Stretch Rings

Probably the biggest trend in costume jewelry is a stretch ring. It has elastic on the back of the metal and the metal is in several sections so it can fit most ring finger sizes. I have trouble finding costume jewelry at the moment that isn’t built on this concept. I only own one of these but I like it because it’s pretty comfortable. Plus, since I live in the desert I don’t have to worry about my hands swelling in the summer and not being able to get my ring off which is why I don’t wear sterling silver rings anymore. Have you tried out stretch rings yet?

Onyx Earrings Giveaway

This contest is closed but a new one starts on Monday!

Today is feeling kinda blah, which sometimes is worse than having an all out bad day because at least when you have a bad day it comes with cool stories and ranting rights. This is one of the reasons that I give away jewelry every week. To combat the blah. It infuses a little joy into the winner’s life and I get to read lots of great comments and have my faith in humanity restored. The winner can keep the jewelry or give it away to someone else. To enter the contest leave a comment with who you would give this to & why or a random act of kindness after reading the rules.

The prize this week are sterling silver and onyx dainty earrings in a circle shape.

The Rules:

Please don’t sell the jewelry, it’s to make whoever receives it feel special. The winner will be chosen by a random number generator at 6pm on Friday Mountain Time.

Contestants should be over 18 & live in the lower 48 states because I’ll be paying shipping. I won’t sell or abuse your mailing address.

If you’ve already won a Random Act of Bling, you can win again, but please give the jewelry away at random.

Please leave a valid e-mail address, this is how I will contact you if you win. The subject line of the email will say something like “Random Acts of Bling: You Won” I’ll also announce the winner in a blog post. If I can’t reach you then I might have to relist your prize.

If you want to link or stumble this post it would be appreciated but is not required.

Comment/trackback/link should be about a random act of kindness or who you would give this jewelry to & why.

Druzy Pendant Contest

047.JPGUpdate:  This contest is now closed but a new one will start on Monday.

This morning I wasn’t very nice to someone. I wasn’t mean, I wasn’t even thinking about them, I was just tired & didn’t feel like being awake yet. The person smiled at me & wasn’t effected by my general grumpiness. Within minutes my entire day had turned around & I was smiling & cracking jokes.

Since I’m not a morning person, I have to discover my own ways to pass on kindness. One of these is to give away jewelry at random. Maybe the person needs it, or maybe they just like the piece & it makes them smile & feel special. The winner can either keep the jewelry or pass it on to someone else. The contest is easy to enter just read the rules & then leave a comment with who you would give to & why or a random act of kindness.

The prize this week is a druzy quartz pendant set in sterling silver with a 16″ sterling chain. Apparently, druzy doesn’t photograph well, but it looks like the inside of a geode, this one has all kinds of colors in it.
