Thursday’s Giveaway: A Necklace from Courtney with Stella & Dot (closed)

Today we are giving away…

A “Claire” Necklace (a $49 value)

from Courtney with Stella & Dot

I just recently discovered Stella & Dot.  I love, love, love their style.  I’m not the only one.  Celebrities can’t get enough of Stella & Dot, and the jewelry has been featured in all the big magazines, including Oprah, Cosmopolitan, Redbook, Real Simple, Marie Claire, In Style, Modern Bride…and the list goes on.

Today, our local Stella & Dot consultant, Courtney Arnstein, is giving away a “Claire” necklace, pictured above.  “A sumptuous mix of materials make this necklace uber versatile. Hand-knotted and faceted stones string together any look around a feminine ribbon. Wear it long or short, dressed up or down, at home or out”.

Here’s my favorite piece:

Courtney’s favorite is the Metropolitan Mixed Chain Necklace:  “An unexpected menagerie of street chic chains accented with 4 unique vintage brooches.  This necklace will kick up your wardrobe a few notches—from daytime casual to evening couture.”

Are you looking for the perfect gift for your sister, wife, mother, or best friend?  These charm bracelets are not only stylish, but they also make a personalized gift for a loved one.  Start with a silk charm necklace and bracelet wrap…

Next, add your choice of charms.  Stella & Dot offers birthstones, initials, relationship charms (such as “sister”, “mom”, etc.), inspirational words (including “love”, “hope”, and “heal”), symbols, and more.

Stella & Dot offers unique pieces that will turn heads.  For example, take the Petra Braided Bracelet:  “Runway meets raceway. Mixed industrial metal chains are braided together with the sparkle of cubic zirconia for take-no-prisoners style”.  To see the jewelry in person, gather some girlfriends for a trunk party at your home; earn hostess rewards, too!
