11/6/10 ~ Front Toggle Bar Tag Necklace Review ~ By Dawn Speese. I don’t own very many jewelry pieces and really haven’t worn much in the last few years, except for my staple wedding ring set and diamond earrings. I suppose much of that has to do with the fact that since my children arrived, I am usually pretty rushed when I am getting ready for the day. However, the recent popularity of hand stamped jewelry has caught my eye and when I saw Hip Fusion Designs website I was totally captivated by Neida’s work!
About Hip Fusion Designs: Neida is the artist and business owner behind Hip Fusion Designs. Her work is influenced by her background growing up in inspiring and vibrant surroundings located in places like Venezuela, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Although carrying a passion for artistic creativity, she gave in to her practical side and attended college, focusing her education on management. After a successful business career she rediscovered her artistic passions and fell in love with metal smithing. She then trained for four years in jewelry making. As a result she walked away from her corporate career to follow her dream and Hip Fusion Designs was born!
I love the Greens and Blues in her Ready-to-go line, but you will definitely want to browse the Gallery. You will love the extensive selection Neida offers. Be sure to also check out her Made-To-Order and Personalized Collections too! I was fortunate enough to receive a Front Toggle Bar Tag Necklace from the Personalized Collection.
The Personalized Collection: Express yourself with jewelry that has special meaning to you. Express your devotion with jewelry that has special meaning to your loved ones.
If you’re looking for something for yourself (you so deserve it), or that perfect thoughtful gift, my handcrafted personalized name and number tag jewelry is a perfect fit. This is not like your traditional seen-all-over-the-place name tag jewelry. All kinds of hip necklace and bracelet styles are available for moms, dads (seriously!), wives, husbands, hip grandmas, kids, flower girls, bridesmaids… the list goes on!
By manually cutting and stamping letters or numbers on metal clay that fuses into fine silver or bronze, name, initial and number tags are custom made exclusively for you… perfect for the names of children, grandchildren, siblings, parents, sweeties, birthdates, wedding dates, graduation years, etc.
With my unique designs, long names and lot’s of names can always be accommodated. What’s more, there is no per letter or number charge…check out all the choices! Let your creativity run wild as you personalize any of my items.
My Thoughts: I was so excited when my package arrived and couldn’t wait to open the box and see what Neida had created for me! I received the hand strung clear glass crystal style necklace with the front toggle bar tags. The two bars with my girls names on them were easily read and they both LOVED that their names were on my necklace! In fact every time I wear it my youngest daughters face gets all soft and she tells me “Oh Mommy, you really love me so much don’t you?”. I can’t even express how this makes me feel to know what kind of effect Mommy’s jewelry has on her. If I had known how special it would make her feel, I would have ordered one a long time ago! You can see it in the photo above, where she is admiring it, which she does every time I put it on! Although it looks beautiful in the above photo, the necklace is even more stunning in person! I love the feel, look and style of this beautiful hand crafted necklace and would not hesitate to purchase more quality pieces from Hip Fusion in the future. This is most definitely going to be a treasured piece for me that I will wear every chance I get! Be sure to browse the site, there are a few things you may want to add to your Christmas list or even better you can work directly with Neida to create your own one of a kind piece!
