Comment on my blog and win FREE jewelry!

One of the best parts about having a blog is that I get to communicate with my readers. But I feel like I'm doing more talking than listening these days!

As an incentive I am having a contest. Everyone who comments on ANY blog post before December 15th, 2008 gets entered in a draw to win a free necklace!

To make this work, you will have to email me at if you make a comment. This way you can still be anonymous with your comment on the blog if you want, but I need to have your email address to contact the winner! Simply email me and put "Blog Comment" in the subject!

I want to hear if you agree or disagree on my article about fair trade, what you think about handmade clasps, and really anything that pops in your head when visiting my site!


  1. Jessica,
    Your story about your volunteer project really hit home.... how fortunate we are and what we take for granted... especially close to Christmas, may we all learn from you and take time to invest in less fortunate then ourselves...thanks

  2. Hey Jessica,

    Im so impressed by the work you're doing. Your jewelry is stunning and your cause admirable. I've signed up for the email updates and that and am glad to support your cause and you work.
    Once again, It was nice to meet you at the millennium session. Best of luck with HDI.

  3. Hey Jess,
    Just wanted to thank you again for the necklace that arrived today, I know it will be the perfect gift. Also, I was looking on your blog and saw that you did a youtube video, I really enjoyed it. Keep up the creative touches to your blog.

  4. Hey Jess,
    The one thing that I didn't understand was what you meant when you said "to create a shiny finish it then gets tumbled for a few hours". What do you mean tumbled? Tumbled like laundry?

  5. First of all - thank you all so much for your feedback! I appreciate you taking the time to comment so much.

    Dan - you caught me! I did kind of glaze over that step. I have a machine, called a tumbler, and it has a small rubber barrel. Inside are a bunch of tiny, hard, metal beads. To tumble silver pieces, I toss them in the barrel with a drop of soap and a little bit of water. The barrel sits on a base that rotates it and the sloshing motion of the contents gently polishes the silver to a shiny, bright finish! It also helps to harden the silver findings.

  6. Okay so first of all WE do not want to be anonymous because we could not be prouder of our future daughter in law! She is an amazingly creative person with a heart to match! She keeps surprising us every step she takes along this journey that we all feel compelled and motivated to join with her.
    Love your future Out Laws!
