Diamonds are a girl's best friend - May 27 Give away day!!

Diamonds are a girl's best friend...dogs are man's best friend...
What (or who) is your best friend and why? It might be your coffee maker or your fluffy slippers or a good book... My favourite comment will be chosen as the winner of my give away present (I promise I will not be biased as to the actual 'best friend' item). I am in Sydney, but am happy to ship anywhere in the world!



I do love sparkly things, hence the diamond creations that I will be giving away (pictured)! The diamonds are flat, made from silver metal clay (99% silver) and dangle from a sparkly pink ball chain. I made the necklace quite long (32 cm [12.5"] from clasp to diamonds; 64 cm [2
5"] total length), but am happy to shorten if desired. The largest diamond is 4.5cm wide and 3cm high.



I also have more items on Etsy - so please pop by and visit my store! This giveaway will be open until May 31. Thank you for visiting and good luck!

High school lovers we became...
which I know does sound lame...
But inseperable we have been...
since we were just a teen.

Best friends and lovers we'll always be...
He puts up with my crap you see...
Although we are very different
We make the most of time together spent.

My husband of 17 years is my best friend. We have five children together. We go for a walk every night and hold hands and talk. He treats me like a queen. I can share anything with him. He's never upset when the house is a mess because I've been sewing all day or for whatever reason.

My children would be my next best friends. And then my sewing machine.

My best friend would have to be my right hand for without it I could never create the things I do which would leave me a very sad person :)

Love your bling!

djaj said...

Thanks a lot, I now have a song about diamonds, girls and friends printed in my head for a couple of days !
I love your lace, the idea is just great !

mickyndan said...

My best friend is the first coffee I have in the morning... if it wasn't for my best friend I wouldn't be able to start my day... LOL

my best friend is my dog foxy. i live alone, but he is there when i wake up, when i come home from work, when i need to hug someone, company on walks, and always makes me feel better after a crappy day. i dont know what i would do without him!

i adore your necklace, thank you for hosting a great giveaway!

Kim said...

Ooh, awesome!
My best friend is my boyfriend of 3 years who has yet to get me a real diamond...I think this necklace would tide me over nicely for the time being!

My best friend... 1) my morning cup of coffee 2) My girlfriends Reb, Carrots & AJ 3) My sister 4) My knitting. Sometimes -because I'm sort of a hermit- I rely on the coffee and knitting to get me through the day. :) And guess what? I live in Sidney, Nebraska (USA)... and you live in Sydney, Australia. It's meant to be.

Awesome necklace!. My hubby is my best friend, no matter how many moves we make, or stress we may have he is always there for me with open arms to wrap me up and hide me away.
Thanks for the giveaway.

My best friend is my knitting - it has seen me through thick and thin (and thick and thin again)!

Digital Misfit said...

My computer is my best friend. We play games, chat, learn new crafting techniques, send mail, listen to favorite songs, laugh at funny videos, meet new people, and shop on etsy together :)

millymollymandy loves to quilt said...

My best friend ( of the non-human type) would be my bra !! DO NOT LAUGH !! Is always there to support me...is with me everyday ( or else I would not be seen in public !!) and requires minimal recipricol attention other than a cleansing hydro-bath ( washing machine )
There are some friends in life you can just not be without !

LOVE teh necklace...and everything else in your shop.

Valerie said...

My husband is my best friend (even though he hogs the blankets and would NEVER think of buying me something as darling as that necklace for my birthday, which is Sunday ; ) But he does make perfect cups of tea, and he gave me beautiful babies, and he's an awful lot of fun.

Stephanie and Carlos said...

My best friend changes. This morning it was my warm slippers. Right now it's my sons sleep toy which he is asleep with... tonight it will be a well deserved cherry ripe ice cream waiting for me in the freezer... that's if I don't eat it now!! hehe

BF4E - best friends 4 ever!!

we're having a give away too!! YAY

Katy said...

Your jewellery is gorgeous, i especially love your Butterfly Geisha pendant in your store - put me in the running for the sparkley diamonds though :-)!

