  1. My favorite piece is the “be still” necklace. It is a beautiful reminder of how important it is to take time to stop, in silence, and enjoy the moments that are in front of us each day. I need reminders to be still, as life can quickly pass us by.

  2. I really like the “courage” leather cuff. I like how strong and bold, yet simple and modern it is. My family has had lots of change over the last six months, and we’re in for much more. I’d love this bracelet as a tactile and visual reminder to have courage and be brave in the midst of it all.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  3. I LOVE your open circle bracelet. I eyed it forever and finally purchased it for my mother for Christmas. It arrived the other day and it was just as wonderful as I imagined! To me it represented her endless love for me and my child. On one side we had the three grandboys names and on the other her favorite saying to them- Love you to the moon and back. SHe is the most amazing grandmother!!! I have wanted a necklace for myself FOREVER!! I’ll keep my fingers crossed and maybe I’ll get lucky and win and can get one!! LOVE your work~ It is such a breath of fresh air in today’s crazy world. . .

  4. Oh, I can’t pick a favorite! I recently ordered the family tree necklace – one for myself and one for my sister. Can’t wait to see her open it on Christmas!

  5. the “be free” necklace.
    sometimes as a busy mama the last thing I feel is “free”.
    but I know…way deep in my heart I really do know.
    & I would love love love to have it hanging around my neck to remind me….
    thanks!

  6. I LOVE the dewdrops necklace, it’s on the top of my Christmas list and I really really hope my hubby got it for me!!!

  7. I love the open circle necklace. Oh and the itty bitty hearts. But everything you do is absolutely gorgeous and lovely and I get sooooo many compliments on my family tree necklace. Now this is a contents I’d die to win!!!!

  8. I got the wish necklace last year for mother’s day and I love it! It has my daughter, Adelynn’s name on it. It reminds me of the I wish you enough poem. My husband also recently got me the large initial necklace and bracelet which I love! My first initial is J and my 2 year old daughter told me the other day that she loved “my candy cane necklace!”

  9. Oh sure pick a favorite? Yea, right!
    I’m one of those ….I love several things people!

    I love the blessed necklace…..the be still……the personal one’s with initials!
    I could go on and on!

  10. hi lisa… πŸ™‚
    thanks again for this awesome giveaway!
    i was just wondering if a winner was already selected for this giveaway… i’m a new follower of your blog (even though i’ve loved your jewelry for quite some time) and not too sure how you announce winners. i’m assuming someone else has already won, but i’m just dying to know if one has been selected yet.
    thanks so much! hope you have a great day!
    beka

  11. I have been looking at your site for months trying to pick a favorite to order!!! I want a necklace that has both of my childrens names on it and somehow expresses the love I feel for them!! (As if a necklace can actually do that!!) But tonight I saw the heartstrings necklace and am in love!! All of your pieces have a beautiful feel to them but this one did just what it said, and pulled on my heartstrings!! I love it!!

  12. I just received my first piece in the mail and it is lovely. I am thinking though that my next piece will be the paper lantern necklace. My daughter is from China so the little lanterns have a special subtle meaning to them. I would have originally ordered them but I could not think of what to put on the second charm. If only you did Chinese symbols. (hint, hint) I think I also need to order a pair of earrings to go with my jewlery.

  13. oh how wonderful of you to do such a lovely giveaway lisa! i have two favorites (i’m indecisive), but choose both of them for the same reason. they are: Forever Necklace and the Small Tag Necklace. i’d order the small tag with my mama’s name on it and wear it as a visual reminder that even though she passed suddenly two years ago, that she’s always with me.

  14. Love this new design. I love all of your designs…especially the smaller ones. The bird on a branch,
    the breast cancer design ( 19 year survivor!) and on it goes. Your blog is an inspiration…love the gift
    choices for the boys. Our youngest daughter is married to a pastor too. Your description of meeting
    Steve sounds like her story….funny how God chooses our mates for us and delivers them at the right time for us to be ready for them!! Thanks for a chance to win some of your lovely jewelry.

  15. i really love the you are loved necklace–it’s something we all need to be reminded of sometimes. and i also love the fly free necklace–i like the visual inspiration, somehow it’s even more visceral than the words would have been!

  16. My favorite by far is the “sweet sister” necklace. My sister is my most beloved person in the whole world. Sometimes I feel like she is actually a part of me, because, like the necklace says, she always understands me and loves me unconditionally, and I the same for her. We just “know” each other…we don’t even have to ask whats wrong or finish our sentence before the other one understands. Recently, my sister was struck with mental illness, and has been away from me seeking treatment. It has been very very hard to watch the person you love the most suffer and to be so unable to help. Although I am unable to help her get better, I tell my sister every time we talk that I always with her, and that although all I can give her is my love and understanding, she has that without question, forever. The necklace reminds me of what sisters really are, a halo of protection and care around you no matter what. Thank you for your inspiring design.

  17. i love all of your work . That would be so hard to choose πŸ™‚ If i had to though it would be the big circle to put my kids names on it . thx !

  18. I’m not sure when this closes, but I thought that I could take the chance to let you know anyway that I love you jewelry and photos/blog. I became hooked when I came across your birdie piece. And I have to say that this last one “loved” is a precious one too. I think that if anyone had that given to them it has so much “meaning” it’s precious. Thanks =)

  19. I love the Cherish necklace…it is so simple but says so much about life and what we should remember everyday!

  20. What beautiful, simple necklaces! I love them all, but the bird ones really caught my eye. My daughter’s name is Wren and the little birds make me think of her. πŸ™‚

  21. I LOOOOVE the family pieces!!!! πŸ™‚ The loved necklace is beautiful….I also adore the BLOOM necklace!!! πŸ˜€ Thanks!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

  22. Wow, I like the loved (and beloved would be great too) and be still.
    I love visiting this little “still” spot when things feel hectic and busy. Thanks for the sweet peace in this space. Christmas blessings to your family…

  23. My favorite piece is the “key to my heart” necklace. I’d like to keep this around my neck to remind me and others that the key to my heart is within reach if they treat me right.

  24. I have to agree with others in saying the new “YOU ARE LOVED” necklace is so soft, with a touch of vintage, and a ton of heart. I’d love to wear it every day!

  25. I love the rectangle keychain for my husband. I would have, “as you wish” inscribed on it, because that’s how my husband told me he loved me the first time. We’re Princess Bride fans….

  26. I would love to have the jumble of charms with all of my kids’ names. So beautiful. My hubby bought me one of the necklaces for our anniversary next week (10 years) I am super excited…can’t wait for it to arrive.
    Happy Christmas!!

  27. I think I would love the have the little initial’s necklace. I have twins and so I would get their initials. I’d love to have this gift certificate, it be such a blessing!

  28. I love this jewelry…so simple, yet so beautiful. The “I hold your heart in mine” is my favorite. Not only does it ring true for how I feel about my two little girls, but it reminds me of the e.e. cummings poem “I carry your heart with me” which was read at my wedding. My amazing, patient husband held my hand through 2 very difficult pregnancies and I love him for that! What a gift!

  29. Although it is SO hard to choose just one, the Be Still necklace speaks volumes. To me, this necklace represents tranquility and serenity. And, let’s face it, we can ALL use more serenity in our lives!

  30. my favorite piece is the family crest…i love that it is something that can be passed down {well, all of your jewelry can be!} generation to generation…it will be a piece with history.

  31. I agree with Daniela…. it’s very tough to pick just one. I have the simple circle with the meaning of my 2 children’s name written on it and LOVE it.

    However, we are expecting #3 in March so obviously I need a knew one… haha. We are currently missionaries in Hong Kong and so I’m quite drawn to the Chinese Lantern necklace. My youngest was 2 months when we moved here and #2 was and #3 will be born here… they are definitely Chinese in how they do a number of things and I would love to have this necklace with their names and beginning years reflected in the picture to eventually pass down to them.

    Regardless… you make beautiful jewelry and it’s a blessing to read your blog and know that you are able to make a difference doing this!

    Merry CHristmas!

  32. that’s a tough one!
    i’m getting the laundry-line necklace for christmas, but it was really hard to decide.
    i also LOVE the dewdrop-necklace, but i needed more space for the names of my four kids :).

  33. my fave necklace is the one I received for my 30th birthday from my best friend that has the dandilion and the word wish. What a special gift for a big birthday!

  34. I think the piece I love the most on your site is the paper lanterns customizable necklace. This way, I would be able to wear my entire family on my neck in the form of adorable good luck lanterns!

  35. my favorite piece is the mutiple tag necklace. it lets you display more than one feeling or love of something or someone at the same time. i love your jewelry it looks great with eveything and you can wear one piece or layer them and they are perfect either way! happy holidays to your staff and family!

  36. I love the necklace I got for myself that has my children’s names on it (Tiny Tags). I also love my pearl earrings that match my necklace. My favorite is the one that my husband got for me on my birthday that have the little feet on them with my children’s name. It was a surprise and straight from his heart. I LOVE my hubby!

  37. I think the new “you are loved” necklace might be my new favorite. Simple, beautiful and a wonderful daily reminder!

  38. My favorite piece is the fly free necklace. My daughter turned 1 year in October and we did a time capsule for her to open when she is 16 years old. I put the fly free necklace in her time capsule so that she can open it when she turns 16. I want her to know that she can be anything or anyone she sets her heart on.

  39. There are so many that I am in love with!! I love the tiny tags, the family tree and the loved necklace. I love the bracelets. I am so glad that Ali Edwards had you on her website, so I could find you. πŸ™‚

    Happy Holidays!

  40. My favorites are the necklaces! They are all so beautiful and they totally reflect my style…
    If i would have enough money I would buy every necklace in your shop… πŸ™‚
    Have a great, great weekend!

  41. I love the hope necklace & the tiny squares necklace!! First, the hope necklace becase I am a cancer survivor and it was hope & faith that got me through that time, so I would love to wear that proudly! Then the tiny squares necklace because I have two beautiful toddlers I would love to “wear around my neck” at all times. πŸ™‚ Everytime I would touch that necklace it would remind me of the most important things in my life…my children! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  42. I have the circle necklace w/ love . . . xo on one side & my kiddos’ names on the back. I wear it all the time & love it. During stressful times of life & parenting, it says to me, “Remember, they won’t be little for long. One day . . .one day very soon. . . you are going to miss this madness. Slow down. Cherish each moment of every day. Treasure the little things.”

  43. I absolutely love the family crest necklace! The scroll detail is so beautiful and vintage. More importantly, the necklace reminds me how close my family is to my heart. The Love and thankfulness for family tends to get forgotten when it shouldn’t, but the holidays really bring that out of people, and it’s a heart warming thing to see:)

  44. the original necklace and the open circle necklace… and Loved.. Honestly I love what you do… you have an amazing talent.
    Thanks for what you do and for your beautiful work..both in words and in jewelry.

  45. i am absolutely mesmerized by the art & handicraft that went into the “i hold your heart in mine” necklace because it reminds me that, at least for me, i still have my mom’s heart in mine in a spiritual sense even though she’s no longer here with us (she passed away from cancer in 2003)….and when i read that phrase i’m comforted & reminded that because of my mom, i found my faith in the Lord, who has me in his heart. i love your attention to detail and i’m so inspired in reading your blog and i want to be a loving mom and a dutiful wife someday.

  46. I LOVE the open circle necklace and adore the monogram one too. I really like the new one you have in stock, ‘loved’. So very beautiful.

  47. LOVE everything you make, which I tell everyone when they comment on my Be Still necklace. My favorite though is the Dewdrops necklace which I’d like to have personalized with the names of my sons.

  48. My favorite is the “you are loved” necklace….I really want to give one to my daughter to remind her that she is special to me. She is a young mom who give all her attention to her husband and two little boys……I think she needs to be reminded of just how much she is loved πŸ™‚

  49. As a mom for the second time around as of Friday I feel so loved. Months ago I asked my hubby for the circle bracelet for Christmas so we’ll see if he was able to pull it off, I’m crossing my fingers!!!

  50. I LOVE this new necklace you’ve designed. Perfect reminder that God loves me right now. just the way I am. I can’t do anything more or less to change that love. Also I would love to give it to someone to let them know they are loved…by me.

    I love these give-aways!

  51. My favourite piece is the blowing dandelion pendant you personalized for me with the sanskrit words “aham prema” meaning “I am divine love.” When I wear it, I find my fingers drifting to the charm at my throat and giving me a gentle reminder to cultivate love, compassion and kindness in my life. It fills up my heart!

  52. You are loved. Imagine if each of us would really understand and live it out! To know you are Loved no matter what, it the greatest gift we can share with each other. It could change the world, one person at a time – the way it has always been…

  53. Lisa, I love every one of my necklaces. Every morning, I wake up and decide which one to wear that day. Most have variations of my kids’ names on them. When I wear one of those, Abby always lights up and asks which name is hers. Now she can pick out the “A” and knows it’s her. So sweet.

  54. the new loved piece is amazing! it is the perfect little reminder of happiness and warmth to get you through the rough spots in life. LOVE IT!

  55. I love the banner necklace (I’m getting it for Christmas). My husband had it stamped with the word “trust” to remind me to trust in God, even when it’s hard.

  56. I love the Wish necklace (getting it for xmas!) and the family tree necklace. I love all the pieces and it is so hard to choose just one!

  57. ok, so my favorite piece is the one I already have. My hubby ordered it when my daughter was expected to be born and it is one of your classics! Just a large silver circle with my son, Sammy, and my daughter, Sophie’s, names on it. i asked for a heart charm instead of a pearl and he seriously held it up at motivation to push her out! I think the gift ceritificate would be so amazingly well spent on a few personal pieces for my sisters, plus maybe a keychain for daddy and a new best friend necklace somewhere! Too fun to decide just yet!

  58. I love the LOVES necklace, though all of your pieces are so unique and pretty I’d have a hard time choosing just one. I’d love to win…. Pick me, pick me!

  59. My favorite piece is the ‘love’ necklace that is shown here. I would wear this necklace proudly everyday as it would be a constant reminder of how much God loves me, flaws and all. It is beautiful!

  60. I don’t yet own a lisa leonard necklace, but did ask Santa for one. I asked for the Family Tree Necklace. It is my favorite (and on my wishlist!) for two reasons: One, we just had our first baby in July, so i want something that represents that. Secondly, the tree symbolizes more than just my familiy but that He (God) is the Vine and we are Branches. I know it is isnt’ exactly a vine, but the symbolism is there for me to look at and remember how blessed I am to have such a loving creator to be rooted in AND that He blessed me with a wonderful family πŸ™‚

  61. My “Teeny Tiny Initals” necklace means the most to me. My husband gave it to me for mother’s day, of course I had to send him the link, but he asked. It has my kids initals and a snowy white pearl. The initals of course remind me of my precious children, and the peal reminds me that my sins are covered by the blood of Jesus. He has taken my sins (a grain of sand) and completly covered them (made a pearl). This gift from my husband is worn almost daily and means much to me πŸ™‚ If I were to get another creation from Lisa for myself, I think I may get “dewdrops” with my hubs and I enscripted J+L. The Clear stone reminds me of “transparency” and to be open. The water drop shape reminds me that we are one and fused together, however the attached pearl reminds me that our relationship is Christ centered and “three” dimensional for the three pieces :).

