IT'S HERE!!!!!!!! IT'S HERE!!!!!!! IT'S HERE!!!!

OK so it took all of my adult patience to not rip into this box without taking pictures first ( as the inner child would most definitely do!)but I wanted to savor this prize as much as possible to preserve the memory of receiving a true work of art that I CAN WEAR! (Thanks Erin for reminding me to take my time and savor the moments)

This package just so pretty. That's what made me stop and make sure I take this step by step! It is such a beautiful color and the ribbon is such a cool compliment! (I'll probably keep this box in the keepsakes because I am just that mushy)

So I opened it and still it was like another gift. So well protected in the bag!  I was so shaking with excitement I had to take a minute (OK not a whole minute)

It is so much prettier in person! ( If you can believe that! ) The purples are exquisite and the dangle is the perfect compliment! Not only is the focal stunning (Thanks Jennifer by the way I thought I followed you but I didn't and now I can't find you...HELP) the work Lori put into is of such high quality I am in awe! (Don't ever doubt whether or not you are a true artist!) As I have said before the is a treasure to me and words can not express it enough!

I told you I couldn't wait to get it in my 'Hot little hand'

Now here is the next step do I just put it on a simple elegant silver chain or do I attempt to bead a chain?  (I am leaning towards the chain because I don't want to cheese this up) And what do I pair it with?     Hummm.................Honey!!!!!
Thank You Lori I absolutely love this!!!!!!!

Always Believe


  1. Awwww, c'mon - I think it could use just a LITTLE cheese, don't you?

  2. Laurel~
    OK what do you suggest? Went to your blog again(I forgot to hit the follow button) and you are a funny lady! Thanks so much for visiting!

  3. What a fabulous prize, Kristen! I couldn't think of anyone more deserving of such a lovely gift, and it is obvious that you will treasure this beauty forever :-)

    I'm keeping my beading simple at the moment, teaming a little beadwork with a little I would team this gorgeous pendant with a simple sterling chain, to really let it take centre stage :-) B. -xo-

  4. I think I agree too a simple chain would make this beauty take center stage!
    You are so sweet thanks for stopping by!
    Hugs Always!

  5. Kristin.that was so much fun! I had no idea what was in the box so I was right along for the ride while I read your so cute blog! You had me in suspense waiting to see what it was. I had no idea you had won that! By your wonderful reaction I have to say I'm so glad it was you! You really made the fun of the whole giveaway continue just a little longer. Now we will all be waiting anxiously to see what you make of it!

    I guess i have to go back and do some reading..i didn't realize I had missed so much in the blogs in just a few days.

    CONGRATS! :) Such fun! Loving it :)

  6. Thanks I am so glad you had fun reading this! I am still holding on to this and I might (might) post a picture of me wearing it but I'm not sure if I'm quite ready to brave that!

  7. Lucky you,what a beautiful prize!
    I agree, hang it from a pretty silver chain and let it shine all on its own. If you make a special beaded strand to put it on you may not be able to take it off and change the look of the piece. A chain usually allows you the option to remove a pendant from one chain and put it on to another one...or to even use a black silk cord.
    On those rare occasions when you want addition bling you can always wear a second, beaded strand along with it.
    Oh what fun you are going to have with that pretty bauble.

  8. Oh yes so much fun! I am first going to try a simple beaded chain because of the weight of the pendent. I tried a silver chain but all I have is too flimsy to use. Have some silver 15's that might just give me what I am looking for. We'll have to see.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  9. I'm glad you like it! It's so much prettier in person, isn't it? And Jennifer's blog is

  14. Thanks so much Nicole! I hope I can do it justice!
