Tell Your Story with Silver and Charms {{& a Giveaway}}

O2 new baby

Happy weekend! Please allow me to introduce you to Tricia Jennings, who helps women create wearable, personal art with Origami Owl.

Origami Owl is a unique way to tell a story with a lovely locket. Tricia has me thinking Easter basket treasures for teen and tweens. These lockets can be personalized to touch a woman's (or a girl's) heart and capture for her any special occasion or sentiment.

Pictured above is a wonderful example of how a locket can be a window into a woman's world, celebrating the life of a new baby girl. As her family grows and interests expand, her locket's design possibilities can also expand by switching out charms for a new set of charms that can then be moved back and forth as desired, all at an affordable price point.

The mission of Origami Owl  is very clear:

To be a force for good;

To love, inspire, and motivate

women of all ages to raech the dreams and empowere them to make

a difference in the lives of others

When you wander into Tricia's online shop, you will be guided through the artistic process to create a unqigue, meaningful locket that will tell your story exactly how you choose to express it.  If you get stuck or you need alittle extra inspiration, Tricia is happy to help you choose the lockets, charms, tags, and dangles that best reflect your heart. .

You will have the opportunity to shop,  host an Online, Catalog, or In-real-life party,  or join the Itty Bitty Pretties Team as a Designer-in-Waiting. 

The Origami Owl party model of creating personalized high quality costume jewelry – on the spot – is the first of its kind among social selling businesses. The home party becomes more than just a social gathering amidst a backdrop of a sale going on – the jewelry creation becomes the focal point of the party as each person begins to create her own locket design.

Specifically, Tricia can offer readers here a fun, social, jewelry buying experience with many affordable lockets and hundreds of charms from which to choose. 

Personalized service from Tricia is available if you would like lockets assembled, packaged as gifts, and shipped directly to the gift recipient.

And here's a wonderful feature dear to my heart: Expandable Mother/Grandmother Charm necklaces that  have space for the extra children that are welcomed into a family that is open to life (no need to 
go buy a new Mommy/Grandmother Necklace when new baby comes along, just add an affordable  $5 charm to existing locket)

Tricia also offers a discount on baby charms for 5th child and beyond and discount on Angel Babies to remember our babies  already in Heaven.

From now until the end of June, 10% of the proceeds of sales will go to the St. Bryce Foundation, a missionary outreach foundation by Colleen Mitchell and her husband. Great things have been happening through this ministry and we're all happy to have another opportunity to support them.


Click through to Tricia's site and take a look around. Come back here and report on our ideas and inspirations. You will be enteredt to win a $ 75 credit towards purchase of Origami Owl through Tricia.

The first person I thought of when I was looking over the site, was a wife of a teacher at our children's school that was just diagnosed with Breast Cancer. We send our children to a small Catholic School and everyone is like family. It would be awesome for the kids to design a special necklace for her. I saw the awareness charm for breast cancer and hope and faith and thought of her. What a great idea for meaningful and personalized gifts!

    I love the living locket .. A birthstone for each kid (and we can add more if a new one comes along !)
    Love the hand stamped tags too!

  3. Julie C says

    This is such a cool idea! I love the idea of “special to me” charms, but I’ve never been big on charm bracelets. Having them contained in the “living locket” is a great idea, and makes for such a pretty focal piece of jewelry. :) I keep finding pieces I love!

  4. Maureen says

    How to decide! I have always wanted a mother’s necklace but never got one as new babies keep coming! I love the idea of being able to add on.

    How lovely!!! I adore how simple the process seems, and how beautiful the pieces are. So many options, it would be hard to choose. I love how the charms could tell almost any story for any woman in any part of life. Since I’m expecting #5 soon, I really like the “living locket” idea.

  7. Lee says

    How lovely!! I would enjoy putting some personal charms in a pretty locket! Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  8. Kristin says

    Loving this idea. Much prettier than Pandora and cost effective too!
    I would love to make a Mom one with a birthstone for my son and the angel baby charms for his three siblings.