  62. The “Family Tree necklace” is my favourite!
    The perfect picture of my life would be my lovely husband at my side, four kids in the back of my car (I already have two, hoping for more) and the family tree necklace around my neck :o)

  63. I love the original necklace and the “sister known, understood, loved necklace. I actually love all your necklaces! Jewelry really is not my thing, but you have a gift and I think you make wonderful jewelry!

  64. I love the “fly free” necklace. I like it because I hope that is what my 2 daughters will do someday– fly free from here and take risks to live a full and happy life. Thanks for the chance to win!

  65. I love my tiny squares necklace with the names of my daughter and son. I wear it everyday. I also love the family crest necklace although I don’t have one. It is certainly on my wish list.

  66. I don’t know if I can pick just one….there are so many I would LOVE! I think you can never go wrong with an initial one so I’ll go with that! You are so inspiring through your work!

  67. My favorite is still the oval monogram necklace. Maybe one day I’ll get it. I do have some of your other designs and I love them all. Your work is beautiful! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  68. WOW! Where do I begin? My favorite pieces are the….Mama necklace….my little girl always called me that…(and sometimes still does at the age of 9) and I also love the wishing star necklace that says Peace….that is my word for everyday life and also this new loved necklace! I feel like if we have PEACE and feel LOVED in our every day life…..what a difference the world would be. The $250…I would give to my cousin. In May of this year she lost two children….her daughter was killed in an automobile accident on the way to school. (only 16) and the following Monday her son was killed in a separate automobile accident. (only 21) She still has a son at home. I would love to win and have her get a gift for her! She can find something to put her sweet little Angles names on. That would be a great gift to give her!

    Lisa….I love your website. I’m on it every day! You inspire me with your blog and when you put other peoples blogs on there to read….it helps me get through my day!

    Love, love, love to you all!
    Snowy in Nebraska!

  69. I absolutely love the My Heart necklace. It is so simple and sweet and has just right the sentiment. Love your pieces!!

  70. My favorite piece is my dandelion wish necklace with my children’s names on it. I love that there is a … at the end – we’re pregnant again and can’t wait to add another name to my little list of wishes-come-true. Your pieces are so beautiful and inspiring and I get many compliments on my necklace. Thank you for creating such beautiful work to reflect how we feel about our families and friends – it really is a priceless service.

  71. I like the Family Tree necklace and the Mama necklace. Nothing is so wonderful to me as being a mama. It changed my whole perspective on life. I used to be so career-driven and motivated by things like status, appearance, etc., but since having my little one — she is all that matters. She has taught me to value the simple things.

  72. I’ve always loved the xo necklace. When my husband left on his very first deployment in the military, I began to sign all my letters and emails with xoxo. Ever since you unveiled this design, I’ve thought it would be nice to have and pass on to my daughter some day to tell her the story. I also love the itty bitty hearts necklace though b/c I’d love to keep all my kids’ initials close to my heart (including my stepdaughter who now lives with her mother after being raised by us for 5 years). πŸ™ Anyways…your pieces always seem to stroke an emotional side with me…in a good way!! πŸ™‚ You are so talented. Merry Christmas and God bless you and your precious family!!

  73. What a wonderful giveaway and difficult comment prompt! I am lucky enough to have a monogram necklace which I love and get lovely compliments on each time I wear it! I also adore the be still necklace and the tiny charms. I love giving away the baby spoons as gifts…..shall I go on?!

  74. My favorite necklace is the Momma necklace. The gift of a child is a miracle and being a mother or ‘Momma’ is one of the most important jobs that God gives us. People tend to down-size the magnitude of what a being a Mom really means and the hard work that it involves. Lisa, I think that it is so fantastic that someone like you recognizes this! I love my Mommy necklace!

  75. I LOVE the mama necklace – I had my first child this year, an amazingly fun & loving little boy named Holden. He is the light of my life and I would love the mama necklace to show that off!

  76. what generous give away Lisa! you are amazing. If I had to pick, I would say the “be still” necklace is my favorite. It love it’s simplicity and the quiet message it carries. I can always use the reminder to “be still” under so many different circumstances in life. Happy Holidays!

  77. The Sweetheart Tree Necklace is my favorite. I’d love to wear it with my initial and my husband’s. We’re celebrating our sixth marriage anniversary soon and it just gets better every day.

    Thanks for the chance!

  78. I love the itty bitty hearts necklace. I want to get this with my initials and my husbands. I like the family tree necklace too but won’t get it until after we have a family.

  79. I would love to be able to get the Sisters necklace for my sister’s birthday in February. I think she would love it. There are several necklaces I would pick for myself too. Thanks for the beautiful jewelry and for the generous contest.

  80. Two necklaces caught me eye. The first was the laundry line necklace, since I can never quite seem to get caught up on the laundry! I have three children three and under, and still haven’t figured out how tiny people can make so much work. πŸ™‚ I love that it has everyone’s names on it, too. The second necklace that really appealed to me was the Be Still necklace, because I need the reminder to “Be still and know that I am God”. Beautiful work! πŸ™‚

  81. I really love the “loved” necklace. What a wonderful way to remind someone that they are loved. My Mom constantly plays with her necklaces. This would be such an amazing gift for her. Everytime she played wih this necklace, she would be reminded that she is very much loved.

  82. Lisa-
    My favorite piece is my necklace. It has the “I hold your heart in mine” heart and it also has a long name plate charm with “Braydain” on it. I got it on my first mother’s day when my husband and I had our foster son. He has since returned to his biological family. We miss him like crazy. I wear it all the time so that our hearts are always together. Even though he may not be with our family, we hold his heart with ours and he will always be a part of our family. This necklace just makes me feel a little closer to him. Thank you for creating such an amazing piece that has helped me through the most difficult time in our lives.

  83. Lisa, my favorite piece is the open circle necklace that I ordered with the words “created, chosen, cherished. It is for me to cherish the memory of my son who was placed for adoption almost 18 years ago. I have yet to be reunited with him, but I hold the hope in my heart and wear this necklace in his memory! Thank you for your beautiful jewelry!

  84. I gave the LOVED necklace to my mom for Mothers Day and she absolutely loved it!. Thanks for this great opportunity to win!

  85. I love the one you made for me and Noonie. And the one you ‘built’ around my cross and memorial teardrop. You are so creative – everything you make is so special. hugs

  86. Wow I love the LOVED necklace. Such a good reminder for me. I’d love to wear it as a notice to others who have disregarded me due to foolish choices I made. In spite of my lousy choices, I’m still loved.

  87. I love the Cherish necklace. To me, it’s very much about focusing on the here and now. Not letting myself be controlled by fear and anxiety (I’m now pregnant for the third time this year)….and just enjoying what I have and know today. I know how anything can be lost but, right now, I have 2 lliving children and am greatful.

  88. I love it all..okay, I’ll narrow it down. I love the the dewdrops necklace! Oh, and the friendship necklace, no wait the sweet and simple birdie necklace, and the loved necklace, and then there’s the open circle bracelet and how about those aqua stones earrings or bronze freshwater pearls. Oh…i think i need to get a second job!!! The loved necklace reminds me that not only am I blessed to be loved by my husband and 3 sons, but my Savior! We are rich is in His love!

  89. You are asking me to pick a favorite????? How cruel. I suppose I could say the paper lantern necklace. It’s so different from other “mom” necklaces…so fun. I love each of your necklaces and can’t wait to see which one my husband picked out for me!

  90. My favorite piece is the fly free necklace. After several years with an eating disorder Ive been able (over the last year and a half) to achieve recovery. To me, this necklace is really representative of my journey – getting out of the cage and flying FREE! πŸ™‚

  91. You have such talent. I love the pieces that I own and have given as gifts. So special, each one surpasses the last. I am loving the new You are Loved piece – everyone needs a little reminding sometimes. Happy Holidays!

  92. I look forward to buying the paper lantern necklace when my second child arrives and I can get three charms for my three most loved and important people (hubby and two kids).

  93. I love the “Mama” necklace. I look forward to having my children’s names done on tags when our family is complete. However, we have a few kids to go before that happens. I’d love to have the Mama necklace to wear in the mean time representing how much I love each child as they come along.

  94. My favorite necklace of all time is the tag necklace. I have one with two tags, each with one of my daughters names. I was in the hospital for over a month when I was pregnant with my second daughter. It was a hospital far from home and my 21 month old daughter did not get to visit everyday. I missed her so much. My husband gave me the necklace on Mother”s Day spent in the hospital feeling awful. I cherish the necklace and wear it almost everyday. It reminds me of how precious and wonderful my girls are and even when they are not with me, they are close to my heart.

  95. the cherished necklace….i have loved that one since before graduation…i feel like that is a word that that Lord gave me during my masters program…that i’m cherished by him. & i LOVE that you added a tiny little diamond to it, that sure doesn’t hurt!! ; ) ah…maybe one day (or if i win the GC) i’ll be able to get that necklace!! love to you and yours this holiday season, lisa. i pray you feel cherished by those around you, and especially by the Lord. xooxoxo

  96. I LOVE my “Mama” necklace!!! It’s so special and I get so many compliments on it! I am looking forward to hearing from my friend’s hubby and girls when their special Christmas presents arrive. I hope the pieces you are making for them remind them of how special their mom/wife was.

  97. My favorite piece is the Sweet Sister Necklace. My sister is my best friend and my favorite person in the world. No one can truly understand the relationship we have, unless they themselves have a sister close to their heart (like you, Lisa!). Today I felt extremely homesick for my sister. I hate living so far away from her. I love that necklace because it is a reminder of how I feel when I am around my sister: known, understood and loved.

  98. Lisa: Your talent is amazing. My favorite piece is the “Mama Necklace”. We welcomed our first son in early February at 32 weeks. He is now a happy and healthy almost 3 year old. Everything the necklace says is something I have wanted to do my entire life. Being a mother is my calling. We are now expecting out 2nd in 2010. Mama…the best name in the world.

  99. I love the teeny tiny initials necklace I received from my hubby when my twins turned a year old. Now I need to add another for my new ay girl.. You are so talented and I love your blog!!!

    happy holidays!

  100. How on earth could I possibly choose a favorite piece?
    But, if I have to choose one…it would be the very one you posted today…YOU ARE LOVED.
    It reminds me of the relationships that have challenged me in the past year. Relationships that I didn’t necessarily ask for, choose, or seek out. Pondering the thought that God placed these in my life for reasons I don’t fully understand yet, and perhaps, maybe, He is teaching me, showing me how to love the unlovable, the imperfect, the wounded, and the scarred. Just as He loves me, His child, …reminding me, whispering tenderly, YOU ARE LOVED.

  101. My favorite piece is the lovebird. I have both the necklace and bracelet. I noticed you don’t sell the bracelet anymore, and it makes it even more special as my piece is that much more unique. I love the quality and the hammered by hand effect that goes into your pieces. Plus, I love supporting independent artists like you.

  102. Love….Loved! My favorite piece is the one you custom made for me…the open circle with my favorite scripture…….faith….hope…certain of the unseen. I love your work and would buy every piece if I could!!!

    Merry Christmas!!

    Susan

  103. I love the Dewdrop Necklace, and the tiny initials one, oh and the open circle one…it’s so hard to choose! If I won I would probably choose tiny initials and do one for me and each of my sisters with the first letters of our first names on them…my sisters mean the world to me & I would be lost without our therapeutic phone calls and board game nights!

  104. My favorite piece (of ALL my jewelry!) is the necklace with my momma tags on it . . . I wear it just about every day – I rarely take it off and it makes me smile when I see it in the mirror. Thanks for the beautiful representation of my two beautiful babes!

  105. My favorite piece is the Sweet Sister Necklace, because I have the best sisters in the entire world…..

  106. Your designs are gorgeous! My favorite is the friendship necklace. I would buy one for myself and another for my good friend who is so very far away.

  107. Without a doubt the itty bitty hearts initial necklace! Since I found your blog I’ve become a mother to 2 itty bitty girls with 2 itty bitty hearts that have stolen mine! xoxo

  108. Wow….it is hard to pick a favorite as all of your work is incredible!!!

    Two of my favorites are Momma and You are Loved…..I have bookmarked your store and will be leaving hints for my hubby!

    Thanks for sharing!
    Julie

  109. i absolutely love all of your designs. especially your inspired pieces. just love how you find beauty in the simple. i can still remember one of the first necklaces i laid eyes on was your “something simple” BLOOM necklace from some time ago…
    i guess if i were to pick my favs right now they would be the friendship, sweet sister, & you are loved necklaces, as well as the 2009 ornament. thank you for sharing your gift with us. have a beautiful Christmas with your precious family!

  110. My favorite piece is “lucky mommy” which really to me is “blessed mommy.” I have two amazing children-4 and 2 yo. My youngest had a rough beginning to life. She was born premature at 30 wks due to complications of the pregnancy. She weighed 2 lbs 2oz/33 cm in length. She literally fit in the palm of my hand. God spared her and has blessed us with precious Haley whose name means strongwilled (which she is in every way). She has some hearing impairment and some walking issues but is joy to us everyday. I am exctied about this new lovely piece. You continue to amaze me in your creativity. May God continue to bless you as you are blessing others.

  111. Love it all,for real. LOVE the “be still’ necklace,means so very much to me on a personal level. Amazing,all of it!

  112. My favorite necklace…so far….is the one you made for my daughter. I gave it to her for her wedding and it has her and husbands names on one heart and their wedding date on the other. She loves it and wears it all of the time. I would love to win this certificate to order more pieces. Thank you for that chance.

  113. That “Sweet and Simple Birdie Necklace” is beautiful! I could see myself wearing it daily. With your gift certificate, I could check off gifts for me, my Mom, and my sister from the site and everyone would be stoked at what they received!

  114. I literally just got my “captured heart” necklace in the mail today. It was from my husband for my birthday (tomorrow), and I couldn’t help but take a peek! I nearly wept all over it. I have had a really rough past 6 months battling post pardum depression and finding myself as a Mommy of two, yet on the same note I can not imagine life any different then with my Rylan and Addison. They have indeed captured my heart completely. For them I will always fight. Now I can wear then close to my heart everyday. I showed Rylan the necklace and that his name is on it (he is 3), he said ” Mommy loves me even on her neck”—ahh yes my little man, Mommy loves you from head to toe.

  115. I love the Hope necklace. I have two grandmothers that have survived cancer which just proves that with hope and faith anything is possible. This jewelry is all so amazing, I love it all. I would love to win the gift certificate to get them both a necklace to wear and remind them that they are warriors of strength!

  116. OMG how on earth do I pick just one item that is my favorite. I am just visiting your site for the first time, and am completely blown away. Each and every piece in your collection is breathtaking. Every piece of jewlery tells a story. I am really having a hard time picking. I would have to love the KEY TO MY HEART necklace, the LOVEBIRD necklace is just as inspiring. I would love to give my partner the MY HEART necklace, and would be blessed to wear a personalized LITTLE FEET necklace holding my son’s name close to my heart. I can go on and on! For this reason I wish to win the gift certificate to get all that and more!

  117. I love the “be still” necklace. I need a constant reminder to “be still.” To me this is a reminder to stop worrying and fretting, but instead to accept that the life I am given is far better than what I would plan for myself. It is a reminder to slow down and appreciate the precious moments that life brings. It is a beautiful thing.

