Wednesday giveaway!

Today's giveaway is from Pyrrha, a handcrafted jewelry collection based in Vancouver. Worn by celebrities like Katie Holmes and Reese Witherspoon, the personal talisman necklaces symbolize what you are and what you believe in. For example, the anchor above symbolizes hope and optimism, and the bee stands for creativity. (My favorite might be this mother bear, which symbolizes strength, ferocity and the protection of one's children.) How incredible and empowering to wear one everyday.

One lucky winner will get to choose her favorite piece from the shop (up to $200). Which would you choose? See them all here.

For a chance to win, please visit Pyrrha's online shop, and leave a comment below with your favorite piece. A winner will be chosen at random tomorrow. Good luck! xoxo Update: Aubrey B. is our lucky winner. Thanks for playing. xo

I love the Noah's Ark necklace and the French inscription, Apres La Pluie Le Beau Temps which means Good Times Follow The Rain. Thank you!!!

Mrs.MBGordon said...

The Mama Bear is such a sweet totem for a recent, first-time mama like me!

ChelseaS said...

These are beautiful and I love how they hold so much meaning! I'm drawn to the peace of mind anchor necklace, as I spent many summers as a child on a loud commercial fishing boat, and whenever we got to drop the anchor and shut off the engine it was always much more peaceful - especially if it was stormy out!

Sonja said...

The Rhode Islander in me would *have* to have an anchor! (They're all so gorgeous!)

Kim O. said...

Wow, what an amazing giveaway. I love the talismen. My favourite (I think...hard to choose!) is the "Peace of Mind" necklace. I really like the descriptions and meanings of each. Beautiful!

ellebeth said...

I looked a Pyrrha a few weeks ago. It is so hard to pick just one!! I do, however, love the Still Have Hope anchor. The anchor has personal meaning to me because of my Navy family and one late night discussion about 'finding your anchor' in life. This would be a beautiful reminder of that sentiment.

jeanette from everton terrace said...

I seriously want them all. The crown of feathers would probably be my first choice, the two hearts with the ribbon maybe 2nd. They are just beautiful.

Jo Waterhouse said...

I would have the bodhi leaf, I don't know why - it just speaks to me.

Libby said...

love the unbreakable piece - totally describes me at this point in my life.

Kelly Rae said...

I would choose the hidden flower. It's so pretty and I love the message behind it: "Beauty is all around us if we choose to see it."

These are so beautiful. I would give the Healing pendant as an engagement present to my brother's fiancee.

Sadie Rae said...

The bee is my favorite!

Amanda said...

oh wow, these are beautiful. I love the faithful friend one.

How to choose?!? Oh, so beautiful, all of them. My faves were Devotion, Owl, and Sincerity.

I think the Devotion one would be my pick, though.

Thanks for introducing us to these amazing pieces!

crimsonlips said...

The anchor is my favorite. I love that it represents optimism and would be a perfect reminder.

Miss Singer said...

I absolutely love the anchor neclace! I have an achor tattoo on my right foot and my fiancee and i have incorporated the anchor into our wedding in various places- we are getting married in Rhode Island and using the state flag (which has an anchor and the word "hope") in our favors.

Bailey Jae said...

I browsed them all, but was still taken by the Anchor, must for the Rhode Islander in me!

Nicole said...

Love the stork or the mother bear necklace!!! Great Giveaway :)

Carol said...

Wow, those are beautiful, and Canadian to boot! I think I like the Elephant the best, although it's certainly hard to choose.

L_Fletcher said...

oooh, tough choice, I think it'd be down to the "3 graces" or "wisdom conquers all", great meanings and pretty to boot!

Molly said...

What a charming and thoughtful shop! I love the idea of wearing your motto around your neck every day! I like so many! The lion and sword is reminiscent of something my father designed and I might like that one. Thank you for sharing, this is really lovely!

Joanna said...

So hard to choose a favorite! But right now I'm loving the leaf and the tower.

Rebecca said...

Hi,

I love this giveaway, it's come at a good moment. I'm just about to sit my finals exams and, in addition to the anticipated scrambling of my brain, I'm also feeling exceptionally lost. I don't know where to go from here, what avenue to pursue, or how much courage I can muster to do something outlandish and from my heart.

For these reasons, I love the Stag and Diamond necklace: http://www.pyrrha.com/shop/product/id/111/stag-and-diamonds-wax-seal-necklace

'I trust my own strength' is exactly how I want to feel about myself. That I have the ability to do well in whatever I set my mind to doing, and will be able to intuitively find what I'm meant to do.

(I'm so sorry that it's $2 over - I can pay the excess & shipping!).

Molly said...

I'm astounded by the sheer variety she has! Such a cool collection and I love that you can keep the meaning of the talisman sort of secretly to yourself :)

Jacquelineand.... said...

These are all so lovely it was difficult to find one I could say I liked the best but the New Path necklace really spoke to where I am in my life right now.

I love the "Unbreakable" one, I love birds, particularly Corvids (Ravens, Crows and Blackbirds) for their intelligence and ability to adapt.
