CLOSED{Review & Giveaway} Koolaman Designs

This week I squealed a little bit when the postie dropped off a small parcel at my house. I opened it to find this.


A gorgeous little necklace with two hand stamped Kate pendants from Koolaman Designs. I picked it up and was astounded by the quality.

I was given two hand stamped pendants (not Koolaman Designs ones by the way) from B and the kids for Christmas last year, they were from the states and while the hand stamping was great, the quality in the piece was lacking, but I guess you get what you pay for... and I did, both pendants have now been broken by Ethan...



I can honestly not see this happening with the Koolaman Designs pendants, EVER. I have worn the sample I received this week (only around the house as it is stamped with the names Sarah and Taylor, ;-P ) and Ethan has pulled on it and tried to put it in his mouth and generally put the necklace through the baby/toddler testing with no problems. The pendant is fixed to the jump ring so has that added stability which I think is really important for any jewellery worn by mums. I know that my kids have broken at least three pendants on my various necklaces, so I really don't want that happening again.


I have already told B that I will be getting a pendant for my birthday. I have chosen the Audrey or maybe the Stella... or maybe even the Julia. Oh it is too hard to narrow it down. But I do like the circle pendants as I can have all the kids names on the same one...



I am also planning on getting B some Finn keytags for Christmas this year.
I will also be hinting at him that I would love anything from the Silver Seeds line. I do like the gold pieces (which I mainly wear) but I honestly can't see B parting with that much cash. He is to tight budget concise for that. But I can dream right?
 
If you haven't heard about Koolaman Designs before then here is a little bit about them:

Sisters Lisa O’Keefe and Stacey Clayton decided to team up and start contributing financially to their young families. Starting Koolaman Designs, a hand-stamped jewellery line, was intended to pay the grocery bills but fast-forward four years and the duo have achieved far more than they bargained for.
Celebrity mums such as Danni Minogue and Johanna Griggs agree that Koolaman Designs is a great way to keep a sentimental symbol of their kids at all times. Minogue recommended Koolaman via-Twitter for “new Mummy and Daddy gifts” and Griggs is frequently seen on Better Homes and Gardens wearing her personalised silver pendant. “It’s incredibly special to me and I feel it keeps my family close to me. The network has just about given up on trying to get me to wear any other jewellery as they know I stick to what I love and feel comfortable in,” says Griggs.



And guess what?! I am really excited to be able to give you the opportunity to win a $200 gift voucher from Koolaman Designs for you to purchase a piece for yourself or someone special in your life.

  50. I bought a Koolaman Designs pendant for a friend's 30th in June, and absolutely loved it. I wanted something similar for myself, but couldn't afford the real deal, so I bought a cheap one. I was disappointed as soon as I opened the package. I wear it, but am constantly reminded of the Mia I bought my friend, and how much I wish my own was like it.
