Giveaway alert! Gorgeous goods from Blend Creations
Posted by andrea tomkins in: Giveaways and product reviews
I hardly know where to begin.
I think I have no choice but to begin at the beginning.
A few days ago I was contacted by Vivian Cheng of Blend Creations. Here’s a snippet of her email to me:
My husband and I run Blend Creations, an online jewelry store from our studio here in Ottawa. Everything we sell is designed by us, machined here in town, with inlays cut and set by one of us. We’re also members of 1% for the Planet which means that 1% of our gross sales goes to benefit an environmental non-profit group — last year we donated our 1% to Ottawa Riverkeeper.
Here’s a few items I thought you might want to have a look at:
Our torus necklaces - they’re simple and funky and one of our newest designs.
Our Metal for Monsters pendants - we collaborated with 9 different artists who provided some fun monster illustrations. $16 from the sale of each pendant goes to benefit UNICEF. The story of how we came up with the line is here.
Our engraved wood necklaces - these are my personal favourites and when I wear something of ours, it’s usually one of these.
Our mother of pearl pendants and necklaces - these are a close second favourite since they’re a ‘modern classic’ that can be worn with just about anything (t-shirt and jeans or little black evening dress).
After I clicked through her entire storefront I fell off my chair. That is how much I love these designs.
Vivian - what a peach (here she is!) - has promised to give me this lovely lovely engraved wood necklace. Eek! Isn’t it gorgeous? More importantly however, she is giving a little something to one of you too.
… a $100 CDN gift certificate to spend at Blend Creations.
The fine print (as usual):
All good? Any questions? Have you picked yourself up off the floor yet? Over to you!
