Beyond Words Designs {Giveaway}

pregnancy loss necklace

I introduced you to Stephanie from Beyond Words Designs a few weeks ago and am thrilled to announce that she’s going to be sponsoring a giveaway here at NKU this week!

“I am an artist, mother, wife, writer, amateur photographer, expert gift wrapper, and chocolate connoisseur who loves everything about pregnancy and motherhood!  Honestly, I don’t think there is anything more beautiful than the relationship between mother and child . . . and this has become the subject of my art.  The joy of pregnancy and motherhood.  The grief of pregnancy and infant loss.  I have experienced both and find healing in the painting of each.” ~Stephanie

Stephanie sells prints of her artwork for purchase (I’m still trying to figure out which ones I want for my home) but recently launched these beautiful necklaces, available on sterling silver chains or on a black satin choker.

We’re giving away your choice of necklace on the satin choker!!

Each necklace is a Giclee print from her original artwork finished off with hand painted touches so that each pendant is unique. They also have a lovely weight to them and are beautifully displayed on a 16 inch silk choker with sterling silver clasp.

This piece is truly a keepsake. Stephanie even personally hand makes each pendant.

I have a necklace with her print “Gone to Soon”.

“Loosing a child during any point in pregnancy is devastating. And often women are not allowed to grieve for an early loss ~ a miscarriage. I wanted to honor these women ~ these mothers ~ by creating a piece representing the life ‘Gone Too Soon’ . . . because a mother will always remember her child.

I am keenly aware that there are few appropriate mementos for a mother in grief. I created ‘Gone Too Soon’ in hopes of offering a beautiful image that will speak to a woman’s heart.” ~Stephanie


These necklaces make a wonderful gift to yourself, or friend, as a memorial necklace. And they are also a perfect gift for your doula and midwife friends.

You can also use the code “Mama Love” to get 20% off your order when you spend at least $20.00 on all items (one time use only) .

  1. Michelle Y says:

    I would love one of these. They are beautiful.

  2. Michelle Y says:

    I think my favorite is the Phoenix design.

  3. awesome idea! :)

  4. Thank you for collaborating with Stephanie for a giveaway! I was very impressed with your original feature of her site.

  5. I like Patience and Phoenix very much, but my favorite is Gone too Soon. The colors are beautiful. I have 3 angel babies, so that one speaks to me the most.

  6. I liked Beyond Words Designs on FB!

  7. Liked NKU on FB!

  8. Shared the link to the giveaway! Fingers crossed!

  9. I would love to win- I remember when you lost your baby- I ha just lost mine. It was terrible. I loved your necklace.

  10. I looked at all the options- and I think I would pick the “Gone too soon” pendant. It would mean so much to me.

  11. Stephanie’s work (and Stephanie herself!) are so beautiful. I had the pleasure of chatting with her briefly at Blissdom, awkwardly interrupting her to get one of her lovely cards before the next session started. I think if I had to chose one of her pieces, it would be ‘gone to soon’. Even though I’ve experienced a pregnancy loss, I wouldn’t keep the necklace for myself. I would give the necklace to a childhood friend of mine who is celebrating the anniversary of the loss of two of her children this spring. Her first daughter was stillborn at term and her second daughter was born just over a year later and lived for a month before dying unexpectedly (two weeks ago she would have been a year old). Her pain reverberates so deeply with me. I think one of Stephanie’s necklaces would mean a lot to her.

  12. I like Beyond Words Designs of FB.

  13. I like Naturally Knocked Up on FB, too!

  14. St. Elsewhere says:

    I love those.

    But I don’t fulfill your terms and conditions so don’t include me.


  15. Great giveaway! Thanks!

  16. Faith and Sacred are both beautiful!!!

  17. I like Beyond Words on fb!

  18. This are absolutely beautiful, Stephanie is truly talented. I agree there is nothing more special and amazing than the connection between a mother and child. I think Phoenix is my favorite but they are all fantastic – this necklace would make a perfect gift for my doula.

  19. Ooh yay I love Steph’s art!

  20. I love these necklaces and Stephanie’s work, I have one of her personalized paintings! Love her work so much!

  21. Great giveaway!

  22. I love her phoenix design, ultimate fav.

  23. I like Beyond words on fb

  24. I like NKU on fb too

  25. I just shared this post!

  26. I love Phoenix (though it was hard choosing between that one and “gone too soon”). Would be a beautiful way to remember my wee one lost about a year and a half ago. That being said, my favorite colors were on Starry Starry night….loved how that identified with water birth, which I also experienced when my daughter was born. They are all gorgeous, and I will keep them in mind for gifts in the future.

  27. I want to win!!!

  28. The pregnancy keepsake necklace is beautiful!

  29. I like beyond words on FB

  30. I like NKU on facebook too!

  31. I shared this giveaway on my fb fan page

  32. Beautiful work!

  33. Wow! Happy ICLW … what a beautiful blog! I love your combination of recipes and information about healthy living for fertility. I found that when I changed my diet, I finally got pregnant with a “sticky” baby after more than four years of trying and loss. Thank you for putting this information out there!

    And what a fantastic giveaway! These pendants are beautiful.

  34. And … I love “balance” and “gone too soon.” (Thanks, too, for stopping by my blog … so glad I found yours!)

  35. Robyn Heath says:

    Her artwork & jewelry are beautiful and touching!

    ‘Sacred’ is the one that touched me!

  36. Robyn Heath says:

    I ‘liked’ Beyond Words Designs on facebook

  37. I love gone too soon, it’s a great way to remember my angel baby.

  38. I’d love to be entered in this giveaway. I just experienced my first pregnancy and miscarriage. I have been looking for a tangible way to remember this pregnancy, especially as mother’s day approaches and I am no longer pregnant.

  39. The necklace I would get is “Gone Too Soon.” Love this work. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

  40. The one that brings tears to my eyes everytime I’ve seen it since you introduced us to Beyond words has been gone too soon. My friend that I met my husband through was pregnat but does not feel she would make a good mother. She knows our problems and we were going to adopt her baby, but sadly she miscarried…

  41. Michelle Y says:

    Liked you on facebook. FInally! Don’t know why I waited so long to do that…

  42. These are so beautiful– what an amazing concept and driving force.

  43. I am in love with that “Gone Too Soon” piece. (You know my story.)

  44. I like NKU on FB. :)

  45. What a lovely giveaway with some beautiful art and jewelry!

  46. The Phoenix necklace is my favorite, which would be in honor of the two babies we lost in the last 13 months, Nehemiah and Solomon. These are so lovely…

  47. Oh! I just now discovered this giveaway! I would love to win it!

  48. I would love to win one!

  49. I would love to own the “Gone Too Soon” necklace as well. I recently had a miscarriage, and it was your original post on this artist that made me aware that people get mementos to remember lost pregnancies. I love the idea.

  50. Liked Beyond Words Designs on Facebook.

  51. Already like NKU on FB!
