Accessories make a perfect gift for any special occasion. There’s so much thought dedicated to the process of choosing the right article that will match your friend or loved one’s personality and sense of style. Some would choose to match it with a person’s color preference or skin tone. For a change, why not customize the piece to icons which define a person’s appeal and favorite things?

Unlock your best memories of a special someone and create a precious keepsake out of them. Full-time mom Tatiana JeanIna” Bautista – Moran has recently introduced a novel gift idea of personalizing a charmed locket necklace with little trinkets inside. “Favorite Things,” as Ina would call them, are charming neckpieces which can give more character to a person’s fashion statement. Aside from being an accessory to an outfit, the gift itself becomes more meaningful for the person receiving it as each necklace is tailor-made in collaboration with the giver himself.

“I really involve buyers in the design process. I let them go through my selection of charms, locket frames and chains. They get to mix and match pieces which remind them of a memorable experience or perception of a special someone. There are also statement charms and letters, should they wish to spell out how they feel about a person, exactly,” shares the pretty mom, who seem to have inherited the business acumen and creativity from her young looking aunt and fellow mompreneur, Mimi Vergara – Tupas.

“It’s a great way of showing your appreciation to a friend, relative or lover. In a way, it channels the kid in you as this design process will inspire and ignite your creativity, just like a little child who’s busy with his drawing or painting. In the end, it’s a necklace chosen and made by you. I am just the person who puts the style elements together and seal the memory into a locket necklace. It’s a great exercise of the mind and feelings, as it takes you down the memory lane while you choose the icons that would suit a person’s personality and image.”

“This just started out as a hobby which later on realized into an online business. I pay my clients a visit so they can personally select and design the necklaces. Prices vary depending on the type and number of charms, plus the size of the locket ,” explains Ina.
“What makes this gift unique is its sentimental value and the fact that it’s very personal. These statement pieces are unique and do not have replicas in stores because they are created specifically for a certain someone.”
