanging out with friends. I wasn't going to let anything keep me from making my dream a reality. And I did, in the form of a white Jeep I call Alice!"

I for one am so glad Bella stuck with her idea and didn't give up on her dream!

The lovely ladies of the independent Designer team, Jacqueline Woods and Rachel Thompson, credited me $50 to use in their Origami Owl shop and the process of creating my own Origami Owl Living Locket began!

Step 1: Select the CHARMS that tell your story or represent things you love
I chose the May and March Birth stones to represent my two Daughter Sophia and Desmond. Jacqueline and Rachel were also surpremely thoughtful and added in a 'Family' charm as well!

Step 2: Choose a LOCKET

I went with the Large Silver Locket. I am after-all just a simple country girl. 

Step 3: Choose a CHAIN

I chose the 16-18" Silver Ball Stationary Chain as I do like a little bit of extra length in my chains. 

Step 4: Add a hand-stamped metal PLATE

While I didn't originally pick out a plate the so, so sweet ladies at the Jacqueline Woods Independent Designer shop included a beautiful "Always" hand-stamped metal plate. 

Step 5: Add a DANGLE
There were so many cute Dangles to choose from and in the end I decided to go with the Guardian Angel Wing.
The end result? A Living Locket that not only reflected the story of MY life but that in doing so turned out to be one of the most stunning pieces of Jewelry I've ever owned!

My Origami Owl Living Locket is now one of my most cherished pieces; isn't it just beautiful?

Another thing I love about the Origami Owl Living Lockets is that you can change your lockets look from day to day. The locket face opens right up and you can take out the charms inside and or add in new ones. New day, new look. Like I mentioned before the Origami Owl Lockets are 100% customizable to your look/mood.

Its no wonder Origami Owl has taken the Jewelry market by storm!
