September Giveaway with Spiffing Jewelry - custom stamped id bracelet

Giveaway CLOSED
Congratulations, Trixx!!
Thanks to all who participated and promoted.  I appreciate it greatly.  While you may not have won this giveaway, I'm offering a 10% discount 'til Sept. 30, 2010, to all who participated.  Simply add the code SpiffingJewelryGiveaway to the note to seller at check out and I'll refund your discount to your Paypal acct.  I will be double checking the list of participants so no non-participants, please.

Today, for us, is the first day of school.  The kids got off okay and I am breathing a sigh of relief.  September (I know it's technically still August) is a month of many changes.  Additionally, September 2 is my 3rd "Etsyversary."  I officially opened my shop on that day in 2007.  So, I thought this would be a great time to have another giveaway!

I'm excited to have Annie Nygard's, Spiffing Jewelry, as sponsor for this giveaway.  I came across Annie's shop a while back and loved it.  Simply visiting her shop will put a smile on your face.  It's bright and cheery.  Annie's jewelry is both casual and fun and make a great gift for yourself or a friend.  Here's more about Annie:

I've been crafting since I was old enough to hold a paintbrush, and I've tried every craft I could get my hands on... but once I discovered jewelry making, I just couldn't stop.

I got into making jewelry after discovering these handmade charm bracelets that I wanted to get for my bridesmaids as a thank you gift for being in my wedding... but I soon found out said bracelets would cost me nearly $200 a piece! The crafty-gal in me quickly said "I could make that", and off I went. I made my bridesmaids, junior bridesmaid, flower girls, grandmothers, mom, mother in law all jewelry for the wedding, and my own wedding jewelry as well. I then made cuff links for all of the men in the bridal party.

Shortly thereafter I used leftover beads to make the original Spiffing necklace, which I wore so often, I had to replace the cheap-ish beads I'd used with higher quality crystals and pearls. Every time I wore that necklace out of the house, I would get a compliment from a stranger, followed by the inevitable question: "Do you sell your jewelry?" For nearly a year I kicked myself each time this happened, wishing I had simply a business card or a website...

After getting married I decided there was no better time to take on a huge project like starting a business.  My goal is to provide super fun jewelry to help all women wear a bit of their personality on their sleeve (or ears, wrist, or around their neck)." [source]
Annie has generously offered a custom id bracelet for this giveaway.  That's right, you can have any one word (including signs for those who may want their Twitter user name) custom stamped onto an aluminum tag and strung onto 30" of  genuine suede cord.  You even get to choose the cord color.



Thank you Annie, for making this giveaway possible!

  1. Impossibly torn between the bright, cheery colors of the Spiffing Outrageous Earrings -- http://www.etsy.com/listing/46307410/spiffing-outrageous-earrings -- and the simple individualism of the Custom Song Lyric bracelet (http://www.etsy.com/listing/55025364/custom-song-lyric-cuff-bracelet-in -- already know my lyrics)

  59. I love the Id bracelets and especially the song cuff bracelet! For our second anniversary I had my cake decorating friend make us a cake with a bunch of red roses and a single black one, with the lyrics from my favorite song that he sings me to sleep with.
    "Like a black rose blooming wild... Love you to Death"
    Actually I have been looking for a new ID bracelet, my old one broke after 7 years. Was really sad....
