Giveaway – Blue Jeans Pendant

Hi there 🙂

Welcome to week 17 of my weekly giveaways!

Every Monday I have a new contest and an item of jewelry is the giveaway.

If you are here for the first time, it’s very nice to meet you!

If you are one of my treasured regular readers – let me say again, “Thank you! You are the best!”

Be sure to either subscribe to this blog, or bookmark it, so you can easily check back every week for the latest giveaway and never miss any of the fun!!!

This week’s giveaway is a sterling silver and sodalite pendant.


A pretty blue cabochon stone is the focal point, and it’s set in a sleek sterling silver setting that features graceful swirls and scrolls.

Sodalite is a wonderful “denim blue” color with a white matrix.

This piece has a generous bail so it should fit on most chains or cords in your collection.

Measurements: Approximately 1-3/4” from top to bottom, including the bail.

Giveaway – Blue Jeans Pendant — 126 Comments

  1. My favorite breakfast is kedgeree, a sort of poached curried fish and egg dish. Almost classy enough to eat with your necklace! (no, I will not hush about that. That is a great necklace. You rock for offering it.)

  2. I have made jewelry– the surviving efforts can be seen at my Etsy shop. But I’d love to learn how to fancy stuff, like beadwork and wire wrapping.

    Not as fancy as that pendant though. I’m never that shiny!:D

  3. My first real job (punching a clock and all) was at a fishing lure plant. I glued pieces of plastic together and stuck weights and stuff inside. We worked with a lot of chemicals that would probably not be allowed in the work place today. One day there was a fire and we were told to get 3 blocks away just in cast the building blew…

  4. I learned to sew very early and at 7 I started using my mom’s industrial sewing machines (to make clothes to my Barbie doll LOL) when she was not watching me because she wouldn’t let me “play” with the machines. (I had few accidents with sewing machines when I was 1 and 3 years old…). I was 8 when she found out, and she started giving me work instead of being mad at me! I had to sew parts of blazers and help ironing the clothes before they were going to the stores. I was paid few cents per piece sewed or ironed (my mom used to sew over 500 blazers/month). But I guess that doesn’t count that much because I was working for my mom and not always I would get paid.
    So, at age 13 I started working in a food stand. I had to serve customers, clean, and cook. I didn’t like that job and I quit four years later to pursue my carrer in architecture. 🙂

  5. I mainly make origami jewelry now. My interest for jewelry started when my sister used to make bracelets and necklaces to sell to her friends. I like beading too!

  6. My first paying job was as an electronics technician for a very small company (the owner and one other person). I used to build and help design circuit boards in a backroom of his house. At 4:00 every day his wife and kids would come into the shop and everyone watched Star Trek.

  7. My favorite breakfast is French Toast with real maple syrup and a nice cup of tea.

  8. When I was a teenager I used to make wire flowers and make them into earrings. My kids got a stone polisher for Christmas one year and we would make some of the stones into necklaces.

  9. My first job was babysitting my two cousins, now they are a foot taller than me!

  10. I love making jewelry with beads and silver, I have lapsed for awhile but have two new stepgranddaughters so that gives me fun reasons to take it back up

  11. I worked in the jewelry department at Kmart – and I am STILL an expert at changing a watch battery – 13 years later – haha!

  12. I LOVE a good southern breakfast – eggs, grits, biscuit and gravy, bacon… oh yummy. Of course, most mornings I eat Special K Waffles – but I still love the good stuff! 🙂

  13. I HAVE made jewelry before, but nothing fancy. I just dabbled in your basic beaded bracelets. I did have someone at a store one day who asked where I got my bracelet – and it was one I had made! But I never really pursued it. Lack of time, I guess…

  14. My first real paying job was as a shopgirl in a super-chichi children’s clothing store. I’m certain it violated all kinds of child labor laws, but then, most of the nannies who brought the kids in to shop there probably weren’t legal employees either!

    It was certainly an interesting experience.

  15. My favorite breakfast is french toast. So much so that I’ve been known to have french toast for more than one meal a day.

    Scrambled eggs are always good in a hurry, of course. But on most days I just have cereal or oatmeal.

  16. Let’s see…the first job that paid money was probably babysitting, in high school. After taking care of an often screaming baby for 40 hours in one week, my desire to ever have kids plummeted for about 3 years!

  17. For breakfast, my favorites are waffles with fruit, oatmeal with lots of mix-ins, yogurt with fruit, and poached eggs. Usually not all at once, but sometimes a little bit of everything is just right. 🙂

  18. In high school, I spent several years making beaded jewelry. Mostly seed beads, with some fimo beads that I designed thrown in, and a mix of hand-strung and loom-made.

  19. My first job was at a warehouse packing boxes and working on assembly lines, which was not fun. Thanks!

  20. I haven’t made jewelry and never thought I’d like to try; I think I will leave the creativity up to other talented people. Thanks!
