Erin McDermott Jewelry GIVEAWAY

Well readers, I am movin' on up in the blogging world and announcing my very first Giveaway.  Thanks to a gracious invitation from the talented Erin McDermott, one lucky reader will win a pair of these Christy Earrings



As a fellow school mate of Erin's, I have been admiring her work for ages.  Erin graduated high school a few years ahead of me but her mother, being my French teacher, kept me informed on all of Erin's accomplishments post-grad.  In college, Erin studied jewelry design at NYC's illustrious Fashion Institute of Technology where she perfected her craft.  She is now a successful entrepreneur in Charlotte and her elegant creations have quickly become a favorite of brides and fashionistas alike.  In fact, she was even featured in this month's issue of Real Simple!


Unlike most jewelry, Erin's pieces are extremely versatile.  I wore Erin's Whitney Earrings to a black tie wedding one week, then on a casual dinner date the next.  Erin's impeccable taste and fine-tuned craftsmanship make her pieces a hit with women everywhere.  


Whether you're a bride-to-be or just a lover of stylish accessories, Erin has something for everyone.  To win a pair of these fabulous earrings, browse her site and choose your favorite piece of jewelry.  Then, leave a comment below this post explaining which piece you love and why.  Everyone who leaves a comment will be automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be randomly selected next week.  Happy hunting and good luck!


Contest ends Wednesday, June 29th at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time.

  15. I absolutely adore all of Erin's jewelry and love the fact I can support someone local in my area. If I had to pick, I would have to say the Jane-Garnet white pearl earrings are my absolute favorite. They scream simple elegance. They can be dressed up for a formal wedding, worn with a suit to the office, or simply jazz up a t-shirt and jeans for a night out on the town.

  30. Great giveaway! I picked the "Whitney" earrings for my bridesmaids last fall, and would totally get the "Amelie" earrings for my new mother-in-law, who loves turquoise. (I'd get them for myself, as well, but haven't been able to wear earrings since I was ten thanks to a childhood accident with my little sister...)

  34. The Black Onyx & Champagne Earrings are just sexy. Like a red lipstick, I can imagine feeling unstoppable wearing them. Erin's jewelry is amazing!

  35. I love the Horseshoe necklace, as it reminds me of what a wonderful blessing and good luck the horse I rescued from going to slaughter is for me. He is truly a soul mate and such a wonder, that the horseshoe embodies his best qualities and a reminder of how wonderful he is and alive and well within the refined elegance of a gorgeous necklace.

  36. I tried to post this before so forgive me if it's a duplicate! I LOVE the hammered silver disc earrings. Most of my wardrobe is so casual that I always feel I can't "pull off" much. But these are perfect with everything I own plus a great excuse to go shopping!! Erin & Concetta --- so proud of both of you guys!
