I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
I know it may seem a little early to be talking about graduation gifts but it is only a few months away. I am one of those moms that LOVE to plan ahead so I prepare for things way in advance. My youngest is graduating from preschool and she will be doing the whole cap and gown and graduation ceremony thing. We won’t have a big party afterwards but will have the grandparents over for cake, balloons and gifts. I have tried so hard this last year to give better gifts for my girls which are more meaningful. So for this I decided that I wanted to give her some beautiful jewelry but something she could wear any time she wanted and not worry about it. I browsed the Etsy jewelry shop,?Powder & Jade and instantly fell in love with the simple, classic look of their jewelry and at great prices.
The husband and wife team,?Auri and Andrew Penner, have been creating their jewelry since 2013. They have been able to rent a studio space and are now joined by Katie Beglin, who runs the day-to-day operations, and several other amazing employees who help get the handmade jewelry into your hands. Auri currently works on new designs, does photography, and handles business strategy while Andrew starts a shoe company.
Each piece is handmade in their shop in Boulder, CO and carefully packaged. Their pieces are paired with a thoughtful quote of your choice giving your gift a more personalized touch. Their delicate jewelry looks great in pictures in their shop but honestly…it looks even better in person! This Silver Paper Airplane Necklace is PERFECT as a graduation gift. Of course they have other gorgeous necklaces as well for all sorts of occasions throughout the year.
They also own own 3 other Etsy jewelry shops:
- forthemaids.etsy.com (specializing in bridesmaid jewelry)
- pennerpearls.etsy.com (gorgeous pearl jewelry)
- burnthoneyjewelry.etsy.com (bridesmaid jewelry for everyday wear)
I am a really big fan of Etsy shops. They are usually moms and dads starting a side business because they love the product they make and they want extra money for their families. Check out Powder & Jade for graduation, wedding, birthday gifts and more!
