How About Some Bling?


***UPDATED: This giveaway is now closed****

My obsession with jewelry started young.

In 5th grade, as part of a long, drawn out Madonna phase, I wore rubber bracelets up to my elbow. On both arms. Every day.

When I tired of those, I moved on to long strands of pearls. Then it was dangly earrings. Closely followed by gaudy, plastic charm necklaces (anyone remember those?). In short, if there was a girly bauble to be had, it would inevitably find its way to my overstuffed jewelry box.

These days my style is (thankfully) a little more subdued, but my love of all things shiny and pretty is alive and well. So, for this giveaway I thought it would be fun to "spread the bling."



This is a sterling silver pendant on an 18" box chain, set with a blue topaz. I have a similar necklace that I wear almost daily. It looks just as good with jeans as it does with dresses. It would make a great gift for yourself or someone you love.

For a chance to win this pendant, simply leave a comment on this post by 10 p.m. on Friday, April 25th. One comment per person please (duplicates will be deleted). You do NOT have to have a blog to play along, but please provide a valid email address where I can contact you. I'm willing to ship internationally, but I'm not sure how the duty and taxes will work on your end. (If you're willing to handle that part, please feel free to enter.) I will randomly draw a winner and notify you via email over the weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and good luck! Oh, and don't forget to check out all the other fantastic prizes up for grabs this week as part of the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival!
