Win a Hot Mama Designs Personalized Necklace!
posted by: Amber Johnson
As Mother’s Day draws closer, I have been sent a number of press releases for wonderful mom-oriented products. Hot Mama Designs’ jewelry line was a stand-out because it truly celebrates the essence of being a mother and a woman. I immediately fell in love with their personalized jewelry and treasure wearing my children’s names around my neck.
This style features a single sterling disc, optional birth stone and optional birth date stamped on the back of the disc. Choose your own disc size, letter size, birth stone and birth date to make it a unique one-of-a-kind piece.
Shannon Sunderland is a wife, mom and metalsmith living in Boulder. She started making the Hot Mama Designs jewelry line in 2003 around the time she gave birth to her son. She started giving her work as gifts to her “new mama” girlfriends. Nearly every woman who received a piece of jewelry with their new baby’s name on it would cry and she realized she was onto something. She says she loves the feeling of connecting and celebrating mothers and families.
All pieces are 100 percent sterling silver and 14-karat gold. Shannon uses real semi-precious and precious stones and everything has been made by hand in her home studio. Every piece goes through a rigorous five-part process, which includes stamping, soldering, adding patina, setting stones with special hand tools and adding a lustrous brushed finish.
