The Pretty Peacock Review & GIVEAWAY! Ends 7/31




Uniquely designed jewelry holds a special place in my heart and I have found a company that creates awe inspiring pieces that pleases the eye and soul. I recently contacted The Pretty Peacock and she has generously offered a chance to review a pendant and give one away to one of my readers as well!

Ana Talukder Simpson is a brilliant jewelry artisan who creates each one of her hand crafted pieces with love. Please take a moment to read Ana's About Me page to learn more about Ana's company and history.

When seeking out jewelry for myself, I don't look for something that has to match a specific outfit. I delve for something that will go great with anything I decide to wear that day. Silver happens to be one of my favorite metals and Ana must have had this in mind when she chose my stunning piece to review :)

Ana generously sent this gorgeous DreamWoven Sculpture Pendant from the Good Karma Collection for me to review. The moment I opened the package, I was stunned by the beauty within. The box was wrapped attractively in tissue paper with a ribbon and a single, lovely peacock feather.

I carefully unwrapped the gift and set the wrapping aside to find the gift box inside. I'd like to mention that this was a complete surprise to me, I had absolutely NO idea which piece I would be receiving. It felt like a gift and my anticipation grew fierce wondering what was inside the box. I still handled the package with care while opening the lid and found the most beautiful hand crafted necklace inside.



Ana definitely put her heart into crafting this pendant and I couldn't be more pleased to share this experience with my readers. The pendant swirls with the words hand stamped inside "Find your bliss" and dangles on a lovely silver chain. I cannot express just how much the picture doesn't do this necklace justice. The patterns etched into the pendant is quite detailed. This piece really is exquisite and breathtaking. Thank you, Ana! I adore this necklace.
