Giveaway: Win a "diamond" ring

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR PARTICIPATING!

In a recent post I mentioned a lovely “diamond” ring designed by an artist in NYC named Alissia Melka-Teichroew. After mentioning the post to Alissia in an email, she was kind enough to send me 5 of her "diamond" rings to give away to a few lucky readers of The Sweet Jelly Bean! Each ring is a size 7 and will glam up any outfit or occasion!

Some simple steps to win one of these lovely rings:

1. FOR ONE ENTRY: Visit Alissia's online shop to look at all of her gorgeous products for sale. Pick your favorite. Return to The Sweet Jelly Bean blog (that's here) and post a comment to this post identifying your favorite piece. Be sure to leave your email address instead of commenting anonymously (if you're not logged in) so I can notify winners!

2. FOR A BONUS ENTRY: Begin "following" The Sweet Jelly Bean blog - please comment on this post to let me know you've done so!

3. FOR 2 BONUS ENTRIES: Mention this giveaway on your own blog and link back to The Sweet Jelly Bean. Please comment on this post to let me know you've done so!

The contest ends Friday, January 30 at Noon PST. Winners will be chosen using random.org. I will contact winners following the close of the contest and mail out your rings shortly after (sorry, rings must be shipped within the US). Good luck everyone!

As I mentioned before, I was really taken with this ring and asked Alissia a couple of questions about the piece and her continuing work:

Where did you get the idea for the "diamond" ring?

When thinking about a diamond ring, I always wondered if one, I would want one myself and two, if the diamond itself really meant anything to me. I also liked the thought of creating accessories that are not really made out of the material they were first intended in (diamond ring, pearl ring, pearl necklace, watch, medals of honor, prize ribbons, lockets, etc). When working on the Diamond Ring and Pearl Ring in Silver, I really wanted to create the different widths to make the idea of a diamond ring even more questioned, is a 2mm silver diamond ring just as valuable as a 9mm silver diamond ring? Or do we need the 25mm silver diamond ring to prove that we're in love and will stay with someone forever? From this the plexi coloured rings came and seemed like a logical way to grow the line of Diamond Rings and create even more variety on how to create your "perfect" diamond ring, by stacking the colours and different materials.

What are you working on these days?
The USB Key featured on Coolhunting mid-December (getting that manufactured). We're working on more glasses for the InsideOut Glass Collection, that is being manufactured and distributed by Charles & Marie. Next week Kikkerland will launch the Soft TreeTrunk Stool as well as products coming out for a new brand hopefully by March. Also working on more table top, jewellery and small furniture designs.

Special thanks to Alissia for her generosity - she is a talented artist, and we wish her well!

Wow, all of her stuff is so neat and original! I dig the 'medals' a lot and the 'ring a day' seem pretty nifty, but I think my favorites are the black and silver 'diamond rings'. They look very versatile too; easy to dress up or just wear with your jeans.
Me likey! :)
