silver starburst necklace by kahili creations

“stay the course, light a star,
change the world where’er you are.”
– richard le gallienne



it’s a new year….and time for a new giveaway!

as an ambitious girl who’s always on-the-go, a little necklace can go a long way when paired with cozy cashmere cardigans, supersoft charcoal heather tees and skinny black pants {my uniform – i need to start mixing it up more!}.

so when my eyes fell upon this darling silver starburst necklace by kahili creations, i was hooked. from the chilly winter season to the sizzling beach days of summer, this beauty could accompany almost all of my outfits – how could i resist?

and when marcia, the marvelous designer behind kahili creations, graciously offered this very same necklace as the prize for this week’s giveaway, i was beaming from ear to ear. thank you maria!!!

so, friends, this is your chance! wouldn’t it be fun to start the year off with a bright and shiny new necklace? try your luck!

  152. Yay! What a great giveaway. I am now following your blog and your Facebook site. I believe the “Ornate Silver Disc and Tourmaline Necklace” is my favorite out of many lovely things on the Kahili Creations etsy site. Her shop is now an Etsy favorite of mine. Thanks!Cari
