All mother/daughter relationships are special. I feel very blessed that I have such a close bond with my daughter. Because we are so close, it is difficult for us to be apart. My daughter spends time at her father’s house throughout the month, and while she is away, she misses her mommy and being home with us just as much as we miss her.
I knew that she had been feeling left out when she would have to leave – it is hard for her to leave her brother behind and wonder what we are all doing while she is gone. I wanted to find something that would remind her that we love her, and that I am thinking of her even when she is not with me.
I found Baby Bead Treasures while scouring the internet for something that could help me accomplish my goal. As soon as I saw the personalized Mother/Daughter bracelet sets, I just knew that they would perfect for us.
With all the different choices available, I had a pretty hard time picking my set. I eventually decided on the Natural Amethyst Gemstone Mother/Daughter set – purple is V’s favorite color after all!
I spoke with Deanna (she creates all the jewelry) because I had a ton of questions – how to measure for the best fit, if I could add my sons name onto the mothers bracelet, what their policy was if I measured wrong and the bracelet was either way too big or way too small. Thankfully, she was patient with me, and answered all my questions in great detail.
We decided to turn the mother’s bracelet into a double strand bracelet, placing one name on each strand. She explained to me about the different clasp that would be used to insure the strength of the bracelet. She also helped me pick the perfect sizes based on my measurements, and told me that they offer free sizing no matter what (so if I did measure wrong, it was no big deal –they would fix it!). This is a service that comes with every bracelet ordered.
When the bracelets arrived, I was so excited to open the package. They were wrapped up in a little hexagon box with a beautiful pink bow. Each bracelet was in its own pink drawstring bag, and V was so excited to open hers! She immediately wanted to wear the bracelet, and just kept telling me how much she loved it.
I explained to her that we both had special bracelets, and that her bracelet would help her to remember how much she is loved and thought about all the time. She thought about what I said for a moment, hugged me and told me that she loved me. She then skipped out of the room admiring her new piece of jewelry.
She has not taken it off since. (Unless you count when I forced her to so she could take a bath!)
I was beyond pleased with these bracelets – words cannot even explain it right. They are more beautiful in person than I could have imagined, and what they symbolize for me and my daughter is invaluable.
Deanna was right on with her sizing recommendations, and they both fit perfectly. The amethyst stones are beautiful, and the delicate heart charms that dangle down from each one really make them special (the charms are also baby safe!). The .925 sterling silver letters are just perfect, and I love the sterling silver twists and flower caps that accent the gemstones. The child’s bracelet came with an extender (made of all hearts!) so that she will be able to wear this bracelet for years to come.
I love that this is a bracelet that will grow with my daughter, and that it will be something that she can treasure for many years to come.
