Mariamor Designs – The Perfect Handmade Jewelry for Traveling

Do you live by an inspirational quote that you wish you carried with you every day? Do you want to spread more love into this world? Are you in need of some new jewelry that brings a smile to your face? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I have exactly what you are looking for!

Full disclaimer: I have bought all of my necklaces with the exception of my sponsored Wanderlust necklace. My opinions are my own.   

About Mariamor Designs

Mariamor Designs, a jewelry company based out of Orange, California,  is owned and operated by Mary Grace Schmidt. Mary creates handmade jewelry with love by using real American currency that have been collected from the ground. There are dozens of coin designs to choose from and each one can be either strung on a necklace, bracelet or made into a ring. Each piece of jewelry is made with only the best materials; sterling silver (the same metal used by Tiffany!), gold-filled, or semi-precious stone chains. A CZ cross, heart or star charm can also be added to any jewelry piece. The options to customize your lucky penny with Mariamor Designs are endless!

What makes Mariamor Designs jewelry special, is that each handmade coin is designed to spread love, happiness, beauty and joy into the world. When you wear your piece of jewelry, you instantly feel a part of what it represents. For those that find themselves lost, a piece from Mariamor Designs is a simple reminder that they are loved and special in their own way, every single day.

Love Club

Mariamor Designs’ Love Club is Mary’s way of spreading a little extra love into the world. Each month a new coin design is created with a purpose in mind; a reason for that message each month. It ties to world events, holidays, weather patterns, or trending topics.

With each coin, you receive a new piece of jewelry: necklace, bracelet, keychain, and even wine glass charms! This amazing membership is available in two different versions: Love Club and Love Club Premier. The Love Club members receive monthly gifts, and quarterly pieces of high-end jewelry for ONLY $10 a month. The Love Club Premier program receives monthly gifts with the same coin, but retailing a value of $60 each month for only $19.99! Each membership receives their monthly piece of jewelry with a beautiful letter explaining the theme of the month and the inspiration behind the coin. Members receive these pieces of jewelry weeks before they are released to the public or can even receive limited edition coins! Some previous Love Club items have been:

What makes this membership fun is not only the monthly pieces you receive, but also the individuality promoted. Each piece is meant to be interchangeable and can be modified specifically for you! After a year of the Love Club I have a dozen different coins I can wear depending on my mood and what message I want to share. Because of the versatility of Mariamor, I have removed some of my coins on necklaces and placed them on my bangle instead. As I mentioned before… ENDLESS options to entertain your creativity.  You can also layer your necklaces and bangles to look cute and spread double or triple the love! My favorite combo is my Wanderlust necklace with my All You Need Is Love  bangle. I fulfill my wanderlust while spreading the message that all we need… LOVE!

Throughout the year, members not only receive their monthly piece of jewelry, but sometimes they receive a bonus piece or a special gift as well. As an avid traveler, I loved my Love Club luggage tag gift! It is always on my suitcase when I travel and I can always easily spot it out!

Finally, the best part of Love Club is being able to purchase the pieces you LOVE the most as many times as you want and for a discounted price! Members receive up to 40% OFF of Mariamor “Love Club Extras” that can be added to your shipments, as well as an additional 10% OFF the whole website! For example, you can purchase any additional Love Club coin for only $12 as well as a new keychain, charm, bangle, or necklace to accompany it (prices vary). They make the perfect gift!

Love You

A LOVE YOU dime on a sterling silver chain was my very first Mariamor Designs jewelry piece, I received it shortly after Mary opened her business in 2016. I brought my Love You necklace with me to Europe and wore it constantly to help spread love throughout the cities. At the time, Europe was going through a series of tragic events and I wanted to help spread love where it was needed. Whether it was walking the streets of Florence, or sailing in Lake Garda, Italy, I loved wearing my necklace. It has a classic and simple design that any girl would “love” to have!

Be The Change

Inspired by one of Ghandi’s most influential quotes, Be The Change is one of the most inspiring coin designs Mariamor offers. As I said before, when you wear your Mariamor Designs’ piece, you instantly feel a part of what it represents. When I went to the Tujatane School in Zambia to donate school supplies and Mariamor Designs’ necklaces, I knew exactly which necklace I wanted to wear that day: (Shelby’s) Be The Change penny and peach moonstone necklace. The necklace and my trip made me feel as if I was a part of something bigger than myself. I was spreading love, happiness, beauty and joy into these children’s lives and I believe that is the purpose of Mariamor: to wear a piece of jewelry that will make you want to inspire yourself and others, even if it is just making someone smile.

All You Need Is Love

Inspired by The Beatles, the All You Need Is Love quarter is one of my favorite pieces of Mariamor Designs. The message is simple and effective. I have this wonderful coin on my silver sterling bangle with a heart charm that fits perfect on my wrist. During my recent trip to Las Vegas, I wore this piece every day because though the city is holding strong, it is also in need of love. In hard times like these, spreading love is exactly what we need and I was proud to be able to represent love with Mariamor Designs in Las Vegas.


I love every piece of jewelry I have received from Mariamor Designs, but my absolute favorite is my Wanderlust quarter necklace. As my readers know, I travel often, thus I have a lot of wanderlust in my bones, so what better piece of jewelry to wear when I travel than my Wanderlust necklace?!?!? I never travel without it and I swear it brings good luck and love whenever I wear it. I’ve traveled to South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Las Vegas with my Wanderlust necklace and they have been some of the best trips of my life. Could it be because of my necklace? I think so!

Just use the code WANDERLUST25 at checkout and plan your next trip while you wait for your necklace. Hurry! Offer ends on November 30th, 2017!

  • Melanie

    I tend to wear pretty simple jewelry and I love when there is meaning behind a piece. The only jewelry I wear consistently is a small heart my husband gave me when we were just dating. This stuff looks so great and right up my alley! I may need to grab some for myself (or a friend)!

    • oursweetadventures

      I am the exact same way! My husband, Adam, also gave me a heart necklace and its the only one I wear until Mariamor. Her deigns are simple and the meaning behind the necklaces goes with my personality and taste so well. I hope you do buy one for yourself or a friend!

  • Medha

    I love the designs, they’re so minimal and the inscriptions (like the ‘she believed she could, so she did’) are pretty cool too!

    • oursweetadventures

      Those two inscriptions are some of my favorite ones.

  • Ritika

      I am so happy to hear that – I am sure they will love the designs.

  • Becca Talbot

    I actually have a whole stack of coins left over from my travels, which I never know what to do with – I just keep them in a bag thinking “I’ll do something crafty with them one day”. What a great thing to do with them! I wonder if she’d make a customised one for my blog slogan, “always carry on”? x

    • oursweetadventures

      I am sure she can! You should email her and ask – I know she would be happy to help you!

  • Debbie Arcangeles

    Mariamor Deigns – Do they ship their products to India? If no, then can I get these on Amazon?

    • oursweetadventures

      That would have to be a question to ask Mary (CEO of Mariamor Designs). I do not believe she sells them on Amazon.

  • This Epic World

    Oh my god! I LOVE the currency one! Such a unique idea? i have a box full of coins from different countries! This is just perfect!
