“So you all know I love Small Shops! So I figured that maybe each Saturday and Sunday I feature a new shop to introduce you to! I love the idea of community and what better way to help each other out than help out these amazing small businesses. I wanted to post last night but being that I was in the ER with my husband, I was a little busy. But here we go.
I love the idea of wearing my heart around my neck and what better way than to have a necklace that proudly sports my babies’ names on one side and their birthday on the other. This beautiful necklace is from Tiny Tags!
I also wanted to take the time to introduce the face behind the brand. Meet Melissa from Tiny Tags!
I’m Melissa Clayton and my greatest joy since starting Tiny Tags has been hearing from moms about what having a Tiny Tags necklace means to them. From new moms beaming with pride and love over their new bundle of joy, to moms who are wearing their necklaces in remembrance of their little ones, or as a symbol of strength for those loved ones dealing with a personal struggle, Tiny Tags is a company dedicated to “celebrating the love in our lives.” Our jewelry–and more importantly our mission–is to celebrate children and to give back to children and mothers in need.
As a mother of three healthy children, I am deeply aware of life’s blessings, and I am passionate about giving back. Every month, Tiny Tags donates to Save the Children and the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and our goal is to keep on giving.
I started Tiny Tags because like every new mom – I was overjoyed when my first son was born and wanted a piece of jewelry to celebrate my little miracle. When I shopped around for a ‘mommy necklace’ I couldn’t find one that was simple, classic and made to last forever. All the jewelry I saw was poorly made so I decided to make one myself and that was how Tiny Tags started many years ago. I am committed to making the finest, best ‘mommy necklace’ on the market with over 14 artisans are involved in every Tiny Tags and we guarantee tags for life.
My absolute favorite is our circle pendant engraved with a child’s name and birthday or if your a mom of many – all your kiddies around the circle. I love our circle pendant because it can be worn with a little black dress or a t- shirt – it is the perfect mommy necklace. I also love it because you are able to add a sweet message on the back of it like ‘we love you mom’.
Tiny Tags is an absolute extension of what is in my heart and like every mom knows – children are our most precious gift. Having a child to hold, tuck in at night and watch grow is a gift to be cherished and adored. Tiny Tags is about celebrating this gift.”
