visions of hope necklace BLOG2
A few weeks ago I shared the beautiful dresses that the talented Robin at Red Thread Stitches had made for the girls, today I am going to share another gem that I stumpled upon.

Actually, I did not really stumble upon it, the owner/designer took one of my online photography classes and I had the pleasure of getting to know her personally.

Kim, the owner of Wheat and Wildflowers, is a beautiful person inside and out.
If you know her or take a few minutes to browse her site, you will see that she has big a heart for the children of China.

Not only is Kim an adoptive Mom, but she also has her business set up to give back to those left behind. She has designed necklaces for specific charitable organizations such as; An Orphan's Wish, Grace & Hope for Children, Love Without Boundaries, and Henan Kids International.
You can read more about it by clicking HERE.

She offers a LARGE selection of handstamped jewelry, and will even personalize something for you......as she did for me with my "Visions of Hope" necklace.

I love this necklace so much and wear it as often as I can.
To me it is a constant reminder of Reagan, her beginnings, the children that are still waiting in China, and the project that I have been working on this year.
It is a very special piece that I wear proudly.

The minute the piece arrived, I emailed Kim to thank her for designing such a gorgeous necklace. I told her that I wanted to share it here with you all and she sweetened the deal.
Did I mention that she has a GIANT HEART?

She is offering anyone who reads my blog a coupon code.
The code is VISIONSOFHOPE (All one word, all caps, no spaces)
By using this code at checkout, you will receive 10% off any purchase.
(Coupon code is only valid through August 7, 2011)

And if that was not generous enough......
50 dollar gift card
She is going to giveaway one $50 Gift Certificate to be used for the piece of your choice!!!

I am SO EXCITED to be able to host this giveaway!

If you would like a chance to win the $50 gift certificate, please leave a comment here before Sunday night at 9pm Eastern Time.
We will pick the winner next Monday!

Good Luck and Have a Wonderful Weekend.

Teri said...

Amazingly beautiful. What a beautiful necklace for you. Kim does amazing work. Going to check out her site right now:)

Kristi said...

Pls count me in the chance for one of these beautiful necklaces!! Also, I have been thinking of you a lot lately and what you have shared about Reagan. I think it's great that you followed your gut, always advocate for her despite what Dr.'s or well meaning friends may say to you (I constantly heard, don't be silly, she's fine, etc.). I know how hard speech concerns can be... You know our Viv is non verbal, so pls email me if you'd like to converse more.

Cindy said...

I've worked with Kim for Grace and Hope and she is an amazing woman with a huge heart! Her jewelry is so fun to wear! Love the camera design too, thanks for all you do also and for sharing your vision.

Love this jewelry! Thanks for sharing your great find!

Kristi said...

I am absolutely floored and thrilled to have won this giveaway. I never win things but I told my mom and she said this is a sign of a change of good things to come!! The funny thing is that I had purchased a necklace as a gift thinking I would never ever win and look what happened. Now, I get to get a necklace with my sweet girl's name on it, and hopefully I can add another little girl's name on a charm in the not so distant future. Thanks so much Lisa and Kimberly. I will be a frequent customer for future gifts!

With Love and gratitude,
Kristi
