As I was prepping for my trip to Hawaii, I had a few very special jewelry pieces made specifically for the trip. One of them said #TRAVELLUSH, another had Kauai’s coordinates on it and the last one was a beautiful evil eye necklace. It was the first thing I packed and the most important pieces I wanted to bring on the trip. Sadly, the three pretty pieces all got lost during the trip. I was absolutely devastated when I could not find them at our first hotel and then once I got back I searched everywhere. They were no where to be found. I’ve felt physically sick about it and extremely stressed out and heartbroken.
I am devastated that I can’t share styled shots with these special necklaces, but I still wanted to share them with you all since they are so lovely. I had the above photo taken before we left for Hawaii. It perfectly displays the excitement and spirit of adventure I was so looking forward to on my trip. The #TRAVELLUSH necklace is from one of my favorite shop owners and bloggers, Alisha Nicole. Her shop is called Early August and they carry some really magnificent jewelry. It’s definitely a go-to for delicate, on trend, everyday jewelry pieces.
The coordinates piece is also so special. It’s a way to personalize something in a nontraditional way. Personalization is something that I really love and just happens to be what Taudrey specializes in. In addition to their gorgeous necklaces, Taudrey also personalizes bracelets and rings and even has an awesome bridal category.
Finally, the evil eye necklace, which was handmade by artisan Elena V all the way in Greece, was probably the hardest loss of them all. I couldn’t wait to wear the beautiful long pendant necklace with my bathing suits and coverups on the beach. I already had so many outfits planned with it. It’s the perfect length for spring and summer outfits and just the small touch of blue in the eye is stunningly beautiful. It breaks my heart that I will never be able to wear this handmade beauty!
I’m so sad. And I know these are just things, but I think the personalization factor really makes them feel so much more special than that. And the thing is, I’m not the type of person who loses things, so this is really weird for me. Hopefully it won’t happen again!
Have you ever had something special go missing when traveling?
