Ah, motherhood jewelry — so meaningful, and all too often so, so corny. I love my kid as much as the next mom, but some of the stuff out there being marketed to moms is just plain embarrassing! Which is why when Blue Poppy offered up one of its gorgeous necklaces to Inside Out for a giveaway, I said sure.
Their mother and child pendant pairs drops of silver representing the Big Dipper with the Little Dipper on a simple black background. Elegant. Lovely. And something that doesn’t scream “Yo, I’m a Mom, and my life centers ’round my child now!” Because that’s the problem with a lot of the so-called mom jewelry, isn’t it? That it makes it appear as though we’ve given up and are now focused wholly on our children? That we’ve lost our sense of self … not to mention style?
Kudos to the women behind Blue Poppy for remembering that we’re women first, moms second.
