Mother's Day {review & giveaway} Hand Stamped Ring from The Taffy Box CLOSED

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
mothers day button


Good Evening, and again I apologies for the delay in posting this review and giveaway, this weekend was just a non stop whirlwind of places to be and things to do!!! But I've got a minute now to tell you all about a wonderful Etsy shop called The Taffy Box and its lovely creator Koryn.


Koryn is a mommy to three boys and one girl, and wife to a military officer. Koryn enjoys "walking, cooking, baking, kayaking, rubber stamping, shopping and of course, making jewelry! In short, anything domestic (except the laundry, of course!)" And here is a little bit more about how Koryn chose the name The Taffy Box for her shop: "The Taffy Box started as an actual salt water taffy box that I had from a beach vacation. It was empty, so I filled it with all my bagged and priced creations to take along with me to work at preschool, or when I visited friends, or had get togethers, so they could "shop" from the box! The name sort of stuck." Mmm taffy! You'll be saying yummy too when you start looking through Koryn's amazing jewelry!!! Inside The Taffy Box you'll find a fantastic selection of handmade bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and rings. There's even some great accessories for men and tags for your pets. 

The very generous Koryn made me a lovely Sterling Silver Stacker Ring with the word Blessed stamped on it.


Isn't it amazing, and how cute is the little box it came in! I was very impressed with this ring, it's subtle but makes an amazing statement. The construction is sturdy and the letters have been darkened to make them really stand out from the crowd. There are even two hearts on either end of 'Blessed'!
I wear my ring on a chain most of the time because of work, but I love how well it sits on my fingers when I'm going out. Already I have shown it off to so many people, including a very jealous sister! Koryn was great to work with and the ring arrived in not time at all, with a lovely brochure tucked inside the envelope. I highly recommened The Taffy Box to anyone looking for unique handcrafted jewelry to give as gifts or to keep as something special for yourself.
Here's a few more amazing pieces that I've hearted from The Taffy Box...

Oh so cheeky - 'In One Ear, Out The Other' copper disk earrings
$10.00USD

 So sweet 'Charming Children' Sterling Silver Charm Bracelet
$65.00USD

 Inspirational 'Life Is A Journey' handstamped sterling silver spiral necklace
$36.00USD

 Psst, perfect Father's Day gift alert!!!
Custom Handstamped sterling silver Guitar Pick
$20.00USD

Buy It
The Taffy Box is filled to the brim with gorgeous jewelry that can be personalized to suit any occasion. You can view the full range of Koryn's talents at www.TheTaffyBox.com. 
And remember 'Life Is Sweeter In The Box'.

Win It
Today marks the end of The Candid Reviewer's Mother's Day blog event and I am super excited to share with you that our last giveaway sponsor will be Koryn and her Taffy Box. Koryn is going to bless one lucky reader with their very own Hand Stamped Sterling Silver Personalized Message/Name Stacker Ring, similar to the one I reviewed.
