Holiday Gift Guide Day 10 - Vintage Pearl Giveaway

During the Holiday Season - and every other time of year - I am the official present buyer in our household.  And as much as I love buying things for other people, my favorite person to pick presents out for is me!

I've been thinking a lot about what I want for Christmas this year, and have been spending a lot of time at The Vintage Pearl.


The more I look around, the more I fall in love.

For those of you that aren't familiar with this site, The Vintage Pearl makes custom hand stamped jewelry.  Each individual piece of jewelry on their site is entirely handcrafted - "charms are cut, filed, hammered, hand stamped, antiqued, polished and brushed with care."  All of the letters are also hand-stamped making each piece truly unique.

And the result of all this hard work -


A beautiful hand crafted piece of jewelry.

As much as I love the faith necklace, I have finally narrowed it down to my absolute favorite piece - square names with heart.


I love the layering of the heart on the simple square, and I love the names hidden in the background.
 
But sadly today's post isn't really about what I want, but about what you want.

To Buy It - The Square names with Heart Necklace retails at 44.00 and can be purchased with this $50 Gift Certificate that we are giving away to one of you
