First Love Contest #5: Vintage Sparrow & Cathedral Bead Necklace & a Hello Kitty Fun Pack

Congrats Miss Mary, Quite Contrary! Check out her 'Now Entering Momville' blog, which is absolutely hilarious. Love the 'Hitler' reference!

The Lil' Lion with the Red Ruby Eyes

When I was in grade school, I was only interested in riding my tricked out bike. But unfortunately there was a boy interested in me...and his name was Clayton. He saw through my tomboyish ways and gave me a gift one day, to which I said thanks and ran to the bathroom to open it.

Clayton had bought me a little gold lion pendant with sparkling ruby eyes (I lost the rubies over the years). It was lovely...but something stirred inside of me. It was then that I realized that I'm not girlfriend material.

Like Samantha Jones famously said...
"I love you, but I love myself more." And there you have it...Clayton set me up for the 'single city girl who loves fashion more than men' lifestyle.

Tell me about your first (or most meaningful) piece of jewelry. Maybe it was a dime store ring your first love gave you? Or a diamond necklace from your great-grandmother? Or maybe it was a Candy Necklace from your raver days (don't lie, we know you were poppin' and lockin')?

Win this Sparrow & Vintage Cathedral Bead Necklace and Hello Kitty Fun Pack! (Value $58)
This one-of-a-kind Sparrow & Vintage Cathedral Bead Necklace brings my two favorite things together: vintage glass beads & tattoo flash sparrows! In the 1950's, this style of Sparrow was an integral part of tattoo flash.
And this lil' one hangs from vintage deadstock (never used) Cathedral beads. I've sold more of these necklaces than any other
sparrow styles.

PLUS you will also win this Hello Kitty Fun pack that includes stickers, Cinnamon Roll Plush, giant Japanese Hello Kitty button, Paul Frank pins & Charmmy Kitty bag.
