Here’s the thing. At Brazen Woman we like to be unique. After all, our tagline is ‘Your Life. Your Way.’ But when we show up to a party, lunch date or Girls Night Out only to realize that we’re wearing the exact same bracelet as our BFF, medium strength friend or even friend-of-a-friend, well, to say we’re bummed out is an understatement. Of course, great minds think alike and all that, but when your significant other is choosing your trinkets because he saw them on your neighbour and thought they look pretty—let’s just say that sometimes it’s not the (poorly conceived) thought that counts and leave it at that.

But as always, we’ve got a solution. We know you—like us—want to wear jewellery that’s pretty, unique, and has meaning too. Combine the 3 and bazinga: we’ve got pieces that really reflect who we are.

Take for example, one of our faves, Citrus Silver, a completely personalized line of jewellery that feature dates, inspirational saying, or names. All pieces are tailor made just for you or someone special.

Who is Citrus Silver?

This Toronto-based company was created by one entreprenurial woman who wanted to create personal and unique mementoes of events or inspirations that you want to keep close. Working in sterling silver means that Karen can create affordable, timeless beautiful pieces. All jewellery is hand-stamped with careful precision once you select the letters and numbers, and since sterling silver loves being stamped, it holds a clear deep impression for a look that never fades.

Brazen Loves: Citrus Silver Long Penny NecklaceWhat We’re Loving Right Now: Penny Jewellery

While we adore all of Karen’s creations and are proud owners of her silk wrap bracelet, amongst other shiny treasures, we’re currently enamoured of her new Penny Necklace. Talk about unique! You can now mark a special year by wearing the now retired iconic Canadian Penny.

Just choose your penny in the year of a special milestone, such as your birth year, the last year the penny was produced (2012) the year you were married (or maybe the year you were divorced!). Karen has Canadian pennies in stock for most years from 1938 to 2012 and if she’s missing your year, she will hunt through dirty penny jars until she finds what you need.

*Never fear, she rigorously cleans the penny before creating your pendant*

The Penny Necklace

  • A penny enclosed in a sterling silver frame that reveals both front and back of the coin
  • Your choice of 30″ or 36″ Curb chain (either length can be slipped over your head)
  • The Penny Necklace is $75-$80
  • To order one for yourself or as a gift, visit

    I’m kind of torn between being all egocentric and picking 1984 (the year I was born) or picking 2008 (the year two very important people in my life deployed to Afghanistan – it was a hard year for all of us, but we came out of it stronger, closer and more appreciative of every moment).
