Love Touch Pendant Giveaway

If you have been a reader for a while you have already read at least 1 post from me about the beautiful fingerprint jewelry created by Tina Steinberg. I received a gorgeous Round Up Your Love pendant from Lily and her Daddy for Christmas 2007.

For Christmas I received a little packet of clay along with instructions and a package to mail everything back.Together we all sat down to make a mold of Lily's fingerprint, which was a very easy process after a little practice with some playdough. We packed it all up, dropped it in the mail, and two weeks later I received a beautiful silver pendant with Lily's tiny fingerprint preserved forever. You can read about my initial impression and see more photos in my first post about it it here.

Three years of constant wear later, it was still beautiful and in perfect shape. I will be the first to admit I am not easy on jewelry. I never took it off, I showered, slept, worked out and even sometimes swam with it on. You would never have known by looking at it. A little silver polish every month or so kept it looking brand new. I received countless compliments and questions about it and was always happy to direct people to Tina knowing they would be as thrilled as I was.

Earlier this summer I lost my pendant. My chain broke while I was out (not a chain from Tina, one that I had before getting the pendant) and I put it into my purse until I could get home. Somehow it must have fallen out along the way and I am heartbroken that it is gone. Lily used to love to put her finger into the print to see how much she had grown. I used to love to touch it whenever she wasn't with me, feeling a little closer to her whenever I missed her.

I had already planned on purchasing another Round Up Your Love pendant for Sunflower, but now I haven't decided yet whether to replace Lily's with another single and get a new one for Sunflower or to get one double pendant with both fingerprints now that I have lost the first one. Tina has so many more beautiful designs now it is even harder to decide than during my initial search. Besides my favorite Love Touch Collection she also has gorgeous lockets that you can fill with tiny fingerprints, names or tiny treasures and a Spirit Collection that gives "sheer empowerment and a dose of good juju on a chain".

Giveaway

Tina Steinberg has graciously offered to give one reader their own Love Drop Pendant (valued at $120). The winner will receive a kit from Tina to create your own fingerprint mold which will be used to create the sterling silver pendant. This pendant is the size of the fingerprint plus 2mm around and 4-6mm above the print. It includes a 1 word inscription on back and a jump ring, but does not include a chain.



To enter the giveaway you must visit Tina's website then come back and tell me what your favorite item is other than the Love Drop or Round Up your Love pendants.

You may earn one additional entry by "liking" Tina's Facebook page and by following my blog. Post an additional comment letting me know that you did both.
The winner will be drawn on Monday, August 16th.

This giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents.

Oh it's my birthday this week and this would be the perfect birthday present ;)

I am following your blog!

Jumpin J's Mom said...

Found a bunch of stuff on Tina's website that I love but I think my favorite is the peas in a pod necklace, it's right up my alley!

Jayme said...

Although my favorite really is the Love Touch Pendant (the little love charmer plus one), I also love the Joan of Arc pendant. It's my ultimate favorite quote - I've even thought about having it tattooed on me!

Jah said...

I've been looking for something exactly like this, I didn't think it existed!
I like the monogram pendants on Tina's website!

The Rippberger Family said...

These are awesome- great quality- exactly what I have been looking for. The Love Touch Pendant is perfect- so personalized!!! Would love to win this!

LeAnn said...

The circle of love locket in the luscious locket collection is beautiful!!

Ashley said...

Oh wow! I had no idea these existed, now I believe it is a necessity for my daughter's 1st birthday coming up in September (uncanny timing with the giveaway!).

I cried when I read about the of yours, I know that must be devastating.

I went to Tina's site and honest to goodness I would pick out the teardrop one you have a picture of above, it is stunning! But I would probably order the one with the chain after hearing about your luck with your own chain.

(Just so you know I went to her site) I also like the 'Love Locker' Heart Locket.

Praying we are picked with the random number generator... :)

A wonderful website for very special gifts. I love the "love touch bracelet" (comes with one little charmer.) A perfect way for a grandmother to wear her own little loved ones. Wonder if the names could be done in braille on a special order? I have a friend who would really appreciate that.

Lori T. said...

I am already a fan of Tina's on fb.

I actually love all of her collection, so it would be hard to chose just one item!

I would love this love touch pendant because my husband and I are temporarily living apart due to his work transfer and at times its too much to bear... It would be awesome to get him one made like the dog tag of my print and for me to have a print of his on the round collection, so when we are both really down we could still be close.

so sorry to hear you lost your pendant.

Lori