  118. My favorite necklace has to be the one with the little bird on the right side with some plant life on the left. Your blog sums it up…it is the little things that count. This is my favorite necklace because my family and I just adopted a stray cat who we named Little Bird. On those early mornings when he’d run by the food plate we put out for him and grab a mouthful of food at 60 miles an hour, we never thought he’d develope into the sweet, charming lap cat he is today. After four months of hard work, he is our Little Bird. This necklace would be perfect to help us remember the family memories we are making with him every day.

  119. I really love the key to my heart necklace. A much better version of what Tiffany’s is trying to make money on right now. This piece is a must have!!

  120. Oh my gosh…I want to WIN the gift certificate so I can tell you which piece is my favorite by finally owning some of your gorgeous jewelry! For now I have my eyes set on the tree initial piece, so sweet and romantic…and your new “loved” piece; my 12 year old daughter Sarah is at that awkward stage, she’s so driven and passionate about her soccer, yet struggles with things right now, including believing that she is, indeed, greatly loved. I would love to order one of those for her right now, because she is indeed very, very loved.

  121. My favorite is the square tags too. I got three tags. One for my husband, one for my son and the third for me with my maiden name. I love the sound it makes. I wear it when I run and to go to sleep; near & dear. I also got the star with my stepdad’s first name on one side and his last name in the back right after he died in October. My mom stole it and wears it all the time and has gotten many compliments. Her doctor told her that the freshwater pearl represents my mother so they are always together. Awww!

  122. I absolutely love the 2009 ornament, the fly-free necklace, and my hubby likes the wide leather cuff.

    Hope I win! I absolutely love your blog and your jewelry! πŸ™‚

  123. Lisa – your jewellery is gorgeous. I only came across your stuff a few weeks back. I will be forwarding this to my hubby as a big hint! I love your newest ‘You Are Loved’ necklace. I think it would make a wonderful and heartfelt gift for anyone. But I especially love the itty bitty necklace with initials. I recently had a second boy and I would love to keep them close to my heart. Have a wonderful Christmas with your sweet little family!

  124. I love my tags with my boys names on them – I love how they come and find their names when I tuck them in every night! I have to say that it still drives me nuts that I forgot a name on my mom’s family tree, regardless of the add-on!!

  125. be still my soul! how divine would it be to get my sisters matching necklaces, maybe the sweet sisters one?? very sentimental, which all of us are. i will be on pins and needles until the deadline!

  126. My favorite piece is the “Be Still” necklace. I think the design is beautiful and the meaning behind it is something i so easily forget, being still before God. You create amazing jewelry! πŸ™‚

  127. I love the jumble of names necklcae so flipping cute! However I only have to kiddos…and uh, it would look weird on me with only two filled out! So I love the Be Still necklace. What a great reminder in the craze of everyday life to stop. be still. remember. I love your work Lisa!

  128. I have the open circle necklace on my Christmas list, I would love to have it with the names of my triplets inside. After a wonderful ‘snow day’ at home today, I am reminded how precious they are and how much I treasure them. I would love to wear their names close to my heart. I do also adore the ‘loved’ necklace! What wonderful work!

  129. My favorite piece is my wedding ring-it symbolizes all of the things we’ve been through and how much more we have to look forward to.

  130. There is no doubt in my mind that your Laundry Line necklace is my favorite. I’m 26 years old but I’ve moved over 15 times and lived in 3 different countries. It was difficult for me to make friends while growing up, but I always had my family for support. My brother is my best friend and my parents are my best supporters. This necklace is a good reminder for me that my family means everything to me. I would love to own one and keep it close to my heart.

  131. My favorite is the “You are loved” necklace. When I’m feeling low and unloved, it reminds me that I need to get a grip because I really am loved.

  132. I have been trying to decide on a favorite piece, and I am having a hard time choosing–which is why I would really love the gift certificate so that I wouldn’t have to choose just one! I am really leaning towards the captured heart necklace because I could fit all 4 of my family’s names on it, and how special to wear everyday, and remind me of what’s most important in my life! I also really love the one with tiny initials, and the petite family crest–I LOVE them all, because they’re all so special and custom! I am asking for one of these necklaces for Christmas, and am really hoping that Santa will be kind! That gift certificate will be a fabulous Christmas gift for some lucky person–Merry Christmas to all!!!

  133. My favorite is the leaf ornament. It reminds me of when the leaves change to a brilliant orange and every year I am reminded of all of God’s glory to make such colors!

  134. i LOVE the “be still” necklace. to me it symbolizes to be still and wait for what is to come. i am a single woman in my 20s waiting to for mr. right. .being still and patient for him is the hardest thing to do. this necklace symbolizes that wait and the wonderful thing which are to come.

  135. This is hard! I was all set to say the tiny hearts or family crest would be a great way for me to memorialize my recent marriage (and baby!) but then i saw the fly free necklace – and I LOVE it. Feeling rather trapped in an… unfulfiling job, I would love the (beautiful) inspiration to break out of it!

  136. I love so many of the items. Some of my favorites were the oval monogram, the cherish necklace, and the original necklace. I would love, love, love any item from this store.

  137. My favorite is the love birds necklace! My name is Robin, and my mom has always called me her little love bird πŸ™‚ You have amazing pieces!

  138. My favorite is the “be still” necklace. I struggle with mental illness and meditate at night to help me sleep often, but am also trying to do so during the day to keep calm and focused at work, etc. This necklace reminds me of tranquility.

  139. The Oval Monogram Necklace. I can’t remember where I saw it first saw it, but it was what brought me to your blog. I remember wearing monogrammed sweaters as a kid and to me that necklace is an updated version of a classic.

  140. you can delete my prior comment–sorry.

    i love the sweet and simple birdie necklace because it reflects the natural world with beauty and simplicity. the natural world means a lot to me– i love animals, and i yearn to get out in the woods where there’s just quiet and fresh air and the sounds of nature.

  141. The sweet and simple necklace is my favorite. It reminds me of my little girl, my little bird, as I think of her. Blackbird is one of the songs I sing to her, I even sang it to her while I was in labor.

  142. My favorite is the “you are loved” necklace. The reason why is this: My dear friend was just diagnosed with unoperable cancer and her future is bleak. You are loved is exactly the sentiment that I want her to take with her in this fight she is facing. On payday next week, I will be placing my order.

  143. My favorite changes all the time…for real.

    Right now, my favorite is this loved necklace. It is for the simple reason that I need to recall that I am loved. Sometimes that simple truth is the one I let fly first.

  144. this was so hard to try and find a favorite! i love them ALL! The family tree really holds a special place in my heart! mine is a blended family, my husband and i have 2 boys, my 12 yr old is from a prev marriage and my husband and i welcomed our youngest 2 1/2 years ago. they’re my whole world! i’d love to have a personalized piece to celebrate my family!

  145. I do love the “mama” necklace, because that is my proudest achievement, being a mama!
    Happy Holidays to you and your beautiful family πŸ™‚

  146. I love the open circle bracelet that has “mom” all the way around it. I am a mother to a 16 month old with my second child on the way and I can’t think of a better piece of jewelry that describes my life right now!

  147. I really like the “Hugs & Kisses” necklace. It is so simple and sweet. It reminds me of the old bedtime routine I had with my mother when I was little. We always did eskimos kisses, which are simple and sweet, just like the necklace!

  148. I love the be still necklace. For me, that phrase reminds me to pause and appreciate all the beauty in the world. (also love sweet tree necklace, so sweet and romantic for me and my guy)

  149. I just love the ‘mama necklace’! The words on it are so inspiring and powerful. I’d love to wear it around my neck! …and the chain, OMG, how original is that? Just gorgeous and absolutely beautiful!

    I just stumbled upon your blog (and store) looking for some Christmas giveaways…I just love your jewelry, your photos, your blog and your openness about your child’s disability. I also have two boys with special needs. I love them to death, but boy can they be trying. I will for sure continue to follow your blog…

    Thanks for the chance to win your awesome jewelry giveaway! Happy Holidays!

    Kari

  150. I love the Hope necklace… it reminds me of my mom and her battle with breast cancer. What a great gift that would be for her. Thanks!

    Jen.Doctor32 (at) gmail.com

  151. I think my absolute favorite is the sweet and simple birdie necklace (with the be still necklace a very close second). Every time I look at it, it brings joy to my heart and it just reminds me of that feeling of peace and simplicity I feel when I’m just sitting with nature, being in the moment.

  152. Oh my…I love so many it’s hard to say just one. I love the family tree for obvious reasons, my family is everything. I also love the family crest, so girly and me but this new is really cute!!! Merry Christmas

  153. My current favourite is the ‘loved’ necklace, because sometimes everybody needs a reminder that they are loved, no matter what is going on in life – me included.
    Having said that I just ordered two little squares necklaces for two amazing friends, I can’t wait to see their faces when they open their gifts!

  154. A friend got me the Cherish necklace recently, and it’s honestly one of the most important things I own. It’s a constant reminder to cherish all the wonderful things I have in my life… and especially to cherish my amazing friend!

    Your jewelry speaks to the heart. πŸ™‚

  155. My favourite piece of yours at the moment is the Family Tree necklace. My family is the most important thing in the world to me, especially at this time of year!

  156. I love the sweet & simple birdie necklace! Very cute, I know my friend Jen would love this for christmas!

  157. I have so many favorites! I can not narrow it down. I love the necklaces that have a family theme–family tree, any with multiple charms for kids’ names. I try not to looks too often because they I just covet. πŸ™‚

  158. Simple is beautiful. I feel this about all the jewelry you make and friendships. I couldn’t imagine having the opportunity to give my loved ones something as nice as this. First on my list: be still necklace, family tree and wish necklace…. I’ll cross my fingers! Thanks for this opportunity!!!

  159. I love the be still necklace. It reminds me of “be still and know that I am God”. It’s wonderful to just know that no matter what storms life may throw or how impatient I may be when it comes to waiting on an answer to prayer that He is God. All I have to do it be still and He will answer in His time.

  160. We have decide not to do any adult gifts (kids only!) in my family this year so I think I would surprise my mom and sister with the “mama” and “sister” necklaces. I would also really love the mama one for myself! : ) What a generous gift for someone to receive during the holiday season!

    And I love your blog Lisa, never miss a day!

  161. I love the tree necklace with the intials! It reminds me of sweet innocent love! I would love one of those with my initials and my boyfriend’s initials! πŸ™‚

  162. I really love the open circle bracelet,that would have my kids names on it (ages 10,7,5). Even if I don’t win it’s still on the very top of my jewelry wish list for someday because well…I don’t own a bracelet (or even a necklace for that matter but who’s counting) ha! πŸ™‚ I’m a stay at home mom,my hubby and I knew we would be sacrificing things due to tight budgets and such,so jewelry isn’t on the top priority list (BUT someday it will be..thus I have my wishlist in place for when the moment arrives. I would’nt trade jewelry or anything else for the rewards of being a stay at home mom to my 3 kids. Other than my wedding ring I’m not into flashy jewerly, I love warm heartfelt pieces so Lisa when I found your website I fell in love! Every single one of your pieces are just goregous and clearly made with love,it’s so evident!! I have passed your website on to everyone I know πŸ™‚ Merry Christmas!

  163. My favorite is the Sisters necklace. Me and my twin bought ourselves one and one for our little sister when she got married and was moving away. We all love it.

  164. I have the teenie tiny initial necklace that my husband gave me after our daughter was born this spring. It has all four of our initials on it and I wear it every day. I also love the be still necklace. I love birds and be still is my little meditative mantra…

  165. I love my Be Still necklace. It reminds me to be still and let God be in control of my moments and days. Growing up as the child of a biologist, I always have had a strong connection with nature and find peace & God in nature. I love that the necklace features a bird and branch (& also loved the original photograph that inspired it). All that said, I want my next piece of jewelry to be something that includes my family… I LOVE LOVE LOVE paper lanterns, so would love to make that my next necklace..but regardless, Lisa thanks for sharing beautiful jewelry,your beautiful photography and beautiful family in your blog. I truly enjoy reading it! Merry Christmas!

  166. Ohhh forgot! Family is the most important gift from God, that’s why I love those necklaces. My kids love when I wear anything they have made or with their names on it:)

  167. I LOVE all your pieces! When I try to decide on just one I never can:) Your Family Tree necklace and anything I can put my kids names on are my favs. Love your blog…thanks for sharing a slice of your life with us. Merry Christmas.

  168. WOW! What a generous giveaway! Hard to pick a favorite….but I think the family tree is it…family is so important and so dear to us and that necklace so beautifully expresses that! Merry Christmas!
    Alana

  169. This new necklace is beautiful! It might just be my new favorite! Besides this new one, I love the “my heart” necklace. It says “I hold your heart in mine” and it reminds me of e.e. Cummings poem, I carry your heart, which is one of my all time favorite poems.

    You do beautiful work, Lisa, and I love reading your blog. Keep it up and have a very Merry Christmas!

  170. My favorite is the family tree necklace, it’s on the top of my Christmas list! I love this piece because my family means everything to me and what a perfect way to display that everyday. I want to get my husband’s and my two little boy’s names on it and wear them close to my heart. I love jewelry that is not just beautiful but has meaning too:-)

  171. I love your things, Lisa! My favorite is the banner bracelet that says hope. If I win, I will get another that says pray! Thanks so much for being such a great artist and hope your family has a Merry Christmas.

  172. I love the paper lanterns and the family tree necklaces. I have a slight obsession with trees because they are such a symbol of life, and the paper lanterns is a wonderfully inspired idea, as it symbolizes the lights our family members are in our lives. “You light up my life” and all that, because they do light up my life!
    Such beautiful designs!

  173. my favorite has been the teeny tiny initials of my kids, d and t! it is so cute w/ the pearl and not too overbearing .
    wishing you all a happy holiday!

  174. My favorite is the Captured Heart, which my kids gave me for Mother’s Day. I love love love that necklace!! I wear it everyday. And my second favorite would be the tiny initals necklace. I have sent many hints to my husband about that one and am pretty sure I am getting it for Christmas. (YAY!) But I want a braclet and tons of other things! Everything you do is awesome!

  175. Wow, that’s hard…there are some I really, really love, but one of my all time faves would be the “family tree” necklace! Next year I’ll move together with my boyfriend and I can’t wait to start our own little family! Family is everything! πŸ™‚
    Thanks for your generosity! Oh and merry Christmas, of course! πŸ˜‰
    Sweet December greetings from across the globe *gg*

  176. My very favorite piece is the dew drop necklace and I wear it daily. During my pregnancy, I would browse through your shop frequently trying to decide which necklace to pick. There were so many beautiful choices, it was nearly impossible! But, you came out with the dew drop design shortly after I had my first baby and I knew immediately that was the one because it had his aquamarine birthstone on it. I get so many compliments on that necklace. I just love it! Now I have my eye on those lanterns! Thanks for the beautiful jewelry, Lisa. You are so talented!

  177. I love all things bird-y. My husband gave me the sweet simple bird necklace for Christmas 08. The fly free and be still birds are also so serene and beautiful.

    Gorgeous work!

