I will always remember my eldest daughter's birth with a certain fullness of heart. It was a momentous day, a magical day...a day that changed my life forever.
She took her first breath outside of the womb and I was forever transformed. My entrance into motherhood was pure metamorphosis. So much about who I was...what I cared about, how I thought about things, the way I viewed the world...was altered because of her beautiful face, her innocence, and her fragile strength.
I love wearing my On the Day You Were Born necklace ($38) from Becoming Jewelry because it reminds me of the splendor of that day - of the horrific pain that wrought such overwhelming love.
New moms will love the delicate silver charms engraved with their child's initials and his/her date of birth. It's a lovely way to keep her child close to her heart...in a quite literal sense.
Becoming Jewelry also offers other personalized necklaces, charm necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and children's jewelry so feel free to shop around for all of the women in your life.

A lovely and charming idea. I wonder if they do more than one child. How would a parent choose? I could go with my first born, but how would that make the twins feel? Then of course I obviously could not wear a piece of jewelry just celebrating the birth of one of the twins. I guess, should I be fortunate enough to win, I will need to be creative.

I love the sentimental value of this!
These are really special and so perfect for moms at any age! That day was the most special day of my life, and I would cherish a piece of jewelry like this.
It would be hard to pick which of my children's initials to put on this..so if I win..I am going to give this to my cousin who just had a baby after 9 years of trying!! I know she would just love it so much! Thanks for the chance!
This is really unique and would make a great gift for a mom of twins that I know.
This is too cute! i would love to have this for my new little one that I am expecting this coming April. Thanks for a great giveaway :)
This is so pretty! I don't know how I would pick which child to -- I guess I'd go with the oldest and then buy one for my younger :-)
WOW how beautiful. That would be wonderful. Thanks for the giveaway.
What a lovely necklace. I would love to win it.
This necklace is so pretty would be so nice with
my daughter's birthdate on it.Thanks for the giveaway
This is beautiful. Thanks!
very nice :)
I am linked to your site.
I would love to win this and give it to my cousin that just had her baby two weeks ago.
The Peace Earrings - Sterling are pretty cool
Your description of the change you go through when you give birth is right on. I used to say 'you can't describe it' - - but you've done a pretty good job.
The necklace is just lovely. Thank you!
This is a sweet idea.
These are really lovely! My daughter and my two granddaughters (her little girls) were all born in February. The little one was born on my daughter's birthday, and the oldest one's birthday is 2 days later. I'd love to give this to my daughter...then order 2 more for my little granddaughters..all Amethyst birthstones! Aagh! 3 birthdays in one week!
Your button is on my sidebar, thanks!
This is so nice...remembering that day is always special, and to have a token of that day would be nice, thanks
That is such a sweet idea. It's something really special that can be passed down.
Handmade jewelry is the best. I adore sterling silver and the birthstone crystals are a very nice touch. Thanks, Cindi
What a cute necklace,love the little birthstone bead, thanks for the giveaway

I would love to win this for my sister in law! Thanks for the chance!
This necklace is so unique! It would be a great reminder of the wonderful day my darling daughter was born. She is so very special to me! Thanks so much for this giveaway!
fun, fun, fun
I like this, the only thing is if I won, I would have to buy another one because I have 2 boys.
I'd love this necklace
Great idea, for any one.
I would love to have this!

Right now you have a text link on my sidebar but I'm working on your button.....
I just love that you can put your child's birthstone on the necklace...it's gorgeous! : ) I would put my son's initial on it!
This is perfect. I've been looking for something for my daughter in law whose baby arrived on Friday 12/12/08. I know she would love something simple but memorable and I want to get her a keepsake as they are a young couple and it was an unplanned yet welcomed pregnancy and they don't have it in their budget for "extras". Even if I don't win it, it is reasonably priced, delicate, and simple enough to wear daily. I think of all I've looked at, it's my winner!
a gorgeous necklace.
i would choose the granddaughter one to give to my MIL because she was there from day one when my daughter was born!
I would love this necklace. The trick would be deciding which kiddo to put on it!
sweet idea - the necklace is beautiful, it would be a wonderful gift
This is so beautiful, I love personalized jewlery!
Love this...simple yet beautiful.
This would make a wonderful gift for my nieces mom for Christmas.
I love how simple this is ... something that my little Lucy could treasure.
Great idea. I would make one for my sister with her son's name on it.
This is a gorgeous piece and such a neat idea!
These are just beautiful. What a great idea!
I love their Tiny Lotus Charm Necklace
:) Thank you for the wonderful giveaway! :)
What a good giveaway.
Oh, I would love this! I've been wanting something charming like this to recognize my sons birth.
Very beautiful !!
Um, the site glitched in the middle of my post. LOL. Anyways, I love the site.
I have you on my bloglist. But for some reason, it is posting as my husband? William Moore? I suspect something is happening to my computer. Sorry.
That is so beautiful. I am sending a link to my daughter. She blessed me with a granddaughter two year
Count me in.
This is so pretty, and different than a lot of others I've seen. I love it! My little boy is due in May and this would be so much fun to have! Thanks!
Wow. I would love to win this.
Beautiful! I really like this necklace
What a beautiful idea. Would love to have one with my daughter's info on it.
Since I only have boys and it would be hard to choose which one to commemorate, I would honor my first grandchild's (and first girl) date and birthstone. Thanks for the idea!
Your site Button is on my sidebar here
What a lovely necklace.
I would love to win this, although I'm not sure which of my two angels would get to be on the necklace. Maybe I'll just have to get two! I don't have anything like this and would love something sentimental. Thanks!
It's such a simple yet profoundly sweet necklace. I love it.
very beautiful items
This is a really sweet necklace. Although I can't see from the website, it would be nice to be able to add charms for additional children.
What a clever way to honor someones birth!
I hope I'll be able to supply a date before too long- my due date was yesterday, and my daughter hasn't made an appearance yet! I'd love to commemorate the event with this necklace when it finally happens...
how pretty, of course I would have to pick which daughter's info to put on the necklace if I was lucky enough to win :)

