FABULOUS FOR MOM FRIDAY: Cherry Creek Designs {GIVEAWAY}

You've probably heard the famous quote from Coco Chanel - "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off."  The idea behind it is that less is more, and after finding the beautiful jewelry from Cherry Creek Designs, I am in complete agreement.

Designed by Heather Gill, Cherry Creek Designs makes delicate pieces that still make a big statement.  How lovely is the Two Heart Bangle set?


There's such a nice sentiment behind this piece - the two hearts hold the bangles together, and as Heather says, they're not perfect but that's what you love about them.


For a wonderfully unique take on mother's jewelry, you can also get the same hearts personalized on bracelet.


Or on a chain.


I love them!

I also adore the rings in this collection.  The Tiny Signet is so sweet.


You can even stack them.


And the hammered Open Heart is completely charming.


But my favorite pieces from Cherry Creek Designs are the one meant to commemorate something special.  The New Baby Charms set includes two discs with the baby's initials and a date (birth date, Baptism date, etc.) on one side:


And the symbols of your choice on the other:


They make a terrific keepsake.  I can see a bride carrying those as her something old on her wedding day.  And another beautiful piece is the My Little Angel necklace.


Wearing an initial paired with angels' wings will help keep that special someone - whether they're still with you or have passed - close to your heart always.

Not only are Cherry Creek Designs unique, but they're also well-priced - almost everything I've shown here is $30 or less.  Heather calls her line Vintage Modern and I think it's the perfect description - they've got a classic charm to them with a fresh aesthetic.  Hmmm.... Was it also Coco Chanel who said "What's old is new again?"


And Heather has generously offered to give a $25 gift certificate to her shop to one lucky AFOMFT reader!  To enter, visit Cherry Creek Designs and post a comment here telling me what you'll put the credit toward if you win (this is mandatory).  For additional entries:
