A Birthday and Origami Owl

It was my sister-in-law's 50th birthday last weekend and before the event I was thinking of what I could send her that would be unique.  I had decided that it would probably be jewelry as that is fairly cheap to mail. I emailed my sisters to see if we should all go together and buy her something. They had thought this was a good idea.  I had already seen the Origami Owl Jewelry and that is what I thought I would get.  It is unique and very personal.

Origami Owl ~ A living locket

The hardest part of the whole process was figuring out what to put in the locket. There were so many things to pick from..Which locket?  What plate do I use?  What charms would like nice? But this process was made so much easier for me by Stacy Davis who is an Origami Owl Independent Designer.  I had emailed her with some of the items that I thought I would like and she emailed me back pictures of them put together. These pictures had the locket I wanted with different colour of face plates ~ Silver, Gold and Rose plated and a couple of different charms arrangements.  So much easier this way then if I just ordered them and not knowing what they looked like together.
I had found Stacy through her facebook page  and she had sponsored one of Foodie Friends Friday giveaways and I also had won a couple of charms through her page.  So I  knew what this company was about.
So you may ask what is Origami Owl?  It is jewelry that you are able to customize yourself.  They are called living lockets as they tell a story about the person that is wearing it.  As this was for my sister-in-law, we decided that we would go with the family plate, the  letters 5-0, her initial R, birthstone and the flower.  The flower was because in Finland where she is from and lives,  flowers are used with most celebrations , so it seemed perfect.  I hope that she likes it as she hasn't received it yet.  I loved it and think this is a perfect gift for anyone and for any occasion.  
If you want more information about this jewelry, check out Stacy's Facebook and Website.  She is most willing to help you with anything you need.
