you can win a pretty from @BlendCreations

It’s fun when I get to take something I find FUN and share it with you.

When I get to play on Twitter it’s fun for me because it’s been part of communicating with these people who were important to me.

When I was approached by Vivian of Blend Creations to wear one of her charm necklaces it meant more than just sporting a pretty piece of jewelry.

It means wearing a piece of my friends around my neck.

Isn’t it awesome?  I love it. I really do.

Not because I’m an egomaniac or anything (which I obviously AM) but because what it stands for.

So, Vivian is letting me not only have this little piece of Heaven to wear, but one to give away as well!

REPEAT: You can totally win a Twitter necklace (or the other options) for your very own!

Contest details

To win: (in the comments leave an answer) TELL ME ABOUT A PIECE OF JEWELRY WITH A SPECIAL MEANING OR MEMORY ATTACHED.

Dates: 1/27-2/1

Available to: They ship internationally! Anyone FTW!

Extra entry: (tweet or Facebook this comment and leave the link in the comments) “I would like to win the necklace by @BlendCreations that @AnissaMayhew is giving away! http://bit.ly/zZp0nv”

    I have two pieces of jewelry (besides my wedding set) that mean the world to me. I inherited a diamond ring from my Grandma that my Grandpa had bought for her. It’s simple, sweet, and absolutely wonderful. The other ring I treasure is much flashier. I have an 8 ct amethyst ring. I found the stone when my husband and I went on our final pre-kid vacation and we went panning for gemstones. The amethyst is my oldest son’s birthstone.

    It’s a tiny gold bracelet. My mom wore it as an infant. She passed it, along with a dress crocheted by my great grandmother, down to me and I wore them both as an infant. Had a daughter of my own in 2009 and was able to have her wear it as well. We have photos of each of us with identical poses, I cherish it and can’t wait for my future granddaughter to wear it as well.

    My favorite piece of jewelry that has a meaning attached to it is my grandma’s mother’s ring. It has my mom’s and aunt’s birthstones,as well as mine,my brothers, and my two cousins’ birthstones. She wore it all the time, and I always thought it looked like a crown on her finger. And now I’ve inherited it and it reminds me of her.

    When Karen Walrond shot my photo for Beauty of Different, she asked me to bring treasures along with me. I brought the ring my grandmother gave me, that her father gave her. It is the only possession I have in life that, if I lost it, I would be inconsolable. It’s very beautiful, too, but looks like an engagement ring, so I don’t wear it at all. Some day, if I’m ever in a committed relationship again, I will. But until then I just like knowing it’s in my drawer.

    My aunt that is now living in Canada (I’m living in Italy) gave me a lovely gold bracelet when I was small (like 6 or 7). This bracelet has 3 tiny hearts on it and is very delicate..I risked breaking it many times xD lol
    As my aunt is also my best friend even if we are separate and we see each other once a year or every 2 years, I cherish this bracelet and even though it is now way too small for my wrist I keep it in a safe place because I would like to give it to my daughter when I’ll have kids (I am now 24)

    I have a silver necklace with a tiny little bean on it. I love it because my BFF gave it to me when I first discovered I was pregnant with “the red bean” (our miracle baby, and we called her red bean b/c I’m from New Orleans). I wore it every single day when I was pregnant and even now. It was my good luck charm. I never thought I’d get pregnant on my own, and she was a surprise, and truly a medical miracle. And she’s here now, and 3 months old! My little bean is now more like a watermelon!

    Awesome giveaway, Anissa, love your pretty pic and the bling!

    My husband had a friend of ours (a jeweller!) hand craft a gold pendant for me for the Christmas just before the new millennium. He used the gold to write our 3 children’s names in a circle around the outside and held them all together with the year 2000 in the middle. It’s totally unique and, although I don’t wear it all the time, when I do it always gets people turning their head sideways trying to read what it says. I love that a good friend designed and made it for me and that my husband came up with the idea in the first place!

  25. Jennifer January 28, 2012 at 7:55 PM #

    I have several that come to mind, but I cherish the ring my husband designed for our wedding ring. It has holes all through it to represent galaxies in space and 2 diamonds close together to represent the binary of 2 that are us coming together. Around us are small stones to represent our children with their birthstones.

    This fall, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. All of us kids and grandkids made her a necklace as a Christmas gift. We each made her a personalized charm – using shrinky dinks! I drew a rutabaga – because we giggle at how silly of a word that is. My niece drew french toast and bacon – since my mom makes that for breakfast all the time. She has a necklace full of all of us to remind her of our family and all our love for her.

    I have a skull and crossbones necklace that my mother bought me. I was visiting her in Vancouver and I was looking at it in a store, wishing I could get it but I was too short on cash. She made a mental note that I loved it, and bought it for me for my birthday much later. It means a lot to me that she remembered it. Now my mom won’t stop buying me things with skulls on them. Which is A-OK with me!

    When I got divorced and my ‘ring finger’ looked and felt empty, I got a ring with my kids’ names and a stone for each (not birthstones for various reasons, just a stone with their favorite colors). Ten years on and I don’t wear it all the time (any ring on that finger confuses eligible men, IMO, and I’ve moved on in many ways) but I still love having it. Should put it on my right hand, come to think of it.

