MyNameNecklace is Going to the Birds!

Did you know that for thousands of years, people have been wearing bird jewelry? From Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece to Native Americans and the American Art Deco period, birds have been used in jewelry accessories. We love bird necklaces at MyNameNecklace - they are fun, fabulous, and full of meaning and significance. Each type of bird has a different meaning. We elevate the meaning even further by adding a personalized touch to our bird necklaces!

When it comes to mothers jewelry, there is no better symbol out there than the mama bird. The non-descriptive bird is associated with motherhood, assurance, and security. Doves are a common symbol to use is jewelry for moms because they symbolize peace and love, as well as devotion, nurturing, and self-sacrifice - all important characteristics of a good mom! Any mom will surely love to receive a piece of bird jewelry as a gift. It is a way for them to keep their kids close to them, even if they are geographically far apart.

Did you know that the owl represents protection, intelligence, mystery, and wisdom. It is definitely a good bird to be wearing!

Fashion Icon of the Month: Kendall Jenner

The fashion world is all abuzz over a celebrity sister Kendall Jenner as she has taken their world by storm. In recent months she has shed her "Kardashian sister" skin and has become a persona in her own right. Let's take a look at her recent looks which have turned her into this months fashion icon.

We first saw Kendall take her first walk down the big league runway at New York Fashion Week at the Marc Jacobs show. She shocked the world by wearing a see-through shirt, and shed her younger Kardashian sister image.

After her successful runway walk, Kendall dipped her foot further in the fashion pool and modeled the "just off the runway" styles seen in the previous week for Vogue.com in a selfie fashion. Kendall seems to be rapidly catching up to her sister, Kim. Here she is seen modeling a look by Vera Wang

Kendall then jetted off to London Fashion Week and was seen at the Topshop Unique show sitting alongside none other than Anna Wintour. Getting cozy with the right people, we see.

But Kendall wasn't there just to see the latest looks, she was there to work! She made her London debut at Giles, which is personally one of my favorite looks from her.

Kendall made her paramount walk of the runway with the biggest show of the season- Chanel. Once she stepped out onto the supermarket themed runway - no one could argue she officially made it in the fashion world.

From then on Kendall has only risen the ranks in the fashion world. She was recently on the cover of the prestigious magazine Love.

The MET gala is the biggest event in fashion. An event is like the holy grail, and you know Kendall is a front-runner among the fashion IT girls to be invited at the tender age of 18. She wore Topshop Unique to the gala.

Kendall Jenner attended the Much Music and wowed the crowd with her risque outfit designed by Fausto Puglisi. Those side slits went way up, and she definitely stole the show with the talk of her dress. Now whether it was a good kind of talk is up to the reader.

Kendall really proved to us that she really could model with this sexy shoot with her
Interview Magazine photoshoot. The shoot was tasteful yet sexy and Kendall was gorgeous in this simple shoot.

Part of being a Kardashian is having a love for personalized jewelry. The stylish teen showed off her love recently with a personalized bar necklace. Adorable!

The Weekly Jive: Week of August 10th

Welcome back again to the weekly jive, where we discuss this weeks top five trends, news, photos and more. If you see any interesting images on Pinterest, make sure to tag us @MyNameNecklace, so that we can give you a re-pin!

1. Like all of you we were shocked and absolutely dismayed from the sad news regarding the death of the actor, comedian, and all around performer Robin Williams. Williams death sent shock waves throughout the whole entertainment industry, and brought to light the problem of depression even in privileged circles. Depression should be treated and should not be left alone. We will always remember Robin in a positive light, and we at least hope that the publicity surrounding his death, helps more people get treatment for their problems. It's not your fault, It's not your fault.




2. Meteor showers! Did you catch them? The Perseids Meteor Showers occur each August and make for some spectacular viewing. Hope you had a chance to catch them:

3. While sister Kylie was partying with the Biebs, and the Teen Choice Awards were deemed to be rigged by the Internet, Kendall Jenner was chosen as our Fashion Icon of the Month. Check out our feature about her!

4. It was cowabunga at the box office, as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles rebooted with a new movie, which brought a lot of summer movie watchers to the theater.




5. Pop Superstar Taylor Swift was caught rocking an awesome Scrabble Necklace on her appearance on EW! a skit from Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show. Swift is known as a fashion trend setter, and was at the forefront of celebrities wearing monogram jewelry years ago. You can pick up your very own scrabble necklace from MyNameNecklace.
