Sentimetal Designs Review & Giveaway

I could not be more pleased and excited to share about Sentimetal Designs Etsy shop and it's beautiful owner, Tricia, with you. I have been truly blessed by her and her lovely pieces. Tricia has a wonderful talent when it comes to creating jewelry pieces that not only catch the eye, but capture the heart. If you read my previous post and/or have read One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, you will know why this necklace made my soul smile when I saw it. Tricia was so wonderful to allow me the pleasure of receiving this beautiful necklace from her to review. I can't even describe to you just what I felt when I opened up the lovely tin containing this amazing necklace. I literally got chills. Who knew a piece of jewelry could produce such feelings? The design is so delicate, so rustic, so beautiful. It's not just the necklace though, it's Tricia herself who exudes such a love and passion for Jesus. Her pieces are that much more special because you know that her heart goes into each of them and that her heart is focused in the right place. It has truly been a blessing to me to have crossed paths with her. I'm very thankful. She has so many lovely pieces that she has created and she does custom pieces as well, to make them extra personal for you. Here is just a sampling of her talents... It makes my heart smile to remember that the Lord sings over us. A sweet necklace to personalize with names and birthstones of children or grandchildren What a beautiful reminder that we are treasured by the King. A cool way for guys to wear the names of their children or a special message. The pretty little tin that her jewelry is packaged in, making it an even more lovely gift to send to someone special to you. After looking at all of her creative loveliness and receiving the eucharisteo necklace, all I could think of was how blessed I would be to receive one of these pieces as a gift. I kept thinking of how great the Sing Over Me or Treasured necklace would be for young girls and the special women in our lives (sisters, mothers, grandmothers, nieces, daughters)to remind them of just how special they are not only to us, but to the One who created them with such love. These would also make a lovely gift for those young girls going off to college in the fall. Now that I've shown you her lovely creations, I would like to share a little more about Tricia with you. I truly just find her too lovely for words. Here are a few things she would like for you to know about herself. My name is Tricia and I'm a wife, mother and friend. I've always enjoyed being crafty - whether it's decorating our 100 year old farmhouse, or making sock puppets - but since my introduction to metal stamping, I've discovered a new desire for authentic gift-giving. I enjoy that not only can I create a gift to make my loved ones feel truly "known," but I have the opportunity to provide that for anyone, worldwide. I just love that. I live in rural South Dakota and when I'm not busy expanding my skill set and delving deeper into artisan designing, I love to read a good book, snuggle with my babies, bake some kind of warm, gooey treat, or (lastly) catch up on some laundry. You can expect to be treated with the well reputed "Midwestern" hospitality because I appreciate, and remember, the fact (and blessing) that I am able to create these pieces because of you and for you. Thank you! "I thank my God for all the memories I have of you." - Philippians 1:3 _______________________________________________________________________ Is she not just completely adorable?! She is also working on a new design and website that she is hoping to have up and running it a month or so. It will be and I'd like to share it here with you now, so you can keep an eye out for it. Look at the great logo and design she's been working on! Anyway, as I said before, I feel blessed to have crossed paths with her and I am thankful for the love and care she puts into what she creates. I really hope that if you are looking for a uniquely beautiful gift, you will consider her. I know you can't possibly not be excited about her work and so I'm so excited to share with you that Tricia has very generously offered one of my readers the choice of any one item from her shop! I'm excited for you!

What an absolutely accurate review! Tricia is a genuine treasure and her creations are always beautifully and prayerfully handcrafted with love. The personalized pieces I have purchased from Sentimetal Designs have ranged from being adored gifts to my nearby mothers to heirloom wedding keepsakes to relatives in faraway New York City. I personally have been delightfully blessed with these one-of-a-kind solutions to all my gift-giving needs!
