FREE hand-crafted jewelry for TWO lucky winners!

Have I got a treat for you! I’ve a small window of ‘free’ time between my last blog event and my sizzlin’ heroes of Scotland, Ireland, England & Wales Blog Event. Guess what’s up for grabs right now? Jewelry! Yep, you heard me correctly. I’d like to say I thought long and hard, “what would my readers and followers enjoy in the intermission?” but it wasn’t hard at all. Why? I happen to have a good friend who designs and sells jewelry that makes all women look beyond beautiful!

Without further adieu I’d like to introduce the CEO of Designs by Dawn Marie….none other than Dawn Marie herself.

From her lips to my blog…

I was born and raised in a small town in Wisconsin. Grew up surrounded by a big family. Everything I create comes from my heart. I love LOVE. Family is still the most important thing to me today. My favorite color is purple. I have a MONSTER sweet tooth. I create very different styles of jewelry - beaded like the necklaces you can purchase, wire wrapped, and wire crocheted. I've been making jewelry for almost 2 years and was actually inspired by my mother-in-law (to be)... she insisted I had talent when I had no idea what I wanted to do with the next chapter of my life. I am engaged to a wonderful man and we have two furry kids. (Two beautiful dogs!) I also love to golf, garden and spend as much time as possible with family.”

Doesn’t Dawn Marie sound fabulous? She LOVES love! Tell me you don’t feel the same? Her jewelry is super. I bought a piece a while back and well…loved it so much I just knew I had to share her with you!

If you’re anything like me, you like to attract the man in your life─or just men in general! Well, the necklace I bought from Dawn did that. Made my husband’s head turn twice! I’m such a fan of her work I’d like to offer a giveaway. Now this is for the gal like me who skipped on the belly ring, the back tattoo, and is more comfy in conservative clothing…but SO not afraid to think sexy and show a little ankle or more *winks*……

I’m ready to give away Dawn Marie’s Teal Blue Anklet Ankle bracelet. Wait a second! Just got the latest from Dawn, she wants to add to the pot. A dichroic heart necklace has been added to the mix! How fantastic is that?


So now I sit here, a teal blue anklet in one hand, a heart necklace in the other. What is a girl to do? I say….I want two winners!

Is there a catch? Of course. Wait…stop! Heard from Dawn again. No matter if you win or lose this give-away she'd like to offer my followers and readers one more thing. (I’m humbled by this, she’s too cool) if you order something from her before July 5th enter the coupon code SKYSPROMO and get %10 off all of her jewelry! I know Dawn puts her heart and soul into everything she makes and will hand craft whatever you like so I’m flattered she’s willing to do this for my crowd and any of her followers as well.

Okay, back to business. Normally I’m fine with a random comment because I support all funds. In this case I’m supporting only half. And though Dawn is fine with whatever I do I want you to answer one thing in a comment for a chance to win. Visit Dawn’s website, click on testimonials (can’t miss it-at top) and list any one of the raved about pieces of jewelry in a comment! Pretty easy, eh?

Thanks so much for swinging in. Both Dawn and I appreciate it. I’ll give Dawn the floor for the week for comments but I’m bound to stick my head in here and there! Remember, all comments are moderated so don’t be alarmed if you don’t see yours right away. Contest ends Friday, July 2nd 12 PM EST.

Have a second? Join Dawn and learn more at her ~Website ~ Blog ~ Twitter ~ Facebook ~Myspace

Best Always,
~Sky

Wow! Dawn you are very, very talented! Your jewelry is beautiful! Now Dawn said we had to pick our favorite off of your website- well I can't really pick one-they're all amazing, but I am partial to the wired Aqua Crystal necklace and the black onyx. They really are gorgeous!!! My mom also makes jewelry and now she has started making lanyards for people to wear with their ID, badges for work- just a thought! :O) I also have a friend who collects class from the Chesapeake bay and makes jewelry out of them as well- here link is on my blog if you should want to take a peek!!

Anyway, best of luck with your designs they truly are one of a king!!!

Andrea :O) And if I were to win one, I wouldn't be upset!!!

What beautiful pieces. What a great artist. Here is the link to the testimony I read...http://www.designsbydawnmarie.com/so-happy-with-this-purchase/

The customer actually said the piece made her skin look more radiant. Who doesn't want more radiant skin-must be a magical necklace!

Maeve said...

My favorite was the amethyst kiss heart pendant. Amethyst is my birthstone and purple is my favorite color. I don't blame them for raving over that lovely piece. Dawn is a true artist!

Gerri Bowen said...

Beautiful work, Dawn! I liked it all, but in the testimonials, I liked the Amethyst Kiss heart Pendent, IF, I had to pick only one.

Brandlwyne said...

I really like the Jewelry for Bridesmaids - the recipient said she felt like she was part of a royal procession - that must have been an amazing feeling! Also, I love the light, glimmering shades in that set.

Hi Dawn I live in WI. Your jewerly is beautiful. Thank you for the cnace to win.

I’m so happy with this purchase. Just got it in the mail and felt like I’d known Dawn Marie for years. She puts a lot of thought into the packaging alone! As to the necklace I bought─ Amethyst Kiss, Heart Pendant─ it’s absolutely gorgeous. Pale turquoise jewels against deep, rich lavender. The necklace makes my skin appear radiant, luminescent almost. Scotch-Irish skin here─this necklace somehow made me look tan! The workmanship is suburb. Definitely a piece of jewelry worth raving about.
Thanks so much, Dawn Marie.

Wow, Sky your readers are amazing! I feel so much love from your friends and followers. Each of you has really touched my heart with your comments. Just the fact you took the time to visit my new website and look around really means alot to me.

But hearing your comments about my jewelry designs is really precious. I feel so blessed and humbled right now!

I wish we could choose seventy-hundred-billion winners (as my niece would say) because all of your comments are super special to me.

Dawn truly has a gift in making jewely. I loved the rave she got on her beaded wrap bracelet (the woman got a free pair of errings as a surprise-yikes!) and I love the bridemaid's jewelry. This is my choice from the testimonial page.

Off Dawn's site the piece I adore is the long dangley black onx(spelling?) necklace - it's just stunning.
