I am often looking for a gift for my girlfriends that is unique, special, and sentimental. I hate giving a gift that I know they will outgrow or throw away in the near future, because I want them to remember our friendship whenever they see it. This held especially true when searching for gifts for the bridesmaids in my upcoming wedding. But it’s difficult to find sentimental gifts at affordable prices. Luckily, Alli’s Originals has come to the rescue with adorable, affordable, and beautiful jewelry for any lady!
Alli Grosberg’s idea for Alli’s Originals started about 12 years ago when she made a picture frame with dried flowers for her mother-in-law on Mother’s Day. Her creativity was so impressive that she began making the frames for others to give as gifts. Eventually she became inspired by an anklet she bought in the Bahamas, and decided to move into jewelry making. She began with letter bead bracelets, and then learned how to hand stamp metal and expanded Alli’s Originals to what it is today. Each piece of jewelry that you purchase has been designed by you and handcrafted by Alli’s Originals to create one very sentimental piece!
