I am SO excited to finally announce the official launch of the Amanda Necklace! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen a sneak peak when it went on preorder late last week. I’ve been working with grace and hudson the last couple weeks to design and create a custom piece inspired by my journey thus far as a blogger. This necklace is incredibly special to me and one of the coolest things I’ve been able to take part in since I started Pardon Muah. It was so kind of designer + creator, Stacy, of g+h to go along with me on this idea and to truly embrace my vision.

Stacy and I first met last year when I shared some of her beautiful designs here on the blog. Then at the beginning of this year, I started working for her part-time as her Director of Marketing and even got to attend a trade show with her in NYC – so much fun! 

Stacy and I have a very similar vision, passion, and even aesthetic. We are both big believers that a job doesn’t have to feel like a “job” and that you can pursue your dreams, finding happiness in your personal journeyStacy’s story is so impressive – she’s a former (very successful) lawyer turned jewelry designer and officially launched grace + hudson online last year. Now she runs her business full-time in Chicago with her pup Cooper. Most of you probably know I too left a full-time job and took on blogging full-time this year after a second cross-country move. It’s a little scary (okay, some days a lot scary lol) but incredibly empowering and amazing to see my dreams starting to come to fruition

Everything Stacy makes (yes, she puts all of the pieces together by hand) are made with love. And a portion of every single purchase goes to a charity chosen bi-yearly. She also guarantees quality and offers lifetime repairs and polishing – which I think is amazing!  And the Amanda Necklace is no different. The chain and clasp are both gold-filled while the two asymmetrical dainty hearts are gold-plated. The chain can also be worn at 14 or 16 inches so that it’s easier to layer! 

I LOVE layering the Amanda Necklace with the Nina Choker shown above in the photos. The Nina Choker can also be worn as a bracelet (doubled up) which makes it so versatile. They are both great for every day, a special occasion, a night out, or for Mother’s Day!

My hope is that the Amanda Necklace will give you the inspiration to reach for your dreams!

In honor of the launch, grace + hudson has been so gracious to offer an Amanda Necklace for one lucky reader!
