GIVEAWAY! Spóra: Where Nature Meets Sophistication


I'm VERY excited to announce that I have another giveaway for you readers out there! The lovely owner of Spóra jewelry is giving one lucky reader one of her amazing key rings! Think class, sophistication, with a twist of nature.

Here's a little bit about the owner Patricia:

"I grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and I have always had a fascination with seeds. During my experimentation with jewelry design, I realized that besides being unusual and beautiful, necklaces made with seeds are also meaningful, for seeds are a symbol for birth, rebirth, and renewal. This is an important connection to make now that our environment is threatened.


I combine the seeds with more "sophisticated" and expensive material like semi-precious stones, pearls, and silver --- this  creates an interesting perspective on the idea of preciousness: it is the seeds that make spóra’s necklaces precious. 


I go to Brazil at least once a year to visit my family and to buy seeds; all my jewelry is handmade by me. It is nice to know that picking seeds is a source of income for many natives in the amazon rainforest.  I am glad I can "show off" a little bit of Brazil in my designs."


So how do you enter to get your piece of this beautiful jewelry line?

1. Like Spóra's facebook page.
2. Go to Patricia's Etsy page and pick one of the three key rings out.
3. Leave a comment here confirming the like and telling me which key ring you liked the best!

That's it! Oh, please remember to leave a comment with a form of contact, ie. email or twitter or blogger id or something.

And I'm sorry to say that this giveaway is limited to the US, Canada, and Europe. Bummer but it happens as the world is a very large place with kind of crappy mail service.

This contest ends May 25th at 11:59pm EST and the winner will be announced the morning of the 26th or 27th.
