The Special Story Behind My Mama Pendant

When my daughter was just 6 years old, she used her allowance to purchase a seashell necklace and gave it to me for Mother's Day.

She said, "Mommy I want you to always be reminded of the beach because I know it makes you happy."

I wore that necklace for years, and every time I looked down at it, I was reminded. Yes, of the beach - but, more importantly, I was reminded of how much I love my daughter. This reminder never failed to bring a smile to my face, and I wore the necklace until it disintegrated.

This was the inspiration for my Ilissa Michele 'Mama' Pendant. I wanted to create something that could be paired with just about any necklace... just for Mother's Day. 

I started with high quality Sterling Silver as a base, and then added Pave Diamonds to achieve just the right amount of shimmer. The result? A beautiful piece that I hope will give mom the same feeling my seashell necklace did.

About Ilissa Michele Jewelry

My passion for jewelry stems from how it makes me feel. The right necklace can give a sense of empowerment, while a special bracelet may remind me of a special moment from the past. Like smells or tastes, the feel and look of jewelry can evoke emotions and memories.

That's why I began designing and handcrafting jewelry to share with other women just like myself. To me, these designs represent much more than fashion, and I hope to share that with you.
