Faith based jewellery for kids made in South Africa

by | Nov 21, 2022 | Made in South Africa, Things we love | 16 comments

I’m the mom that cheers at the top of her voice next to the sports field. The mom who swallows her tears when her kids do well and when they fall down. The mom that gives one more embarrassing wave or kiss at the gate. Yes, I’m “that mom”, the one that made me cringe… before I became a mom myself. AND I LOVE being “that mom” because somewhere amidst the pressures our kids face, whether at school, in sports or simply amongst friends – I realised that if I wasn’t going to be our girls’ cheerleader, no one else would. The world does far too good of a job trying to keep our kids down and that’s why I am doing all I can to build them up. Thankfully I’m not doing it alone. The “that mom” club is pretty cool and we like supporting our kids and each other. One mama even started a small business aimed at uplifting and inspiring young and old with her faith based jewellery for kids made in South Africa.

Introducing Valori Jewellery

Valicia Meyer started Valori Jewellery in 2021. As a mom of two with a degree in B.Ed.Psig(Hons) and a former teacher, Valicia has always had a heart for children and a love for God. Inspired by her faith and passion, Valori Jewellery focuses on how unique all of us are.

Timeless designs are created as a reminder of our strength of mind and spirit, bravery as well as courage. Simple pieces with a strong message, encouraging us to embrace and celebrate our differences.

12 When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.”

Judges 6:12

And it’s not just for kids…

Necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets made of Argentium silver are available for adults too. What better way to teach our children than by sharing the messages these pieces hold and wearing them with pride, together? There has never been a better reason to go “matchy-matchy”.

More than Faith based jewellery for kids…

Valicia offers genetic brain profiling for adult and kids, facilitates EQ for kids sessions and is a distributor of the My Story Journals and art journal by Educational Psychologist, Dr. Truida Botha. “Children are growing up in a complex competitive world.  These journals are outstanding, creative tools to assist in self-discovery and to cement confidence in your own life story.

Eliana has loved using her My story Journal this year and feels excited to continue her journey of self-discovery with the My Story Art Journal.

New to the Valori collection…

In honour of “My Story Tribe”, Valori designed and created the “Own Your Story” collection. Twine and silver pendant bracelets as well as silver and gold plated necklaces motivating its wearer to live boldly, “owning their story” and the unique path this life is taking them on.

Just another reminder to stop comparing and competing with other. Rather move your focus and start living purposefully with gratitude, embracing the adventures yt to come. Simply be-YOU-tiful!

Where to buy Valori Jewellery & My Story Journals

All jewellery pieces are locally designed and made in South Africa and can be personilised with custome engraving. I added pieces of scripture to our girls’ “Own Your Story” bracelets. Each scripture differs and testifies of the text God spoke through while I was still pregant with each of our daughters. I pray these scriptures over their entire lives and getting to share each with them personally is not only meaningful but also powerful! God has always been part of “their story” even before I got to meet them.

  • The “My Story Tribe” journals can also be purchased from Valicia via the My Kind Ek Uniek website.

*Please note: All orders for 2022 close on the 2nd of December to ensure delivery before Christmas.

    • Lindsay Erasmus

      I am inspired by God to be courageous and fearless and to face all obstacles with strength and dignity. My 3 girls inspire me to be the best version of myself and not to take life to seriously. My husband inspires me to work hard and to never give up. My colleagues inspire me to always look on the brighter (and lighter) side of life and my students inspire me to keep learning ❤️

  6. Liza-Marié HC Meyer

    Dis absoluut pragtig!
    Ek het juis gesit en kuier met my tannie rondom Kersfees- wat gaan ons hierdie jaar gee?
    Ons doen gewoonlik ietsie kleins vir almal, maar kom ons wees eerlik- jy’t ‘n huis vol dinge wat jy nie elke dag gebruik nie, wat gaan jy elke dag gebruik?
    Skoene, klere, juwele, die ketel en die stoof….
    Ons moet maar fyntjies kies om iets in almal se smaak te kry wat hulle eintlik gaan gebruik- dalk is hierdie armbandjies net die regte ding!
    ‘n Boodskappie dat jy die inspirasie is vir jou storie en net jy kan hom skryf ❤️

  7. Bhavana Singh