  178. The image of your “Fly Free” Necklace has been emblazoned on my mind since the first time I saw it on your website. Words cannot do justice to the emotions that piece sparked in me that day. I suppose it’s part reflective and part hopeful. Reflective because the road to where I am has not been candy coated by any means but so uniquely blessed, nonetheless. Hopeful because the promises my Lord and Savior have given me open the door to the nasty cage this world is but it’s up to me to take His hand and fly free. Seriously, the imagine of this necklace comes into my mind during some of my most triumphant moments, as well as whilst I’m struggling deeply. I do so hope to one day own it for myself! A Merry Christmas to you and I pray you are blessed richly!

  179. I love, love, love the family tree necklace! So simple, yet special. With a gift certificate, I would buy one for me (finally!) and one for my best friend. Thank you for such a generous giveaway. Merry Christmas!

  180. I love, love, LOVE the Dream a Little Bigger banner bracelet. I’ve always been a day-dreamer and a girl with big dreams. And it’s something I tell my middle school students almost daily– to dream big.

  181. I love so many of your pieces, Lisa. I purchased my first piece which has the “wishberry blossom” as my daughter refers to it (dandelion) with her name on it. I went in with a friend of mine and ordered my daughter the “Lil’ Lady” necklace for Xmas last year. It is adorable. She was a micro-preemie and I used to refer to her as my beautiful ladybug because she only weighed 1 pund 9 ounces. Instead of flowers after a friend from elementary school lost her 12 year old son, we ordered her a necklace with his name on it. She loved it and it is something she can always have to honor him. We are awaiting the arrival of a necklace for “Nana” for Xmas this year with the grandchildren’s initials on it. Your pieces are so precious and so thoughtful. They really touch the heart!!! : ) Lisa from VA

  182. My VERY favorite is the Mama necklace! Being a mother is one of the best gifts God has given me (my hubby is another). I adore my children and that necklace says so much.

  183. I love the “my heart” necklace. Such a sweet and simple quote….perfect for a best friend, mom, sister, or special child in your life. I love all the simple, yet eloquent creativity in your art.

  184. I love just about everything you make. My favorites are the Mama necklace, the tiny initials necklace, tiny hearts necklace, friend necklace, paper lanterns, wish (old style), and your new loved necklace.
    They are all so special and the handmade quality is their charm!

  185. The custom pieces I have ordered from you are my very favorite. So many wonderful compliments I have received! Thank you for all that you do.

  186. I would love to have The Original Necklace with my kids’ names on it. I have two pieces of yours and they’re the only necklaces I wear. Just love them!!

  187. Oh, I adore so many of your pieces. I especially like the ones on which you can include the names or initials of each person in the family. My most important work right now is that of Mama to three young children and I try my hardest to embrace the “brave lovely bliss” of it all!

    I have been admiring your pieces for some time now, but have not been able to order. Maybe Santa could bring something!

    I would LOVE to win the giveaway. Fingers crossed!

  188. I think my favorite, at the moment, is the “You Are Loved” necklace. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for seven years and just recently we decided to start going through infertility procedures. It’s been discouraging and depressing and sometimes it’s easy to forget that we’re trying to have a baby because we love each other. This necklace would be the perfect reminder for me to remember that he really does love me.

  189. I love the Sweet Sister necklace b/c I have a sweet sister of my own. And the Fly Free necklace as well – makes me think of someone very special I lost in May. You do beautiful work.

  190. Lisa-I love all your jewelry but the piece that speaks to me the most now is the new paper lantern necklace. My daughters are adopted from China so the lanterns remind me of the beautiful country of their birth.

  191. I love the captured heart necklace because my 3 children have done just that! I told my husband I wanted one for Christmas so we’ll see!!!

  192. There are so many pretties to choose from. My favorites(right now) are the dew drop necklace and the leaf ornament…There is something so peaceful about the dew on blades of grass,flowers, tree etc in the morning. It is like a little surprise or something. I do not own it but, maybe one day I will. I have your aqua and pearl earrings though. So either would be a great to wear with the dew drop necklace! The leaf ornament is just so pretty and organic. I had planned on ordering some for gifts but, time slipped away from me and the budget is smaller this year! Happy Holidays! πŸ™‚

  193. I love the entire Inspired line, but the one that speaks most to me is “Be Still”. Those two words invoke peace in my spirit, take me right to Psalms 46:10, lift my eyes, and remind me whose hands my life is truly in and how capable they are!!! It is a beautiful piece!

  194. There are 3 of your necklaces that I like. I love your new one – so much wrapped up in one word, “loved”. I also like your friendship necklace. As I get older (well I’m only 42 πŸ™‚ I am more and more thankful for good friends. The family crest one probably has more significance now than ever. Many things are so changeable in life, but family is ALWAYS family.
    Hope you have time to relax over the holidays. Have always been inspired reading your blog.
    Jen

  195. I love all of the pieces that I have ordered, both for myself and for gifts. But my favorite right now is the leaf ornament I ordered for my 4 year old nephew, Cayton LEIF. I had it stamped with his name and his birthdate. I’ve attached a note in the box for it to hang on his tree every year and then on his wedding day – I would love for it to be in his Bride’s bouquet for her “something old”. I thought that would be extra special.

    Merry Christmas LISA LEONARD DESIGNS crew!

  196. so hard to choose as your jewelery is so beautiful, but i would say the be still necklace is a favorite of mine. esp. now as there is much happening in my life at this time and need that reminder.

    thank you for the chance πŸ™‚

  197. I can’t even tell you how many of YOUR contests I enter because I am hoping one day to finally win! Ha! Your jewelry is AMAZING! I think that LOVED necklace is one of the greatest! But I like so many! I like the cherish necklace and the be still necklace! All the ones for mothers and families are awesome as well. I’ve seen ALOT of custom made jewelry online and I’ve NEVER seen any that I like as much as yours! Keep being inspired!

  198. my fav is the open curcle necklace> I just ordered it with my husband and kids name on it. I cant wait to get this..This will be my daily reminder to take care of myself and make me be the best I can be for the ones that love me most!!

  199. I don’t have just one favorite, I love them all but my first purchase was the circle necklace with love….x o

  200. girl….that is just so hard to pick a favorite…seriously have you seen your stuff??? πŸ™‚ that is a toss up between the banner bracelet, and the lantern necklace. i am dreaming of one of those. Hoping my husband ordered…. thanks for you inspiration

  201. Pick just one favourite??? Not possible, my absolute favourite thing is probably the baby spoon, so simple and charming (and as soon as we start our family – I’ll be ordering a collection of them!!!). I love the ‘Loved’ pendant and the customizable ring, oh…soooo many favourites!!!!!

    Merry Christmas! and yeah for getting your pictures and stuff off your mac!

  202. I LOVE the family crest because of the symbolism of family- which is so important to me. It is hard to pick a favorite as all of them are SO amazing. I hope I win- it would be a great birthday present as my birthday is in just a few days!! Yay! xoxo

  203. my favorite necklace is… the one i am giving emiile for christmas, with her word “immeasurable.”
    i hope it will be a reminder to her always of God’s immeasurable love. that she will be reminded to have and live in confidence that his love is higher, wider, deeper, longer, than she can grasp or imagine. i CAN’T WAIT to see the expression on her face when she opens it!

  204. Where would I start? I love everything! You have such thoughful and inspirational jewelry….how could I choose just one? Each piece means some thing totally different to each person who sees it. There is surely a heart touching story for every piece you ship out!

  205. Hey Lisa! I have put your designs on my Christmas list this year, I love so many…and actually your loved piece would be one of my favs!! the others are the necklaces with initials so I can have my sweet kiddos next to my heart in a tangible way…and hubby too! it’s the kind of thing that makes you smile when you’re looking in the mirror…even on a bad day!

  206. My favorite is the little feet necklace. I love that it says “lucky mama”. My husband and I tried and tried to get pregnant and suffered a miscarriage. We were told that DH would never have children of his own, but that wasn’t good enough for us. We kept trying and now we have a beautiful 8 month old daughter. We know how lucky we are and count our blessings everyday! All of your jewelry just speaks to me but I really love that one.

  207. Lisa-My favorite is the “sweet sister” necklace. I am the lucky sister to two younger sister and they are my everything! There is nothing I wouldn’t do for them or to protect them. I LOVE being a sister! It really expresses everything sisters are and should be!

  208. My favorite is the sweet sister necklace I received from my sister for my birthday. We have grown closer over the years, despite being so far apart (our husbands are in the military) and have become each other’s best friend. I wear this necklace almost every day. Shhh…she’s getting one for her birthday next fall.

  209. Your new necklace is beautiful. I had ordered the “lucky mom” necklace and changed it to “a blessed mom”. I feel blessed to have been able to be a mom. I wear this necklace all the time and have received so have received many compliments… keep creating, your work is beautiful!

  210. my favorite is the family tree necklace. i think the design is beautiful and i’d love something that included the names of *all* of our little family. i also really love the open circle bracelet. i’d like to get it someday and have it engraved with the names of our two children. love your website, lisa! so sweet and inspiring!

  211. i love your new necklace! the ‘loved’ idea is so great!! it amazes me you have such a vast, creative line and you can still think of new ideas for pieces that are lovely! i think your work is truly beautiful, ‘loved’ is my favourite piece to day – it warms my heart and i would love to be wearing it right now to get me through the rough oliday season. keep up the good work, i enjoy it immensly.

  212. My favorite necklace is the wishing flower with my two boys names on it that my husband surprised me with for our anniversary. I showed him a picture of the piece and he went on line, found the site and ordered – every time I wear it I think of how blessed I am. I think everyone should own a piece of your jewelry and feel a little bit of the love you are spreading around. πŸ™‚

  213. I love my little squares necklace. It has three squares, one for each of my three sons’ names. My youngest son died when he was 6 months old and his square has tiny little baby feet on it, because he will always be my baby. It’s perfect and I always get TONS of compliments on it! My best girlfriend just adopted a baby and if I win I will shower her and her new daughter with some new lovely jewelry (and maybe get myself something new too!)!

  214. Hi Lisa,

    My daughter introduced me to your website and I abolutely love your jewelry. The captured heart necklace would be my favourite. Your family is beautiful.

  215. the sweetheart tree necklace is my fav, a c+n would look so perfect and sweet… I would love to give my cousin on of the mom necklaces she just became a mom this year and so deserves it!

  216. I love all of the items that you make.
    My favorites are the friendship one that I would love to give to my friend Katy (and one for myself of course) πŸ™‚ She is my neighbor and kindred spirit. That is why i love it!
    I also love the tree stump one – reminds me of my husband and i dating in high school/college.
    There are so many others!
    Thank you for this chance to win the gift certificate!
    Your jewelry rocks! πŸ™‚

  217. I love my open circle bracelet. I have both of boys’ name on it. It’s so unique. I also love the tiny initials necklace. It has my boys’ initials on them. I love the fresh water pearl accent on your pieces. It really sets them off. I would go crazy with a gift certificate!! There are so many of your pieces that I would love to have and to give away as gifts!!

  218. My favorite is the tiny tags necklace with both my boys names on it. I wear it all the time. I just recently paired it with the fresh water pearl earrings – the perfect set!

  219. My favorite necklace that I own is the simple tag necklace with my son’s name inscribed on in. I would love to win the giftcard and purchase my mom, sister, and I matching “loved” necklaces. Our family has gone through many trying times this holiday season and I would love to be able to give them a piece that would mean so much to them. They truly are loved.

  220. HOPE… although each and every one of your pieces of jewelry is beautiful and has some special meaning to it my favorite is the HOPE necklace. Having a family member recently fighting the battle against breast cancer this necklace is such a beautiful reminder not to ever stop having faith or give up hope… hoping someday there will be a cure for this awful disease. I would love to be able to give this necklace to her.

    Equally a favorite is the hugs and kisses necklace. I would love to be able to give this necklace to my two daughters who are 14 and 18 so they always have a hug and a kiss from me close to there heart. They are my world.

    Happy Holidays,

    Michele

  221. one of my favorites is the sparkle necklace with the star. my sister-in-law wore it all the time and when she passed away last december it was given to me. it now hangs around my neck almost daily and is a sweet reminder of one of the greatest, strongest women i have ever had the privileged of knowing πŸ™‚

  222. I have to pick ONE? The family tree is so special, but I also love anything with initials. The monogram and initial ones are beauties too. Love your jewelry!

  223. My fave is the key to my heart necklace. Has special meaning as in our wedding vows, I stated that I was giving my husband the key to my heart.

  224. I actually love your new “loved” necklace. That seems like the kind of gift that would make you feel special everytime you put it on.

  225. I think my favorite piece is your Christmas ornament. Christmas is such a special time for me, not even counting my birthday or my wedding anniversary, lol. It’s the look on my daughter’s face and everything that Christmas embodies and you can feel that and be reminded of that in an ornament.

  226. For me, laundry line, hands down! it’s one those things that have a “special” meaning around here, it just makes me smile. you are very talented, and your pieces touch so many hearts. that’s what makes them so special. thanks for the giveaway.

  227. Oh WOW! This IS a great giveaway! Thanks so much Lisa! I love like every single one of your neckelaces, but I think my 2 favorites are the laundry line and the true hearts. I really want one with my son’s name and I am having a new baby boy in March and I want his name on it too! I think that will be so fun to have their names on a necklace….it’s a reminder that I do everything I do for my boys!

  228. a couple of years ago, after my son was born with down syndrome, i bought one of your necklaces that says “find joy in the unexpected.” and it’s been my mantra every since! thanks so much for entering me in your gracious giveaway! merry christmas to you and your lovely family.

  229. Well, my favorite piece that I own is the fly free necklace. It’s just so darn cute! But my new favorite piece (that I don’t own) is either the jumble of charms necklace or the paper lantern necklace. I am expecting twins & I can’t wait to get one of those with their names on it!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

  230. I have always loved your teeny-tiny initials. They are at the top of my wish list. So if I’m lucky enough to win a gift certificate, I’ll definitely be getting my necklace with 4 initials for my little ones. πŸ˜‰

  231. My favorite will always be the teeny tiny initials necklace. I chose this necklace instead of a mother’s ring, this way I can always have my children close to my heart. Very rarely am I wearing anything else and I get so many compliments on it. Love it!!! Thank you Lisa.

  232. My favorite is the teeny tiny initials necklace. I asked my husband to get it for me for Christmas and I love the idea of wearing something everyday that reminds me of the 3 greatest accomplishments in my life, my kids. It is beautiful without being cheesy, flashy and in your face. Thank you for designing it so simply. πŸ™‚

  233. My favorite is the petite original. Every time I look at it it reminds me of my four children. How blessed I am to have such a wonderful family and life!!!

  234. I absolutely love everything but right now I really love the Open Circle Bracelet. I love the shape and the fact that it can be personalized. I have spent time thinking about what I might put on this beautiful piece. So fun!!

  235. My favorite is the sisters necklace. I’m the oldest of three. This past year, my middle sister has suffered through the ordeal of a rare form of salivary gland cancer, and her first surgery was the day after my mother passed away. We’ve had to really pull together this year, and many times our faith has been tested, but God has supplied the grace. Sometimes, getting along can be a bit trying since we all have our own opinions and ideas, but beneath it all is the fact that we know and understand how we are, and through it all, we love each other.

  236. My favorite “Be Still”. I wear it almost everyday even under my scarves. It is a daily reminder for me – Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God”. God has constantly sent reminders to me over the past year to rest and listen for Him to “be still”. So when I saw this necklace many months ago I told my husband I had to have it. I ordered it and I love it! And Lisa I receive so many wonderful comments and send people to your website. Thank you! Merry Christmas! Ann in Indy!

