Manic Monday Free Giveaway: TwisTeD Silver Shower Earrings

Posted By bectemp on Nov 24, 2008 at 3:05AM

picture of twisted silver pearl drop earrings on blue background

Monday, Monday.  Can't trust that day.  Another Manic Monday and another free giveaway from one of our favorite bloggers, TiNa, and her awesome site TwsiTeD Silver, the place to shop for fabulous and funky jewelry.

We were recently feeling a little less than jolly about the holiday season, but the closer it gets to Thanksgiving, the more festive we are feeling, especially with a holiday ensemble that would include the dazzling TwisTeD Silver Shower earrings.

So get your mind in holiday mode and enter to win this glamorous shower of baby pearls earrings.  The cascading looks flirty and exudes Hollywood.

(Element: Brass and glass pearl Weight: Medium (.4 oz) Drop Length: 2 1/2 inches Design Size: 1 inch.  $40.)

Pop on over to Twisted Silver to find your favorite holiday accessory. Then pop on back to Girl-Woman-Beauty-Brains-Blog and tell us in the comment section which piece would add that je na sai quoi to make your holiday outfit sizzle.

The giveaway ends at midnight on Sunday, November 30, 2008. Winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. The lucky winner will be announced on Monday, December 1st. (U.S. residents only.)

Beckie:  Which one would you pick, Jamie?

Jamie:  I am feeling the vintage trend this season, so I am partial to the Vintage Bling Convertible. Any hints on what you would like for Christmas?

Beckie:  You know that I lean to modern classic designs, but for fun and to change things up, the Fly Necklace is the perfect way to jazz up my LBD.

Stay tuned for more TwisTeD Silver updates on how to accessorize your wardrobe this holiday season with TwisTeD's release of The Ultimate Party Wear Guide.

Current headlines on GWBBB:


Wishing you a manic-free Monday.

Contest ended.  Congrats to Tatertot!

I think the candy wrapper necklace would make any outfit fun. I think it would be great for the holidays because of all the colors.

I love their bracelets. Athena and Funcky are probably my favorites but there are some close seconds.

I have long coveted the Hardware bracelet. If someone doesn't cough up some money and get me this, I am going to have to do it myself -- in my best martyr attitude, of course.

My favorite Twisted Silver piece is the Medallion Necklace. I think it is ultra cool in its unique design, it is versatile in that you can wear it casually with jeans and a cashmere turtleneck or you can easily wear it with your favorite dressy little black dress. I think this necklace is a real show stopper that will definitely catch the eye of those around you. Thank you for the opportunity to enter. Happy Holidays!

That alabaster bracelet is pretty amazing. I just love Twisted Silver. It's hip but not follow-the-leader which I love.
