Another Giveway?? What?

Because you all are fabulous readers and because Beth Cyr is an amazing artist and thoughtful designer, I'm holding another giveaway. (I figure if you're doing the shopping hiatus, you need all the help you can get, right?) For some background info, you can see my first post about Beth's work here. You should also check out Beth's blog here. Most recently, Beth has been producing beautiful wedding bands and her latest project includes using conflict free diamonds and 100% recycled metal to produce a one of a kind, eco friendly wedding ring. Beth is a versatile artist whose work ranges from:
Organic, hammered metal bracelets...
Intertwined Skinny Bangles-3 $40
...to intricate floral rings...
Double Amazing Flower Ring 1 $150
...to nature inspired wedding bands...
14K Tree bark Wedding rings $950
...to unbelievably intricate and ornate metal clothes...
Sterling Chainmail Halter Top $5,400
For Down and Out Chic, Beth will be graciously giving away one pair of earrings from her Organic Vines Collection. These beauties are 1 1/2" long and made of argentium sterling silver.
Aren't these gorgeous?

I can tell you from personal experience, as I've been wearing a necklace by Beth for a couple of years now, that her jewelery is as beautiful in person as they look in these pictures.
Here are the rules (please read carefully)
1) you must be a follower of Down and Out Chic to qualify (why? again, b/c it makes me happy and my giveaways are to thank my readers).
2) please go to Beth's website and tell me something...anything...just let me know you've been there. Do you have favorite collection or perhaps a favorite piece?
3) leave a comment here; all comments that are obviously not sincere (as in things that don't make sense) will be discarded.
This giveaway will be open until next Tuesday afternoon, 4/21, and I will announce the winner that night! Good luck!

I love the organic stacking rings. I have a thin ring that I wear at all times. It is simple, delicate, yet gorgeous. These rings are very similar. I love that she uses conflict free diamonds (have you seen Blood Diamond? It's so good and will change your view of the diamond market forever) Happy weekend!

Annette said...

Wow! her work is really really beautiful. I adore the Night and Day Earrings - just my style!

Tamstyles said...

HI..I love the "LOVE ROCKS" bands...my husband and I dont have matching bands because we were sooooo broke when we first got married, and that gave me an idea to do something special. I like the hammered look, and they were simple and not flashy, but still cool, us...

Being Brazen said...

Just found your blog through "adorably distracted". Nice blog :)

Love the Earrings - so stunning. Please enter me in the giveaway.

I really like the Breathe pendant on Beth Cyrs page.

Ondine said...

I'm another who was pointed this way by the lovely Adorably Distracted. Gorgeous jewellery, I love how everything she makes looks very natural and not too "perfect" (that's a compliment!). That Etsy store will be on my birthday wishlist I think.

Ruggy13 said...

Hello Love! LOVE those bangles! On Beth's website, there was a ring sizer that looked like a ziplock tie that would have been very helpful during my wedding! Love your blog bc we're sexy :-)

Carol Ann said...

Beth's Jewellery is wonderful, thank you for sending me to her etsy account...I will order gifts for my girl friends and daughters...I am always looking for something different, something they would not have seen elsewhere.
The earrings are fab...if I can use that word. I love the Organic Vine Pendant with the stone, so me...
Have a great week! Regards, CAM

Megan said...

Wow, she has a LOT of great pieces! Since I had trouble picking just one favorite item, I'll clue you into my two favorite pieces :) First, I love the organic stacking rings, which are already my size! I also love the love bark tree knot ring. So creative!
Thanks for this great giveaway, vancy31[at]gmail[dot]com

paula said...

Oh my, what a beautiful line of jewelry. I really do love all the rings the tree bark and the 3 stack rings are my fave, but it all is quite lovely.

Oh, I think I may go through with the hiatus, yikes!

MissKarenAshley said...

It's all so beautiful! I'm so glad I stumbled across your blog. I love Beth's organic vine earrings with the pearls. Those are absolutely stunning.

I just love Beth's work! She worked closely with me to design wedding rings for me and for my husband....and here's an eco minded money saving tip....she was willing to melt down some old gold teeth I brought her for one of the rings!

Ginger said...

Thank you for sharing this! I LOVE her work; the Love Rocks Band and the Flower Ring are so beautiful and organic . . . if I had any money to spare I'd spend it there;)

Kotori said...

Wow - her jewelry is amazing. So pretty - I love all the delicate pieces and I think it's absolute genius that she sells ring sizers so you can order exactly the right size. So smart.

Another fabulous giveaway Christina! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Beth is such an amazing artist! My personal favorite is the Midnight Vine ring, and if I were to get married again (to the same guy), or maybe for a special anniversary (like my firts one), I would trade my wedding ring now for that one:) If I were braver though I would love to have the Warrior Goddess metal bra nad wear it! It is pretty stunning. And again, Beth is an amazing artist, she has made two pairs of clip on earrings for me and i wear them 350 days out of the year - alternating the two pairs, and they are fabulous!!!

What a great giveaway! Thanks!

I love the Organic Vine pendant and cuff. And pretty much all of the earrings and that flower ring and...

Nice place to visit! I love Beth's stuff... heard about her from my daughter, Charlotte... she has some of Beth's stuff .. gets all kinds of compliments when she wears it ... i'd love to win the earrings for my daughter in law who just had a baby!

Marilyn said...

Another giveaway! I feel like I'm cheating. My favorite piece, while not on the site, is the pendant necklace that Robert gave me for my birthday a couple years ago. I know, gag. I love her jewelry because it's simple and classic, but just edgy enough to make it different and fun. Those bracelets would be perfect for my Roman holiday.

Amber said...

Oh those earrings are gorgeous! Thanks for having another giveaway!

I love her Dandelion Wishes Drop Earrings. They bring me back to carefree childhood days when it was such a joy to find a random dandelion and make a wish, believing with absolute certainty that it would come true one day.

Hey xtina.. Congratulations on getting into grad school..
I love Beth's artwork.. and think Beth's pretty rad too. Her custom wedding rings are amazing. I can't believe after all these years that I don't actually own any of her stuff.. but maybe that will change after this contest. Thanks for keeping us informed on what's cool :).. oh yeah.. and take a break!

How did I almost miss out on a great giveaway! Thanks for the reminder. All of her stuff is gorgeous, but I have to say that her organic vine collection is so me! I love every single piece.

I don't think I can get any luckier this week but I feel I need to comment on how gorgeous Beth's jewelry is. You've got some great finds here-good luck to all!!!!

Colleen said...

Love Beth Cyr's work! How to pick a favourite?

I would say the marvelous golden knot bark rings with little stones in the center of the knot.

Or the diamond leaf rings.

NinaGibsonDesigns said...

I am a great fan of Beth! I love her work with argentium. I love those bangles! Her shop is fantastic. Love your blog, too!

Rachel said...

Oooh, I'm not too late!! Yes, I am a follower for sure! And I love her stuff. I think my favorite is the tree bark ring?! I mean, they're all adorable. But I love stacking bands, and one of these would look great with my other rings...

Thanks for the chance!
