The Gift of Classics with a Twist: Michelle Chang Jewelry Giveaway


If you are looking for a great present for the girl who is into more streamlined and interesting jewelry, Michelle Chang Jewelry is the perfect place to find what you are looking for.



Michelle Chang Jewelry features organic inspired pieces that are heavily influenced by nature and classic shapes and lines.



Michelle mainly works with gold and sterling silver and she also incorporates amazing diamonds and semi-precious stones in order to increase the sparkle factor in her designs.



The thing that I love most about Michelle Chang Jewelry is that while she has some adorable designs such as puppies and kittens, they have a totally classic feel to them and are not too cutesy that you will grow tired of wearing of them. That is one of Michelle's main objectives when she creates jewelry, because she wants to create a piece that will be a staple in your everyday jewelry wardrobe.


Michelle Chang Jewelry also had the honor of being a featured Etsy Seller in October and you can click over here to find out more about this talented designer!

My Review:

I was sent an item from Michelle Chang Jewelry for a review



Each Michelle Chang piece comes beautifully packaged in her signiture box that is perfect and ready for gift giving!


The Snowflake Necklace in Sterling Silver and White Sapphire is the most perfect necklace to give as a Christmas present. Without being too Christmasy it can be worn throughout the year to remind you of this magical season.


This lovely necklace is delicate and is perfect for layering with other necklaces. The snowflake pendant is organically shaped and is approximately 1/2" high and comes on a glittery 17" chain. The pendant and the necklace is made entirely from sterling silver.


I love the addition of the tiny white sapphire in the middle of the snowflake because it adds a touch of sparkle and glitz to an already amazing necklace.

If you love this necklace but would love to see it in gold, the necklace is also offered in 14k gold as well!

The Giveaway:

One lucky winner will win the amazing Snowflake Necklace in Sterling Silver and White Sapphire
valued at $88!

This giveaway is open to everyone no matter where you may live! The giveaway will end on December 28th!

Charlize Theron for Vogue

Charlize Theron appears on the cover of December's Vogue and I just had to share these amazing shots that appeared in the newspaper. Love the fact that they incorporated the ocean into these shots.




The Gift of Sheen: Erin K. Designs Giveaway

This is the first giveaway to kick off my Stylish Holiday Event! I'm so happy with all the amazing sponsors that I have lined up!

I love jewelry as you all know and one of my favorite things to do is to find great new artists and designers. I recently came upon Erin K a very talented designer all the way from
Melbourne Australia.


Erin K specializes in unique and contemporary handmade jewelry that incorporates gold, silver, diamonds, pearls and other gemstones. Founded in 2006, Erin K is dedicated to providing exemplary service and is always up for creating custom pieces that will be loved and cherished for years to come.




Erin is inspired by nature and you can see that inspiration reflected in every Erin K piece that she creates. She is an award winning artist and loves to create everything from everyday jewelry to custom engagement and wedding rings.


My Review:

Erin was so kind to send over numerous pieces from Erin K so that I could conduct a review


Each piece came in fancy, sturdy gift boxes with the Erin K design proudly shown. This is great for not only easy gift giving but a great place to store your jewelry when not in use.


Erin sent me four amazing pieces from the Erin K collection.


The first thing I was sent was the Birdcage/Bird Earrings (Small) and a great matching Birdcase Necklace


These adorable earrings are lovingly handstamped in sterling silver with a birdcage and bird design. I love how they are not the same but tie in so well together! Each disc measures 13 mm and is polished so that there is a great shine and sheen to the metal.


The second item I was sent is the Tweet Necklace which is no longer featured on the site, but I'm sure if you love this necklace you can work something out with Erin!


I love how this necklace feels on because it has a very great weight to it, that makes you feel like you are wearing something of substance. I was actually surprised at how heavy this necklace is, which means that a lot of sterling silver went into the making of this necklace.

I love the little details of this sweet necklace which features a little bird house surrounded by sweet little birds. No detail has been overlooked with a little bird perched on the roof of the little house.


Finally I was sent the Cupcake Necklace which is currently on sale for $90. This great necklace features the quote "Have your Cake & Eat it" which shows that you can have it all. I love how there are great handstamped cupcakes featured on this necklace as well.

This yummy cupcake designed necklace is handmade in sterling silver, with handstamped lettering that has been oxidized. You can feel the great quality of the necklace because it is way more heavier than it looks. Even the chain is very high quality and a nice parrot clasp adds a great detail to this necklace.

The Giveaway:

Erin has kindly donated the amazing set that was featured in the review from Erin K . The giveaway consists of one lucky winner receiving the stylish Birdcage/Bird Earrings (Small) and a great matching Birdcase Necklace! This great necklace and earrings are valued at $150!

This giveaway is open worldwide no matter where you may live!

The giveaway will end on December 15th, 2011
