8 Petals: A Mother/Daughter Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!


Oh how wonderful! A mother/daughter giveaway! I received a beautiful necklace and Bella received an equally beautiful ring from 8 Petals to review! We were both so excited to receive our pretty fused glass jewelry in the mail! Bella gets so excited to try on jewelry with her mommy (me!) I get just as excited to share my love of jewelry with her. The necklace I received is the Blue and Turquois Abstract Necklace. All of 8 Petals' jewelry is made from fused glass. Each piece is hand made and therefore unique. Blue is my absolute favorite color and I love the way the necklace brings out my eye color! (Bella and I both have blue eyes.) 8 Petals believes that art should be worn everyday! I really believe that the designs of 8 Petals are true artwork!


Bella chose the Blue and Brown Abstract Ring. It is made from scrap pieces of glass. I like that fact that they use scrap pieces to make their rings. 8 Petals does not want to waste the glass, therefore they use every scrap to make something beautiful! Their rings are adjustable and will fit Bella's finger for years to come! Their styles are classic and funky! Mom's and daughters alike will find styles that they love at 8 Petals! 8 Petals also makes beautiful hairpins, belt buckles and earrings! Take a look at all of the pretty pieces and it will be hard to choose just one!

More About 8 Petals:

8 Petals was created by designer Toni Chirico, a passionate self-taught artist who embraces the artistic learning process. Rather than forcing designs, she gently guides her materials to create unique, bright, bold, wearable art with personality. Working exclusively with sustainable materials, the designs celebrate the whimsy and joy of the creative process.

Like art, 8 Petals believes that life is a creative process and that art should be worn everyday.
