Love to Run Pendant Giveaway

By , February 15, 2010 4:55 am

I am really excited about this giveaway! A few weeks ago, I was thinking about how much I love my “running gal” necklace I purchased myself from Tarma Designs in 2008.

“I should contact Tarma Designs and see if they will give away a piece of jewelry for my website!” I thought. That thought was immediately followed by “yeah, right.” I have tried contacting companies I like to see if they will sponsor giveaways and have had no luck.

But, by chance, I got Tarma Design’s monthly newsletter in an email the next day, and took it as a sign that I should contact them… which I did, and they immediately replied that they would be happy to have me select a piece to give away! They even looked at my site a bit and we chatted about Chicago architecture.

So, I selected the “Love to Run” Pendant!

Love to Run Pendant

Here is the description from the Tarma Designs website:

Tarma’s Love To Run series offers a new cast collections that’s lightweight and fun to wear. Can also be worn as an anklet. Pendant is about the size of a dime on a 2 mm cord with Adjustable Button Toggle. The pendant is 316L recycled stainless steel (min 60% post consumer content). The RePly cord comes from recycled PET bottles made in the same mill that produces Patagonia’s recycled fleece program.

I found out about Tarma Designs from an ad in the back of Runner’s World. I was intrigued by their focus on spirit and adventure in their jewelry and also by their earth-friendly manufacturing process, re-use of materials and shipping methods. I’m sure if you check out their site, you will find many beautiful pieces you love!

    My dear the jewelry is amazing! I can’t choose one but would probably order the entire running and yoga collection which is incredibly gorgeous!! This is such a fabulous giveaway, thanks! I have to check if I can order some products from here. Which -on the other hand- would probably a bad idea and ruin me ;).

  35. Kim! What a great idea! I like the leaf earrings found in the nature section. But don’t put me in the running for the necklace since I’m not much of a runner. I’m going to head back to the site and look at more of their stuff – very cute!

  36. katy says:
