Show off your Bling: August Hashtag Contest!

We have been taking advantage of the sunny summer days and rocking our summer wardrobes, and we’re sure you have been, too!  Show off how you accessorize your summer wardrobe and get a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Drakestail Jewellery!

For the month of August, enter our hashtag contest to win a $50 Drakestail Jewellery gift certificate!  To enter, just post a photo to Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook, and include our hashtag: #summerbling2014.  There is no limit to how many times you can enter, and each unique photo counts as an entry.  The winner will be selected by a random draw.  The contest is open to entries worldwide.

Step 1: Snap a photo of your favourite summer look.  It can be a photo, a selfie, any style you like.

Step 2: Post your photo to Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram.  Each unique photo counts as an entry.  For example, if you post a photo of your favourite summer dress and a great stack of bangles, it counts as one entry, whether you post it in one location or any combination of them.  Tag your photo with our hashtag: #summerbling2014.  If you’d like, describe your photo, we’d love to know why it’s your favourite!

That’s it!  The contest runs until the end of August, 2014.  A winner will be selected at random from all the valid entries.  Have any questions?  Email us and we’d be happy to clarify!

A custom creation close to home

There’s a little travel involved to see my father-in-law and his wife, so we don’t see them as often as I’d like.  This past weekend, we got together with them, as well as with my sister-in-law and her family, to celebrate a couple birthdays.  Completely stumped for gift ideas, hubby let me make gifts for both my sister-in-law and mother-in-law.

I put together two birthstone pendants, which turned out fabulous.  The one on the left was for my sister-in-law.  Her husband is an October baby, so his gemstone is pink tourmaline (the alternate to opal).  She gets a July ruby, and both their daughters were born in April, and have diamond as their birthstone.

The one on the right is quite similar!  My father-in-law is another April baby, my mother-in-law gets a June pearl, my hubby is another October tourmaline, then another ruby, and then another April diamond.

I love how the two necklaces ended up being so similar that they match, and that the colours look so good together!
