Friday Favorites: Totally Cherished

It's Friday and I am so looking forward to the weekend (although for a Friday the 13th, it was a pretty great day)! Friday is one of my favorites, so it is fitting that today is Favorite Friday, a day to share something I LOVE with you!

Today's feature is (drumroll please)...

Totally Cherished is an Etsy shop featuring sterling silver handmade jewelry and there is WAY more to this shop than meets the eye. Michelle, the founder tells how the idea to open up shop came about...

The idea behind Totally Cherished was born from being a military wife. I am well accustomed to the highs and lows of having a loved one that works in the forces. One of my favourite highs has always been receiving flowers from my husband whilst he is serving in Afghanistan. But watching them wilt away after a week was hard...and throwing them away even harder!

So, I came up with the idea of creating Totally Cherished: an online boutique selling handmade sterling silver jewellery that will last forever. Initially, I planned to solely focus on providing the military with a new and unique online shop that they could access anywhere in the world, to send beautiful gifts to their friends and family back at home. This is still happening, but after giving my jewellery as gifts to my own friends and family, I was inspired to broaden my reach. With a lot of hard work and a little help from my husband, the ideas I had soon became a reality and now I hope other wives, mums, sisters, daughters and friends can enjoy the excitement of receiving a heartfelt gift from their loved ones.

All of the jewellery you see in my Totally Cherished shop is handmade by me, with love and care, in my small workshop in Wales, UK. I believe that a heartfelt gift should last a lifetime and ensure that each and every piece of my jewellery comes with a 'care for life' guarantee.

Whether you’re buying a keepsake for a loved one, or you are just treating yourself to something special, I hope you will enjoy my jewellery. I am always coming up with new designs, so do pop in to my shop whenever you like to see if something new takes your fancy.

When I read this I was so inspired by such a wonderful cause and delighted that she would share such amazing talents through her beautiful jewelry! What an inspiration! She even gives a discount to those serving or gifting to those in the military! You can learn more on her website or visit her Etsy shop directly to order!

Thanks Michelle for letting us feature your shop and talents as our Friday Favorite! Have a great weekend everyone!
