Win a Necklace Made by Yours Truly

October 29, 2010By 70 Comments

So, I don’t know if y’all know this about me or not, but I make jewelry. I just do this for fun; I don’t have an Etsy store set up or anything. Anywho, I thought it’d be fun to give one of my necklaces away.

The deets (you get to choose between)…

Option 1: A recycled aluminum pendant with the word “vegan” hand-stamped on it, with a birdie charm and a red/orange Australian crystal, and it’s hanging on a silver-plated chain.

Option 2: I realize not everyone on the planet is vegan (yet), so I’m including a quirky “nerd” necklace, too. It’s a copper pendant with the word “nerd” hand-stamped on it (’cause I know most of us are just nerds at heart—don’t front), with an aquamarine Australian crystal and silver faceted bead, and it’s hanging on a silver-plated chain.

For your chance to win one of these necklaces, simply leave a comment about something you love that’s vegan (or nerdy). Easy peasey vegan cheesy. A winner will be randomly selected and announced on November 12th.

Good luck!!!

*UPDATE* Winner of the handmade vegan necklace is Jessica! Congrats!

Winner was selected using random.org

    I LOVE my hubby’s Salt n Pepper Tofu! And I love my hubby – who is a nerdy vegan too :) I also love this blog – you introduced me to Everyday Minerals, which I absolutely…. LOVE! : D

    so…um, who won?? Was it me??!

    I am just starting the transition from vegetarian to vegan. Taking baby steps so I don’t get overwhelmed. So far I have noticed vegan products are so much healthier for you and they aren’t all more expensive than regular products. My favorite vegan “discovery” is the vinegar and green tea toner. My face is looking so fresh and so clean! I have given this two ingredient recipe to all my friends and family!
    Loving the necklaces, way cute!

    I am a vegan and I fight daily for the animals. It is a never ending battle. I will never stop until my final breath on this earth. I could never go back to eating animals. It is something that is so wrong in every way. I keep leaflets in the fron of my store at all times and I also rent animal videos for free to educate. I literally keep a Meet Your Meat on me at all times so that I can hopefully help save more lives. 500 animals saved per year per person. That is alot and if we all share our voices for them then I pray one day every cage will be empty. I love this necklace as it would open up a conversation about the animals. Thank you for making them. xo

  6. Andy says:

    I love the compassion of other vegans. The food is amazing (I can’t think of much I’ve had that isn’t better vegan than not.) I love tofu scramble with tempeh bacon, tempeh ruben’s, alomst anything tofu, seitan, cookies and cupcakes…I love being able to pet my dog and cat, and know I extend the love to other animals by not eating them.

  7. Julia says:

    I love how being vegan makes me so much more aware of things. I’ve always loved animals and my connection with them has deepened since I’ve been vegan. (I never knew how awesome chickens and turkeys were!)
    I also feel that my friendships with other vegans are deeper than any other friendships I’ve had in my life.
    So, in short, my favorite thing about being vegan is the depth of my connections to others (humans and non-humans).

    And of course ice cream made with coconut milk.

  8. Jen says:

    Me! I’m so vegan and nerdy that I bribe students, professors and other postdoc’s to come to lab meetings with vegan muffins or cupcakes. And it works!

  9. julietalagatita says:

    I love the moment that i discovered that just about any ice ‘cream’ could be faked (translation – improved upon) by using frozen bananas blended + other fruits, flavors, or ingenious additions (OREOS).

  10. Debbie graul says:

    I am such a vegan dork. I spend way too much time trying to veganize every food i ever loved in my non-vegan days at least I’m successful 70% of the time!

  11. Krystal says:

    I love vegan desserts. Probably the hardest part of being vegan and unaware is that you think you can’t indulge but vegan desserts are the best. Key lime pie is so much better vegan, trust me I’m from Florida and the real deal in Key West is no where near as good. Nerdy? I love my boyfriend, he’s a HUGE nerd and it works oh so well lol

  12. Cindie says:

    I love knowing that being vegan saves animal lives, and that friends are thinking about those issues because of my vegan diet.

  14. Laura says:

    I LOVE vegan handbags by Matt & Nat! They’re SO cool & sexxy! ;)

  15. I like reading vegan blogs all day long. That is both vegan and nerdy! :)

  16. Jessica says:

    I love vegan cupcakes!

  17. Destiny says:

    I love anything that’s vegan, I’m not picky(;

  18. Rachel says:

    On of my vegan fav is baby carrot and zucchinni in apricot yougart after workout! My weird salad but healthy and delicious!

  19. Hillary says:

    I love raising my children to be vegan because they consider their impact on other living beings on a daily basis. We don’t choose become vegan and that’s it, we learn how to be better vegans every day! <3

  20. Amanda says:

    I love being vegan, because it persuades me to eat at home more often. This means more time with my family, more choices in my diet, and more love in my belly.

  21. Abby Bean says:

    I love tofu pups even they’re super old-school, vegan, AND nerdy!

