Jewelry Giveaway

Hmmm…this could be fun. This weekend my brilliant friends gave me the idea
to give away some jewelry on my blog. Sounds fun, why not! Should I have
used a question mark there? Nahhh….I write by my own rules in case you
can’t tell. My poor high school English teachers, my mom and my grandma

I am giving away a pair of earrings to one of my blog followers. I just made these after returning from the gem show. These are texturized, sterling silver drops that dangle from dainty sterling chain. Handmade french ear wires. These are really fun. Can dress up or down any outfit.

Eeks, blurry.

How to enter:
I should clarify…you don’t have to do all of these but each time you post it is another entry for you.:)

1. Leave a comment on here about what your favorite kind of bling is and why
(earrings, necklace, bracelet, ring, etc).

2. Spread the word about Design Eat Play. Tweet and/or post to Facebook about the contest then come back and leave a comment letting me know you did. (Want to make sure you get your entry!)

I will have my husband pick one comment at random to win. Contest closes
this Sunday at 6pm. Winners will be announced later that evening. Happy
bling blinging and good luck!

I hope to do many more of these so stay tuned!

To see all of my jewelry visit my etsy store I will be adding LOTS of fun stuff soon.

Erin - Earrings are my favorite. I error on the side of being too safe with my style, but I love unique, stand-out earrings!

Linda Lillard - I am an earrings person – they are the only jewelry I wear actually. When I'm on the computer all day I tend to take bracelets and rings off and then lose them :) Guess there are always necklaces too, but I can never get them to look quite right on me. Earrings can always jazz up an outfit.

Jaime Stoltz - Definitely an earring person, but lately I've also been in to big, chunky rings! Beautiful earrings Crissie!

Anie - LOVE the earrings Crissie! You have such FABULOUS taste!! Me on the other hand- I need SO much help! I'm one of those people that LOVE looking at all the accessories on others and wish I could pull it off as good as they do. Earrings are the one thing I love wearing and feel totally comfortable doing so. I feel like they are the easiest to match with an outfit and/ or hairstyle. Necklaces come in second, but I definitely struggle with knowing what looks best on me. Thanks for being an inspiration! :)

Anonymous - I am an every kind of jewelry person… as long as it is Izzy P! Seriously, I don't think I wear anything these days that isn't made by Cristen Elizabeth Hardy McDowell. You really are the bes-est!

OK. Off to facebook away!

Katie - Bling bling please! I love love love your stuff, I would like to marry it, is that wrong? I try not to leave the house without a twinkle of IzzyP on these days. Love your earrings and necklaces and wondering if I should start expanding into bracelets? Holla!

Anonymous - I love the creativity from IzzyP, because I lack so much of it. I always recieve many complimants when sporting my IzzyP jewels. I would have to say necklaces are probably my favorite standby, but all my IzzyP earrings are my new fav-o-rite accessory. Ps found an oldie but goodie from IzzyP this last weekend. Love it all. Thanks Crissie- you're amazing.

Melanie - Ooh, these are lovely! I’m usually never seen without a pair of earrings .. they’re my daily must. Thanks for the opportunity! :)

Dana - I love baubles of so many kinds, but am probably a little conservative about them. For example, I probably wore the same silver hoop earrings for… oh, that's embarrassing. Am trying to get a little bolder… :)

Dana - also – done tweeted! :)

Emily - I love necklaces- I like to use them to dress up a simple shirt. I don't wear earrings with the big, flashy necklaces because then it's too much and I look crazy. But when I'm not wearing a necklace, I like earrings, but I don't have any because I spend all my money on necklaces. These would be perfect! Thanks for the chance!

Camille Henry - Hi Crissie! Wow…Love your jewelry! I love earrings and necklaces. Earrings are probably my favorite. Also, your photography skills are fabulous! You're amazing!

Katie Walker - Crissie, these earrings are so cute! I love them! My favorite accessory lately has been necklaces, but I've quickly realized that I need to step things up in the earring department.

Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 10:58 am

Katie Walker - I just spread the word on my Facebook fan page. Because I posted it on the fan page, it will show up in each of my fan's News Feed (almost 300 fans).

Check here to see!

Hope that helps!

Monya R. - I like rings because my 9 month old son can't rip them out of my ears or strangle me with them :) Will post to fb too!

Monya R. - Just posted to fb too :)

teena0821 - I love bracelets! I feel that are fun and flirty. To me it makes the wrist have a neat sex appeal. I also feel it can make an outfit! I can't lie I do love all styles and types of jewelry! What girl doesn't!

JAMN2003 - Wow, your blog/website is awesome! I just started a blog while my hubby's deployed and mine is pale in comparison. It's a miracle if I even get to my a couple times/week, LOL!

I don't leave my house w/o my beloved wedding ring as it's my favorite pc of jewelry. I also LOVE all jewelry, and must confess that I'm kinda a jewelry hoarder! :) I love necklaces and anklet a lot and love showing off my quirky off-beat personality with my jewelry.

They say diamonds are a girls best friend, but I LOVE the fake stuff. You know why, it's fun, flirty, cheaper and you don't have to stress if one of your kids flushes it or it gets lost at the beach!

I also LOVE Etsy and need to shop there more often. Thanks for offering this cool and fun contest as what girl doesn't like to be in the run for some new jewelry! It's like an instant makeover, new bling is SO flashy and fun, especially if it's FREE!

Take care and God bless you! <><

Jessie - My favorite bling would have to be earrings. I love them, and wear them all the time. Though, my wedding ring is definitely my favorite piece of jewelry, I like wearing earrings more!

Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 1:47 pm

Jessie - I tweeted this, also!

Anonymous - I just found your blog and I love those earings. My favorite bling is a bracelet. I love how you can wear many at a time and can mix expensive ones with costume and they look great.
