Giveaway that guarantees you’ll get jewellery for Valentine’s Day!

red heart CT logo On our drive to Toronto a few weeks ago, Donna told me about the time her hubby came home on Christmas Eve all proud of himself for getting all his shopping done at Canadian Tire in an hour. Or was it half an hour… well, anyway, Donna’s reply to that was “I didn’t know Canadian Tire has a jewellery counter now.” Oh, snap!!

If your primary gift-giver does all his shopping at Canadian Tire too, you need to enter our Valentine’s Day giveaway. Then you know you’ll be getting jewellery for Valentine’s Day :-)card 2Melanie Roy is a jewellery designer from Dieppe, New Brunswick. I discovered her work when my friend, artist Matt LeBlanc, gave me some of Melanie’s jewellery for Christmas. That’s right, my hubby doesn’t give me jewellery, but my secret boyfriend does ;-) When Matt asked what colours I like and I told him purple, cobalt blue, and bright green, I didn’t expect him to send me three sets of jewellery, one in each colour!!

purple 2 blue 2 green 2

The pictures don’t do Melanie’s jewellery justice. The components are silver-plated metal and the earring hooks are sterling silver, to keep your ear lobes happy :-) It’s absolutely beautiful, and wearing these pieces makes me feel so good :-) And we want you to feel good too, so we’re giving away a necklace & earring set to one lucky DesignTies reader!! Melanie has generously contributed this glass crystal necklace and earring set for our giveaway:

Glass crystal-together

And it’s so easy to win — all you need to do is check out Melanie’s Mé Bijoux Spring 2010 Collection on her Facebook page, and then leave a comment on this post telling us which piece is your favourite. Seriously. That’s it. What?? You want it to be more difficult than that?? Well, OK, if you insist…

1. For one entry, check out Melanie’s collection and then comment on this post.

2. For a second entry, write about our giveaway in a blog post or put it on your sidebar with a link back to this post, then leave a comment here to let us know you posted about it.

3. For a third entry, tweet about our giveaway on Twitter and leave a comment here with your “@” name to let us know you tweeted about it.

The giveaway is open to everyone, and you have until noon on Valentine’s Day to enter. We’ll announce the winner next Sunday evening… so if you want jewellery for Valentine’s Day, be sure to enter!!

I tired the link but it wouldn't go thru, will try again. Her pieces are beautiful. The hubs is very good with buying jewelery, he bought me something special when we got married, and for the birth of our 2 girls. But I'm the bad gift giver ( I swear sometimes I'm the guy........maybe I should get his things at C.Tire.....he'd love it)! Thanks for sharing.

I love photo 38 - flower pendant with glass beads - so adorable!

Maria Killam said...

The flower pendant is my fav! That Canadian Tire story was funny!

Donna @ dh designs said...

That Canadian Tire story is the God's honest truth! Things have improved greatly in the jewelry department though - perhaps the hint was received!!! Great giveaway - and how lucky are you to have such a great "secret boyfriend" :)!!

Melanie's pieces are gorgeous - always happy to support Maritimers!!!

Robert Petril said...

Beautiful! But, where's the Men's??? Girls! Humph!

Sharon said...

I like the one which can be worn as a choker or longer. She does fab jewelry!

A perfect venue for hubbies to shop!! Love the first one with the continuous cirles...it's lovely.

Michelle

I laughed out loud at the Canadian Tire story. That is SO my husband (although I'll give him credit because he's getting better lately)!

What lovely jewelry. I'm not sure what the necklace is called that I liked, but it was photo 14 on her page. GORGEOUS.

What a fun idea to do a jewelry giveaway for Valentine's Day. :-)

The Canadian Tire Story could totally translate to what the guys here in the states also probably do at Central Tractor stores, lol.

Fun contest! And Melanie's pieces are beautiful.
This is kinda funny, but I immediately was drawn to "Kelly's Purpleliscious". I see this one was custom made for you (lucky girl!) and it also shares my name. Strictly coincidence! I think I like it best cuz it has the most color/stones. Very funky and playful.

Monik said...
