Win a Stunning Solid Bronze, Freshwater Pearl Medal from On This Day Designs

Mother’s Day is coming up soon – one of my favorite holidays of the year, because I love to have the occasion to shower love upon my mother and mother-in-law. When I was growing up, Daddy always made a huge celebration out of the day. Even if there weren’t lavish gifts, there were always handmade cards, Mass as a family and breakfast in bed. My mom didn’t lift a finger on Mother’s Day – it was more about sharing our appreciation for her than spending a ton of money.

Sacred Heart and Pearls

Freshwater Pearls

As a community service, especially to our male readers, this post serves as your formal reminder that Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12.

To help you get started with your planning, my friends at On This Day Designs are offering our readers the chance to win an amazing gift: the absolutely gorgeous Sacred Heart and Pearls necklace. I am blessed to own a lovely bronze medal necklace designed by the sisters at On This Day Designs, and I can share that it’s one of my favorite jewelry items because it combines quality materials and construction with a sense of the sacred. This gift is similar – you’ll love it for it’s looks, but it will also serve as a reminder of Christ’s love for each of us!

Here’s the overview:

A stunning solid bronze Sacred Heart medal is beautifully paired with the elegance of freshwater pearls.

  • Medal: Sacred Heart of Jesus
  • Beads: Freshwater pearls, antique gold metal beads and rondelles,
  • Clasp: Bronze twisted cleft clasp
  • Length: 17 1/2

Bronze Sacred Heart Medal

This gift comes from the awesome team at On This Day DesignsHere’s a bit about them:

We are a small, family owned and operated jewelry company located in America’s heartland. Our parents, Joan and Jack Minardi, wanted a big family and God answered their prayers with 8 bundles of joy, 6 girls and two boys. We six sisters and two sisters-in-law hung out our shingle in 2006 and haven’t looked back. Actually, to be honest, occasionally we do look back and wonder, “What were we thinking?” Some of our 49 children help us with our jewelry making and eventually we may press our ever growing numbers of grandchildren into service. Presently, we have 12 grandkids…who knows maybe one of them will be running On This Day Designs in 30 years? In between our family duties, we design, handcraft and sell both retail and wholesale Catholic jewelry including hard to find men’s designs, tenners and ‘fun finds’ we want to share with our customers. We create many unique items that may not be found on other Catholic sites. Read more…

May I recommend that along with entering this contest, you head directly over to On This Day Designs and do your Mother’s Day shopping today? I can personally guarantee that any gift you purchase from these amazingly talented jewelry designers will be a blessing to its recipient! This mom already has a long “wish list” of items I’m going to be emailing to my husband!
