I am really excited to feature this lovely Etsy shop today! Not only is the jewelry beautiful, but her bracelets mean something extra special to every Military wife/fiance/girlfriend out there.
Shannah’s Etsy shop is called Owl Meets Fox, but her banner proudly proclaims where she stands in the different military branches with a loud, “Our Love is Semper Fi”.
Shannah started this shop back in 2012 for a wonderful reason. In her own words… “I started this shop so that milsos could support their men even if they are far away. Nothing says “I’m waiting for you” better than wearing something that supports him!”
For those of you who don’t know, I am going to become a military wife in April. *smile* So when I saw her silver Navy bracelet, I got excited! It came in the mail a few weeks ago, and I’ve been really excited to share my thoughts about it with you all! 🙂
She’s only got four different bracelets available right now — “Army”, “USMC”, “Navy”, and “USAF” — but she plans to expand her shop in the near future. So stay tuned to see what else she comes out with! 😉
The bracelet arrived strung around this really pretty card. It was a nice way to not only display the bracelet, but also to ensure it doesn’t tangle during shipping.
As you can see from the picture, she writes “our love is ocean deep” and also includes a bible verse at the bottom. These special little touches really made her Etsy shop stand out to me — I love when things are taken to the next step, even if just a little bit, and personalized this way.
As for the bracelet itself, it’s a really nice, shiny silver wire that makes up the words, and then just a traditional chain for the rest of the bracelet. While I think it is very well made, I also think it’s a very delicate, dainty piece of jewelry. Because of the wire used to write out the names, I wouldn’t recommend wearing this bracelet for any occasion — especially the situation is rather rough. I tend to wear it when I am going out and not so much when I am cleaning or cooking around the house. Again, let me say, this is just my own thoughts and how I personally think for my bracelet. My “Navy” bracelet hasn’t become bent, twisted, or ‘unwound’ in any way since I got it.
All in all, I think these bracelets are great! And she sells them for very reasonable prices. You can’t ask for a better way to support your soldier then getting a “Army” or “USMC” bracelet for under ten dollars! 😉
I received this bracelet from Owl Meets Fox in order to review on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products I personally liked.
