The Rusted Chain handstamped jewelry giveaway!!

A few years ago, Sean asked me what I wanted for Christmas.  We just had our 4th baby and I was done with having babies for a while.  I was content with four and so was Sean.  So I asked for a handstamped necklace with all of the kiddos names on it.  Almost every time I wear the necklace I receive some sort of compliment on it. 
Beki Hastings began making custom jewelry back in 2003 in rural Kansas.  Her business soon turned into The Rusted Chain.  She not only sells custom made handstamped necklaces like mine, but also sells bracelets, earrings, necklaces for gals and guys.  She has a wide variety of items available in her online store and will ship worldwide!

Beki doesn't do all the work herself now.  Her company stays busy handstamping (by hand) all of the letters featured on her jewelry items.  Every piece is truly one of a kind since they are not using machines.

As I was browsing through her online catalog, I have my eyes on several other items.  There is just so many cute items to choose from!

From this "blessed" necklace::
 or another "blessed" necklace with a heart stamped through the middle.
From one of many selection of elegant handmade earrings!
 Got a cowgirl in your life?
 Wouldn't this necklace look stunning on you?
I love this one for all my photography friends out there!
Or what about this simple bracelet with a heart accent?

 How would you like to own your very own item from The Rusted Chain?  Well today is your lucky day!  

Beki, so graciously gave me a $25 dollar gift certificate to give to one of my readers!!!!  I warn you though, you will have a VERY difficult time deciding what to spend this certificate on, so if you can't handle the stress then close this browser now!

This contest will end on Monday, July 29th at 9:00PM (CST).  The winner will be selected by my husband using random.org.  The winner will be notified by e-mail and will be announced on my facebook page and blog.  If the winner does not return my notification e-mail within 72 hours a new winner will be selected.
