Charitable Creations {review + giveaway}






Absolutely beautiful. Do you have yourself a piece of handstamped jewelry? NO? Well stop on by Charitable Creations and have yourself a look!


It doesn't stop at gorgeous jewelry either. Shelley, the owner of this inspiring shop donates 10% of each sale to the buyer's charity of choice (of course as long as its moral and ethical). Once you meet her, you can tell that she is good down to the bone. The gal just likes to help people and make them smile, and so this job combined doing the two things she loves!



Shopping for a cause -- I like it! Not only does she design beautiful necklaces, but you can find hammered copper bracelets, Twilight-inspired jewelry, tags for your puppy, and even gifts for the guy in your life (a monogram golf ball marker!!). She makes it pretty easy to pick out your favorite (or ten). It's truly a treat to shop around.

The beautiful necklace she designed for me is not only gorgeous, but extremely sturdy (withstands the two little necklace grabbers in my life). I'm in love with anything monogrammed, so this is absolutely stunning, don't you think?

And you read that right: she designed for me. Shelley is a joy to work with, completely willing to customize designs or come up with something especially for you! Think wedding gifts, graduation, Mother's Day, Father's Day, or for those wonderful Grandmas and Grandpas. Sky's the limit! And if you want even more options, check out her main shop!


Are you in love yet? This won't surprise you, but Shelley has offered a very special giveaway for the wonderful readers of The Ivy Twines! Your choice: a beautiful monogrammed necklace OR a $20 gift certificate for Charitable Creations!




To qualify: Simply check out Charitable Creations on etsy or her online store, and drool over all the beautiful jewelry she has to offer! Leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite item!
