I’m happy to introduce you to Donna from Crow Steals Fire today! She is a master at personalized jewelry! Just take a look at her etsy shop and website and you’ll be sure to find any kind of personalized piece that you might want!

For some, school has already started. For the rest, it won’t be long. And for some of us, our school spirit lives on whether or not school is in session. Maybe it’s because I grew up in the South, where football games and some serious school spirit reign supreme. Regardless, I’d love to share with you some of my favorite school designs that are all designed to be worn everyday — dressed up or dressed down.
My hand stamped washer is one of my most popular designs because I can personalize it in so many ways: with school name, school mascot, fight song title, and even graduation year.
You Pick the School, You Pick the Necklace – Sterling Silver Necklace
Inspired by the pennants and ribbons of the Harry Potter movies, I hand forged this sterling silver ribbon to look like fluttering fabric. I can hand stamp one word on the ribbon. The ribbon pendants come in three sizes to fit your school name or to wear together. Of course you can add some bling for school colors.
Personalized Ribbon Necklace
In addition to hand stamped pieces, I adore working with fine silver clay and creating pendants using actual wax seal impressions. Instead of wearing your initial and birthstone, how about choosing your school’s letter and selecting two Swarovski crystals for your school colors. No matter how conservative your office attire may have to be, this design will fit right in and you’ll still be ready for the game after work.
Choose Your School Letter – School Spirit Necklace
Now my personal favorite is a pendant I make with a Victorian wax seal that says “While I Live I’ll Crow” and a rooster. You guessed it: I’m a University of South Carolina Gamecock alumnus. Sometimes, I wear it like this and sometimes I add a wax seal pendant initial along with it. But I think it’s a great pendant for anyone who needs a little inspiration. It’s particularly perfect for any new graduate — now go out there and let them know you’re ready to take over the world!
While I Live I’ll Crow Vintage Wax Seal Necklace
School spirit jewelry doesn’t have to be big and gaudy. (Although that can be so much fun at the game!) You can show your love of your school with a tasteful, personal necklace that you can wear everyday.
