I’ve loved the nameplate necklace idea ever since seeing it made popular by Carrie Bradshaw on my fave series of all time, Sex and the City, wearing her “Carrie” name around her neck.
I’ve wanted to get my own for a long time, but didn’t exactly want my first name for one reason or another. So recently I saw a local stylist in town (thanks Melanie for passing along this info!) with her own cute personalized gold wired necklace on and just had to know where she got it. She thankfully spilled the beans that she got it made off of Etsy.com (I mean is there anything you can’t find off this website??) from an artist WireNameMike who makes 14kt gold filled necklaces with whatever name you want for only $29.99. Okay, do I sound like an infomercial yet or what?? Ha!
Since I haven’t been real jazzed about wearing my actual name around my neck, I decided to incorporate all 3 of my little angels into one word to wear around with me. So I took the first two letters of each child’s first name, and put them together into my own little word… JaWaVi, which actually rolls off the tongue nicely!