What a gorgeous necklace, I'd love it!
I have a friend who has a similar necklace and I just love it. It would be so special to have something like this to commemorate such a special day.
Wow. That really is a sweet necklace. I had no idea that they days my kids were born would change my life so completely.
Love love love it! Your words about your first born's birthday was so touching :)
Granddaughter necklace! I would love to show off my only Grandbaby's birthdate around my neck. Won't the girls at bingo love that!! [email protected]
Can you have two little charms on the necklace? So sweet, and more fashionable than some of the other cheesy mom jewelry out there...:)
I love their Tiny Lotus Charm Necklace - it's absolutely lovely!
I like the hammered gold necklaces on the Becoming Jewelry site. What a great giveaway! The necklace would be a perfect reminder of my daughter's birth in July.
I love personalized jewelry. It makse me feel like the loves of my life are right there with me all day long.
That is a cute idea. Some of the other jewelry is cool too.

This is beautiful! I'd really love to have a mother's necklace, and I love the simplicity and style of this one. Thanks for the chance to enter!
Oh, I adore necklaces like this, that are timeless and not outfit-dependant. Very sweet!
By the way, you're in my blogroll.
We've been selected by a birthmother who is having a baby boy in mid-January! I'm so excited for a boy! I have a custom necklace with my daughter's photo in it, but this one is more simple, which seems more appropriate for a baby boy.
Thanks for the giveaway. The necklace is so nice that my daughter would want to wear it herself!
I've got your button!
How sweet. This is one of those necklaces that you will ALWAYS wear...no matter the outfit! It's just very precious!
You're on my blogroll.
What a fabulous keepsake, and so simple. It would go with just about anything.
I would love this necklace -- I'd like two, actually -- or two charms, one for each of my precious little ones. Thanks!

I would love this for my dd she is my only child so it makes my decision pretty easy. I love jewelry that shows my love for her. Thanks for a great giveaway.
This would be a great present for my cousin-in-law who is expecting her first baby.
These personalized necklaces are so unique and sentimental. The craftsmanship on these looks so beautiful, too. Thanks for introducing me to another great artist!

How precious! I would love to have one of these. Your on my blogroll.
How sweet is this! My sis-in-law just had a baby in Sept., and this would be such a great gift for her! I know she would love it!
Great giveaway - thanks for offering!
I added your to my other cool blogs list :)
This is so beautiful!
You are on my blogroll.
This is a beautiful necklace. It's a really sweet idea. I would love to win it!
love this sentimental piece of jewelry. mkw
that is such a beautiful idea...I've become a bit ridiculous with the mom stuff...if I find clothes with the word mom my son is forced to wear them...jewelry...I'll probably have it tattooed on my head (and aren't they supposed to be the ones to do that?) I love being a mom! )
This would be such a wonderful way to remember our last child's (yes, I do believe he will round out our family) birth. He is about to arrive any week or day now and I can't believe I'm about to be a Mommy for the third time! Such beautiful memories.
Oooh, I'm with Angie. I still wanna win, but I don't know how to pick which kid to go on it. Flip a coin? Whoever smiles at me first that day? :)
These are so beautiful- simple but meaningful. I would love to have one with my daughter's b-day. Her entrance into my life has been utterly transformational as well. I can identify with all those emotions that you expressed so clearly. I can't believe that my newborn is a vivacious toddler.
Oh My. This is so precious! I would adore this if I won it with my daughters birth date.
How adorable. I love the little birthstone bead. I wish there were a way to fit two initials and dates on it though. I don't know how I'll pick which of the kids initials to use if I win!!
