Bugaboo Jewelry Review & Giveaway – For Angel Babies or Earth Babies!

After the Angel Baby sculpture giveaway went so well, I decided I wanted to do another giveaway targeted toward Angel Mommies. I browsed through Etsy once more, searching for something unique, special, and perfect.


That’s when I found..



I contacted Kristi at Bugaboo to see if she’d be willing to host a review/giveaway and to my delight, she said yes! We messaged back and forth, looking for the perfect piece when she showed me a new design. I fell in love with it immediately, and she customized one just for me and my Angel Baby; my Green Bean. It was precious, and perfect and quite unique! It came in the mail quickly and I was excited to open it up and look at my necklace.

Beautiful hearts stamped into the exterior…………

And inside, the hand-stamped name of my precious Green Bean.

It comes with a Swarovski crystal, the color of which you choose. I chose Peridot for the month of August, which was Green Bean’s due date month (August 9th, 2008).

The chain is linked in the back, so you can choose a varying degree of lengths to wear the necklace. I prefer a lower-hanging necklace so I hooked mine a bit lower.

I found out when I contacted Kristi to touch base about the giveaway that she had named this particular piece the “Green Bean Locket of Love”. I immediately teared up and felt so honored and happy that my little Angel Baby had something named after him/her! I love to wear this necklace. It goes with everything, and I love the fact that I can carry my Green Bean close to my heart. A few facts/details about the Green Bean Locket of Love:

  • The pendant is strung on a silver snake chain that is 16″ long with a hand-applied extender (as I mentioned before, for varying lengths).
  • This piece can be personalized in varying degrees; names, dates, symbols, and words can be stamped on the outside and/or inside of the locket depending on what you like.

Now I know that this one is for my Green Bean, but this locket could easily be to honor a living baby as well. That is one thing I love about Bugaboo, and this piece in particular is how easily personalized it is; making each piece a custom work of wearable art.

Now, for the part you’ve all been waiting for: The giveaway details! You can win a Green Bean Locket of Love to personalize for yourself! Here’s how:

Nellie Rose – 14 Weeks

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, Nellie is now a Very Angry Badger. She is relatively well-behaved in this video, proving my theory that she’s out to make me into a big, fat, liar in front of all my readers.

She is SO FREAKING CLOSE to rolling over I can’t stand it. And now everything goes in her mouth. If you lay something down on her chest (a blanket, a bib, etc) it immediately goes in her mouth. Also, she’s learned how to shriek. Excellent.
