UPDATE:  This giveaway in now closed.

UPDATE:  This giveaway has been extended until Wednesday, August 15th.

You all know I hate seeing things go to waste (as evidenced by all my Food Waste Friday posts).  That’s why I loved Marjorie’s Cracked Plate Jewelry.  She takes broken china, something that would otherwise be thrown out, and repurposes it into a stunning piece of jewelry.  Marjorie’s Cracked Plate Jewelry is wonderful in quite a few ways.  For one, there are dozens of beautifully designed pieces already on her site.  Additionally, she makes custom pieces for those who have
broken a beloved piece of china and wish to have it memorialized as a wonderful piece of jewelry they can always use.  Her newest piece of custom jewelry was featured on her blog  and it was so touching, it almost made me cry.   A woman who had a son who was very ill and in
severe pain suffered the loss of that son when he committed suicide.  On the day of his death, she broke a saucer.  A friend of hers asked Marjorie to design a jewelry piece from that broken china.  The pendant Marjorie designed was splendid, but it was the story behind it that was so moving.

Anyway, on to the giveaway!  Marjorie was kind enough to offer this stunning piece for one lucky reader!

This yellow pansy pendant with gold artist wire wrap  is 1-3/4″ x 2″ and comes with a black velvet cord with lobster clasp.

The giveaway starts today and continues on until this Friday, August 10th at 9 p.m.  Leave a comment on this post, telling me why you’d love this beautiful piece of jewelry (and who wouldn’t?).  If you sign up for Doggone Thrifty via email, “like” me on Facebook, or follow me on Twitter, you’ll gain an additional entry into the drawing (just let me know in the comments).  At the end of the giveaway, I’ll pick a winner at random and I’ll notify the lucky commenter via email.

Good luck!