Flickettysplits said...

My best friend and I have been best friends since fourth grade (we're 35 now). She's like the other half of my soul. I call her the Sister Of My Heart.

Meadow said...

The library is my best friend. So many books and I can borrow them for free!!

I think this necklace is awesome, probably my favorite thing yet (and you are way down in 'S' so I have seen a bunch of giveaways).

Lauren said...

My best friend is Blythe. She's always there to offer a little plastic hand, model clothes I could never wear, and get me strange looks wherever I go!

Christina Lowry said...

My best friend is a pen. I love to write notes, to-do lists and draw! :)

Holly said...

I love the necklace. My husband is my best friend, even though he never gives me diamonds :)

SavingDiva said...

My best friend is my sister...and she's getting married this summer...I am considering purchasing the Butterfly Geisha for her...

Deb said...

Funky necklace! My best friend...my HUGE mug. Perfect for whatever hot drink I happen to be craving.

Christy said...

you've got great stuff on your shop! So many wonderful designs!

L said...

Wow! That is the most awesome necklace ever! If I won that I know that I would be making lots of best friends because everyone would want to get close to me to steal it. My birthday is June 1st and I can't imagine anything nicer to win or wear. My dogs are my best friends because they never abandon, argue, lie, steal, or not love me. Thanks for hosting a great giveaway. I'm in the USA.

Great Giveaway

Tasha said...

my best friend is my teddy that I got from my Nana when she passed. he is ery old and loves cuddles when I need them still ;)

Jingle said...

Diamonds. Funny how we have decided that the best, most beautiful, most valuable, most wonderful thing is a lump of squished coal cut into a pretty shape! I mean, really. Have we thought this through? Personally, I like your version better. The focus is on the geometry of it all. It holds the true beauty of art rather than the perceived value of something coveted by many. They are unique.

Cindy said...

Hmnmm....my best non-human friend would be my coffee maker. Let's face it, I'm not human until I have a cup.

Beautiful jewelry.

Heather said...

My best friend--husband aside--is my PedEgg. It has turned my callused, disgusting, cracked feet into appendages worthy of a foot model!

AltaModa said...

Okay, so my husband is really my best freind, but aside from him and the kids, my favorite old worn out jeans are my best friend. A freind and I recently decided to start running and when I mentioned that I would have to go shopping because I don't own any jogging pants, shorts, etc she was amazed. She asked me what I wore around the house to be comfy- my favorite jeans, of course!

mjb said...

These are really cute!

B said...

As cheesy as it may sound my husband is my best friend. He's the only one who hears me out on EVERYTHING and accepts me for me, faults and all. Who could go wrong with a man like that?

trashalou said...

loving that someone chose their bra as her best friend - there speaketh a wise woman ;-)

i have to name my husband too. It is true if somewhat twee, sorry.

Thistle Cove Farm said...

depending upon the day either dogs or husband are best friend.

JBear said...

My laptop is my best friend. It opens me up to creativity, current events; easy access to anything and information on everything.... and the best thing of all... stupidity.

The internet makes you stupid. That's all I can say.

Liz said...

My best friend is my handbag. Can't be without it, knows all that's going on with me, keeps my secrets, tells me things I've forgotten...

Only problem is that I need more than one!

Love your work. Gorgeous!!

melonkelli said...

My dog is my best friend -- he's always ready to cheer me up, and he loves to go for a run. We don't have to talk -- and he always loves my cooking!

ru said...

my best friend is my wife - to whom i would give this if i win it! (might be the only diamond she ever gets out of me!!)

Sonja said...

Just lovely! I have the perfect top to wear that necklace with.

Sara said...

My best friend is my cat, Killian. He is always there for me - and has been with me when my daughter moved 3000 miles away, through a rough divorce, and having to put my mother in a nursing home. He always licks my hand and sleeps right next to me.

BTW, I love your jewelry...

marzy dotes said...

