Origami Owl Lockets: a Flash Valentine’s Day Giveaway!

2014-02-13 05.15.45

My dear friend Laura designed an Origami Owl locket for me after Kaden died. It was so perfect – each little piece in it meant so much to me. I had heard of them before, but owning one was really something special. The fact that she took the time to pick out an elephant, baby feet, his birthstone – I felt incredibly loved.

Since then, it’s been neat to see what other’s lockets hold. I want to share the love with you all:

I’ve paired up with Jamie who owns her own Origami Owl business for a flash Valentine’s Day giveaway. Were going to give one of you an Origami Owl locket – either for yourself or to give away (it makes a pretty incredible gift, take it from me). The winner will receive a Medium Silver Living Locket4 Charms of choice, and 24”-26” Silver Rolo Chain.


Here’s a little more on Jamie and the Origami Owl story. Then enter via Rafflecopter below!


I’m Jamie, a 28 year old working mom to an awesome 4 year old daughter and wife to a wonderful man I‘ve been with since I was 15. When I first saw an Origami Owl necklace I knew I had to have one. When I got one – EVERYONE I met asked me where they could get one too. That’s when I knew I needed to become an Origami Owl Designer to share this beautiful jewelry with others.

Origami Owl is an amazing company founded by a 14 year old girl (Bella) saving for her first car. Talk about inspirational!


What is in my locket? I have several now, but my favorite is pictured above – a heart locket with “love to cook”, my birthstone, dog paw (we have 3 labs!), mom, little girl, daughter’s birth stone, husband’s birth stone, and faith. What is amazing about this jewelry is that you customize it with your story. 

My charms may be meaningless to you, but they are my everything. “FAITH”… it means so much to me in particular. It’s my daughter’s middle name because we struggled through infertility (and loss) for two years before becoming pregnant with her… through it all my husband was my rock of “FAITH” in God that He would see our hearts and bless us with a child.

My Origami Owl business helps to pay for more fertility treatments as we’ve tried to conceive again for the last three years. It gives me freedom to work around my full-time job and responsibilities as a wife/mom. Plus it is so much fun, and touches my heart when someone creates a piece that is meaningful to them!

If you are in the San Diego, CA area I would love to help you earn free jewelry with an in home Jewelry Bar. Out of the area? How about a Virtual Jewelry Bar? Or, if you are interested in becoming a Designer, I would love to have you join my team. Contact me via email or Facebook for details.

Ready to win? Enter below – but be quick! The giveaway ends at midnight and a winner will be chosen tomorrow. See below for rules.

Good luck!

    I really don’t know what I would choose. I have a child on earth and a child in heaven and am a cancer survivor. I would like something to represent each of them, plus the amazing man who has been through it all with me!

  10. Sarah K says

    The globe, camera, a cross, and something celebrating our little family (we are finally pregnant with our first baby!). These are beautiful necklaces. :)

    I’ve already been gifted with my very own Origami Owl necklace which has an “N” for my angel baby Noah’s name, his birthstone (March) and baby feet.
    If I won this giveaway, I’d create a special locket for a friend who has lost a baby recently.
    thank you!

    I’d love a cross for my faith, a peridot birthstone (my daughter and I share a birthday), a heart and probably something for shopping. It’s my favorite thing to do :)

    Love this. I would do two pairs of baby footprints for my two little ones in Heaven, and a peanut for my daughter-her nickname b/c she weighed 2 lbs 4 oz when she was born. I’d also include “Faith” and a heart.

  23. Diane says

    Oh, so many choices! I would choose a silver locket, the mom heart, a dog paw, an owl (for my mom), my sons’ birthstones. I could see myself making several of these with different interests included… beautiful! I’ve wanted one since I first saw them.

  25. Amanda says

    I’m the most indecisive person on Earth, so I couldn’t possibly choose. Most likely something to do with being a mother to my daughter.

  31. Jennifer Liedl Schwab says

    It would probably take me forever to actually decide, but the birthstone girl charms, knitting needles, love to read, and RN catch my eye.

  32. Renee G says

    I was actually shopping Origami’s website right as you posted about this! No joke!! Thinking about one for me and one for my daughter. I think I like the link locket bracelet with my kids’ initials inside and I haven’t picked out the rest. So excited for this!
