Welcome to my newest sponsor Origami Owl®. Origami Owl® was founded in 2010 by Isabella Weems at the age of 14. At the time, she had the simple goal of earning enough money to buy a car for her 16th birthday. Today, Origami Owl® proudly partners with thousands of women across the country who run their own Origami Owl® business. At the heart of the company, is the mission to be a force for good, to love, inspire and motivate women of all ages to reach their dreams and empower them to make a difference in the lives of others.

This Origami Owl® business is run by my friend Laurie and her sweet daughter. Here’ what Laurie had to say:

As an Independent Designer, I joined Origami Owl® because I believe in the mission of the company and I love the product! With my daughter, Isabela, as my partner in this business AD(venture), we enjoy creating meaningful pieces of jewelry for our customers. Each piece of Origami Owl® jewelry is as unique as the person wearing it. Individuals can build their Living Lockets™ and Tagged™ Necklaces by selecting from a large variety of custom pieces to help create the perfect representation of their personal style. Some tell stories with words, but we tell stories through jewelry.

Now on to the giveaway.
The giveaway prize is for a large silver locket (about the size of a quarter – see photo below). It has sparkling Swarovski Crystals that have been meticulously embedded into the locket’s border to create a high quality flush setting. This travel-inspired locket comes on an adjustable 16-18” Silver Ball Station Chain and includes nine charms: plane, anchor, suitcase, bike, starfish, aqua accent stones and clear accent stones. { Retails at $81 }.
