Nameplate Necklace

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.



Carrie and her famous nameplate necklace.



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!


My own nameplate necklace with a more delicate spin on the original Carrie!

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!

Up close of my original nameplate, JaWaVi!

I mean, what better way to accessorize my neck than to have a little piece of these 3 cuties with me at all times...



I needed a reason to put this photo up bc I just love how you can see my whole family in 
this one shot! 
JA-ck in the middle, WA-lker dancing in front, and VI-vian being held by her daddy.
And my leg on the side;-)

Wearing names or initials as pieces of jewelry is super popular and there are many moms and non-moms that wear their love in the form bracelets to many types of necklaces.  Maybe I should send Mel B. the name of this necklace artist so that she can put her girls names together since she just had her third baby girl, although it hasn't been released what she named her yet.  I used to be a HUGE Spice Girl fan back in the day!  Congrats to this new celebrity mom!!  

Would you sport your own name or you kids names around your neck??  Do you dig this idea of accessorizing?

I love the necklace! I would sooo wear my name...but "Mikki" is never written on anything spelled correctly...love the family photo. The woman at the Clarins counter shared with me today the Clarisonic. My face felt great after using it but 149$ was kind of steep I thought when I could use a face brush and do the same thing possibly. Still thinking on this one. She told me within two weeks my brown spots on my face would be gone. She only used a milk cleanser with the brush. I don't see how this could work that well. Who knows lol

Mikki, I haven't personally used the Clarisonic but have heard that it does give amazing results!! I find it hard to believe brown spots would be COMPLETELY disappeared within 2 weeks of use (that type of skin issue is really difficult to clear up), but if you buy it, I'd have them back that claim up with a guarantee return policy;-) Let me know if you go for it!

Jenny, I saw a commercial for a Pro X Advanced cleansing system by Olay...26-30$ BIG price difference! And it looks like it has great reviews. I believe that would be my choice. I agree with the brown spots.

I have the Clarasonic! Best investment I've made in awhile! My sister is the counter manager @ Dillard's @ Atlantic Station. If you buy one from her she will give you 2 full size products of your choice FREE! Her name is Kelly Jones Stephens. Go see her! Her passion is not so much makeup (although she LOVES it) but rather skin care! I can tell the biggest difference when I consistently use my Clarasonic! Worth every penny! And another bonus is that you end up using less product b/c iyour pores aren't sucking it all in!

I experimented with looking at your blog on my mobile phone and the design doesnt seem to be right. Might want to check it out on WAP as well as it seems most smartphone layouts are not working with your site.
