B is for birthday, but more importantly, B is for bling! What's a birthday celebration without that extra touch of sparkle?
Today in the weekly Birthday Wish List series, I'd like to introduce you to a company called Origami Owl. This jewelry business' founder just graduated from high school and celebrated her 18th birthday! Very impressive.
Origami Owl allows you to create custom lockets for family and friends, first by choosing the chain, then the locket frame and finally the charms to fill the locket.
I discovered this idea on one of my favorite fashion blogs, Electric Blogarella, written by Miami mama Ginger Harris. She was able to attend an event with the Origami Owl founder and create a locket for herself and one for her daughter. Here is one of her photos:

Though their branding is a bit juvenile, I love the idea of creating a personalized, wearable keepsake. Not all of us have the budget to buy our friends a pile of Alex + Ani bangles, so this is a way to customize a gift that is truly unique for the birthday girl.
Personally, I'm loving the Rose Gold Living Locket with crystals, the piñata charm, the boat drink charm, the double scoop ice cream cone charm, the vintage bus charm (with surfboard!), the palm tree charm and the bon voyage suitcase charm.