  237. I can’t just pick one!! I love so many! I’m really hoping for the jumble of charms necklace…I asked for it for Christmas. It is so much fun.

    Thanks for the chance at an awesome giveaway!
    Theresa

  238. Beautiful yet again. This “loved” necklace is now one of my favorites, along with the “open circle” necklace. I would love to bless someone with one of these. Thanks!

  239. While it is almost impossible to pick a favorite…mine might have to be the “be still” necklace. I struggle with anxiety and worry and trusting the Lord with His plan and not my own. This necklace is an excellent reminder of Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God” I often just need to take a deep breath and be reminded that He is in control despite the circumstances I am facing.

  240. My favorite used to be the lantern necklace, or maybe the bird flying out of the birdcage, but now the i am loved necklace is vying for favorite. It makes me think of the art of Grandma Layton. In elementary school we wrote letters to her and she sent each of us back a postcard with a handwritten note on the back. I still have mine.

  241. This time, because I love everything that you have created, I would have to say that I truly am in love with the leather cuff bracelet for men. This would look really nice on my fiancΓ© and I think it has a message worth stating for everyone else to see. It’s masculine, but still has undertones of vulnerability to it, which send a message to anyone who would see it. I think that your work is definitely heartfelt and beautiful!

  242. Oh my. I don’t think I could narrow it down without lots of debating. I love the charm bracelet! I also love the jumble of charms necklace. We are pregnant with our fifth kid (probably the last one!) and I would love a way to keep their names close to my heart. We lost our third child, a son named Hollis, to SIDS at 3 months old, so I am ALWAYS looking for ways to include him and his memory in our lives. Thanks so much. This is such a generous giveaway!!

  243. If you knew me, you would know that it is impossible for me to pick a favorite necklace!!!! That is a major hangup of mine. I cannot make a decision to save my soul. Your necklaces are all unique & lovely. I would be thrilled to have any of them!!!!

  244. i own the family tree necklace and love it because it reminds me of what i am, a mommy. i just have my kids’ names on it. it reminds me what my life is all about. as far as other pieces i would like to add to my collection {i have an initial necklace as well} i could really add any piece and it would thrill me. the laundry line, the lanterns…just to name a few.

  245. My favorite is the sweet simple bird necklace I got last year. It is just that: sweet and simple. I get so many compliments on it and it goes with just about everything. Love it!

  246. My favorite piece is the teeny tiny initials. I love my boys initials around my neck , especially now that they are teenagers. I believe that they would be embarrassed by one of the “typical Mommy necklaces”. I love my necklace and wear it often. Also, my older son is diabetic, so thank you for supporting his cause.

  247. My favorite piece is the Itty Bitty Hearts necklace because it is the first piece I ever saw of yours (in a magazine) and it lead me to your beautiful website full of other amazing creations and your wonderful blog. I’m so glad I picked up that magazine!

  248. $250?! my, that is generous! i just love the large initial necklace and bracelet. i have the original necklace with my daughter’s name on it and wear it almost everyday! i also have the cream freshwater pearl earrings and just love them!!! crossing my fingers that i win! ; )

  249. My favorite is the captured heart necklace. The one with the gold oval and the silver heart. I have my sons names on it. I really love wearing it. I have gotten more compliments on that necklace than anything I’ve ever worn. I see so many other pieces that I would like to have. My wish list is growing. All of your jewelry is adorable : )

  250. Wow, My favorite was the fly free necklace, but my husband started buying me ‘loved’ jewelry several years ago and always had to have it customized as everyone was into just ‘love’ ….how awesome…I would use the gift card to buy this new necklace and some earrings! I LOVE your earrings!

  251. I like many pieces and hope someday I can buy some. They are beautiful!!
    The favourite for me is the paper lantern necklace. It is simple and joyful and hides some party-time in there. πŸ™‚

  252. Oh my, all your work is beautiful. Everytime I see something newu have spotlighted I love it but I thnk the Loved one is my fave right now. This is such a wonderful giveaway, I would buy a loved necklace for me, my mother who lives in europe and myself to know that love that we all share and that we are loved….

  253. I love all your work, but my favourite is the friendship necklace. I would love to give one to my sister (who lives over the ocean) & my two best friends, one I have known for 25 years, through love, loss, marriage, kids etc & the other who came across another ocean 15 years ago to live near us! And one for me to bind us all!

  254. My (current) favorite is the friends necklace. I have some amazing friends in my life, and I would love to be able to get them all a necklace to show them how much they mean to me!

  255. I love the friendship necklace. I would love to give it to my best friend, my mom. She is amazing and has been my best friend throughout my entire life. She is the one I told my first kiss about, the one I talked to when I was let down and the one who encouraged me to get through school. She has always believed in me and I think that’s exactly what a best friend should do. . .

  256. How can I pick one? I dont usually wear jewlery, but this I would consider! πŸ™‚ I love the opportunity to make something just I have, and I think I need one that says “muffin” haha. πŸ™‚ Yeah, I do.

    I found your blog a short while back and i’ve been checking in here every so often since. I really like your blog nad the design is just the sweetest. Are those flowers forgetmenot? My fave. πŸ™‚

  257. You’ve got so many BEAUTIFUL pieces!! I truly love your open circle pendant, and I’d love it with my daughter’s name, my soon to be born son’s name, and a heart (or something special) in between those for a baby that we lost. It would be a truly special piece! πŸ™‚

    ~Tabitha

  258. My favorite is this one! I love the “you are loved necklace,” it reminds me that I am loved by family, friends, and ultimately the God of the universe!

  259. I own the “wish” necklace, one of my favorite pieces. It reads “soli deo gloria,” which means “to God alone be the glory.” I chose that because I will be returning to Mercy Ships in January to serve as a nurse in West Africa, and I know on the hard days I will need that reminder of my purpose. I’ve worn it daily since it came in the mail several weeks ago and it’s been a comforting reminder that all of the goodbyes, packing, and moving are worth it.

  260. I have the tiny squares necklace with the names of my girls on each of the squares, and I love love LOVE it! I get sooooo many compliments on it and people always want to know where I got it. My girls are 1 and 3, and this time in my life, although hectic and crazy and nuts, is the BEST! I really try to treasure every moment — even the mundane, tearful, and snotty ones — because I know it goes by fast and soon my girls will be grown. My adorable necklace will always be here to remind me of these wonderful and crazy days!

  261. You create such beautiful, meaningful pieces! My fiance ordered the large link charm bracelet for me for Christmas since I’d been hinting about it for a while! Another one of my favorites is the “you are loved” necklace, I would love to get it for my mom (we’re going through a difficult time and I know it would mean so much). The “friendship” necklace would be wonderful for my two closest friends for all of the love and support they’ve given me & my family past and present…

  262. Oh my … what a giveaway!!! I do love this new one, simple and sweet … but I think my favorite two (that are one my wish list … I already have 2 pieces from you) are the laundry line necklace and the bird necklace :).

    Happy Holidays!

  263. My favorite Lisa Leonard piece – the large link bracelet. I am giving to myself and my sister this Christmas. She’s had a terrible year in all ways. I want her to have a little reminder on her wrist that I am pulling for her and we are “linked” together. I want a reminder myself, so i can keep her in my prayers. think she will be speechless when she opens it – it’s so sentimental. I really gave this gift a lot of thought and looked all over the internet before finding Lisa’s designs. I knew they were perfect right away. For her birthday I think she’ll get the matching pearl earrings – they are so lovely.

  264. all your stuff is just beautiful- I would be overjoyed to win some of it!! I love the mama necklace and the loved necklace- both would be a reminder of just how blessed I am. The Lord is good. Thanks!

  265. hmmmm. . .so many i love. (: but one i’m dreaming for– is the ‘I hold your heart in mine’ necklace. . .love it– or the XOXO one for my kindred spirit friend in Cali.
    merry christmas!!!!

  266. I love all the pieces but especially the “key to my heart” necklace! Every time I see it – I smile and think of how much I would like to buy it! I’m saving up πŸ™‚

  267. I love all your pieces, 250.00! that is a big gift!! I would give my SIL’s necklaces with their kids names on it and one for my mom (grandma) with all the grandkids names on it πŸ™‚

  268. Your mother’s day necklace is the one that gets me.. my husband and I are battling infertility and I’ve promised myself that when we do get pregnant, that necklace will be my gift to myself, the way that I start to really feel like a mom. Thanks for the chance.

  269. Wow! How generous of you. That gives me the warm fuzzies, but wait that could be the Peppermint Hot Chocolate working its yummy magic :). My fave piece is the family crest, I do really like the Laundry Line (like the one Lizzy Kartchner has) but it is just myself and my 3yo son. Kind of a lame laundry line (but less laundry IRL – haha).

    Family Crest reminds me of the time I spent in Ireland with my sick grandfather when I was just pregnant with my son. My grandad proudly displayed a hand-drawn/painted by him in WWII family coat of arms above his bed. He used to say that all who had passed before him would bring him to heaven safely and simply.

    Have a wonderful, happy and safe holiday season.

  270. My favorite is the family tree necklace. I gave it to a friend when she and her husband adopted their eighth child. My friend loves her kids with all her heart.

  271. I like the “be still” necklace beacuse it is simple and so, so sweet. It is a a whisper from the Father that I need to be attetive to especially in the daily business of raising children. Your work is beautiful and speaks to me soul.
    ~Julie K

  272. I love them ALL!!! Ordered 3 for Christmas gifts….Fly Free, Wishes, and Captured Heart necklaces. But my fav right now is the paper lanterns necklace, special because my daughter was born in China. Planning to buy it for myself after the holidays. Thanks for the opportunity to win a gift certificate!

  273. love love it all! But if I had to pick one it would be the sweet birdie necklace. My husband got it for me for valentines and whenever I wear it I always get compliments.

  274. I LOVE the “Hope” necklace b/c it doesn’t favor a certain color ribbon and there are many charities that are close to my heart that use the ribbon symbol…so this is something that brings so much hope to so many…the whole year through.

    The other one is the “Be Still” one as I feel like I am being forced to be patient when my mind is ready to move on to the next step in my life…a husband and kid….however, the husband part seems to be a challenge…and I do want kids in my life…so I am having to be still to see what will happen.

  275. Oh my gosh! You have a million comments on here!!! πŸ™‚ It is seriously difficult to choose a favorite, like many people said, but I do love this new one A LOT!!!

  276. The captured heart necklace is my favorite. I got it as an anniversary present this year. It’s a gentle reminder that my husband and sons are never far from me. No matter what kind of day I’m having I can look down and have an instant reminder that I am loved and people in this world believe in me. And really, is there any greater gift than that?

  277. I LOVE the be still necklace, which I already have:) and I am now in love with the new “loved” necklace. I also love the Friend Flower necklace which I would love to give to my best friend. I just really adore all of your jewelry. Thanks for the chance to win!

  278. How is it possible to pick one favorite? I love them all and wish I could afford each and every one. Good luck to all!

  279. Ohhhhh I LOVE EVERYTHING OF YOURS! So hard to pick one but I have to say, my itty bitty hearts are precious and mean so much to me – I have one heart per child. Thank you for the opportunity to win a gift certificate what a nice holiday treat!

    Merry Christmas!

  280. What a great giveaway. I absolutely love all your jewelry. My favourite(canadian spelling) is the family tree that I purchased for my friend Tanya. She will love love it, especially because it has all her wonderful family names on it. I can’t wait to give all the other items that I ordered from you. Have a wonderful Christmas with your beautiful family!!!!

  281. I can’t choose a favorite, and that’s probably the reason I haven’t ordered one of your pieces yet, but your jewelry is my favorite. I love the birdie one and the tiny hearts, and the one with the flower. SO great!

  282. Wow Lisa! What a sweet giveaway…. I love your jewelry, every piece. But, any of your pieces with hearts touches me. My maiden name is Valentine, so… hearts do mean so much to me. The “forever” , or starry heart, or true love hearts, or itty bitty hearts necklaces….I would be elated to be chosen as a winner, and honored to wear your art! May you have a blessed Christmas…

  283. You created a custom piece for me a year ago when I had my second child. I wear the necklace everyday that is inscribed with the names of my children. I get so many compliments on it!

  284. Oh, the “fly free” necklace is my favorite hands down. I asked my hubby for it for Christmas! The first time I saw it on your website it brought tears to my eyes. It’s that sweet feeling you get when you know that someone else “gets it.” Someone else has been caged, and someone else flew free when Jesus opened the door. πŸ™‚ Beautiful piece of art.

  285. Sorry, I’m a little late getting my response in….. long day! πŸ™‚
    However, my VERY FAVORITE piece is the “fly free” necklace. It means so much to me on so many levels. Literally, when I saw it for the first time, all I could do was stare at it for a while. It hit home. And this is why: First, I am a Christ follower and it reminds me of what HE has set me free from. Ps. 127:4 He has set me free from the snare of the fowler! Second, I have lost a child to cancer and a mother in law in a car accident in a matter of 7 years. I could have stopped living
    (not literally) but God set me free from the life the enemy wanted me to live, instead HE has caused me to live victoriously! Third, I am very, very passionate about the Sex Slave Industry (Human Trafficking). I worked with a team of rescuers last year in India that has forever changed my life. Once your eyes are open to that horror you will never be the same. You are compelled to live in such a way to make a difference. These girls are literally in cages and are waiting on someone to set them free. Thankfully they have a Savior who holds the key!

    Anyway, as you can see, the “fly free” is not just a necklace to me, it’s a symbol. A symbol that it’s God’s will for us to live our lives free so we can set others free as well.
    Regardless if you chose me, it doesn’t matter, I wanted you to know that you have created a God inspired piece!! πŸ™‚
    Love.

  286. My favorite is the open circle necklace. I have my 3 kids names on it. It is a great reminder of them throughout my day. I also love the necklace that is a rounded square shape with a cross on it. I had Faith, Hope, Love set on it for my sister as a wedding shower present. I still with I had one of my own. Hopefully my husband will pick up on my wish and buy it for me some day. Thanks for the shot at a great giveaway!

  287. I love the sweetheart tree necklace because it makes me think of a family tree with deep roots and extended branches and how the initials of the one union is so important to everything from that point forward – we’re talking history in the making! Very generous giveaway, thank you for the opportunity to offer my thoughts.

  288. I adore the “be still” necklace. What a lovely reminder to slow down, be still and listen to our Lord. I also really like your “new you are loved” necklace ~ what a beautiful gift this would make!

  289. I own 3 of your necklaces Lisa! And, I love them all!!! They each center around my children and the love I have for them! I get complemented on them all the time. Thank you Lisa!

  290. my favourite piece is definately the open circle necklace…..I love its simple beauty, but more than anything else, I love that I can personalize it with my daughter’s unique name. I love the simplicity and organic nature of all of your pieces…you are a true artist Lisa!

  291. My favorite necklace is the family tree necklace…what better way to celebrate your family!! I love many of your necklaces, & ordered one for my mom for Christmas~can’t wait to give it to her! I love this site, and your jewelry!

