Giveaway – Faraway Galaxy Pendant

giftwrapGreetings Earthlings!

(Oh, oh, sounds like Crystal’s lost her marbles!) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Not really! It’s just that I can’t seem to get the celestial theme out of my head after Friday’s post! One glance at this week’s giveaway and I started thinking of faraway planets and twinkling stars. ๐Ÿ˜€


This pretty pendant is one of those items that is even more beautiful in person. (Click on it for a little better view – but a photo can’t capture the depth of this piece.) The focal point is a gorgeous artisan-crafted polymer clay bead with a color palette that includes sleek black accented with blues, greys, whites, a touch of green, and a very subtle hint of sparkling glitter. For accents, I’ve added Swarovski Crystals in Montana Blue AB and Czech glass beads in Jet Black. All metal components are Sterling Silver.

The pendant is suspended from a fabulous Bali sterling silver bail that should accommodate most chains in your collection. Or perhaps youโ€™ll wear it on a leather or satin cord!

Measurements: just over 2-1/2″ long (including the bail).

  1. I agree that most people wear 20% of their clothes 80% of the time. But not for myself. I make a conscious effort to rotate my clothes from week o week so I wear all of my things.

  2. hmm i think it depends on the daily routine of the person… on my part, i usuallymake it a point that nobody can notice that i already wore the short that i am wearing so i wait for about 2 weeks beforei wear that clothes again…

  3. my favorite book when i was a kid is “greek mythology” by edith hamilton.. that was a thick one but packed with lots of stories and legends about both greek and roman myths… until now i’m still reading it and got thrilled to each stories as if i haven’t read them before…

  4. Yes, I agree with the saying that โ€œWe wear 20% of our clothes, 80% of the time.โ€

  5. My favorite book as a child was Hansel and Gretel. I read as an adult for my little niece and nephew and they loved it too. We read it like all the time ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Yes, I totally agree that wearing around 20% of our clothes is true,at least for me. Trying to work on that..and will succeed(someday)!

  7. My favorite childhood book is Mysterious Island by Jules Verne and I never read it again since those days because of being afraid that my memories about the character images and the story lines would change and the mystery would disappear. I want to still see it through the eyes of a child.

  8. Just wanted to let you know that I added your contest to and hopefully more people find your blog.

  9. I totally agree with that statement, i have all kinds of clothes in my closet and in my dresser, but i always wear my favorite pair of black trousers or jeans with almost the same shirts all the time, i probably wear more like 10% of my clothes 80% of the time =)

  10. My favorite book when i was a child was “The Tin Soldier” for some reason i found it quite appealing, i think it was more the images that were on the book than the story itself that i liked the most though..

  11. Question 2: well, I think my favorite was the whole Little House on the Prairie series. And I have to admit I’ve read these again many times as an adult

  12. Question #1: I definitely agree that we wear 20% of our clothes, 80% of the time…it sounds really weird, but it’s so true!

  13. Question #2: The Narnia series (all 7 of them)- and I still read them now, all the time. There’s just something magical about them!

  14. I’ve never thought of it before, but in my case the saying is true. So, yes, I think most people wear 20% of their clothes, 80% of the time.โ€

  15. My favorite book(s) were the Little House series. I received the whole series one Christmas and read them repeatedly. I still have them and passed them along to my daughter, but somehow they didn’t capture her attention as much as Harry Potter did. I may just have to dig them out and give them another read.

  16. I tend to wear 20% of my clothing 80% of the time because when I find a few outfits I like, I wear them because they make me feel good. I should mix and match my wardrobe, I have lots of clothes, but in the morning I am too busy. Thank you for this nice giveaway and please count me in.

  17. A book I read as a child was “Are you there, God, it’s me Margaret”. I loved that book, but haven’t read it in many years.

  18. I agree that most people wear about 20% of their clothes about 80% of the time. In the case of my kids it is more like 10% of their clothes about 90% of the time. I wish family members would stop buying them more clothes!

  19. My favorite book as a child was called “Pickle for a Nickle”. After I had kids my mom scoured the internet to find me a copy of this book, which was difficult because it is not a classic. So I read it to my kids, and it was silly and boring. But I felt like I had to keep it since my Mom went to so much trouble to find it.

  20. Question 1 – I think it’s true! I wonder what would happen if people had less clothes? I keep buying more because my style changes so often! … But I do sell some of them though, every now and then ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Question 2 – I read a lot when I was little, but one of my favourite books was The Neverending Story by Michael Ende. I’ve read it over and over and I still love it. I have it in my bookshelf now too!

  22. I definitely agree that we wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time! I can never seem to find the right outfit to wear somewhere, but my closet is packed to the max!!

  23. When I was a kid I loved reading stories by Hans Christian Andersen. My favourite was Inchelina (later made into the Disney film Thumbelina). I still read it to my niece ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. I usually wear my favorite things over and over. I would have to agree with that statement.

  25. Man Who Didn’t Wash His Dishes…..does anyone remember this book? I read it a couple of years ago because i was reading it with my daughter. i don’t know where the book is now.

  26. I agree with โ€œWe wear 20% of our clothes, 80% of the time. Because i wear my underwear, 20% of my clothing, 80% of the time. ๐Ÿ™‚


  27. My favorite book as a child was goodnight moon. I read it to my son all the time!


  28. I loved to read the six bullerby children by astrid lingren. and i did it repeatedly when i was sick in the bed. as an adult i think i started to remain lingren literature style when i moved from our old house and when i had to pack all my book.

  29. Alice In Wonderland has been my favorite ever since my mother read it to me as a child–I’ve read it many times, and collect copies.
