You guys, as many of you know, we recently launched a jewelry line called 153 Jewelry. It’s been such a fun journey for us, and we’re excited to announce that we’re introducing THREE new products to our line (with many more to come). When we started this journey, we wanted all of it to be meaningful from the design of each piece to the name of the company. We chose 153 because each number has a special meaning for us, and we chose each of these new designs because they have special meaning for us, too! I can’t wait to share the “WHY” behind each piece with you!
One of my favorite new pieces of the 153 Jewelry line is the doggie paw necklace! If you follow me on social media, then you know that I’m a dog mom, and our dogs mean so much to us.
Before Tim and I ever started dating, he was a dog lover too, which began the story of how we became dog parents. Tim brought his dog, Bronco, home in 2010. Sadly we lost Bronco nine years later, a couple of months before our wedding. We’ll never forget Bronco, and he even inspired Tim’s children’s book, Bronco and Friends! Soon after we got married, we decided to take the plunge and become “dog parents” together. What was supposed to be one puppy to love, turned into THREE, and we wouldn’t change it for the world.
Now called “The Tebow Pack” we introduced all three to our home: Paris the Dalmatian, Kobe the Golden Retriever, and Chunk the Bernese mountain dog making us a family of five. Besides Tim, these three fur babies really are my best friends. They always know exactly what I need, and when I need it. Dog hair is my new sparkle and I don’t care. Being a mom to Kobe, Chunk, and Paris is the greatest blessing and there’s not a day that goes by where they don’t make me feel like the most special woman in the world. Our dogs provide unconditional love, support, joy and companionship every single day. That’s why these dog paws mean so much to me, and hopefully they’ll mean a lot to all of the dog lovers in your life too!
The two circles were such a special product for us to launch. Every time I would see the two intertwined circles, one a little bit larger than the other, it reminded me of the bond between a mother and daughter or a big sister and a little sister. My mom and step-mom are two of my biggest cheerleaders and my fiercest defenders. Their support and love are something I’ll always cherish, and this necklace is such a great reminder of that. It’s also super special to me as it reminds me of the bond I’ll forever have with my little half-sister, Franje, who, sadly, passed away in 2019 after battling the effects of being born with Cerebellar Agenesis. My mom, step-mom and Franje are a big part of the woman I am today, and to me, this necklace encompasses those relationships perfectly. I’m hoping this necklace reminds some of those women in your life how much they mean to you and how much they have helped you become the person you are today. What an incredible foundation to have like the love of a mother or daughter, sister or friend.
To me, the arrow represents direction and protection for anyone on a journey. Isn’t that all of us, you guys? No matter what stage of life you’re in, you get to choose the path you take, the direction you go, and if you’re anything like me, I need wisdom from loved ones, wisdom from Jesus and encouragement from mentors to choose the right path. I need wisdom to stay the course on the journey God has for me. Arrows also historically represent protection, and I believe this is the perfect gift for any loved one who needs direction and protection for their journey along the way! This necklace can be a reminder of that still, small voice of Scripture, “And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.” Isaiah 30:21.
Ultimately, we hope that through these pieces, you can deepen relationships, encourage friends or loved ones, or even just remind yourself that you’re not alone whether it be through those close relationships with family or our fur babies who need us. We also hope these are fun, classic pieces of jewelry you can wear for years to come!
