G!veaway!!! What is YOUR Living Locket Story? W!n a G/C to Origami Owl w/ Tarah Hoover

The other day I went to an event at Little Man’s school and was asked by numerous Moms about my necklace. You see, like many Moms, I was sporting an ‘I’m proud to be a Mom-necklace,’ but mine was different than the ones many of the other moms were wearing. My necklace wasn’t just a name plate or circle, instead mine was a locket that told a story; it was a Living Locket from Origami Owl.

If you haven’t heard of Origami Owl then you are missing out. Origami Owl is a fun and unique way to tell your personalized story through charms, lockets and dangles.

Origami Owl’s story starts with a teenager and a dream. The company was founded by 14 year-old Isabella in the fall of 2010. Fueled by a goal to raise enough money to buy a car for her 16th birthday, she started the business with $350 worth of babysitting money and a matched contribution from her parents. She sold her unique line of personalized jewelry at home parties and events and quickly realized that this brand has an energy all its own. People absolutely love creating and wearing personalized jewelry that has meaning and is special to them.
Origami Owl’s success has catapulted since its inception in 2010. Today their signature jewelry collections are available online and through their trained Independent Designers, who sell their products exclusively at home parties and events-just as Isabella did from the very beginning! Their parties are a fun way to bring together a group of friends for a unique, memorable and highly personalized experience.

Independent Origami Owl representative, Tarah Hoover offered me my choice of Living Locket for review and it was so much fun to build.

Step one is choosing the perfect charm(s). I was amazed at the choices and was kind of torn between making a locket for Hubby and I, using his initial and mine or a ‘Mom-locket!’ using the kids birthstones.  The next step once choosing your charms is to choose your locket. You can choose between large or medium lockets in either silver, brush gold, or rose gold. Or, you can add some bling and choose either a gold or silver locket with crystals. Next you choose your chain, then the plate, which is the backing to your locket. The cool thing is that the plate is engraved with a tagline that tells about your locket. Once you have the right plate, then you have the choice of adding fun dangles.

Folks, I am not kidding that your Living Locket is YOUR Living Locket. From start to finish it is your creation and fits your story, life, or personality.

If you are stuck on your design, I suggest checking out the photos on Tarah’s Facebook Page, Heart My Locket to see a huge assortment of ideas, such as the perfect locket for:

  • Dog Lovers
  • Survivors
  • Faith
  • Love
  • Blessed
  • 31 Reps

And of course, Tarah is always able to help you with any inspiration you may need!

After looking through all the photos and going back and forth on my decision, I finally decided on a Mom-Locket! I placed my order and within no time it arrived.

Now, this was so cool; the locket arrived inside a little fortune cookie-looking jewelry case, inside an Origami Owl Chinese food-inspired box. How cute is that???



I opened the fortune cookie to see my necklace and my heart stopped, I just LOVED it! I immediately showed it to the family and my Mother-in-Law who said that it would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift for my Sister-in-law.

Since its arrival my Living Locket has been the first piece of jewelry I put on every single morning. It is very comfortable to wear and I just love how much attention it has received from friends and family members.
