fildee: a giveaway

3.16.2012

I'm sure I'm not the only one with a penchant for lovely old brass jewelry. I love wearing jewelry from long ago, whether it be a strand of pearls or a delicate diamond resting on a chain, coppery from age. When Kimberly contacted me about collaborating together on a giveaway, my day was made. Not only is she super sweet, but her shop, Fildee, is stunning. It's filled with minimalist, modern pieces, perfect for everyday or a night out on the town.


Kimberly is giving away the most lovely necklace. A sweet locket dangling from a golden chain, this piece of jewelry would be just right for a picnic in the park--or perhaps with a little black dress for a fancy night out. I'm smitten.

Want to win? Just leave a comment below telling me about your favorite piece of jewelry.

For extra entries (please leave a separate comment for each):

+ follow pastor's girl's ponderings
+ follow Kimberly's blog, amusing
+ tweet about the giveaway (be sure to include @pastorsgirl and a link to this post)

Giveaway ends on Tuesday, March 20th at 9:59pm CST.

Good luck!

  147. My favorite piece of jewlery is a bracelet that is made out of my great great grandfathers pocketclock chain. It is made of white and yellow gold and is just so beautiful. Me and my sister have matching ones and adore them. Since the chain is over 100 years old the detail in the gold is breath taking. It uses and old technique called hammering were you grave a small tiny point and make little dots in the gold giving it a very interesting appearence. I love that necklace and I am going to get some of her stuff for my cousons b-day.

    ReplyDelete
  148. My favorite piece of jewelry is either my crucifix necklace that's actual silver and gold, or a necklace with a whimsy blue owl on a long-ish chain. I love them both because they both really reflect my personality!

  157. This is beautiful! My favourite piece of jewellry was a silver heart locket given to me by my grandparents which I've worn more or less every day for several years now. But the clasp was loose and it fell off at school last week--lost for good, I fear. Which I am sad about, but fildee looks like it could have a good replacement.

    My favorite piece of jewelry? Oh, it would have to be...no...well, maybe it is...? No. Well, I honestly cannot choose a piece of accessory that ranks number one, but right now I'm smitten with long unique necklaces. Birdcages, owls, Indian beads, you name. I wish my cash flow allowed for more jewelry sprees.
