How many of you have heard of Origami Owl? Origami Owl, is a custom jewelry company started by a 16 year old girl, who was on a mission to save money to purchase a car. Today, it’s a very successful business, with thousands of independent designers, who host parties or as they like to call them Jewelry Bars.
The idea behind the line, is to allow women to share their stories in a different way. With the see-through lockets, you can add whatever charms you would like to help you share your story.
I personally had never heard of this product until recently. When I was first approached, I looked at it, as another necklace. I had no interest, but after looking at the site, and realizing that you customize the jewelry to fit you, and that you made it your story, I grew interested to learn more.
I was able to make my own Origami Owl necklace to tell my story. My necklace arrived in what I like to call a Chinese take out box. I think this is neat, I am not sure if this has the meaning I see it as. However, I see the box representing Chinese, and with Chinese we know we have fortune cookies. Inside the fortune cookie, we have a fortune. Well, inside this box is our fortune of the life, we have already had.
As I opened the box I found a cute pouch that was like the fortune cookie, and inside was my necklace.
Now let me share with you my story.
er Birthstone. I also had the tag “Blessed” included.
Now let me tell you why: The August Birthstone represents when I became a mom, it’s the month my life changed many years ago, which then leads me to the forever family charm, we will forever be a family no matter what happened in the past, or what may happen in the future. Family to me is a forever things. I love my dog, that says it all, we brought bones into our lives about a year ago, and he has played a huge role in our lives, he is like our son. The June Birthstone represents a lot in my life, my husband and I both have birthdays in June, and we were also married in June. The pink fluffy heart represents how my heart feels, and of course the tag, blessed. That means I am forever blessed.
I will be adding more charms to my locket, I love that the lockets are a window to your story, and that each charm is meant to represent something, whether it’s something big, or something small.
