Giveaway - Peace and Love from Meridane Designs

I love this design!!! I have received so many compliments and questions about this unique and beautiful piece! I love jewelry with a story and this is a great one to share.

This is how it came about.....


A woman named, Sally Short, took the letters in the phrase, "Love is all you need" and superimposed them on top of each other in a rectangle shape and added a peace sign.

Sally sent off the design to be made into a pendant. When it returned, the family was looking at it and noticed other letters. They discovered every letter and every number! How cool! When you give this to someone or wear it yourself, you can spell any word or name you wish! It has a special message for anyone wearing it, but can mean something to everyone.
This would make such a great gift for a couple, it's a very unisex design, looking great on a man or a woman. What better message than love?

Where Can You Buy One?
You can order pendants, earrings, bracelets, and combined with different gem stones.

Where Can You Win One?
Well, here, of course! Meridane Designs has graciously offered one lucky reader a pendant of their own - choice of large or small in sterling silver.

  15. This would be a gift for my mom. Her 50th birthdayis coming up and this would be a great gift. My siblings and I are throwing her a big surprise party. I am a triplet. Each triplet could write their own message for my mom so that she could read each message in the pendant!!!! This would be the perfect gift to celebrate her big day.