  22. Vegangirly says:

    Loving the necklaces – I am so getting into baking vegan chocolate cheesecake Love it!! Im driving my family & friends nuts!! They will all be getting something vegan for Christmas! :D xx

  23. TK says:

    I am watching Empire Strikes Back for the umpteenth time, while eating
    Vegan Halloween candy=vegan and nerdy! :)

  24. Pink Theory says:

    I love vegan cupcakes. And I love science and physics. I am a vegan nerd.

  25. Emily says:

    I love being veg because you can educate so many people just by making that choice for yourself!

  26. Katherine says:

    I just decided to go vegan on 10/27, after watching ‘Glass Walls’ on the PETA website. So far I’ve enjoyed a delicious vegan pizza & Hostess cupcake-like vegan dessert! I’ve also been able to replace some leather handbags & shoes with some that are all man made materials, but look just as nice. I would love the NERD necklace though, since my daughter calls her style “nerdtastic” and her birthstone is aquamarine. Go vegans and nerds!

  27. Taylor says:

    I love my best friend because she’s vegan and a nerd! Double win!

  28. Katherine Garcia says:

    Here is something I do that’s nerdyy: I am obsessed with my professors office hours. I make sure they all know my name. As a college student, I am in student and faculty senate, the President of Rotaract, and PR for an educational club on campus. In addition, I just launched a recycling pilot program on campus last semester. Can you believe our school does not have an institutionalized recycling program?! Well there you have it, my life revolves around school. Totally nerd-sounding, Happy Halloween folks.

  29. Julia says:

    Hi I like your website. I am a new vegan, so thanks for the help. Only four months and love, love, loving it! So, the vegan things I love are: my husband (who is vegan now too), my Veganomicon cookbook (I am gonna make everything in it!) and Vice Cream (also a cookbook- please try the Pumpkin Vice Cream, as soon as possible- YUM). Nerdy: yes. Thanks for askin’!!

  30. Vix says:

    I love so many vegan things as I am a vegan. I suppose the best thing is a great vegan black bean burger. Such comfort food! I love vegan cupcakes too. Love the vegan necklace. Rich Blessings! xo

  31. Kirti says:

    I’m a vegan nerd, so I guess I’ll do both.

    Vegan – I love that my college took my suggestion about adding vegan desserts. So now we have delish vegan chocolate chip cookies!

    Nerd – I love anime and video games. I’m as nerdy as one could get.

  32. Faith says:

    I love vegan gingerbread muffins :)

  33. C says:

    The necklace is so cute! I especially love vegan pizza (I don’t even need vegan cheese – just tomato sauce and lots of veggies), vegan risotto and of course all those delicious vegan desserts, especially cupcakes (chocolate cupcakes with chocolate mousse!).

  34. Lori says:

    I love cooking vegan treats, especially in the fall!

  35. shira says:

    something I love that’s vegan is the chocolate peppermint whoopie pies I made that are sitting in my fridge right now waiting to get eaten. yum!

  36. Me says:

    I love homemade vegan bread…oh my!

  37. Camyluna says:

    hmmm…Something that I love that’s Nerdy…well, I’m watching Max Headroon right now. I guess that’s nerdy enough!

    I love avocado sandwiches with lettuce, tomato, sprouts and mustard on whole wheat toast. Yummy!

  38. Rainn Kenyon says:

    My son makes the best mushroom and seitan stroganoff…but his scrambled tofu with cheezy sauce, or his tofu benedict, or- wow, we haven’t even started the desserts…I love nothing and no one is harmed in the making of our food. And yes, I LOVE tofu, and brown rice, and veggies, and don’t mind that I do.

  39. Stephanie Hoffstadt-West says:

    I LOOOOOOVE Nacho Mom’s Ultimate Vegan Queso!!!! It is THE BEST!!

  40. The things I love the most that are vegan are fresh Fruits & Vegetables. They taste fantastic, I feel incredible when I eat them and they give me amazing energy and looks!

  41. Eve says:

    Oooh, pretty! I pretty much love all vegan food, but if I had to pick I am currently totally infatuated with vegan coconut milk ice cream. Mmmmmm. Yay, veganism!

  48. Heather says:

    Dude, I covet that vegan necklace! It’s awesome. I love oh so many vegan things but yesterday I had a vegan Pumpkin spice cupcake from a store here called Locali (Think it was made by the Sensitive Baker) and it was soooo moist, delicious, decadent that I was instantly so thankful that I was vegan ’cause I probably wouldn’t have experienced it otherwise. Oh, and Daiya, ’cause I haven’t had pizza in forever and I’m gonna have one on Halloween, oh yes. :)

  49. Tamara North says:

    I love my Finace..who is vegan..in my opinion that is the best vegan thing a guy could love! :)

    Love this necklace, btw!!

  57. Cupcake says:

    That is a beautiful necklace! Lots and lots of favorite vegan items. But being a dessert nut I’d have to say Turtle Mountain’s Neapolitan soy ice cream! Mmmmm. (http://www.turtlemountain.com/products/organic_soy_delicious_neapolitan.html)
