Hand stamped jewelry is very "in" right now. Because of my love for all things personalized, hand stamped jewelry tops my list of fantastic things. Each pendant, whether on a necklace or some other piece has the ability to be perfectly tailored to the person receiving it. I love gifts that are unique and meaningful. My favorite place for jewelry that rocks the handmade market is Emilina Ballerina.

I have two necklaces from the Emilina Ballerina shop. Well, I have one and my husband has one. My necklace is one of the incredibly unique Bubble Charm Necklaces. I got it just before Halloween and it says "Witchy" on one side. The other side of the bubble has an interesting design that goes with the overall style of the necklace so well. I love having such a funky piece of jewelry that is still dainty enough for me to feel comfortable wearing. This is another of the Bubble Charm Necklaces that I adore.

My newest score from Emilina Ballerina was a necklace for my husband. The hand stamped pendant on a suede necklace is perfect for him. I love the rugged look of the initials (ours and our children's) and the spiral was my custom request. Susan, the crafty, creative and super talented mastermind behind everything at Emilina Ballerina, took my requests and suggestions and created exactly what was in my mind. When I got the necklace it was even better in person. My husband loves it. The suede was my idea because I like that look on a man but, Susan can put any of the pendants on the other chains she carries.

There are plenty of pre-made designs to choose from. You'll find fantastic gifts for men and women at Emilina Ballerina.

I loved working with Susan to design my husband's gift. Her dedication to making sure customers are satisfied is obvious and her skill at the art she creates is apparent when browsing through the shop and once you receive your jewelry. My husband was pleasantly surprised and, with his critical eye, gave the hand stamped necklace his definite approval. I'm also loving that this piece can absolutely have more initials added to it as we add to our family. Something like this would be a great gift for a new dad or mom.

I'm so excited to be doing another giveaway from Emilina Ballerina! The winner will get to work with Susan to create a custom hand stamped piece of their own!
