Powder & Jade {GIVEAWAY}: Beautiful Handcrafted Jewelry with a Personalized Touch

I just love shopping for loved ones during the holiday season. I usually keep a mental note of what everybody likes throughout the year, so I can surprise them when a birthday or holiday comes along. Of course, there are times when I do get stumped and might not know what to give someone. With Christmas right around the corner, some of you may be scrambling to find the perfect gift for that special someone.

Being introduced to the Powder & Jade Esty shop couldn't have come at a better time. I mean who doesn't love jewelry, am I right? This is not just any type of jewelry, either. Every item from Powder & Jade is handcrafted and personalized for the recipient.

Powder & Jade was created in 2013 by a husband and wife team, Auri and Andrew Penner. Auri had started making jewelry as a hobby while in college and since they both knew they wanted to start their own business someday, they decided to try selling Auri's jewelry creations on Etsy. Almost four years late, they shop, Powder & Jade is now a beloved shop featured simple, feminine designs packaged with personalized note messages.

Each piece of jewelry from the Powder & Jade shop offers a graceful, feminine style, perfect for those who love wearing jewelry, but prefer something with a more modest flair.

I received this beautiful necklace that's perfect for mothers:

Isn't it beautiful?!

Although yellow gold is nice, I much prefer a silver tone. As soon as I saw this necklace in their Etsy store, I knew I wanted it. Although, it was originally advertised in gold, I was able to create a custom order to have it made in sterling silver. Upon ordering, I requested the letter that I wanted on the tag, as well as the birthstone charm. These are actually made with Swarovski crystals.

Not only is this the perfect selection for mothers, but also grandmothers! Know someone who just had a baby? This would make a wonderful gift for a new mom to show her how much she is loved and appreciated.

I always feel it's the little details that make things extra special. Customization doesn't just stop with each piece of handcrafted jewelry. Powder & Jade wants your gift to be perfect. Every product comes on a card that can be personalized with any message you'd like.

When they had asked me what I would like on the card, I knew without hesitation what I wanted it to say. I've always enjoyed making photo gifts for my family. After creating my husband's Father's Day photo mug, I realized how beautiful it came out and wanted one of my own, with photos of my son and I. I had asked my husband to find a special quote or saying for the mug to make it extra special. He soon found the following quote:

"Sons are the anchors of a mother's life"

I loved it so much and now every time I drink my coffee or tea in that mug, I see that saying and all the precious pictures of my son and I throughout the years–it just warms my heart. That's exactly what I wanted written on the card:

Every little detail is thought of, including the gift box that arrived with a bow and tag that had my name on it.


I fell in love with the necklace when I opened the box. It's dainty, elegant, and absolutely beautiful! I even got a little emotional. I'm not ashamed to admit that I can be a bit sensitive at times, especially when it comes to being a mom.

Upon visiting the Powder & Jade Etsy store, I spotted a few other favorites:

Being a prior Navy family, this is another one that immediately stood out for me:

I have a thing for charm bracelets, so I also thought this one was really nice:

Here's a beautiful one to symbolize your family tree. You can add many birthstones to one chain:

If you prefer something without a birthstone, this one can accommodate plenty of initial charms:

Auri and Andrew Penner also run three additional Etsy Shops:

Whether you are shopping for last minute gifts this holiday season, or know of a birthday or an important event coming up, why not give the gift of jewelry to that special someone? The pieces at Powder & Jade are not only beautiful, but they're also modestly priced. I personally love the fact that they're handmade and can be completely personalized to the unique style of the recipient. There's really nothing like adding those special finishing touches to make your gift one of a kind and something that they'll cherish forever.
