My Mistake is Your Opportunity (Giveaway)

Date Wed, April 27 2011

Let me tell you a story. Once upon a time a young woman took a trip with her roommate and, by chance, they wound up at some antique stores and, also by chance, the young woman happened to stopped at the shelves that held jewelry. She looked for a few minutes, not noticing anything she liked and she was about to walk away when a necklace called to her. The pendant, oval in shape with bubbled glass surrounded by a delicate silver frame, was super unique. Depending on the angle, the light reflecting green or purple or purple. The young woman scooped up the necklace and purchased it.

She wore it frequently. It accented every blouse. Then, one day, she took it off and the pendant slipped from the chain. She set them both in their usual place: the bathroom counter. She didn’t put the pendant back on the chain. When she would visit the bathroom, she saw both pieces until one day, she didn’t. How this happened, she did not know. She searched the bathroom, the bedroom, the laundry basket and the washer to no avail. She decided the cats must have knocked it down the drain.

So she set off on a mission to replace her chain so she could wear her beloved necklace. She bought a fine chain and–lo and behold–it didn’t fit. What was she to do?

Simple, she will give the chain away to one of you!

You can win this triple chain necklace!

You can win this triple chain necklace!

And that is why my mistake is your opportunity. Instead of returning it, I have decided to give this chain–originally from Serenity Crystals–to one of my lucky visitors. But this is no ordinary chain. This is a triple chain that drapes around your neck in a unique fashion. The triple chains measure 16″ so it may not hit your collar bone and you can extend an additional 3″ with a thicker chain that is attached to the very end.

The chain is silver in color because of its rhodium plating and this plating withstands wear and tear for long lasting color. The three chains are delicate enough that you can hang your favorite pendant on this necklace (as long as the ring on your pendant isn’t ridiculously small like this) but, honestly, the chains themselves are interesting enough that you don’t need to add a pendant.

I’ll keep this giveaway short and sweet. It will end next Wednesday May 4th. To enter, leave one comment each for each of these entry types:

  • Tell me how you’d wear this chain – Mandatory
  • A comment letting me know if you follow me on Twitter – @anaesthetic
  • A link to a blog post about this giveaway (must include a link to the direct post)
  • A link to a Twitter post about this giveaway (once per day) such as: Win a triple chain necklace from @anaesthetic. Visit Reviews by Cole to enter the #giveaway: Ends 5/4

P.S. If you’re wondering, I have since found a chain to use with my pendant and I will not let the cats get at it.

    Hi! I would wear this necklace with the birthstone charm I got from my husband and daughter. Thanks for the chance!

    I’d wear it many different ways I’d wear it with many different pendants as well as wearing it on it’s own!

    I have a variety of pendants and am always on the lookout for a new chain to show them off (or wear on its own)!

    In fact, were I to win the necklace, I might celebrate by ordering a pendant made by my friend Simone Richmond ( I love her reticulated silver pendants.

    I’d wear it just as is…I love plainer jewelry like this!

    I have lots of charms and beads that I would like to add to this chain to create unique necklace

  9. Michele P. May 2 2011 @ 8:45 pm

    I would wear it plain, because it really goes with everything. For a casual look, jeans and a sweater or nice Vneck tee, for dress up, with a nice low cut dress… either way it would look fabulous.