  9. Charissa says

    I love the idea of making a living locket that represents our children and our special role as their mothers. So neat!

  10. LPatter says

    so neat! I love the vintage charms and the “bloom” dangles. Have admired this type of necklace on others, but never thought to get one for myself.

  11. says

    I was browsing and so happy to find a just married charm for my baby sister after her June wedding…sniff sniff not so baby anymore…maybe I could find a charm that kind of represents him and one for her…oh the possibilities! !

  12. Sarah says

    Really fun, thanks for sharing!
    I have been looking around for special necklaces to give my two daughters (7&8) when they come to visit their new baby brother (my number 5, due in may) in the hospital and these seem just perfect! I already designed one on your website for my first daughter and I loved the custom options!
    Would love to be entered in the giveaway!

  13. Jen L> says

    I love these! I will make one that incorporates stones for each of my children (not their birthstones – but their favorite colors :)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. says

    These necklaces are gorgeous and I’ve been looking for a way to fit all of my children into one piece of jewelry! (I have seven children) I especially love the rose colored pieces, beautiful!

  15. Corrine says

    Just beautiful! I love the idea of the living locket…I’d include a vintage cross and cameo. So sweet!! I know my daughters would get a kick out of creating their own, too!
    Fun giveaway, Elizabeth.
    Thanks for the chance, Tricia

  16. Kim D. in WI says

    Phenomenal idea for custom jewelry! What fun to make a living locket for everyone on my gift list…Grandma and babysitter and nieces and daughters (and just maybe my own self too). Wow and thanks so much!

  17. Lauri says

    This would make a wonderful gift for my Mom, sister, daughter, daughter-in-law. I love the idea of creating a personalized gift for someone special to me.

  18. Michelle says

    Elizabeth and Tricia, thank you for the giveaway and the proceeds toward St. Bryce Foundation – a truly worthy cause. I enjoyed browsing the Origami Owls site. I don’t wear jewelry myself, but there are some ladies on my gift-giving list that I think would adore these especially with Mother’s Day and Conformations coming up. I like that I can add a touch unique to them within each locket and it can change with them.

  19. says

    Not only are they reasonably priced, I love the fact that each creation is unique and not cookie-cutter. So personal, so beautiful. I’ve already bookmarked this page, definitely a keeper and gift on the horizon for our sweet girls and MORE!!

  20. Kristen says

    Gorgeous! I love the living locket. I’ve wished for a pretty mom necklace for years, but knowing that our family will (God willing) continue to grow, it has never seemed a wise purchase. These, on the other hand, would be perfect. And you can actually fit five children!

  21. Meena R says

    I think this is a great idea. Traditionally lockets have the customary photograph, but seeing something like this is new and innovative. I love how you can personalize your locket with tangible charms and make it your own. Lockets for a cause is also an amazing idea; being able to express what you stand for and who you are through lockets is just wonderful.

  22. Kim F. says

    These are so beautiful. And I love that I can add on, with each addition to our family! Also, they don’t like “cluttered” like other jewelry I’ve seen with birthstones for each child. Thank you for this opportunity, Elizabeth.

  23. Amy says

    I love the Living Locket idea. How nice that you can personalize it for each person. I will be confirmation shopping soon!

  24. says

    TracyE and all the other commenters,
    I am so pleased you like the Lockets and all the different charms you can use to personalize your design. I am having great fun with it, too, I admit! The Lockets are even lovelier in person.
    After the giveaway, the St. Bryce Foundation fundraiser that Elizabeth is hosting continues through June 30th, so even if you don’t win the giveaway, you will still have an opportunity to +BE GOOD + DO GOOD with a donation.

    I would love to be able to personalize such jewelry around my family and faith – each piece is so beautiful! Thank you for the giveaway option!! :)

  26. Wendy says

    Wow! What wonderful jewelry – I am always looking for those gifts that can be personal – without having to make everything! What a great idea.