Very pretty! My best friend when hubby is at work and the kids are asleep is my sewing machine.

babalisme said...

My best friend is my baby girl! She's all I had and always be there for me as I be there for her!

susan marie designs said...

Oh I love this necklace! Honestly - I'd wear this any day instead of the real diamond stuff!

My just-turned-4-year-old daughter melts my heart every time she says, "Mama...you're my best!". (I love that she leaves it at "best".) So my kids, and hubbie, are my best friends.

But sleep would be a close second. With sleep I'm happy and a better person, without her I'm grumpy. It's a love/hate relationship though - I love sleeping, I mean I REALLY love sleeping - but I also burn the midnight oil waaay too often.

Thanks for the fun giveaway! ❤

Little Lady Cakes said...

My best friend is my husband. Cheesy but soo true. :)

em said...

My best friend is my husband of 31.5 years (gosh, time sure flies by). I love the necklace and would be overjoyed to win it.

Lilly said...

My best friends is a big chocolate bar =DD It is delicious and always make me happy!
I love this necklace!! It is adorable!
Thanks a lot.

Hannah Laura said...

My husband hands down is my best friend!

Lara said...

My best friend is my hubby...who gave me the best gifts ever....my two sweet, amazing daughters! He sold his motorcycle to buy my wedding diamond...so whenever I see any kind of diamond, I think of him :)

QuiltChick said...

My best friend is my dog, Scarlet, aka Puppy, although she is almost 10! Lovely item, thanks!

Capital Mom said...

Love it. I think I would have to build a whole outfil around it.

susan said...

My best friend is my hubby of 32 years on 5-28. We live 3.5 hours apart during the week due to our jobs and the poor economy. I'd be honored to wear this beautiful necklace to celebrate our anniversary.

This is something my daughter would love. She likes the unusual and unique. thanks for participating

The Retired Mama said...

My best friend is of course Jesus my Lord. I would be no where without His love and support. The necklace is beautiful. You are a very talented artist. Thank-you for the opportunity to own it.

Super Fun Mama said...

Uh-my best friend would have to be my spanx, lol.

jannza said...

Your necklace is beautiful!

My best friend is my husband. : )

janny said...

My best friends are my walking shoes. They take me out when I spend too long in my sewing room.

Emily said...

Best friend? My bed. It is awesome. It is big, and, soft, and comfy. I'm sitting on it RIGHT NOW. :)

Mindee A. (llamaface29@yahoo.com) said...

One of my very best friend's is my younger sister, and oh my goodness, this would be SO perfect for her! Her birthday happens to be June 7. She's the kind of girl who regularly visits the Tiffany & Co. website. She loves all things shiny, sparkly, jewelry-related. I always give her something diamond related. Unfortunately not REAL diamonds cause I'm poor :( But I love her very much. She has grown up to be an awesome person. I love getting to hang out with her which doesn't happen very often since we live in different cities. When I get to see her, it's a hoot. She cracks me up, and I can't imagine having a better friend or younger sister!

Thanks for being so generous! You rock, like a huge sparkly, many-carated diamond :)

Oh no! I just saw that it has a pink, sparkly chain. I think you and my sister would get along famously!

Anonymous said...

I am a girl, but my best friend is definitely my wiener dog!
Thanks for the chance to win your beautiful work!!

Jasmine said...

definately my 22 month old son. He just cracks me up!

Bec Clarke said...

You are very clever to make that. My best friend is spare time, we never see enough of each other at the moment.

Ali said...

Lovely necklace - thanks for the opportunity :)
I guess my best friend would be my mum - unconditional love and understanding and tolerance! ;)

Nancy said...

My best friend is named Gloria. We share so many common interests and really enjoy each other's company. She's old enough to be my mom. Actually, she has a daughter my age.

Amanda said...

Lovely necklace. My husband is my best friend, hands down. <3

Ifallsmichelle said...

Thank you for the chance to win the wonderful necklace. My best friend is a glass of red wine and relaxation in my peaceful flower garden on a warm summer afternoon.
