Isn't She Lovely? A Giveaway...

Last night I fell asleep before 10p and woke up to 63 text messages from myriad girlfriends about what's really important in life.  What we are all wearing to the Clemson Homecoming game on Saturday obviously!  One has to be sure about what one is wearing.  Lots of factors to consider; weather, distance required to walk from car to other tailgates to TigerTown (some boots are not made for walking) and most importantly, does your jewelry accurately reflect your love of your team?  One can't be showing up in some randomly thrown together whatnot (ewww), particularly for Homecoming. 

I don't particularly love to shop, it can be stressful and overwhelming for me, especially when I am shopping for something specific (read: something I have invented in my head that may or may not actually exist).  So when I find something I love, I get it.  I am traditional and super modest in the way that I dress, and I am a huge fan of fun jewelry.  I think jewelry is the perfect way to change what you already have in your closet.

This gorgeous bracelet is a great example of the kind of jewelry I love.  It's not dainty so it stands out, even with the long sleeves of a cardi or jacket.  The color is one of my favorites, and I'd love to see it with red! 
Lucky for you, I am able to give this away this stunning bracelet from international jewelry artist Andrea Barnett!

"Andrea creates stylish classic  jewelry  for those of us who are stylish classic women.  Choosing native materials, all Andrea Barnett's jewelry is made in America.   This bracelet of etched stone with vermeil stations  features a red bronze medal.  These religious medals are the best selling items in Andrea's collections.    Jewelry featuring the religious medals come in a variety of styles - necklaces, earrings and bracelets.   All is handmade in America, and  fabulous."

To enter, do any or all of the following and leave me a SEPARATE comment for each entry.

1. Visit the website and report back on your favorite piece.
2. "Like" their page on Facebook.
3.  Tell me what you'd wear this bracelet with or who you would give it to for Christmas.
4.  Wish my Tigers the best of luck on Saturday!

Love these! My favorite was the Eight Bronze Crosses. I would wear it with so many things! A black dress, a while blouse... the list goes on and on :)

I like many of their items. One of the items that caught my eye was the Pearls in Bronze, Champagne, Blue, Green, Gold and more with Vermeil Accents.

as for the bracelet, I would wear it with most anything. I think the color and the accents of the item would go with most any outfit for day or for evening.

Good luck to your Clemson Tigers! My team (Southern Miss) hasn't won a game yet after 18 consecutive winning seasons, so glad to see others getting to enjoy some winning games.

I am kind of addicted to cardigans, and I think that bracelet would add some color to a cozy brown cardigan I love to wear on dreary days.

I love the rosary necklace and the gold cross jewelry and gold pendant necklaces. I really love gold jewelry, even though I don't wear it that often.

Obvi, good luck to Clemson! I wish I was there for homecoming, so wear extra cute orange for me and live it up!

Susie Stancil said...

Personally, I would wear this like a neutral color and pair it with virtually any color. As for who I'd give it to for Christmas: me. I've been good all year!

Susie Stancil said...

There is a gorgeous necklace on the website, mixed chains, glass pearls, faceted crystals that I die for. It's a total mood enhancer.

And I will cheer on your team. God knows the Illini stunk up the field when my girlfriends and I went to Homecoming this year! But we had a fab time (12 aging sorority girls in orange pants? How can that not be a great time? ;)