  292. My fave pieces are the Jumble of Charms and Little Feet necklaces. I love jumble of charms b/c my kids are so opposite from each other and the mix of charms just fits our quirky little family. Little Feet took my breath away the moment I first saw it. My first son was stillborn 16 years ago. I have a tattoo of his sweet, Little Feet on my ankle. Every time I see that necklace I think of my sweet Christian.

  293. I can’t wait to receive my “captured heart” necklace. I’ve been wanting it for awhile. My husband ordered it for me for Christmas. Although we are trying to cut back these days..this is a special gift for me. There hasn’t been too many of those this year and to have something to wear that has my childrens names and my husbands name makes me feel so special. I’ll remember that they are always with me and it’s not what we have that matters. It’s that we have eachother. Merry Christmas!!

  294. I just ordered the Fly Free necklace for my sister, she has been very depressed and down on herself and I wanted her to be reminded daily that there is freedom in Christ Jesus. Love all of your jewelry, very special.

  295. What a beautiful piece! I adore it! I think one of the necklaces I love the most is the family tree. There’s something so sweet and magical about the names carved together… makes it perfect!

    Thanks!
    lise

  296. I love it all!! I just received the laundry line necklace a few days ago and I must say it is my favorite. I had mommy, daddy and both babies names on it. It’s beautiful and so close to my heart. My husband and I had lots of trouble having children. I even wondered if we would ever have any. After 6 rounds of fertility treatments, surgery, 3 miscarriages, and lots of praying, God has blessed our family with Emma and Drew. Its so great to get a glimpse of just how much God loves us when we look at our sweet children. God is good. Praise and Glory in the Highest!

  297. Lisa–My favorite piece is the necklace that you made in honor of David!! I still have yet to order one! I really want one because of my little Vinny! Such a common bond between us moms with kiddos with CdLS! Hugs Staci and Vinny πŸ™‚

  298. I love your jewelry. My favorite is the jumble of charms necklaces, I love how it allows for the uniqueness of each member to shine!

  299. There are two that are my favorite–Sweetheart Tree and Key to your heart.I love them because they just remind me of my love for my husband.

  300. I really like your jewelry in general… but I have to admit I have never bought any because at this time we cannot afford it. The piece that really stood out to me though was your new loved necklace because my sister has that tattooed on her foot to remind her that God always loves her even when she doesn’t feel like anyone else does. She hasn’t said so but sometimes I wonder if she has a hard time being the only one of four siblings who is still single and now she is 30. I keep praying that God will bring the right man into her life but it must be hard… so anyways that’s my reason πŸ™‚

  301. sorry…i got the name wrong in my last post. it was the open circle that i love, not the organic circle. it’s so simple, but elegant!

  302. I have one of your necklaces and I love it. I haven’t seen it for some time so I don’t think you sell it anymore. It has a round silver pendant with a matte gold flower on it (the petals are raised up) it has my children’s names on it. I love it and get so many compliments on it. I would love to have another necklace of yours and think the petite family crest and the family tree necklaces are beautiful. I love pieces that are personal to me. It also makes me happy to wear the necklace with my kids names because I feel like they are close to my heart!

  303. I love this necklace! My favorite in the square tadg with the gold flower. It has my boys names on it and makes me happy. I just ordered the banner necklace and can’t wait to wear it. I wish I could buy all of your necklaces.

  304. I Love Love Love all your pieces, they are so beautiful and unique, I have so many favourites but I really do love the MAMA design because the words are so thoughtful and true for the important and sometimes difficult role of being a Mama and also the Sweetheart Tree necklace because it is so adorable and creative!!

  305. i have so many favorites! love the dewdrops necklace, the sweet daisy and the organic circle. they are all gorgeous.

  306. I love the captured heart necklace. Such a wonderful idea to display the name/names of those special someones that capture your heart for all the world to see.

  307. The You are Loved necklace is lovely…

    If I could afford it (I can’t, unfortunately, since I lost my job last month), I would by it for my mom. My dad passed away in June, and it’s been really rough for her since then. I think a necklace like that would be a subtle and sweet reminder to her, in a few ways. We love her… her grandsons love her… and on the other side, my dad still loves her.

  308. I love my tiny tag necklace with my sons names on each one. I wear this necklace all the time and get many compliments on it.

  309. Oh my word, how on earth can I pick just one? I love the “be still” necklace, I love the “i hold your heart in mine” love the oval monogram… honestly they are all just beautiful! Would LOVE to have one to wear… might have to drop a couple of hints. Hope this Christmas Season is full of joy and peace for you and your family. Love reading your blog.

  310. Ooh, and I really like the new you are loved design… I may have to bookmark it in my husband’s list as a not so subtle hint! πŸ˜‰

  311. It’s a tie between friendship and be still. They both remind me of what and who are really important in my life. Thanks for your beautiful pictures and amazing inspiration.

  312. How do I pick a favorite?

    I absolutely LOVE my Family Tree necklace. I have gotten at least one compliment on it every time I have worn it and have had a few friends order one after having seen mine.

    I have to admit, Lisa, I didn’t want to give “my secret” away… that being your blog and jewelry! But how could I not share?

    I also have the tiny squares necklace as well as a mixed charm necklace. I can’t get enough!

    Next on my list? Cherish and/or dewdrops.

    I love the simple style and powerful messages of family and love that your jewelry evokes.

    Ahh…

  313. I have been holding out for the “jumble of charms” necklace, until our 2nd baby is delivered in January. I feel so blessed to be having a second child & can’t wait to proudly wear my babies names on one of these beautiful necklaces.We did not find out the gender of the baby, so I will have to continue waiting patiently to see what name will be joining my daughters. With the new “you are loved” necklace, it looks like I have another wiishlist item!

  314. My favorite is the mama neclace. I’m asking for this for Christmas. I teach first grade but long to be home each day with my daughter. This necklace is a reminder that I can do both, I’m trying so hard to find a balence between work and motherhood.

  315. My favourite piece would have to be my tag necklace that you have already made for me…it has the names of my children on it, and I hold (and wear!) it so dear to my heart. If I could wish for another piece, my favourite would have to be the “Be Still” necklace….it reminds me of the still, calm and peaceful mind that I need to hold onto right now. WIth a lay off pending, our family is feeling the stress – my only solace is when I pause to remember what matters most….my family. Christmas wishes to your and yours Lisa.
    xo

  316. I would love to wear your noew “loved” necklace.

    Im not sure how to say this without sounding too sappy. I grew up wihtout family and wasnt shown much love. The woman who did “raise” me told me daily that I wasnt “her people” and that she was doing me a huge favor. (irony being that we blood related) She went out of her way to make me feel unloved. Then I went to my live with my dad who went back and forth between neglectful and abusive.

    Only God could make something beautiful from my life and He has. I now have a wonderful loving husabnd and five beautiful children. I am very loved.

  317. My favorite (& only piece) is the large disc with my daughter’s name stamped on it. I wear this just about everyday to keep myself “centered”, especially on a crazy, hectic, day & as a reminder that no matter how out of control life gets I have a daughter that loves me-her mommy! I also get so many compliments on my necklace & all my friends have since ordered their special necklaces. Thanks for making such unique & beautiful jewelry!

  318. I love the new necklace “you are loved”….I would give it to my sister. She is single but I want her to know that there are so many people that love her and she will eventually find “the one”. I have the tiny squares necklace and it means so much to me because it has the names of my boys on it and they are always close to my heart when I wear it……:)

  319. My favorite piece is the “little feet necklace”. My babe has exceptionally large feet and remembering hers when they were so tiny makes my heart dance. All of these works of art are fabulous and I would be proud to own any of them! Happy Christmas to you and your family!

  320. what a wonerdful give away. thank you for bringing a little hope to my day. like many people this year, i don’t think the finances include a christmas present for mom. but if i won this, i would most definately order the jumble of charms necklace for myself. it is so beutiful. i love how like each child, each charm is different. the family tree necklace is perfect for my mom. and the loved necklace would be perfect for someone special that needs to be reminded she is very much loved by many people.

  321. I have been drooling over your jewelry for months – waiting for Christmas. I showed my husband your website and asked him to pick out something special. He chose the “Friendship” necklace. I LOVE it! I totally expected something with my son’s name or initials, but the fact that out of all the lovely necklaces you have my husband wanted me to have something to remember that I was still his best friend. We’ve faced many challenges this year – both losing our jobs, moving in with my parents, looking at our sweet child and wondering how are we going to get through this. Somehow we managed to keep the faith and our relationship has only grown deeper. The gift certificate, though, would first be used to get a necklace for me mother. She has done so much for us this year, and always! I would love to get her the new “You are Loved” necklace to let her know just how thankful and appreciative we are for her. What a generous, thoughtful give-a-way! Merry Christmas!

  322. the “i hold your heart in mine” necklace….i gave this to a friend who was in the process of losing her mother to brain cancer and she *loved* it (even though it made us cry more–it was a good cry!).

  323. “You are loved” is my favorite. It means that my partner can wear it and know that her little family are always loving her!

  324. my favorite is the family tree necklace with my name, my partner’s name and our twin boys. i wear it everyday and always get so many compliments. i received it last year for christmas. i am also looking forward to the day when i can order a new one with another child’s name on it, if we are so blessed! merry christmas lisa!!!

  325. I love my “take hope to heart” necklace that you make for incourage. It is such a simple reminder in the rush of everyday life to connect with the spiritual.

  326. I ordered the “Redeemed” necklace. I absolutely love it. I have received compliments on it every day I wear it. It is a good reminder that my Kinsman Redeemer has Redeemed me. He has called me by name and I am His!!!!!!!!!!

  327. LOVE your Open Circle Bracelet. Since having a baby son, I realized the best piece of jewelry I could wear is on my wrist. He pulls everything that is dangling on my ears or my neck! So I would LOVE to wear one of your bracelets!

  328. i love the open heart bracelet because the message is never ending and the family crest necklace since i love anything with an initial on it.! thanks for the chance to own some of your beautiful pieces!!

  329. I browsed around, and I have to say that *you are loved* is my new favorite! It’s so pretty and sweet. Now I really want to add it to my wishlist. πŸ˜‰

  330. Wow!!! I love everything you make and would be thrilled to win anything! My favorites are: the open circle necklace (one one side I would want my husband’s name, my name, and my daughter’s and on the other side, the word family) I would also get a leather cuff for my husband with the word family. I also love the aqua stone earrings.
    HOPE I WIN- I’m excited just thinking about it!
    πŸ™‚

  331. well, its hard to pick a favorite, but my newest one would have to be the friends necklace. I just think it is the sweetest gift for someone who really matters to you.

  332. Honestly all your peices mean something… but especially the one that is “loved”. When I saw this necklace I immediately thought of my mom who was diagnosed with Breast cancer in October. It has been a rough two months. She had a lumpectomy and now has found out in is in her bones. I am tearing up writing this for two reasons: it is the saddest feeling I have ever felt knowing there is a limit now on my mothers life. Second, I am not someone to just shout this to the world and let everyone know what I am going through. All I want her to know is She is LOVED, everyday and forever!!

  333. it’s hard to choose one that I like best but I think I would have to pick the “Be Still” necklace. I am a mother of three teen boys and a full time occupational therapist in a public school system plus the jewelry hobby. So… I tend to get too busy and stressed and need to remind myself often to slow down and focus on what is important. I need constant reminders. Nancy

  334. Merry Christmas Lisa and Family!!
    My very favorite necklace design is my tiny tags necklace! My 3 kids gave this to me for my birthday a year ago and I wear it almost every day. The reason why I LOVE it so much is because my older daughter B graduated in May and moved out into her apt in Sept. everyday I look at her intial several times and touch it say a quick prayer for safety for her! I just miss being in her everyday life!
    Thanks so much for this chance to win such a great prize! I’ll have a hard time choosing what to get next!!

    Love your family blog too!!

  335. The piece that means the most to me is the “itty bitty hearts neckalce”. It is the first piece that I have from your line and it was given to me by my husband on our first christmas together after we were married. I wear it often as a reminder of him while I am teaching (I teach high school English) and I get so many compliments on it from students and other staff. I just loved the piece so much that I come and read your blog as often as possible during the week as inspiration. Would love a gift certificate so that I am able to get pieces for my mom and mother-in-law, so they are able to have some of your wonderful jewelry too! Happy Holidays!

  336. My favorite piece is the the “Wish” necklace. My husband got me one with “To my wife, the one that I love” written in French. It’s absolutely my most favorite thing that I own! I wear it everyday and always get compliments on it! (And everyone is very impressed that my hubby thought of it!) πŸ™‚

    Thank you for your beautiful work!

  337. I love the Fly Free necklace! It reminds me that I am loved for just being me and am free to express myself. It reminds me that all dreams are possible and to take advantage of each day’s bright and shiny opportunities. To me this necklace reminds me to be grateful and excited about what life has to offer.

  338. My husband and I have always said we go anywhere together, even “to the moon” that will be the next thing I order, a bracelet with that inscribed. I can’t wait to see my Christmas present, a captured heart. It was sent directly to my in-laws, I am dying to see it! I also want to get something sweet and special for my best friend. She is a single mom with two little boys, she works so hard and is a constant encouragement to ME! Thank you for all of your beautiful work~

  339. At the moment, my favorite is the “little feet” necklace. I have a 2-year-old son and expecting a baby boy in March, so I will be happily surrounded by little feet! Another current favorite is the oval monogram necklace. They’re all so beautiful!

  340. Wow….I’m not sure I can pick one fave piece!! I think my NEW fave is this”you are loved” necklace! I LOVE the simplicity of it, as well as the added touch of the pearl. Wearing it would mean so much and remind a person that someone is thinking about them and caring for them.
    As I wait to welcome our second child (due in 2 short weeks), I am already trying to decide which custom-necklace I would like to get with their names on it.

  341. I love your work and refer you often. Your earrings are the perfect “what to buy a teenager?” gift! I love my necklace with my childrens’ names – mini open circles. I’d love the dewdrop necklace.

  342. my favy fav is the open circle necklace. so simple and beautiful. i love the custom necklaces & that you can put something meaningful on them to give to a special someone.

  343. I don’t know how to choose! I love everything. I really like the friendship necklace with the flowers. So sweet!

  344. I love my “open circles” necklace with my bueaties’ names on it. I wear it almost every day to keep “Isabelle” and “Emily” near my heart. My youngest has learned to spell her name and her sister’s name from it. Currently I”m partial to the friends pendant with the two sweet little flowers. And this one? Takes my breath away. Seriously! You make suce beautiful things, Lisa!

  345. I have been blessed to receive 2 of your beautiful necklaces and always direct people to your website. I have given the teach necklace to a fantastic teacher that my son had and she was thrilled to the point of tears. I would love to share the gift certificate and purcase gifts for my children’s grandmothers… they would love such a gift

  346. My favorite is the Lovebird necklace–it is the first piece of your jewelry that my husband bought for me, and I thought it was so thoughtful of him. I also love it because my 3 year old son calls me says, “Mommy is my lovebird” when he sees me wearing it, and when we see the lovebirds at the zoo he ALWAYS talks about my necklace, even if I am not wearing it.

  347. I love the “be still” necklace. The theme of my life right now is slowing down & simplifying. That necklace is so sweet & beautiful πŸ™‚

  348. Lisa,

    All of your work is so unique and special. Everytime I look at your pieces I think of many people in my life that they would just be perfect for – you are a talented artist. I recently purchased a Christmas ornament for our family and it is the first item since our son was born that has all of our names written on it – so special to see my little family’s name in print! Thank you.

