DIY: Pendant Necklace + Swarovski Crystal Pendant Giveaway

It always happens that while you’re out shopping for others, you always end up coming home with a few things for yourself. One for you… one,two for me! Well this giveaway is strictly for you guys. Pendant necklaces make the best accessories because they’re so versatile. You can wear it long or wear it shot. You can wear it with a turtle neck or with a button down. And they are just so, so simple to make…

Materials: Swarovski Crystal Pendant, Chain, Jump Rings, Plyers

Let’s the be honest, a gigantic Swarovski crystal is all you need to make a statement. Using a rose gold jump ring, I’ve added the pendant to a rose god chain. Sometimes something simple is all you need to add a little fabulous to your wardrobe.

I love the Holidays! To me this time of year is all about spending time with your family, eating delicious desserts and relaxing. It’s a time for me to recharge my batteries and prepare for the new year. 2011 was an amazing year and I’m a little sad to see it go, however I’m looking forward to the new year. Which leads me to the question of the day…

Question: What is the one thing you’re most looking forward to accomplishing in the new year?

I have a long list of goals for the new year. I don’t call them resolution because I NEVER once keep a resolution. I’d love for you to share what you’re most looking forward to in 20-12. Leave your answers below. Contest ends tonight at 9pm pst and with the help of a fancy number generating system, a number will be selected. If your answer falls in the comment box that corresponds with the selected number…you win this Swarovski pendant necklace.  Thank you guys for all of the love and support you’ve given Glitter ‘N Glue this year and cheers to a fantastic new year!

Wishing you all the happiest of Holidays! xoxo

    As I get older, (54 in January) I really want to remain as healthy as possible. Both physically and mentally, for as long as possible. I will continue to go to the gym and try to complete exercises for the brain as well. My family means so much to me and I want to be there for them for many years to come.

LOL I’m retiring very young soon, which means I’ll have more time to spend with family and help my daughter and son-in-law with my grandson, and soon to be grand-somebody else in June. I’m a Master Gardener, so I will get to prove it, and have a nice garden! And I plan to cut through some of my wonder fabric stash and make little clothes for the kids and the dogs. I think I should be feared around here! LOL
