Hey y’all! I’m back with Day 6 of Tickle Her Pink—I hope you’ve found some great gift ideas for Valentine’s Day and I encourage you all to enter all of the great giveaways (there’s a link list in my sidebar for easy access).

I’ve mentioned in previous posts my love of jewelry, I especially love finding unique custom jewelry that has is personal and special. When I decided to host a Valentine’s Day gift guide I knew that I wanted to include jewelry, because well it just wouldn’t have been a very good gift guide without bling! So when I was approached by Magpie Designz to do a review and giveaway it was the perfect fit.

For those of you not familiar with Magpie Designz let me give you the rundown on what they are all about. Magpie Designz is an online jewelry store of sorts, though honestly they are so much more. With necklaces, earrings, bracelets, pins and so much more available you will definietly be able to find something (or 2 or 3 somethings) that you love. Here’s a little background on Magpie Designz from their website.

Magpie Designz began in 2008 when I desperately needed a creative outlet to express myself. I have made jewelry ever since I can remember but I wanted to make something that was unique and personal. Along came my personalized jewelry line which has now taken over my life, in a good way of course! I LOVE designing jewelry to compliment anyone, especially moms. I am not a mom myself, however I adore my nieces and nephews like they're my own. It's not like we need any more help bragging about our loved ones, but just in case, my jewelry will give you plenty of bragging practice!

I received the To The Moon and Back necklace from Magpie Designz to review. I chose this necklace because of the saying inscribed on it--“To the Moon and Back”, that’s what I say to my kids when they ask me how much I love them, so this necklace was absolutely perfect for me. I love the worn, weathered look of this necklace and the freshwater pearl hanging from the middle (which represents the moon) is a wonderful touch. Magpie Designz has so many unique pieces of jewelry in their collection and the majority of it can be customized which makes Magpie Designz a great idea for a gift this Valentines Day!
