custom creation that I won from CT JEWELRY DESIGN Blog Jewelry Giveaway August 1,2009.
I have never won a giveaway before so naturally I was so excited and grateful to be the winner of this custom charm necklace. Each custom charm is of heirloom quality and hand-stamped with your personal message or engraving with a sweet freshwater pearl and swarovski crystal as accent beads. I asked CT to have my daily mantra "Never Give Up" added to the charm - I think it came out perfectly.
I didn't get a chance to take a picture of me wearing it- but I'll add that here later . I really like the adjustable length of the leather cord and the cool little little jingle it makes when I move every now and then- it kinda has a meditative Zen to it. ;-)
What I also love the most is the cool eco- friendly packaging it came in. I love this delicately decorated, screw top tin container- I can reuse this for small beads on the go at my vendor table, or to carry my tea bags in. There are so many possibilities and my carbon footprints will barely be visible. Not to mention it's super easy advertising- I've gotten so many compliments on the necklace - then the follow up question "Where did you get that" got a quick answer with the twist of the cap! Awesome idea CT;-)
CT, I LOVE my necklace! I wear it every day with pride. Thank you for sharing your work with me. Visit her beautiful jewelry designs at
