Handmade Gift Idea: Sematay Jewelry

I know it seems far off, but I have my eye on Christmas gift ideas already. Next to my most favorite gift idea, experience gifts, I think handmade gifts are the way to go. In the next few weeks, I will be featuring some great Etsy shops that offer some fantastic handmade items.

First up is Sematay Handmade Jewelry. She makes some adorable personalized necklaces that Ariana and Annika are just in love with.

Annika and Ariana are quite the opposite little girls.

Annika is as princessy, frilly and girly as they come.

She needs to accessorize before kindergarten every day: headband, socks, belt, scarves... whatever she can find. And so, for her, this fun necklace with her name on it could not be any more perfect. Of course, it had to be in pink, her signature color.

On the opposite end of the spectrum is Ariana, who wears jeans, t-shirt and sneakers every single day, without fail.

She wanted the teal necklace because she is "soooo over the pink and purple". I was not sure she would wear it since her glasses are pretty much her only accessory. However, she has not taken it off since she put it on 2 weeks ago. I think the simplicity of the piece works well for her... I also think every little girl feels special to have their name on their jewelry.

These necklaces were a hit with both girls... and BONUS.... they are only $14.95! Check out Sematay and follow her on Twitter too.


  1. Those are great...and I love that they work with your girls' different personalities.

  2. That first pic of Ariana looks EXACTLY like you!! Such a great photo! Really captures what I assume is a carefree spirit and a messy creativity! Beautiful.

  3. My daughter would LOVE these actually! She is all about accessories!

  4. Michele, thank you so much for posting this. Your girls are beautiful. If any of your readers would like to purchase a necklace for their girls or as a gift, they can contact me directly at corie @ sematay . com.
