Melissa Loves Giveaway


I wrote about my necklace a few weeks ago, but I neglected to tell you that in the process of finishing the design, the original necklace was lost in the mail. Melissa was so kind and generous to make and send another necklace to me, even though the first one was floating around in USPS purgatory.

Well, I’m happy to say that weeks later, the original necklace showed up in my mailbox! It is sitting on my dresser, and thanks to (again, the kind and generous and mega-talented) Melissa, she’s totally down with giving it to one of you. My only request is that you pop on over to the Melissa Loves shop and check out her beautiful handmade jewelry. I’m in awe of everything she creates, but I’m so drawn to this piece.

Enter below and I’ll announce the winner next week. I like to think the necklace is going to end up in the hands of someone who really needs it, and that makes me smile.

    How cool is that? The lost, and now found, necklace fits right into th theme of your blog lately… that meaning is in how we choose to see all of these seemingly insignificant events. I would love the Dont Give Up, well traveled necklace and would treasure ig; but I will be excited for whoever gets it knowing it will fall into the right hands.

    So many beautiful pieces! I was immediately drawn to CLOSE, because the initials shown are E and T, which is the country code for Ethiopia…where we’re adopting from! I also love the bracelet FRIENDSHIP, especially if it was in sterling silver to match my wedding ring. I have three sisters, and we are all friends. I also have some really strong and long-lasting friendships with girls that are like sisters. They are the best cheerleaders, kindest critics, and sweetest gifts God has given me.

  • Kristi

    May 28, 2014 at 8:28 am

    The Moon & Stars is calling to me! Beautiful. The Karma ring is also awesome. However the Don’t Give Up necklace you posted is so peaceful. It’s a great reminder to anyone. For me, it would be a reminder to not give up with Crohn’s Disease and to keep strong for my family.

  • beckie

    May 28, 2014 at 8:31 am

    Loved your original post about this necklace and would love to wear it. Sometimes it nice to wear a reminder to help get through a tough time. I do it sometimes and it helps affirm what I know I can do in those tough moments. I also lived the strength ring on Melissa’s site. Really beautiful stuff!

    It was hard to pick one, but I think I’d choose the Moon Studs bc I could wear them every day.

    So many gorgeous pieces, but I especially love the “Strength” ring, at a time when I really need strength!

    Hi, this necklace would mean so much to me. Even without it, it reminds me I should carry
    something that reminds me to never give up or start a daily affirmation wall. I’m a dv survivor and single mother of two. Never give up

    I love the Waves necklace, because the water is where I belong, every day of my life, if possible.

    I live this necklace and could definitely use some positive energy. My husband has been sick for 3 and half years and bedridden for 7 months. We have seen so many doctors and tried so many medications, all to no avail. We are now trying a more holistic approach (which is why I cannot wait for your video about Mala Beads!)

    This necklace is most definitely my favourite piece! It could not be more representative of everyone’s individual struggles.

    I think the necklace in the giveaway IS my favorite piece! But the Renewal Ring is a favorite, too.

    I think the “Don’t Give Up” necklace is my favourite (very appropriate for me right now!), but I also really love “Reminder II” and “Strength.” “Renewal” is also beautiful, I can see why you like it :-) I have been really enjoying your Mindful Monday posts, they are really resonating with what is going on for me right now, it’s nice to know I am not the only one looking into this kind of thing. Please keep them coming and thank you for sharing your story!

    I adore your necklace and the inspiration behind it. I have three daughters (my corners) and am trying to balance my mind/body/spirit connection on the daily (my arrows).

    It’s so hard to choose, but I think my favourite pieces (can’t choose just one!) are the “Don’t Give Up” and ” Moon Glow” necklaces.

  • Sandra

    Ooo, I like that Renewal bracelet/bangle as well.

    Don’t Give Up and Let It Go speak volumes to mantras I’m embracing at this place in my life. Being a visual person, Melissa’s pieces are gorgeous physical reminders of this. Thank you for sharing your journey in this space. It’s been helpful to come here and connect to posts on spirituality as that is a piece of my life that is desperately wanting to grow and develop.

    All her pieces are very deep. Can jewelry be deep? Hard to articulate, but they have a very ethereal otherworldliness to them. Her Stars necklace is simply beautiful.