  28. Kristina January 28, 2012 at 12:53 PM #

    So many pieces of jewelry with meaning in my life; the necklace with a small diamond my husband gave me that I never take off, the ring on my right pinky finger which matches the one my mother wears, the vintage rhinestone broaches from my grandmother. Hard to pick just one.

    My 1st wedding ring is a silver band with a simple sapphire in it. When we bought it, I told Hubby that I didn’t want to spend money on a diamond, I’d rather put the money towards a house. It’s simple but lovely.
    On our 10th anniversary, Hubby bought me a GORGEOUS diamond ring. I love it, but I still love my sapphire one that I got when I was engaged.

    The only piece of jewelry I wear with regularity is my wedding ring. So, it kinda has special meaning! :) It’s not your normal wedding ring as I didn’t want one with a huge diamond to worry about. It’s actually an anniversary band with a few smaller ones, but it’s mine!
    Then I have a collection of silver earrings in various shapes, usually I’ve gotten them in special places so they all have specific memories that go with them. Probably my favorite of those are hearts that have Celtic knots inside of them that I bought when I was working in Yellowstone years ago. :)

    My engagement ring has huge significance to me. I’m not really a blingy sort of person, and my husband didn’t even buy it for me. I saw it every day on my way home from work when we were dating, and I just had to have it, so I presented to my husband-to-be to show him what I would be wearing when we told our families about our engagement. It’s not a romantic story, but something about it sticks with me.

    I have been going to their website ever since you posted about the necklace and gazing at it, so dang right I want one.

    A piece of jewelry – My sister wore my great-grandmother’s wedding ring on her thumb (my gran had HUGE hands). When my sis died, I put the ring on a chain to wear around my neck. At the time, I had recently broken up with my BF of 6 years. I came home to my folks house and my mom crowed, delighted, “Susie got a ring!” as if some magical guy they had never been informed about had given me his ring like a 1950s frat boy to wear on a chain around my neck…still makes me laugh.

    I have two pandora bracelets joined together that I wear everyday. one signifies my journey with Inflammatory breast cancer and commemorates from diagnosis, each time I’ve finished a treatment recurrences etc – the second bracelet signifiies other things I have achieved in the same time. trips Ive taken, doing university papers and passing each semester. The two together remind me of how much I’ve gone through in the last 3 and half years (I’m now metastatic with it in my liver) but also how much else I have accomplished in that time too. Even if I dont win I think I’ll order a twitter necklace as twitter has brought me so many connections over this time – thats an accomplishment in itself :)

    My then-husband gave me a “mother’s ring” on my first mother’s day. It has an opal stone, which is my son’s birthstone. It has a second opal that was supposed to be a holder for when we had a second child, but that hasn’t happened (yay divorce?). So now I just say it’s me & my son – since my birthstone is also opal. :)

    I have a bunch of my mother and grandmother’s jewelry, which obviously all means a lot to me since they are both gone. It’s a tie between my mother’s cross set, which she wore every day, and my grandmother’s ruby jewelry. Rubies are the birthstone for July, which is the birth month for me and my grandma. She always told me growing up that the ruby stuff would be mine when she was gone. And now I have it. (And, as fate would have it, I have a daughter born in July, so she will get it next.)

    A lot.

    I don’t own a lot of jewelry. I wear my engagement and wedding rings and that is pretty
    much it. (Of course if I had a twitter necklace I would totally wear it).

    I do have a bracelet that means a lot to me. My grandmother gave it to me when I was a little girl not long before she died. It is a child’s bracelet so I can’t actually wear it, but I have held onto it all this time because it reminds me of her.

    I recently got black earrings from my husbands grandmother. She sort of has this thing going where she pretends she’s not going to live through the year, so she’s making it “easier” on all of us by giving away her things while she’s still alive. Last year I got some teacups, this year, I picked out the black earrings. They’re heavy with silver and really something I would wear anyway. So I have something of hers, while she’s living to make her happy that I’m wearing it, and when she finally does pass (my guess is that it’ll be awhile)..I’ll have earrings I love to remember her by. Oh, and the teacups.

    My father in law had a mother’s ring made for his mom and after she passed away he took it to the jeweler and had the stones reset so that I had one for each of the girls and one for my hubby (she had three kids) He thought it would be fun to set the colors in red white and blue and at first, I will admit I didn’t like the ring, but then I realized the filagree work on the sides was gorgeous and I really did like the ring just not as a ring, so now I wear it on a chain on my neck and call it my firecracker necklace.

    My engagement ring is a trooper. A work horse. It’s I’m-In-It-For-The-Long-Haul jewelry. There was a matching wedding ring, but it disappeared years ago. After I threw it.
    The diamond at the centre of this ring vanished on another random outing in the Canadian sticks. It was replaced. By a diamond? I’m not sure. Still, it continues steadily to pump out sparkles.

    I have a necklace that my dad made (yes, MADE) while he was living in Mexico. It’s sterling silver, with that Aztec god that they sacrificed all the hearts to on the chain (he made the chain one link at a time by wrapping silver wire around an oval dowel, clipping, and soldering the links so smooth you can’t see the join), and he used acid to blacken the background of it and silver raised lines in foreground to fashion the image; on the belly of the figure is an opal that he found while walking in the desert and tumbled smooth, representing the human heart. I love that necklace, and knowing how each part was made by my dad’s hands!
