Blog friends, I’m happy to introduce you to a Memphis mom with a mission. Jennifer started her business, Love Loud Designs, because she believes that is is so important for the people in your life to know, without a doubt, in good times and bad, that they are loved. She creates hand-stamped jewelry so that you can proudly display the names of the most precious people in your lives. I just love the idea of loving loud. Jennifer is absolutely right that the people who are your world should never doubt it!
Jennifer sent me a necklace stamped with “Darah.” It is such a treasure, because as you can imagine, I can’t exactly find, “Darah” gear at the mall or even online. My child has an unusual name, so anytime I want to get her name put on something, it will have to be a custom order.
I have to say, I didn’t realize how special this necklace would be to me until I received it. People have commented on the piece, and that’s always an opportunity to talk about my little love. I also think of her throughout the day any time I touch the necklace. I absolutely love it.
Love Loud Designs pieces are sterling silver. Each charm Jennifer makes comes with a ball chain necklace (either 16 or 18 inches in length). Her pieces range from $28-$60, varying by the size of the piece and if you add extra things such as charms or birthstones. Love Loud Designs is set up on Etsy and on Facebook. Jennifer has some examples of items she makes, but if you want to place an order, just send her an email through Etsy or Facebook with what you are looking for, and she’ll be able to quote you a price for your particular needs.
Jennifer has a passion for making jewelry, and she even took a class on metal working so that she could produce pieces of the highest quality for others. She loves being able to offer folks the opportunity to personalize gifts in a way that is original and fun.
Jennifer offers two fonts – lowercase script font and an uppercase gothic font. She also makes leather and beaded bracelets. I love the combination of metal and leather, personally! Basically, Jennifer is a very creative person, and she’d love to work with you to create a one-of-a-kind piece that you or a loved one with cherish. I know I will wear my Darah necklace for years to come!
