Being a full-time student and working a 40-hour week — not to mention being a wife — can be a stressful situation for anyone. For Amber Blythe, the hectic lifestyle she lives is the last thing she thinks about when she’s working on her jewelry line, Imprinted Possessions.
Amber Blythe’s line, Imprinted Possessions, includes necklaces, keychains and earrings.
“It’s the highlight of my evening,” says the 26-year-old Dallas-based designer. “With such a busy schedule, it’s nice to have a hobby that brings me joy each and every day.”
Every piece in Blythe’s line is handmade, including the chain and hand-stamped personalization. The only pre-made items are the charms and metal discs, all available in sterling silver, copper or brass. You can even mix the metals in your piece if you want a funkier look, or add a unique stone. Custom orders are possible if you have something particular in mind.
I’ve been on the hunt for simple necklaces for the summer. You know, ones that are subtle that don’t take away from, but complement, my outfit. And something that doesn’t make me feel like I’m carrying a 10-pound weight around my neck. But, most importantly, something that is made of real gold or silver. I’m one of the lucky ones who are allergic to fake metals — that means the second I put on a soon-to-be-tarnished necklace, the incessant itching begins. I don’t look too hot when I’m walking around sporting a red neck.
So, needless to say, I was pretty happy to find out about Isabelle Grace Jewelry – especially the puffy gold heart necklace with an embedded ruby stone.
And guess what? You can enter to win this timeless piece in this week’s Friday giveaway! (The heart pendant is usually sold separately from the chain, but we’re giving away both — it’s like two wins in one!)
