The Breathe Bracelet: Sterling Silver Advice

Friday, October 25, 2013

The Breathe Bracelet

Sterling Silver Advice

Hello, Everyone! It's Shauna again from Momma Candy. I hope you're enjoying your version of fall whether it be in an actual fall with colorful leaves and cool weather or eighty degree temps and flip flops like me. I bake pumpkin bread to make up for it.

So as I was perusing through the beautiful pages of the Whole Soul Jewelry website, I clicked on the New Arrivals page to see what kind of things I needed to put on my Christmas list. 

The first piece I saw was unlike any other piece of jewelry I'd ever seen. And because I love meaningful, unique jewelry, of course I love this piece.

How much did you need this advice?

I absolutely love the message and I love the hammered style of the bracelet, too. It's sterling silver and personalized so each piece is unique and one of a kind. Imperfectly perfect.

I think what I like most about this custom bracelet is that it's for everyone. No matter what you're going through in life and no matter what you've been through in the past, this hand stamped bracelet is a good bit of advice to grace your wrist or the wrist of someone else who might need this at just the right moment.

Heed the advice.

Breathe in - Breathe out - Move on.


Food For Thought - Roasted Garlic Mushroom Recipe

Monday, October 21, 2013

Every once and a while, I stumble across an image of something edible online that I wish I could grab right out of the screen and eat! 

I thought I might share with you something other than jewelry related today.

This....happening right now, as I type. Oh, if you could only smell this kitchen....



  • 16 even-sized open cup mushrooms, stalks cut 
  • 3 tbsp corn or vegetable oil 
  • 1/4 c unsalted butter, softened 
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped very finely 
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped 
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 c fresh breadcrumbs 
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6.
  •  Lightly fry the mushrooms, cap-side down, in hot oil for 20 seconds. 
  • Arrange the mushrooms in a shallow roasting tin with the stalks facing upwards. 
  • Mix together the butter, garlic, thyme, lemon juice and seasoning. 
  • Spoon a little garlic butter on to each mushroom, then lightly press the breadcrumbs on top. 
  • Either refrigerate for later use, or cook immediately in the oven for 10 minutes. 


Remember to bookmark it for future reference so you'll always have this recipe available!

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Hand Stamped Necklace

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Hi, Everyone! It's me, Shauna, from Momma Candy!

October 15th was Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.

The piece I'd like to feature this week is really in dedication to the many friends and mothers I've known who've gone through the horrible pain of loosing a pregnancy or infant. 

When this happens to someone we love we often wonder what to say or what to do. The one common answer I almost always hear is in one word. 


Acknowledgement that your baby was here. 

Your baby was real. 

Your baby is remembered. Your baby is loved.

Hand stamped Jewelry pregnancy infant loss

Whole Soul Jewelry specializes in handmade jewelry, but they also specialize in making handmade memories. 

Everything on this Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Necklace can be customized. The Sterling Silver tag can be customized to say "Remember" or whatever you choose. And the small footprint charm can also include any initial of your choice as an option. The remembrance ribbon is decorated with pink and blue crystals.

A perfect way to acknowledge. A beautiful way to remember forever.

Day of the Dead Personalized Necklace

Thursday, October 10, 2013


I'm Shauna from Momma Candy! I blog about my life with three kids, baking, travel, special needs advocacy, and celebration. I like finding the candy in life, whether it be pretty things, daily coffee, or sour patch kids!

So when I came across Whole Soul Jewelry almost a year ago, I knew I had definitely found some Momma Candy. I received my first personalized necklace from Whole Soul Jewelry and it was love at first site. I've been a fan ever since.

And because I'm the self appointed biggest fan of Whole Soul Jewelry and their personalized necklaces, I'm so excited to be writing a weekly segment sharing my favorite pieces of Handstamped, Rustic Inspired Jewelry!

I was looking through the Whole Soul Jewelry site and their newest arrivals and I stopped dead in my tracks. 

I had to have it.

Just in time for Halloween and Day of the Dead!

Day of the Dead Personalized Sugar Skull Necklace

day of the dead personalized necklace

Sugar skulls!

And you can personalize these? (Yes. Yes, you can.)

They're sterling silver, personalized, and, frankly, this personalized necklace should be mine.

Is there such a thing as a Halloween present? If so, can someone please alert my husband?

See you next week with another one of my favorite pieces!
