Wishing on a Starfish {GIVEAWAY & DISCOUNT}

I host a ton of giveaways on this site and they usually keep me too busy to enter them.  But a few months ago, Freckled Laundry, one of my daily reads, was hosting giveaway for a necklace from Starfish Jewelry Design and I had to leave a comment.  The pieces in the feature were so unique, with a really cool vintage vibe, that I knew as soon as I saw them that I wanted one for myself.  So you can imagine how overjoyed I was when I won!  But my joy soon turned into confusion because having to choose just one necklace from the amazing selection from Starfish wasn't easy.

I was immediately drawn to the styles with key charms like the Coco.

And the Betsy.

But then I saw the pretty aged rose and grey saltwater pearl on the London, along with the cool wider link chain, and started leaning in that direction.

I really couldn't pick!  Lucky for indecisive me, Amber, who makes all of these beautiful necklaces by hand, offered to create a necklace that combined all of my favorite features.  How sweet was that, especially considering she was giving me the piece for free?

Amber ended up taking the key from the Coco, the tab with the initials on it from the Betsy and the longer 24-inch funky chain from the London.  And I love the end result!

Isn't it pretty?

The tag has my, my husband's and the girls' initials on it and I love the length of the chain because it's so different from my other "mother's" necklaces.  Maybe that's why Amber calls them "Mommy Couture."  If I only I were more adept at taking self-portraits so I could show you how cute it looks on!

In addition to the Mommy Couture necklaces, Amber just introduced a new collection, all priced $32 and under, that are guaranteed to ship within 72 hours.  

They are perfect gifts, especially for last minute shopping!  You can check them out HERE.  And if you'd like to get a Starfish piece at a steep discount, be sure to sign up for their Sample Program.

If you're looking for a truly distinctive piece of jewelry, you have to visit Starfish Jewelry Design.  Don't see exactly what you want?  Amber will work with you to create a one-of-a-kind design like she did for me.  And that's why Starfish is an AFOMFT HOLIDAY GIFT PICK.

And guess what?  Amber has generously offered to give away any necklace in her shop to one lucky AFOMFT reader!  That's right, there are no restriction on which one you can choose so with pieces that run up to $96, that's a mighty fine prize.  To enter, visit Starfish Jewelry Design and post a comment here telling me what you'll choose if you win (this is mandatory).  For additional entries:
