Blame it on my impending motherhood and a greater-than-usual sense that I need to be tapping into my inner Earth Mother and gathering bits of wisdom from the universe, but lately I’ve been looking for little signs of strength everywhere. When a new Reading My Tea Leaves sponsor, Of A Kind, approached me about hosting a May giveaway, I knew I wanted to share with my readers a talisman of sorts.
A pyramidal lapis pendant the color of the night sky seemed just about perfect.
Of course, if you’re not digging the talisman angle, just think of it as a rad little necklace that you can flaunt equally well with a plain white tee or your slinkiest, silkiest dress that needs a fierce pint-sized accessory.
In either case, to one lucky reader, we’re giving away an Elizabeth Knight Lapis Spirit Pendant. One of just 40 that were made, I like to think of the lucky winner as entering into a kind of secret society of lapis-wearing beauties.
For one of you sweet readers, number 24 of 40 pendants made.
Handmade in Brooklyn, the necklace is made from a pyramid-shaped blue lapis stone in 14-karat-gold-plated brass setting on a 14-karat-gold-plated brass chain. The pendant measures ½ inch by ½ inch and the chain is 24 inches long. To enter the giveaway, subscribe to the Of a Kind Newsletter through this unique link (one of my favorite weekly reads), and leave a comment below, complete with your contact information and a note about how you’ve been harnessing a little extra strength these days.
The giveaway will close at 5:00 pm EST on Friday, May 16 and a randomly selected winner will be announced on Monday. Open to US readers, only. UPDATE: Thanks for entering! The giveaway is now closed. The winner is Lauren C.!
Bonne chance, mes amis.