  349. tiny squares necklace with my kids names on it! i get so many compliments on it! when i wear it, it reminds me of my kids when i am at work.

  350. I think my favorite is the tiny tag necklace with both my sweet boys names on it! I also have the daisy cuff with thier names as well. I just love all of your pieces have recommended them to all my friends and family…and my sister is having her first baby and it’s a girl so I ordered her a necklace as well for when she has her! Thank you I love your blog!

  351. My favourite peace is the “Cherish” necklace because it reminds me to focus on and find pleasure in the small things. I think that a lot of people (myself included) forget to do that and we would all be a lot happier if we remembered. A hot drink on a cold day, a kind word said in passing, a full moon in a cloudless sky… all small things that can brighten a day.
    When I found your blog, I loved the title!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  352. Pick a favorite? No WAY!
    I think I want one of the bird pieces next. I LOVE my pendant with my children’s names on it!
    I would also LOVE to have the bracelet I just ordered my mother in law, for myself too!!

    Thanks for the give-away!! Your the best!

  353. Having been blessed to have a few of your pieces, it is hard to pick my favorite. I also have loved giving your pieces as presents. In fact I have already given the Leaf Ornament out to the families I had them made for! Tears flowed. They all said that there was no way that they could box them up after Christmas. That they would have to find a place to display them during the year.

    I love my Dewdrops Necklace that says Seeking Peace…It has become my worry stone. I find myself rubbing it while I think. Thank you for making an amazing product that is full of love and care!

    Have an amazing Holiday Season!
    Merry Christmas!

  354. oh, the new loved necklace is running a race for my favorite!!! i love the open circle and i loooooovvve the teeny tiny initials necklace, i imagine it full of initials for all of my little duckling. mostly, lisa, i love that you create wearable emotions. beautiful. thank you for the chance at the giveaway! crossing all of my parts!!!! xo

  355. sweet lisa….. i adore your pieces and love peeking into your blog for inspiration! i’ve just placed my first order {two gifts…..a beautiful custom ornament + a precious baby spoon…& an ornament for ourselves}…I can hardly wait until they arrive & of course, to come back for more! each of your pieces are so special and my wish list is l o n g . *your designs simply bring such joy + delight!*

    i am dreaming about wearing the open circle necklace {with my children’s names} and the petite crest necklace close to my heart….a reminder of the greatest blessing of all….family.

    happy holidays to you and yours…..

  356. I absolutley LOVE my tiny square’s neckalce- it is just perfect !!! I wear it almost every day and get so many compliment’s on it . Thank’s for the chance at winning !!!

  357. I love the Mama necklace. I recently became a Mama 8.5 months ago after 5 years of infertility and various tests and procedures. Although I have not found any piece in your store that is not beautiful and wonderful. My birthday is in Jan and I have already sent my hubby to your site and showed him gift ideas.

  358. The pearl earrings were always my favorite. My 10 year old daughter found a way to get the
    for me. I love them! And now I’m favoring the loved necklace. Too many pretty things!

  359. This is a wonderful giveaway…how thoughtful and nice. I love the be still necklace…it reitorates all that my life is right now “CRAZY” and that I just need to sit and be still for a minute and take a minute for myself. I love the “you are loved necklace” also…I would love it if my husband saw it.

  360. My favorite piece is the “fly free” necklace. My previous co-workers purchased this for me as a going away gift. It symbolized me flying away… to my new (dream) job, after working with these people for almost 8 years! It really means so much. I get so many compliments on it. I pair it with my Lisa Leonard fresh pearl earrings! xo

  361. Is it possible to have 2 favorites? LOL My first favorite is the dogtag necklace – it’s the first “real” thing I had with my daughter’s name on it (we were adopting her from South Korea when my husband surprised me with it for Christmas). The second favorite is the I Hold Your Heart in Mine necklace, which we gave to her foster mother when we visited her in Korea.

  362. Oh wow what a giveaway!!
    My favrourite is the open circle bracelet and I was lucky enough to recieve one as a gift for my birthday this year. I love love love the “loved” necklace!! It’s fantastic!
    I was reading through some of the comments and one caught my eye. She had “teach. change the world” on a necklace and I LOVE that idea. I am a new teacher and what an inspiring message that would be to wear everyday.
    Thanks for the chance to win such a wonderful giveaway!!

  363. My favorite is the jumble of charms necklace, which I own. My children gave it to me for mother’s day last year and I loved it. I also gifted one of your necklaces to my daughter last Christmas. Your work is lovely.

  364. Wow, seriously, what a nice offer and chance to win! It is very difficult to pick just one, but the Be Still is one of my favorites as are the laundry line pieces. We have been going through fertility for two years in hopes to conceive another child. No luck just yet but I have faith and hope that it will happen in Gods time and that I just need to “be still” and wait for His grace to come upon me. I would where this necklace daily to remind me of my efforts and may faith in God.

  365. I did my Christmas shopping when you had the buy $100 worth, get the “Fly Free” necklace for FREE! I am so in love with it! Everyone asks about it here in Memphis, and I send them to you! If I won the gift certificate, I would get the circle with “sola fide, sola gratia, sola scriptura.”

  366. I love your website SO much and check it often!! I actually have 1 piece from you–the tiny initials and I love it so much. I get compliments on it a lot! I also recently purchased your tiny feet necklace for our neighbor who miscarried. Sometimes it is so hard to find the right words to say to someone who has lost someone–with your necklace, it made it so easy! I would love another piece or more to add to my collection and I am hoping that this year I will find another under the tree! πŸ™‚

  367. My fav one is “I hold your heart in mine” – I don’t have one of my own, but I’m bought one today to give to my daughter because her boyfriend just told her he has an incurable disease and that he’s probably got 10 years of independent living then he’ll be in a nursing home. He’s only 27! He told her to save her from any heartbreak. He told her he was breaking up with her. His father died of the same disease and he doesn’t want her to go through what his mom did. Also the prospect of fathering healthy children are slim unless an extraction of healthy sperms not displaying the diseased gene are removed…Probably gave too much information here, but the necklace I’m buying will have her boyfriend’s name on the back…I know it will have special meaning for many years to come. I’ve also given this same necklace to a friend who lost her son in a tragic boating accident 4 years ago. This boy would be the same age as my son (18)..She loves her necklace and thinks of him whenever she wears it.

  368. My favorite is the “be still” necklace. It reminds me to “be still and know that I am God”. It is always easier for me to remember this out in nature, so the reeds and little birdy are perfect. I also really like the open circle and family tree. This is my kind of jewelry–it is sweet and simple. I would LOVE a gift certificate!

  369. my favorite piece is the necklace my hubby surprised me with for mother’s day. i had found your website only a few weeks beforehand and fell in love instantly! he purchased two hearts with our kiddo’s names on them πŸ™‚

  370. I love the Jumble of Charms necklace. I want one to symbolize our growing family and I love that more charms can be added in the future. We just found out that we’re expecting our second son and as soon as we settle on his name, I’d love to buy this necklace. I also love the Open Circle bracelet.

  371. I like the fly free necklace a lot, it’s so special… And the paper lantern necklace… so sweet!
    It is really difficult to choose a favorite necklace – all of your work is really beautiful!

  372. I love the teeny tiny charm necklace because of it’s simplicity. But I have the open circle necklace and I wear it all the time. It goes with everything, and I love my children’s names on it. It helps me remember that this is my family circle right now and I need to slow down and enjoy it. There will come a day when they leave my circle to form their own.

  373. my fav is the you are loved and the my heart necklaces… my sister is going thru a very hard time with her 5 girls being taken away from her and missing holidays are hard for her but missing the girls birthdays are even harder… i try to remind her everyday that she is loved.

  374. Are you kidding? This is such a generous giveaway! I seen the “Be Still” necklace awhile back and I just love it. I lead Young Children and Worship and the song we sing to get prepared to hear God’s Word is “Be Still and know that I am God”. I love that reminder “Be Still”.
    Smiles!

  375. I love the piece my sister gave me. It is the “sister” one but I got it to say, “him whom my soul loves” and the inner ciricle says my husbands name “john”. I love it and get tons of compliments on it. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this certificate so I could get my three sisters and I a Loved necklace or something to share. There are 4 of us really close in age and I’ve been wanting to do this for some time but just don’t have the money to do it. So maybe, just maybe, I’ll win and I could do it πŸ™‚ Here’s hopin’ and prayin’!

  376. I received the tiny squares necklace for my birthday this year. It has my children’s names on it and it makes me feel so proud and loved! The simple pearl reminds me of the baby we miscarried so I love that I will always have all of my babies close to my heart!

  377. The Hope Necklace, my mother was just diagnosed with early stage breast cancer..and I have HOPE she will be a breast cancer survivor.

  378. lisa…
    what a generous giveaway! i love any and all of the pieces with bird(s)! they represent so much freedom and healing to me. i LOVE the key necklace…so unique and fun! and of course, i love anything that can wear my children’s and husband’s name…..for they are the love of my life!

    thanks for sharing your gift with one of us! how special!

  379. i love so many of your pieces. i love the family tree and the tiny hearts — i’ve given both as gifts in the past. i would love a petite crest for myself and the wish necklace, the fly bird and several others…

  380. I love the wish necklace — its always nice to be reminded of your wishes. I also like the friendship necklace. It would be a great way to show my best friend how much she means to me.

  381. My favorite has always been the cuff bracelette with the family names on it and the little pearl…I have collected name bracelettes from the 1920’s and earlier…they were sterling silver and families added a link with an engraved name for each member of the family. And I loved the history of them and daydreaming about who they could have been so the idea of having one of my own in a more modern style has always thrilled me!! One of these days I will own one!!!

  382. Hi Lisa…

    I just got a delivery from you today with 3 custom necklaces that I ordered. I just wanted to say THANK YOU! Each one is so lovely. I knew I would love them… but seeing them in person is even more special. I can’t wait to give them away for Christmas. What a meaningful gift to share.

  383. It’s so SO hard to pick just one thing…. I love the monogram necklace… And the ity bitty hearts necklace and I would add 3 A’s and an R on it… for my little girls and husband… And then there is the ‘you are loved’ necklace… Too hard to choose…..

    I love your blog and wish I could take pictures like you!! πŸ™‚

  384. one of my favorites would be the friendship necklace. the taller flower makes me think of my bestest friend…even though we don’t see or talk to each other as much as i like, i can know that she’s always there, ready to be my shelter in the storms of life.

    if i win, i’m getting that for her.

  385. It’s way too hard to choose…..I’ve tried a lot, whether for gifts to other people….or myself as I can’t resist when I’m ordering to treat myself !!! However, my two tone daisy (limited edition πŸ™ and open circle have to be my favourites…….I”m still waiting for you to start selling the sweet daisy ring !!!! Thank you for making gift choosing easy…

  386. WOW…what an amazing giveaway!!! I adore all of your pieces but I do have a few favorites. You Are Loved is such a perfect statement for a mother or anyone who is lucky enough to be loved. This piece is a new favorite as well as Dewdrops, I love the little stone and pearl. The shape of the dewdrop says peaceful to me, such a beautiful piece. I also love Itty Bitty Hearts, perfect to add my two girls initials on and keep close to my heart. Thank you for this amazing gift you are offering! xo

  387. Lisa, you are so very generous. I ordered a custom design for a friend going through a rough spot and it comforted her…she never takes it off. You make lovely stuff.

    I think my favorite piece is the “Be Still” necklace. Reminds me of “…be still and know that I am God.” I need that reminder every day.

  388. Although I love a lot of your pieces, I keep coming back to the “XO” necklace that I first spied, I don’t know, several months ago. The bird flying free of the cage is wonderful too, probably because of where I am in life. Love all your jewelry!

  389. Lisa, I love your designs & your blog. My sister attended your church in SLO while she attended Cal Poly and that is how I first heard of your wonderful work! I’ve admired the family crest necklace for a while, but now that the Lord has blessed us with a little one on the way, I think the tiny initials necklace would be perfect to start off our family tree πŸ™‚ Thanks for the great giveaway!

  390. I love the cherish necklace so much. I am a passionate person and love is all you need. What a generous giveaway. ThanksLisa

  391. i would have a hard time choosing between the fly free necklace and the sweet and simply birdie necklace – they are both so gorgeous! i have a dire lack of pretty necklaces, and any of your beautiful creations would fit the bill wonderfully.

    wishing you and your lovely family happy holidays…

    xoxo

  392. favorite? are you kidding…too difficult to choose. this new piece is lovely…it reminds me that i am loved by jesus. amen!

  393. I love the simplicity and symbolism of the Be Still necklace. It reminds me that the only way to growth & freedom is through time with our Father.

  394. My current favorite is your sister necklace, which i just ordered for my hubby to give me for my birthday πŸ™‚ i like it with “grace” in the center circle because i am known, understood and loved by the Lord and without His grace..well, you know…so many I love, though..it’s always a hard decision to choose!!

  395. My favorite is the laundry line necklace! It was love at first sight for me!!
    …I really like the loved necklace! So simple yet so beautiful!
    Lisa, you inspire me everyday! Love your blog! xo

  396. I love my square necklace with star pendant that says “imagine” – it reminds me to open my imagination every day. πŸ™‚

  397. My all-time new favorite (is that an oxymoron?) is the beautiful ‘cherish’ necklace with the heart and the teeny diamond. I would choose the word love just as you did – because i truly believe that everything can be accomplished if it is done with love. I work with children in church, and even those that have problems and cause us problems are much easier to deal with when they are treated with love. That’s what it’s all about for me.

    And this is a lovely necklace!

  398. Oh my gosh if I won, that would be so hard to choose. But I do have a favorite:) its the one with the dandielion, the wish one. Oh how I love that. It reminds me of my little girl blowing on one and telling me to wish. Hope I win.
    Have a great day Lisa, hope you are feeling better

  399. I LOVE my Oval Monogram Necklace….I am a walking advertisement for Lisa Leonard Designs when I wear it! People are constantly asking where I got it. My response “It’s a Lisa Leonard!” (of course!)
    I would be happy to advertise with a few more potential favorites if I am the gift certificate winner. I lost one of my freshwater pear earrings (tragic!) So, I would love to replace those, too! Pick me please!

  400. I have two of your pieces: the “mama necklace” and a “family ring”…they are my prized possessions (next to my babes, of course!).

    I would love to buy the clothesline necklace – it’s so a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e! I LOVE it!

  401. I really love them all. My favorite is either the “loved” necklace or the open circle with my two daughters names engraved. My husband gave me the open circle as a gift when I gave birth to our second daughter 9 months ago. Very meaningful to me. πŸ™‚

  402. I don’t think its possible to pick just one favorite. I love the jumble of charms necklace knowing it would keep all the names of the people I love the most close – and I love the You are Loved necklace – and I love the Cherished necklace – and …. you get the idea. You do the most beautiful work.

  403. I have the family tree necklace with my three boys on it-priceless-I love it! I kind of like the new loved necklace too!

  404. I have been coveting the open circle necklace for months!!!! I blogged about it on our family blog and I also entered the design mom contest in the small chance that i might win it! i checked the design mom blog probably 50 times on the day she was supposed to announce the winner. Sadly, i didn’t win. The odds were pretty slim with 897 comments!!! I even kept checking it in the chance that maybe the girl hadn’t claimed it in time… but she did.

    I just had a baby three months ago today and would really really really love to have this necklace with his name on it. We tried for a couple years to have a baby and was finally able to get pregnant with fertility treatments. Both my husband and I are only children and my husband was adopted, so having his own baby – someone that he’s actually related to by blood – has meant the whole world to us. I actually asked for this necklace for Christmas from my husband but things are really tight and so I retracted the request so that we could buy gifts for our extended family. I really would love to get this necklace! It would mean so much to me and it’d be something I would wear every day! I love its simplicity and understated elegance. I wouldn’t want anything else for Christmas with this lovely necklace around my neck!

    Thanks for this opportunity!!!

  405. My favourite is the fly free necklace as I have a small disability and since I have, with God’s help, changed my attitute to it, I have been able to fly free.

  406. My favorite will ALWAYS be the first piece I got. A “word of the year” necklace. Personalized with my word of the year, Gratitude. It is my constant reminder of just how glorious my life is!!

  407. I have so many favorites! But, the piece I would love to have the most is the itty bitty hearts necklace w/my husband’s and newborn son’s initials. You are so talented and I WILL have one of your pieces one day:) Guess I better fwd your site to my husband. LOL

  408. i really like the laundry line. i’ve never been a fan of the birthstones of your kids on your jewellry idea – you know the 70’s ones straight from the Sears catalogue – and i’ve kind of dismissed the jewellry with names along with it… but I love your stuff. my husband has been wondering what to get me for Christmas I know where I’m sending him to shop.

  409. i really like the simplicity of this necklace, and the message is one everyone could stand to be reminded of by feeling it move on their neck during each day.

    that gift certificate would give me the ability to shower the people i love with love–could there be a necklace in there somewhere?–and it would be a great blessing to win it.

    love this work of your heart that God has placed in your path. you’re doing a wonderful thing; keep at it.

  410. I love the single tag key chain, especially with the word “believe” on it. So inspiring and something I could easily give to my husband that he would see everyday. Thanks!

  411. I love the “Tiny Squares” necklace with my kids’ names on them… got it for my first Mother’s Day after my 2nd child was born (in April.) It meant alot that my hubby did something like that for me so quickly since we didn’t know the gender/name of my son until he was born!

  412. I love one that my sister got a couple years ago when her son was born…two silver boxes with his name and his sisters names with a fresh-water pearl. I actually love pretty much everything!!

  413. I love your dewdrop necklace and many others…..it is very hard to pick a favorite! Thanks for sharing your life with us.

  414. My current favorites are the Banner necklace and the Fly Free necklace. I am lucky enough to own the Laundry Line necklace with charms for my daughter and myself as well as a Monogram necklace with my daughter’s initials. I am always so excited to see your new creations. Merry Christmas!

  415. My favorite piece is the new you are loved necklace. I just went thru a nasty divorce with physical and mental abuse and I am now realizing I am loved – by ME! This necklace reminds me that you must love yourself first in order for others to love you.

  416. It’s very hard to pick a favorite. I am always doodling flowers so I ordered the friendship necklace (with the cute little buds) the other day. The Be Still necklace speaks to me too… πŸ˜‰

  417. I have three of your necklaces. My favorite is the simple birdie necklace – my husband gave it to me for Christmas last year. We are hoping to adopt a baby girl soon. He said that the birdie reminded him of an Asian drawing, and he said that he wanted me to have a reminder that someday I will be a mommy with a little girl of my own. I cried and cried…and I wear it nearly every day.

  418. My favorite piece is the Family Crest. It represents my loving, happy marriage, the support I get from my husband and my family, and my strong sense of self. I am a newlywed, and sometimes love is all we have!

  419. If I won the gift certificate I would get my two best girlfriends the paper lantern necklaces. All of our precious children were born and adopted from China. We took this amazing journey together. Just this week I received my own paper lantern necklace as a Christmas present from my hubby.. It is so lovely!! A tiny little treasure that means so much.

  420. My FAVORITE piece is the jumbled charms necklace! I love the little clinking noise it makes as I move around….it continually reminds me of my boys whose names are stamped on the pieces along with 0525 on another (they were both born on May 25 – six years apart) and blessed on another piece. Because truely, I am blessed.

  421. I adore the itty bitty hearts necklace and also the cherished necklace. Your designs are just gorgeous and although the heart necklace is on my wishlist, I don’t think Santa can afford it this year. With a very special little girl who has stolen our heart, I am thinking all the money will be spent on her. I honestly don’t mind though.
    Thank you so much for the chance to win.
    xx

  422. I really love the family tree necklace. I have been blessed with three beautiful munchkins after seven long years of infertility treatments! I’d love to have this necklace with all of us on it. Thanks for the chance to win!

  423. I love everything in your store, Lisa, but what I’m hoping to purchase soon is your dewdrops necklace and the “stinky feet” necklace. I had the dewdrop one in my cart last night, proceeded to checkout, and then learned that you don’t have Paypal. Will have to find another way to purchase it.

    Keep on designing — your stuff is beautiful and so… happy!

  424. My favorite piece is the open circle necklace. There’s just something simple yet meaningful behind the circle. I think it would look super sweet with a pearl as well! πŸ™‚

  425. I love all of your stuff but especially the mama necklace and the family tree necklace. I have three beautiful girls and also another daughter who was stillborn five years ago. I would love to have something that recognizes all of my children. Thank you for this opportunity and Happy Holidays!

  426. My favorite piece is the the sweet sister necklace. It only has three words but it says a lot of what a sister is or should be, known, understood and loved. Three words (other than I love you) that mean so much to a person. I purchased one to give to my future sister in law as a bridesmaid gift and I know she will love it. I love your pieces, you are so creative! I can’t wait to see what you come up with in the new year!

  427. My favorite is the tiny squares- I have my 2 son’s names and birthdate on them. That way they are always close to my heart.
    There are a few more pieces I’d love… so many to choose from!

  428. My favorite piece is the you are loved necklace. There are days when I don’t feel very loveable. This necklace would be a good reminder that God always loves me so, therefore, I am loved.

  429. My favorite piece is the Tiny heart necklace. It’s what you made for me when my second son passed away at birth in May. I’m looking forward to the day that I get to contact you to make me a fifth charm, if we are again blessed with a child. Love ALL your stuff, Lisa.

  430. My favorite is the tiny squares- I have my 2 son’s names and birthdate on them. That way they are always close to my <3.
    There are a few more pieces I’d love… so many to choose from!

  431. My favorite is a custom one my husband ordered for me last year with a dandylion on it. It says “If God Be Your Partner…” It has reminded me over this past rough year that if I’m dreaming God’s dreams, they can’t be too big! And now that we’re adopting a baby girl from Rwanda, those dreams seem really big. If I won, I think I’d get the paper lanterns one with my kids’ names on them. All three: including my Rwanda girl.

  432. My favorite is the one that you made in honor of David the “find joy in the unexpected” I own it. I too have a son with special needs and love to wear it and think of him. I would love love love to own more, since it is the only piece I own.

  433. My favorite is the Be Still necklace. I saw it at a time in my life when I really needed the reminder to “be still”!

  434. I just ordered the bronze freshwater pearl earrings for my mother and the baby’s first spoon for my god-daughter, which I am really excited to give as gifts this year. I think for myself the be still necklace must be my favourite and if I win this (and maybe even if I don’t win) I will buy it. I think it would be a perfect often much needed reminder to take a moment to just be still and enjoy, think, relax, be patient. If I were to receive a gift I would really love the you are loved necklace πŸ™‚

  435. My favorite piece has been the “Be Still” necklace for a long time, but I don’t know. This new “loved” necklace might be my new favorite. I mean, who doesn’t need that reminder every day??? What a beautiful idea!

  436. The new necklace is lovely! πŸ™‚ My favourite is the one where the charms are round and you can have the names on your kids on them. I’m thinking of giving those to my sister in law for her birthday next year!

  437. My favorite at the moment is the Fly Free necklace. I love to take photos of birds so this necklace captures my fancy at the moment. You have so many wonderful designs that my favorite changes from time to time.

  438. My favorite necklace is “fly free”. I had pet birds for many years and they brought such sweet song into my days. My last bird passed away a few years ago and I’m waiting until I finish painting some rooms in my home before finding a new bird friend (paint fumes are very harmful for their respiratory systems). One of my birds used to sit on the edge of his cage and wait until I got home from work then fly to the front door to greet me, sitting on my shoulder as I walked him back to his cage. Your beautiful necklace brings that memory back to me.

  439. I love the new you are loved necklace. My mom has been going through a difficult time and it would be great to give her a necklace just to remind her how much she is loved.

  440. My first and favorite necklace that I had was the Open Circle Necklace. I had it made with “BELIEVE IN MIRACLES”. I bought this about 2 years ago when my son who was 3 at the time was diagnosed with neuroblastoma cancer. I wore it faithfully everyday until he died this past June. It took some time, but I gave it to a friend of our son’s who he always said he was going to marry someday. I can’t tell you how much this necklace meant to me. I now have the dewdrops necklace stamped with my son that we lost, my daughter and my newborn son’s name. Your new necklaced “You are loved” is wonderful. I would love to have something like that for Christmas, but I would rather have my husband think of that on his own. I’ll have to send him a link to your blog.

  441. Hey Lisa! I would have to say your hope necklace. After dealing with cancer myself and now knowing even more people dealing with the awful disease, ‘hope’ has a whole new meaning.

  442. Even though we live in Chile as missionaries, thanks to the internet I was able to meet a friend and encourager throughout our nearly two years in the Haitian adoption process who is also a fellow adoptive mom sharing the journey. Some time ago, her husband purchased your family tree necklace and had it engraved with the names of ALL their children – even those they were waiting for by faith. I had the chance to see it when Jamie and I met in person for the first time on my last trip to Haiti and it is beautiful! Since then it has been my desire to have a similar necklace to celebrate my sons’ homecoming. Tomorrow the older of our two babies turns two years old (he was four months old when we accepted his referral.) I had dreamed of having them home before yet another milestone passed but it was not to be. However, if God wills we may have them home for Christmas and I would love to have that wonderful reason to celebrate!

  443. I love the family tree necklace. I think it is so unique. I love the newest one though and really like the sweet sentiment of it. This time of year to just know that we are loved especially enough for God to send Jesus to us as a baby. My grandmother passed into heaven this week and it has been hard. However, to know she was loved and knew Jesus is a comfort. Sometimes it is the simple gifts we forget until God shows us when He comforts us in times of need and loss of loved ones.

  444. My husband got me your Original Necklace a couple of years ago with my kids’ names on it…I still LOVE it! I’ve had my eye on your family tree necklace for a long time…maybe someday I’ll be able to get that one πŸ˜‰ !

  445. I would love to give the ‘Loved’ necklace to my best friend who has had some health problems this year. I would use the rest to buy something for my sister, who loves your jewelry.

  446. My first and only one was the captured heart necklace with the names of our family members on it. I love it and sometimes it belongs to me like my wedding ring. My next favorite one would be the mama necklace or the fly free necklace, because it is not easy to find a balance in beeing a good mum and finding time for yourself. I love your creative work and the warm words in your blog.

  447. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE all your stuff! My favorite is the single tag necklace w/ two more tags. I have it w/ each of my kiddos names. I get compliments EVERY TIME I wear it. It’s so nice because it is like having my kiddos w/ me all day, even when they are not at my side. It especially helps when i’m teaching an occasional high-spirited second grader. I just smile and think of my little ones. Again, I think your creations are BEAUTIFUL!!!!

  448. I gave my hubby a wish list for the “True Love” necklace this year. (I even signed him up to receive your emails too) I really hope he ordered it for me for Christmas! We have been through so much together in our 13 years of marriage. We have three children and one has some very serious health issues. Constant travel to the children’s hospital out of town and the stress of the situation could have torn us apart but we let it bring us closer together instead. I feel like my husband and I are an example of the true “team work” it takes to raise our special family. Some days are tough and I would cherish the reminder around my neck of our love!

  449. I have a couple of your pieces but my all time favorite is the tiny squares necklace with my wedding date, it was such a special day and the necklace reminds me of all those special memories!!

  450. I LOVE the family tree necklace and would love to have one after our 3rd child is born in less than 6 weeks! And then I’d probably buy the friendship necklace (I think that’s what it’s called) for 2 of my best friends! I would have way too much fun with a gift certificate πŸ™‚

  451. All of your pieces are so unique and beautiful. I wish I could pick one. If I have to it would be the family crest.

  452. First and foremost I love your work!! I am the lucky recipient of the bundle of charms necklace that my hubby gave me for our 4th anniversary…and it is one of my most prized possessions! I have yet to take it off! It has special dates in our life together on each charm…the day we met; the day we got engaged; the day we got married and the day our son was born and then one charm has our son’s name on it. It’s amazing and I was so impressed my hubby got all the dates right!!! πŸ™‚

    I often find myself rubbing on the charms when I am missing my boys (hubby and son) and just knowing I carry those special dates around my neck along with my son’s name brings me comfort. I love it!! It’s very symbolic of my dear family and all that we are!

    I love many more pieces…and would just go nuts if I won this giveaway!!! I would shower myself with another piece…and then shower some special people in my life too!!!! I would just go nuts I tell ya!!!! I hope to win…thanks for the chance!!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!

  453. My favorite (and first) piece is about to become a part of my home, arrival pending. Today is an exciting day, making my first Lisa Leonard purchase. I am getting the large link bracelet and cuff bracelet, to celebrate Aubrey choosing me to be his mom. His initials are A-H-A, intentionally selected to be that way in the arrangement of our last names, to signify the teacher who arrived when he came into our lives, our “aha” moment. Everything I knew prior to meeting him seemed so irrelevant, and life suddenly became richer, more significant. I cannot wait for the arrival of my Aubrey bracelet, as I call it, to tell his story, the story of my greatest teacher, and that of why I chose Lisa to be the one to create it. A joyful Christmas awaits…

  454. Hi – so very fun! Love the new necklace!

    My favortie piece is the drewdrop with the aquamarie stone & pearl – I have it customized to say “amazing grace” and on the other side “unwavering hope” It is my favorite because I feel with out grace and hope – I would be so terribly lost! I feel that I am what I wear, at least most of the time, so when wearing my necklace I feel the power of grace and unwavering hope.

    Thanks Lisa – your jewerly is like no other in that its marked with sweetness!

    Have a great rest of the day!!
    xoTiffany

  455. I love ALL of your designs, but if I had to choose one, the open circle bracelet would be a favorite. Simple and pretty, yet very meaningful. Merry Christmas!

  456. its a toss up between the family tree and the orig. petite circles. i love them both! i send the orig. circles one to friends when they have babies… and got the family tree for my mother in law.
    they are both very classic pieces…hmm… hard to make a decision on that. i guess i’ll say family tree because I LOVE MY FAMILY SO MUCH!
    merry christmas, lisa and family.

  457. I have so many favorites it’s hard to list just one. At this very moment, it’s the Loved necklace. My daughter is 9.5 and has been dealing with a mean girl at school. It’s shaking her confidence and making her feel very alone at school. I’ve been making her a little talisman to carry in her pocket each day to remember that she is loved very much, but this necklace would be even better!
