Holiday Contest #4

We here at Benson Street Jewelry are getting ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow - lots of last-minute grocery shopping, decorating, prepping, and baking going on!

Do you have a special recipe that's your go-to crowd pleaser?  One that dazzles your loved ones with it's awesome flavors and/or gorgeous presentation?

Rivoli Crystal Earrings

I had to take a pic w/the lights off, these crystals sparkle so much it was hard to get a good shot of them!

All you have to do to enter for this week's prize - our beautiful, sparkling Rivoli Crystal Earrings with .925 Sterling Silver findings ($20 USD value) - is leave a comment below about your favorite Holiday Recipe.  Include the recipe or a link to it if you'd like to share, but we also understand about closely-guarded secret family recipes!

These earrings are sure to add a bit of glitter to any holiday outfit - from your favorite dress to jeans and a comfy sweater.  We also have different colored Rivoli Crystals, apart from the clear you see here.  I'll try to get some pics of them up ASAP, but it most likely won't be until the weekend.

For the Rivoli Crystal Earrings giveaway, here are the rules: 
1. Comment below with your favorite holiday recipe, or just tell us a little about it if it's a secret!
2. Only one entry per person, please.
3. Winner will be chosen at random using  We'll close commenting on Tuesday, Nov. 29 at 5pm CST and announce the Winner shortly after.  Winner will be notified via e-mail, so please enter your e-mail address in the appropriate field when commenting (it will not be published).

Thanks for entering, and Good Luck!

Congratulations to our Rivoli Crystal Earrings winner,  pickedandpainted!

"hum...there are too many to list. I would have to say my Grandma's trash. It's like chex party mix but tastes homemade and is so much better. Oh, and it tastes nothing like trash!"

Holiday Contest #3

Thanksgiving is almost upon us!

It's time to think about the things that we are thankful for, get ready to spend time with our friends and family, and have some delicious food.  A nap or two wouldn't be so bad, either.

This week's giveaway is a newer piece of ours, the Birthstone Dome ($20 USD value).  It's a .925 Sterling Silver Small (1/2") round, stamped with up to 12 characters, hammered into a dome shape, and nestled atop a 10mm faceted round Swarovski crystal.  

It's a really cute piece, and reminds me of a pretty little acorn:

Holiday Contest #2! - Contest has been extended to Monday!

Due to a technical error, we're going to extend the Rounded Rectangle contest until Monday 11/14 at 5pm Central.  So you still have plenty of time to get your quotes and "likes" in!  Don't forget to have your family and friends "like" your quote - the comment with the most "likes" will win!

This week's contest will be for our Rounded Rectangle tag ($25 value).  It's a 1" by 1/2" .925 Sterling Silver rectangle with rounded corners that can be hand-stamped with up to 3 lines of 15 characters/spaces each.  It can be fashioned into a necklace, bracelet, or even a pair of them can be turned into earrings!  I really love the look of this piece - so much so that I asked Mendy to make it into a necklace for me:
