Block Party Giveaway: The Vintage Pearl

This giveaway is now closed. Check back on July 4th for the winner!

Welcome to the Simple Living Media Summer Block Party! We’ve got 20 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win!

So let’s get started with a fabulous prize from The Vintage Pearl, a family-owned company handcrafting beautiful jewelry.

The Vintage Pearl was started by mother of four Erin Edwards. She and her husband Ryan create unique handstamped necklaces, bracelets, and keepsakes using sterling silver, freshwater pearls, and birthstone crystals. Their creations are truly amazing and beautiful.

From The Vintage Pearl website:

“The Vintage Pearl began in 2007 as a creative outlet while staying home and raising our kids. It quickly blossomed into a business and continues to grow. I feel extremely blessed to be able to work while home with my kids!”

I adore this lovely necklace I received from The Vintage Pearl–wearing it throughout my day inspires me and reminds me to have courage in the midst of the small challenges that come my way.

Today Erin is generously offering one reader a $100 gift certificate to The Vintage Pearl!

  1. I love this jewelry and I know its been 6 months or more since I’ve bought my last piece of jewelry and that’s only because I went to a party and bought some earrings to help my sister! I don’t buy it that often so this gift certificate would be fantastic!

  2. Mary Ann says:

    What beautiful jewelry! The last time I received jewelry was Christmas 07, my husband gave me a pair of earrings.

  3. I’m also an email subscriber! :-)

  4. ooooh, lovely!

    The last piece I received was from my husband. He bought me a replacement set of earrings that a friend had lost. What a great guy I have!!

  5. About a year ago, I bought myself a pair of stud earrings, because my little one was attracted to the dangling ones and tried to pull them!

  6. hmmmm….. If buying myself a plastic beaded necklace for $5 at a sale counts, three weeks ago. If you mean REAL jewelry….. about 20 years!

  7. these pieces are lovely! i don’t remember the last time i received a piece of jewelry as a gift, but just two weeks ago, on our first vacation away from the kiddos, i bought myself a necklace from a street vendor in NYC.

  8. Wow! I’d love to win this! The last piece of jewelry…hmmmm…do the earrings my girls gave me count or are we talking real jewelry. Got the earrings at Christmas, but hubby surprise me with a diamond necklace (3 diamonds for 3 kids) three children ago ; )
