Blo Vintage Giveaway

Blo Vintage Necklace Giveaway

Update: Thanks for participating! This giveaway is now closed. Please check back again for future giveaways-or contact me if you make something unique that you think my readers would love!

I'm thrilled to announce a giveaway of a one-of-a-kind necklace from an incredible company out of Georgia, USA. I'm already envious of whoever wins this necklace because I fell in love with it online and have fallen even deeper in the few days that it has been in my house leading up to today!

The company is Blo Vintage, and here is what they have to say about designer Allison Stackpole:
"Through her extraordinary line of one-of-kind lariats, mixed metals, rich leathers and organic stones are blended to enhance the dynamic history of each whistle; each sings with a personality and a story of its own. BLO Vintage has become the line to watch for wearable art."
They truly are wearable art-this is a conversation piece, valued at $120.

"Each lariat includes a vintage whistle - from a beautifully crafted railroad station master’s whistle, circa 19th century England, to a petite, sweet sounding charm-whistle from America in the 70s.  Designed with a sense of whimsy and combining form with function, BLO Vintage offers a truly unique experience for the wearer. "

These are lariats so the ends of the necklace are not connected. Instead, you can personalize the length of the necklace to suit your style.

That's the spot on my kitchen floor where the wood stove used to sit many years ago!

I folded the end without the whistle over the other end in a casual loop with a simple white t-shirt and a black and white top to really showcase the necklace and also looped it around twice up higher for a tighter look.

I'd love this peeking out from behind a scarf during the day to draw people into looking more closely or even with a simple black dress for evening at a party to show it off.

  1. The Brass Bosun with Copper one is super adorable...love the use of a nautical whistle for jewelry!
