Anne Franklin Designs Necklace Giveaway

I’ve been trying to limit giveaways just to stuff I really love and endorse, or items that I think send a positive message about fitness and wellness (like the Commit to Fit series). Today, I’ve got a giveaway of a product that is totally unique and is handcrafted by a local runner, mom of three, and artist.

Anne of Anne Franklin Designs must have really liked board games as a child. More specifically, Scrabble. In all of her creativity, Anne decided to take Scrabble tiles and to repurpose them into necklace charms and key chains. The colorful designs are sealed with a  shiny resin finish and offset by a colorful four-strand combination of ribbon and cord.  Necklaces measure approximately 18".

The above is a sample of her race-related tiles. These are just a few of the many types of necklaces she offers. There are charms specific to holidays, pets, flowers, sports and sport’s teams, monograms, you name it. She will even custom-make a tile for you if you send in a picture. I am going to have one made for my daughter for Christmas of her one-eyed, three-legged dog, Lucky (who is really not so Lucky if you think about it. Here it looks like he has only two legs).

Anne keeps her prices reasonable. Part of her mission was to create personalized items that were affordable.  Her necklaces are only $15 ($20 for a special order). Shipping is $3.

Want one of the beauties she makes?
