I purchased a necklace from Melissa @ BRAGaboutIT for my mom’s Birthday.
First, Let me tell you about Melissa.
I sent Melissa a message simply asking about a custom piece and she got back to me right away! We started chatting about the design I had in mind and how I wanted everything to flow. At the time her son became sick, who I hope is doing much better these days! With her little man being sick she wasn’t at her computer as often and every time she got back to me she continued to apologize, now can I say it took her like 2 days to get back to me… 2 days… lol, NOTHING to be sorry about! Us moms, are moms first! She was super sweet about everything! After much chatting about the design and how I wanted everything set up she was ready to start making my necklace!
The way I had the necklace set up was to have her children first oldest to youngest.
Larry Jr, Nicholas, & Amanda (me)
Now, All of us have children so I wanted to include that in this gift, so the way I added the grandchildren was to have two names on one chain, parent in front child in back. On each of the 3 chain’s included the birthstone of each parent and child. So this is what we have…
Larry Jr + Larry III, Nicholas +Madison, & Amanda + Jaiden.
She finished making the necklace in the first few days of April and I had it by the 9th of April. I honestly didn’t think the shipping was going to be so fast and I was super excited! My mom’s birthday wasn’t till May 1st… OMG, I had such a horrible time not giving it to her! I was so tempted to give her the gift! At one point I actually started sending her clues as to what her gifts were. It was actually rather fun to watch her and try to figure things out!
Can things with BRAGaboutIT get any better?
YES!!! My brother Nick has had another child since then, Nick Jr born in March! So, What am I going to do now? I can’t leave him out of this necklace. That would just be wrong! Well, BRAGaboutIT has a La Carte section! So now I can simply just order the piece and add it myself!
My experience with Melissa was simply amazing, but what the about product?
Well, I LOVE it… I mean come on!! LOL, If you look closely there is a mistake in my brother Nicholas’s name. I spelled it wrong! Opps… Well Melissa was kind enough to fix the mistake for me! She surely didn’t have to but she was super sweet and did so! =)
My mom loved the necklace but we realized my design was flawed! When she put the necklace on everything gets so bunched together. So we took the necklace and turned it into a bracelet. Using a bracelet that you would use for a charm bracelet we were able to keep everything separated. I will post an update photo when I get the new piece for my nephew.
Everything about my order from BRAGaboutIT was amazing but sometimes it’s hard to come by people that are as nice and kind as Melissa. Yes, Her product is amazing and I couldn’t of asked for anything better but what I loved was how kind she was and willing to talk to me and work with my ideas for a custom design! Some people are creatures of habit and don’t like to change their product’s. Melissa was willing to and I loved that!
