Your Lucky Day {GIVEAWAY}

I'm a very superstitious person.  I wish on eyelashes and shooting stars and never walk under ladders.  Every year at midnight on New Year's Eve, I eat a piece of herring, which is a German tradition to bring good luck, along with a grape, which the Spanish believe brings prosperity and wards off evil.  And no, I'm not German or Spanish, just someone who figures a little extra insurance can't hurt.  And that's why the jewelry from Be Charmed Designs is right up my alley.


This just looks like a pretty bracelet, right?  Not quite.  The idea behind it is that when you put it on, you make three wishes, one for each bead, and you wear the bracelet until it falls off, which is when your wishes will come true.


The "Three Wishes" bracelet is knotted on Irish Linen which comes in lots of different colors and you can choose sterling silver or gold vermeil beads.  And I love that the closure is another small bead that slides so you can adjust the size. 


There are other wish-themed bracelets like this one with a dragonfly charm, which Native Americans believe symbolize renewal after hardship.


Or this version with a heart for someone you love.


And there are other inspiration messages too like the "Good Karma" design which features an unbroken circle....


As a reminder that what goes around, comes around.


But good fortune doesn't only come in the form of bracelets.  The Name Tag necklace features two names or words hand stamped on discs which hang from a sterling circle pendant with a Hamsa Hand to offer protection from evil. 

And the Heart and Soul necklace reflects all of the beauty in the world, with a hand-crafted heart shaped sterling silver bead strung on Irish Linen and knotted together will a citrine bead, fresh water pearls, faceted nuggets and a hammered tiny disc. 


The great thing about Be Charmed Designs' necklaces is that the bead closure allows you to wear them so many ways - as a long necklace, a shorter choker or even as a bracelet.

But not all of the line is about luck or protection.  Some pieces, like these necklaces, are just lovely. 


I'd be lucky just to own one.  Maybe that's what one of my three wishes will be.....
One of your wishes is about to come true because Be Charmed Designs is giving away a "Three Wishes" bracelet to a lucky AFOMFT reader!
