Mother’s Day is almost here, have you shopped yet? I just received a necklace from The Black Star Boutique for review that makes the perfect Mother’s Day gift. The Black Star Boutique, Poetically Symbolic Jewelry Designs Just For You. Five years ago the artist, Tina, wanted to make a handmade gift for her fiance for their first Christmas together. He had shown her how to make a necklace and she loved the idea of creating something that was designed and made by her own hands.
A Year later The Black Star Boutique was born. Since then she has taught herself how to make other designs that capture the beauty of the past, but have a modern twist. She believes that the jewelry we wear tells a story about the one who wears it. Many of her pieces have a hidden message to the wearer that symbolizes something meaningful to the one who bought the item.
The Black Star Boutique baubles, have been seen on Alison Sweeney, Jordin Sparsk, Chaske Spencer, Amanda Seyfried, and Charlotte Milchard. The jewelry Tina creates has meaning to her, the person who buys it and the person who receives it. For instance the Pine Cone Necklace is symbolic of enlightenment. The little pine cone is distressed and weathered to perfection to be a perfect reproduction of a real pine cone. It is set on an antique brass chain that is nickel free and closes with a lobster claw clasp.
I also received a darling little ring. I’ve always wondered if those little flowers were hard or soft. I was thrilled to find it was nice and hard and matches with almost any outfit.
