  1. I love Jan’s Jems! So glad that there is this giveaway! I hope I win!!!!! My favorite is the blue beads crocheted necklace. Here’s my first entry!
    email: lisslevine [at] gmail [dot] com

  2. I would definitely pick the green tree pendant. It’s perfect for me. All the other jewelry is so beautiful too!

    I’m already following your two tweets, but don’t worry I’m tweeting about this and facebooking it too! ❤ megan.shea34@gmail.com

  3. I am following your tweets (yes I went on twitter finally) and posted it on facebook and tweeted it! My favorite would be the Blue Beads Crochets Necklace, all of the jewelry is gorgeous, it was so hard to choose! My E-mail is rr0425a@student.american.edu

  4. and now I follow @strtgystilletos. You the blog. This is how I separate you in real life too. You know between my little and the high power fashion blogger PR girl who gives away really beautiful jewelry. I’m in love with the jewelry here by the way… I might have to actually buy some of it.

    • this is too much, they are the same! real stacey and blogger stacey are the same!

      but if we’re dividing you up into two, i follow both the twitters!

  5. oh and I just tweeted about all this great jewelry. So I got all my bases covered. and all my versions on you too. ❤

  6. If I won I would like the Crystal Beads Crocheted Necklace. It’s pretty awesome and should be on someone equally as awesome. My e-mail is JuliaPeltier03@gmail.com.

    Also, I’ve been following both of your Twitters forever so I should get extra points.


    Anyway, blue bead crocheted necklace is what I would love if I won, and my email address is sm5190a@student.american.edu

    xoxo I love everyone

    p.s. you should pick me so I can give it to my mom for her 26th wedding anniversary!

  8. I fell in love with the blue beads crocheted necklace. What a beautiful statement piece! The sea foam blue, my favorite color, would go perfect with a summer tan! That rainbow effect on some of the beads is gorgeous. Gold is my absolute favorite, too. Just re-posted on facebook! gm0373a@student.american.edu

  9. The Green Tree Pendant is easily my favorite, I have a silver box chain that would look perfect with it. Handmade jewelery just feels much more special, it has that one of a kind feel. Keep up the great work!

    My email is Samanthamplatt@gmail.com


  10. Red & Blue Wire Wrapped Pendant is also stunning! i may have to change my choice if i win! Ihave two entries for the comment on your blog and for posting on fb. Wish I could have more entries! I dont tweet! damn! I posted my email with each comment, so….. hope I win!!!
