Arlyne, the designer of the beautiful One Life Jewelry line, describes herself as a New York City soul in sunny Florida, and you can see both places reflected in her pieces.  They have the sleekness of the big city with the whimsy of the beach, and the combination is nothing short of stunning.

See what I mean?  The Tree of Wonder necklace features a gold disc engraved with family names and topped with a sterling silver tree.  Arlyne's version of the necklace has her grandparents' names on it so she can always carry their guidance with her.  Isn't that lovely?

I was born on Valentine's Day so hearts always catch my eye, and the My Growing Heart necklace also caught my, well, heart.

The brushed silver satin charm sits on a gold chain and I adore how delicate it is.  And I love Arlyne's story about the meaning behind the name - "I just recently learned that to be happy means to GROW. And in order to grow, you have to take yourself out of your comfort zone.  It is when we are faced with a big problem, or what seems to be a brick wall that we are actually being invited to step out and step up...."  Words to live by.

So many One Life Jewelry designs have a meaningful sentiment behind them, like the You Are the World To Me necklace.

With the quote "To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world," this is such a great alternative to more traditional mother or grandmother necklaces.

This Open Heart design was inspired by this saying "The dance of the flower in the wind, in the sun, in the rain, cannot be understood by the head; the heart has to be open for it."

And the One Thousand Kisses piece is decorated with crystals like teeny tiny kisses, inspired by one of my favorite lyrics from the musical RENT, "Live in my house, I'll be your shelter, Just pay me back with one thousand kisses."

One Life Jewelry also has hand-stamped initial and name necklaces but with a fun twist.  The Modern Angel has a little but of a punk edge.

And the Sweet Leaf birthstone initial necklaces have a little bit of sass.

There are so many more gorgeous necklaces and earrings in the One Life Jewelry shop.  Arlyne's tagline for the store is "Inspiring and personalized, infused with joy."  Couldn't have said it better myself!

And one lucky AFOMFT reader is going to score a piece of One Life Jewelry for her very own!  Arlyne has graciously offered to give away this beautiful Sea Star necklace engraved with the name or initials of the winner's choice.

It's the perfect piece for summertime!
