The Silver Maple Jewelry Giveaway

I have once again been blessed to receive a piece of jewelry from The Silver Maple. For those of you new around here (welcome!), there are a few companies I 100% stand behind. You can find them in my sidebar. The Silver Maple is one of them.

I firmly believe in supporting small business and count myself lucky to have come in contact with the force behind The Silver Maple. Jacquelyn is a mother and a runner who is passionate about making beautiful, custom jewelry.

Every time I wear one of her necklaces I get compliments. In fact, I’ve gone so far as to request she send me business cards so I can hand them out whenever someone is drooling over my necklace.

Jacquelyn followed my journey to my first marathon last fall and created this piece to commemorate that race.


The round charm is made from clipping a word out of an antique dictionary. The words “endure” and “persist” are a perfect description of what I went through that day. And as I start marathon training again, it has been a great reminder of what I have accomplished.

This November, when I cross that finish line again I’ll be putting in an order for another necklace. This one won’t say “endure” it will say “Redemption”

She has tons of great jewelry beyond fitness pieces. You can check it out HERE.
