"hope" necklace

This is officially my favorite necklace I have ever owned. I received it to review from Jessica Maia Designs.
I hardly ever wear necklaces, just because I can't find ones I love very often... or they are the wrong length to go with my necklines. This one is a 16" chain, so it's short enough to go with almost anything I wear.

People have been talking about their "one word" for 2010. Well, hope is mine. It's actually my middle name, and it's something I want to remember to always have. Because of my resolve to remember this word, I asked Jessica to custom-make me a necklace with the word stamped on it.


Hand-stamped sterling silver necklaces are my new obsession. I want like ten of them.

I wore this on New Year's, and I have worn almost every day since. I have gotten lots of compliments on it...even from my brother! I love how it's kinda reminiscent of dog tags... (military, not for canines). Those are something I have always loved but aren't super-feminine, you know? : )

And it came in this way-too-cute little box. : ) Adorable packaging makes me happy in a big way.

Do you love it as much as I do? Well... on Monday my giveaway will be starting up, and this is one of the items that you can win!

    1. sắc mặt cực kỳ âm trầm.

      - Lão già này rốt cuộc đang suy nghĩ cái gì. Lúc này hết sức nguy ngập, chi bằng bỏ Chu Tước Tinh rời đi xa, chờ sau này có sức phản kháng lại quay trở về. Cứ giằng co như bây giờ, thời gian quá dài, lòng người chắc chắn sẽ loạn.

      Hắn trầm mặc ít lâu rồi hừ lạnh một tiếng, ánh mắt chớp động, lẩm bẩm:

      - Không biết Tằng Ngưu giờ này đang ở nơi nào. Người này đã đả thương ta, nếu ta gặp được nhất định sẽ nuốt lấy ý cảnh của hắn. Thập Ức Tôn Hồn Phiên tuy hùng mạnh nhưng lão già này đã cho ta một pháp dong tam mu lậu cho thuê nhà trọ cho thuê nhà trọ nhạc sàn cực mạnh tư vấn pháp luật qua điện thoại công ty luật ở hà nội số điện thoại tư vấn pháp luật dịch vụ thành lập doanh nghiệpbảo, nhìn vào khả năng lựa chọn của lão già này thì pháp bảo ấy hẳn là uy lực rất lớn. Có vật ấy, đối phó với Thập Ức Tôn Hồn Phiên ta nhất định sẽ nắm chắc phần thắng.

      Tuy nhiên không đến vạn bất đắc dĩ ta cũng không muốn sử dụng pháp bảo do lão đưa. Lão thất phu này vẫn ẩn giấu ý đồ sâu xa, nhưng hắn lại không biết ta đã sớm nhìn ra ý thái độ của hắn đối với ta có chút kỳ lạ.

  2. Love love love it! I know what you mean about the military dog tags, I love them so much, but they aren't quite as feminine as one would like them to be. Such a pretty necklace and the packaging is so cute!

Celebrated designer homes divulge their have array in designer catier pendents and go on modifying and even upgrading mens jackets all just about every months. High profile designer weeks are witness to cheap gucci handbags models trekking down that ramp to push these plastic bags. Celebrities show the plastic chanel classic bag at really vital events only to mean their tendency. The stylish hermes bag outlet are expensive and even over and above that reach belonging to the middle model.
