Review & Giveaway #1: Belly Charms Mother's Bracelet *CLOSED*


In my search to find the perfect product for my 1st giveaway. I found Sonya, a wonderful WAHM to 2 little boys.
How Belly Charms Started
(From Sonya's Blog)
Belly Charms was the great idea that I came up with after my second son was born. When I was pregnant with my first child, I did not know there were maternity belly rings, so when I had to take out my belly ring, of course, the piercing closed. I got it re-pierced, only to quickly find out I was pregnant again.


An ultrasound tech told me that there were maternity belly rings, but they were just hard to find. Well I went on a search and finally found one. I wore it through my entire pregnancy and right into the delivery room. The nurses all loved it.

After my son was born, I went back to the "regular" steel belly button rings but just did not like them anymore. So I got out my maternity belly ring, cut the PTFE bar to a much shorter length, rethreaded the ball, and took off the "It's a Boy" charm and replaced it with a candy cane......that is when Belly Charms began.

Sonya offers many awesome products. Above is one of the maternity belly rings she has. She also offers handmade pendants, Vital ID bracelets, toe rings, and much more.
She also has started a line of jewelry called the Affirmation & Inspiration line for her sister Sandi. Sandi is fighting for her life against Brain Cancer.
Sonya sent me the most amazing mother's bracelet I have ever seen. I received her Swarovski Pearl Initial Bracelet in Tahitian,Rose, Sterling Silver. If any one has read my blog before I have a love for all things pink & black. It has my 3 boys initials on it and is truly stunning.
It arrived in a beautiful red velvet box. When I opened the box I was amazed by Sonya's work. She was also very fast. She had told me it would be a little bit before she got it finished and sent to me as she was working on Sandi's line. Well she had it finished and sent to me in no time at all. I was shocked. I have not taken my bracelet off since getting it. Everyone that has seen has fallen in love with it.
Buy it: You can buy your own Mother's Initial Bracelet here
Win it: Sonya has been generous enough to offer on of my readers their very own Mother's Initial Bracelet with up to 3 sets of initials on it.($42.99 Value)

Wow, her stuff is gorgeous! My fav I think is the "Swarovski Crystal, Czech Glass & Porcelain Necklace & Bracelet". I love the "hippie" feel it has. Very beautiful work!

Hey Dawn! It's Aimee from your DDC. :)

The bracelets are definitely my favorite, and like you, I'm a pink and black aficionado! If I had to pick a second favorite, I think it'd be the adorable little feet belly charm. Makes me almost want to put my belly ring back in!

I am following you on Twitter now, and I fanned you on Facebook and signed up for your emails. I hope I get a bracelet! They're amazing!

Maxwell Designs said...

Sorry Dawn, this has nothing to do with your giveaway but i wanted to say how strong and awesome you must be at such a young age. I loved reading your blog and getting to know you and your family. I hope you are having an awesome day with your boys!
