I recently was given the opportunity to review a personalized necklace from P3 Personalized Jewelry by Melissa Erickson.
Melissa Erickson has her very own Etsy shop where you can purchase your very own personalized necklace. But stay tuned at the end of the blog post for a chance to win your own necklace.
I just loved the necklace that Melissa sent me to review. Isn’t it beautiful? The message “Peace Like a River” holds special meaning in my life. I love to sing this song and I have song it to my three little girls since the day they were born. They can sing the complete song from beginning to end. I just love how the words to this song minister to my soul when the torment of the world we live in presses in on me.
The necklace sent to me to review is gorgeous. Every time I wear the necklace I receive multiple compliments and questions as to where I found such a unique piece. The necklace came to me in a gorgeous bag tied with a ribbon and included the chain, cross charm and bead charm. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package. The chain included in not one of the short chains that creates a choker type necklace. The necklace hangs very nicely without crowding or riding up on your neck. It is a definite compliment to any outfit.
P3 Personalized Jewelry by Melissa Erickson
Jewelry making has been a hobby that I have pursued to varying degrees from the time I was a teen.
In recent years, I found that my jewelry making (along with other hobbies)
was taking a backseat as I focused on my family, two young boys,
and the small preschool that I run from my home.
I was in need of a creative outlet, something that would
allow me to carve out some time that I could call my very own.
I had been thinking about getting back into jewelry making for a
while when I received some great advice. I was told that often the
hardest part of doing a new thing is taking the first step, and that I
should just take one small step to get started. So, I placed a small
order with a jewelry supply company and excitedly waited for it to arrive.
Once it did, I just started playing with the materials and
exploring all of the ideas that had been bouncing around inside my head.
It wasn’t long at all before I was sneaking in little bits of time to go
“play” with my necklaces and soon my boys realized that when they saw mommy
hunched over her work table (aka kitchen counter) she was otherwise occupied for the moment.
I started wearing the personalized necklaces I was making and friends
began to notice and comment on them, asking where I had gotten them.
Before long, I was making them as gifts for friends and taking requests for
friends of friends. The necklaces I make are personalized with messages of
life, love, and faith and now throughout the day words or phrases will pop into my head
and I will grab a pad of paper to jot them down to use on a later piece.
Nothing brings me greater joy than seeing one of my necklaces being worn, or
hearing from a friend or customer what the message on the piece means specifically to them.
I’ve recently set up a Facebook page and an etsy store which is
helping me field requests and orders in a much more organized fashion.
Choosing a name for my business was probably one of the more difficult decisions along the way.
Ultimately, I went with P3 personalized necklaces. P3 carries meaning as it references Proverbs 3:
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
What started as a hobby seems to be growing into a fun little side business,
which is so thrilling and rewarding for me.
