Silver Maple Giveaway!

By now you know I’m not your ordinary chick. I get bats stuck in my crotch, I jump into icy waters in January, and I crap in the strangest of places while I run.

I like to think of myself as unique instead of crude or odd.

And, I like unique things.

That’s why when Tara sent me this prior to my marathon, I melted:

silvermaple

Colorado Marathon 5.9.10

It’s from Silver Maple Jewelry. Jacque, who runs the show over there and happens to be super cool, has been generous enough to offer up a $40 gift certificate to one lucky reader. Silver Maple offers some of the most unique, custom-made jewelry I have ever seen.

Silver Maple uses sterling silver and copper in their creations. Many of their pieces are hand-cut and filed from a sheet of metal for a one-of-a-kind design. By hand, they stamp, distress, brush, and polish each piece to provide a vintage-inspired look. The outcome? A gorgeous, tasteful and unique work of art.

To enter:

  • Visit Silver Maple Jewelry HERE.  Browse around, scratch yourself, have a drink and leave a comment letting me know what you would buy with your $40 gift certificate: + 1 entry
  • Post this giveaway on your blog with a link to my site: +1

Be sure to leave a comment for each entry!

I’ll announce a random winner a week from today – on July 1, 2010.

In the meantime, when you visit the site and decide to buy something, enter the coupon code “ShutUpAndRun” at checkout and you’ll receive 20% off. It’s good through July 4th.

Happy shopping and good luck!!

Silver Maple gave me this gift certificate free of charge as a giveaway. I paid nothing for it.

  16. I visited their site after you posted in April about the necklace you received. I was looking for a gift for my friend, Jessica, who was about to have her 5th baby (and 1st girl!). The baby is now 4 weeks old and her husband deployed to Afganistan last week. Ugh.

    I really wanted to get her the Heart of the Matter necklace, with the names of her 4 sons on the rectangle, and her sweet angel daughter on the heart, but it was beyond my budget. Fingers crossed for the gift certificate!!

  19. I'd choose the "Bragging Rights" necklace (like yours) and I'd have it engraved with "13.1" and "Galveston" which is the half marathon (my first!) that I'm training for. Certainly would be a good carrot on a stick, right?
