Live & Style Necklace Contest

31 Mar

Live & Style Necklace Contest

Live & Style magazine, which also has a weblog, has a necklace give away going on. The deadline is April 2nd, so if you plan to enter, get going.

You can find out the detail from their weblog. The necklace (which they provide a photo of on the link I just posted) is hand-crafted from k-ritt jewelry.

While they don't provide a lot of detail about what this multi-strand necklace is made of, I'm guessing it is pearls, crystals, and some kind of chain, probably either silver or gold-filled.

StyleBites Offers Jewelry Give-a-Way

StyleBites Offers Jewelry Give-a-Way

Rachel at Stylebites has a double wammy post about jewelry. First, she offers some great advice on how to adorn yourself. I especially agree with this statement:

Bigger isn't always better. Let your pieces speak softly. A delicate necklace or charm bracelet can add just the right amount of interest to an outfit you otherwise wouldn't accessorize. It suggests that you're wearing the piece because you love it, not because it matches.

and

Don't fake it. Whenever you can, choose real metals and stones. The investment will last a long time and you'll always notice the difference.

Now, to top off this great advice, she has a great give-a-way going on for this beautiful Peggy Li necklace. You can find out the details at the Stylebites site, and chop, chop because this is only running through April 6th. So get over there ASAP so you can enter to win.

Milan’s Fashion Week Getaway

13 Mar

Milan's Fashion Week Getaway

Okay, yes, this is a stretch adding this post to my Jewelry Contest category, but it is a contest and considering you might win a trip to see a Dolce & Gabbana fashion runway show, and we know they are usually pretty good about including some kind of jewelry-related accessories in with their clothing, I figured it was worth a post.

Here are the details from Details magazine:

Here's your chance to experience fashion firsthand with DETAILS! Win a getaway for two to Milan's fashion week with tickets to Dolce & Gabbana's star-studded runway show-the hottest in town-including a trip backstage to meet the designers.

Simply subscribe to DETAILS at this special low rate – one year (11 issues) for only $9.97. That's less than $1 an issue! Plus you'll automatically be entered for a chance to win the Dolce & Gabbana Fashion Week Getaway to Milan!

Grand prize includes: THE ULTIMATE PRIZE:
3-day, 3-night getaway to Milan including round-trip airfare for 2 2 VIP tickets to the Dolce & Gabbana runway show, plus you and your friend will go back stage with the editor in chief of DETAILS, Dan Peres

By the way, I noticed they have some pretty decent full-length articles on men's fashion posted on the Details web site.

Win a Trip from Swarovski

Win a Trip from Swarovski

Swarovski has an ultra cool holiday contest this year. One super lucky jewelry lover and her guest will win a trip to New York City and see the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting up close and personal.

Here are more details from the Swarovski web site:

In 2007, for the third consecutive year, a sparkling Swarovski Star will crown the Rockefeller Center® Christmas Tree.
Comprised of 25'000 crystals with 1 million facets, the Swarovski Star measures 9.5 feet (2.9 metres) in diameter by 1.5 feet (45 cm), making it the largest star to ever grace the tree. It was designed with two different effects to sparkle during the day and illuminate the sky at night. An exact replica of the star will be on display at the Rockefeller Center® Plaza, adjacent to the Swarovski kiosk, giving visitors a close-up look.

One winner will receive the following:

• Round-trip airfare to/from New York City
• Two evenings at a luxurious New York City hotel
• Two tickets to the 2007 Radio City Christmas
Spectacular Show starring the famous Rockettes
• Invitation to a special Swarovski party at Rockefeller

This necklace is a celebrity favorite and has been worn by Paris Hilton, hilary duff, Haley Duff, Shannon Elizabeth, Claire Daines, and Sophia Bush.

I can't say that I'm overly impressed with the Paris Hilton connection, but I like this necklace and layering is still pretty popular right now. So, I say go for it. Head over to Coutoture ASAP so you can enter to win.

I went to the ManEater Threads web site so I could get a better picture of the necklace for you.

Patricia Candido Jewelry

16 Aug

Patricia Candido Jewelry

Jewelry designer, Patricia Candido, definitely has a point of view in her mixture of primitive materials and retro techniques. The weaving and use of elements such as feathers reminds me of my macarame days, yet she obviously has a sophistication about her work.

Enjoyed by celebrities like Halle Berry (who I could so picture in one of Candido's chokers), Barbra Streisand, and Rosanna Arquette, this jewelry designer's work has appeared in movies and all kinds of print publications.

Here's more from her bio on her web site:

Each Patricia Candido creation incorporates natural elements and vibrant colors reminiscent of her native Brazil. Beginning with the world's finest precious stones, gold and silver, she combines them with such organic materials as feathers, bamboo and lambskin (unlike others who set gemstones in leather, she uses braided cotton cord denim). Her creations, from a signature collection of 10-20 pieces to custom-made designs, can fetch anywhere between $55 and $750 retail. In less than two years the brand has already been featured on the covers and in the pages of Elle, Marie Claire, InStyle, Lucky, Variety, Fitness and the Los Angeles Times, among other publications.
