I was in awe when I received 3 family tree necklaces to review for Rachael of GoldfishInspirations. I have a huge big family there is me, my husband Josh, then my 5 kids Brian, Michael, Joshua, Buggy (Elizabeth) and finally Sarah. It's extremely hard to find a nice birthstone setting for 5 kids, on top of being costly. I was ecstatic when Rachael sent these to me. I am a very simple mom and most settings for 5 are too ornate or cost way to much. At GoldfishInspirations they are as low as $25! that's awesome!
Each necklace was packaged in a cute little gift bag, wrapped in tissue paper and finally sealed in a small zipper bag with a sticker that read Shower Me! GoldfishInspirations
First necklace is a family tree, a very simple design a sterling sliver tree with a bead of each birth year hanging from the branches. I love this one because it can be paired with almost everything it's not an over the top piece and yet nice enough to be worn out to a nice dinner.
The second is a beautiful, gorgeous mother owl and nest with pearl eggs for each child. The nest is copper with the eggs nicely placed in center and mother off to the side. I love this piece I wear it to work and have people asking me where I found such a nice necklace. I like that this is another nice piece that can be worn with everything and anything. I love that it can also be just a piece and not a mothers necklace, you could buy if you loved owls or love something different this is totally new and different from anything I have seen.
My favorite is the mother owl with the color stones, I love this one! I was super excited to start wearing and showing it off because I was proud to have a piece to show that YEP I have 5 kids & proud of it! The stones are the birth months of each child so you have July (red), Aug(green), April(white), Dec(blue) and Feb(purple). I love how it pops its a nice piece with bold color yet subtle because the nest tones it down. This is also another piece that you could wear with everything the nest itself is about an inch in size, you would think its a heavy piece but its not that heavy at all maybe the weight of a quarter.
Each piece that Rachael has made is totally gorgeous, I am very pleased to own a one of a kind treasure from her shop.GoldfishInspirations . On top of the necklaces Rachael is a very talented women she also has useful things, like cupcake washcloths, and many other designs of birthstones necklaces. Things in Rachael's store Goldfish Inspirations are priced from $8 to $25, well worth the price. All necklaces of course came with a sterling sliver chain and each has a cute heart by the clasp that reads "Made with Love". The chain is a silver 18" chain, you pick your wire and bird (silver or copper) and then choose the number and color of your eggs to personally fit the children that they represent, and Rachael will create a one of a kind gift. There is no additional charge for up to 10 eggs! after that .50 cents each egg.
