I have a thing for woman-owned shops. Maybe it’s because I’m a woman, maybe it’s because I like to shop and women-owned boutiques are more my taste, or maybe it’s because I saw my sister’s husband leave her; a single-mom who had to raise four boys under the age of ten on her own. Then, maybe I watched as she scraped and struggled through that life-changing event all her way to a successful business. Maybe.

KyKy’s Treasures is a mother and daughter team who began by making simple, beaded bracelets and selling them at their yearly garage sale. They loved doing it so much that they decided to sell them online too. Not only are they woman-owned, they are woman-and-daughter-owned. That’s a bonus woman, right there.

Since they opened in April 2012, they have greatly expanded their jewelry and accessory making abilities to include everything from personalized key chains & bookmarks, to pearl knotted necklaces. They have an adorable Lil’ Princess Collection for their littlest customers and just launched a beautiful Bridal Collection.  They only use the highest quality components such as sterling silver, 14k gold-filled, and Swarovski crystals.

KyKy’s Treasures isn’t just a job for them; they love doing it and they especially enjoy creating custom items. All you have to do is ask and they will work closely with you to design the perfect piece! They sell their designs on Etsy and Luulla, but you can also like their Facebook page and follow them on Twitter for shop info, promotional sales. and occasional coupon codes.

And, because this mother/daughter team is so awesome, they have decided to celebrate motherhood with one of you! A lucky reader will win this Mother’s Birthstone Necklace from their Mother’s Collection.  It is 18″ long and features three 6mm sterling silver satin birthstone beads with Swarovski crystals.  They are strung on a sterling silver, diamond cut, oval link chain which closes with a lobster claw clasp.

The winner will have their choice of three birthstones:

    That sapphire one is making me wish I had a September birthday instead of April.

    If I had to chose one as my favorite, it would have to be emerald, for May, which is my birthmonth!
