Inspired by Henna {Product Review: Eternal Girl}

I am so honored to be introducing a blogger friend of mine, Julia. She is the owner of Eternal Girl Etsy shop and blogs over at Puella Aeterna. In Julia's words: 
"Eternal Girl's jewelry is made of my own hand-drawn designs. Each drawing features an object that has specific symbolism to henna tradition."
Learn more at Eternal Girl's About Page.

I went through the shopping experience with Julia and chose the White Orchid Necklace. The orchid is one of my teenage daughter's favorite flowers, so I knew she would love this choice. It is beautifully hand drawn and set in a very pretty antique-style bronze pendant. The bronze colored chain is long and can be slipped over the head, so it's really easy to put on (you don't have to fiddle with the clasp at all). However, you can order a shorter chain as well. I just opted for the longer length.

When the package arrived, my oldest daughter LOVED the origami box that it came in. The dome shape of the pendant is really cool too. 

 And, as can be seen in these photos, my older daughter had to share with my younger daughter. She likes the necklace (a LOT) too. My lil diva of a toddler wanted to be the model for the photo shoot (and big sis agreed to it). 

As anyone can learn from visiting Julia's shop, "in henna tradition, flowers represent joy and happiness." I chose the simplistic white version, but many of Julia's items are made-to-order, and you can request colors with no problem at all. Flowers do have the ability to cheer people up, don't you think?
