tuesday giveaway! eastern holiday necklace by elephantine

“clasp my love around your neck,
wear my heart on your finger.”
– grey livingston
hooray for giveaway day!
i am lucky enough to have another wonderful giveaway item. it makes me happy to delight my favorite readers and give some love to my favorite artists that you may or may not know and love πŸ™‚
in true silver lining form, this week’s prize was inspired by my love for delicate, elegant, sentimental jewelry. “modern heirlooms”, as i like to call them. and the designs from elephantine are one of the most exquisite modern heirlooms i have seen.
rachel, the seattle based jewelry designer behind the elephantine brand, charmed me instantly with her inspiring blog {she has a chatty cat named rufus and an anxious german shepard named bodhi!}. and once i immersed myself in her stunning collection of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings and jewelry box {the flying elephant!} – i was head over heels.

so, to celebrate my love for elephantine, this week’s giveaway is my favorite piece from the collection – the eastern holiday necklace.

here is elephantine’s description and inspiration of this piece:


“on this necklace, a gorgeous thai bead is strung onto a delicate sterling silver chain. having an appearance of folded paper, this lightweight embellishment makes for a simple yet stunning necklace. the chain is finished with tiny white beads by the clasp.”

gorgeous!

and, rachel also mentioned she can custom the necklace length for the winner…thank you, rachel!

so without further ado…..
