Blog Competition – Name these earrings

12th April 2009 12 Comments

** This competition is now closed **

Welcome to my first blog competition, I’m very excited!


I have just relisted these earrings, with new pictures, and decided they need a new name. But I am totally uninspired, so I wondered if you could help? I want to call them either something reflecting their warm buttery mustard tones, the genuine amber or Art Deco inspiration. The best I came up with is ‘Delicious Deco’….

You can either vote for that name, or provide your own to be entered into my competition to win 20% off ANY pair of earrings currently listed in my etsy shop. Remember, I also have free international shipping throughout April too, so that’s a considerable saving!

To enter all you need to do to enter is:

*Visit my shop and choose the earrings you like*
*Look at these amber earrings*
*Then comment on this blog post telling me your name for the amber earrings, which pair you’d like 20% off, and your email address*

The competition is open til Monday 20th 6pm GMT when I will announce the winner.

Get your thinking caps on and good luck!

    What about “I can’t believe it’s not…Baltic Amber”!!!
    or ” Honey Moons”
    or “citrus et noir” just french for lemon and black?

    This was so easy after all my fussing around. Good luck

    Hmmm… Chic Mellow Yellow? That’s the first thing that came to mind when I saw the colors. That’s amber??? Wow! I’ve not seen a yellow amber before. How neat!

    I have two favorites. The Smoky Pebbles and the Blue Grass. Decisions decisions…..

    Beautiful jewelry all around. :)

    How ’bout “Honey Butter”. Mmmm, I used to love that. Do they still make it?

    My favorite earrings in your shop are Glacier (amazonite and green garnet, if I remember correctly.) I’ve even featured them in a treasury or two, so I should own them. ;-)

    Good luck with your first giveaway! It’s fun, and easy!

    deco tart. it’s what i thought of, because the bottom beads look lemony.

    i love the mocha smoky quartz trio earrings. those would be good for a 20% off. or any of the pearl earrings. those are great.

    juliaa at etsy of course. :)

    Ok, this is fun! I think my name for those earrings would be Honey Harlequin.

    My favorite in your shop for the 20% off are the raspberry pearl hearts.
