Fun…didn’t know you had a blog…

We still need 14 posts before we can pick a winner! Definitely let all of your jewelry-loving friends know!

I love this. I have announced this giveaway at too.



this would be great, thanks for the opportunity!

What a lovely necklace. What millimeter size is a 34ss flat back?

Hi Michelle!

Thank you for the kind compliment and great question! A 34ss flat back is equivalent to 7.069-7.272 millimeters. Keep sending those great questions!

very nice piece. the crystals look huge – must be a lot of bling bling *g*
Love the clasp – is it magnetic?

Thanks Kerstin! Thank you for participating in our give away!

Yes, that particular clasp is a Beadelle™ Magnetic Clasp. They come in gold or silver plating and are a great alternative to traditional lobster claw clasps and for those who struggle with them.

The Beadelle™ Magnetic Clasp also comes with an extra lobster claw to give you the option of easily attaching one onto a jewelry piece you already own. These clasps are strong and secure, so you don’t have to worry about your necklace or bracelet falling off!

My daughter is getting married soon after the first of the year and would love this beautiful necklace. We’ve been looking all over for a design that is not as hard to see from a distance and I do believe this would work wonderfully! I just know she’d love it, and if we actually won this necklace it would save an amazing amount of time and money. Even if I don’t win it I can still make it, as I have a few of the same items in stock already so either way it is great!
Thanks so much for sharing, and at just the right time for me. 🙂

Hi! I am the daughter who is getting married that Sue P. mentioned. I do love this necklace and Mom has promised to make it for me IF she does not win it. She said she can even make the earrings to match. I am so excited! I hope the other comments are posted soon so you can have the drawing so we’ll know if we are winning or making the necklace.
Thanks so much for perfect timing for the perfect item! I love it!

This necklace is beautiful! I love the combination of sizes, shapes and colors!

Wow!! Beautiful necklace. Elegant and perfect for this holiday season.
Can’t wait to find out who the lucky person will be to win this lovely piece. Good luck to all!!

What a lovely necklace! It would look beautiful on a bride. Good luck to all out there!

I would like to enter the contest. I was wondering what size the necklace was…14-16 inch?

Thank you for entering Lorraine! The necklace fits like a choker and is 14 inches.

HI! I am the little sister of the Jennifer that will be married after the first of the year that Sue P. told you about. Jenn and Mom both have been telling me to look at this necklace, so I did. It is really pretty, and I know Jenn would love wearing it. 🙂
I hope more people post soon so we can find out who the winner is 😉
Thanks so much for a contest like this. Hopefully I will win it and can give it as a wedding gift to my sister. Of course she would know I didn’t make it, but maybe I can help Mom make either a bracelet or earrings to match.
Thanks again,
Valerie P

I love working with crystals, and this necklace is a beautiful example of what can be done with them! My daughter is getting married in October, and this would be a fabulous accessory for her! Thank you for the opportunity to win it!
