Emma Gerard Review & Giveaway

I recently got sent some handmade glass charms/pendants by Emma Gerard. Can you spot them?

What about now?

If you couldn't spot them all, here's a pic without the real sweeties! I have lusted over Emma Gerard's work for a while now, so when she agreed to send me a few bits to review, I was a very happy bunny :) I love having pieces from independent designers, they are usually so different than things you'd get on the high street. These pieces are no exception, each one is handmade from glass(!!). Emma kindly sent me 3 candy bear pendants, 1 candy worm pendant & 1 candy foot pendant from her shop, as well as a candy button brooch for me to giveaway to my readers.

The pieces are really well made, they look almost exactly like the real thing. Being made from glass, they are more fragile than another medium, but as long as you don't go around bashing them on every surface I think they'd be quite hard wearing! I plan to add mine either to a charm bracelet, or a necklace, but I haven't quite decided yet! Overall I absolutely love them, & would definitely not hesitate to order from Emma in the future (I have my eye on her candy bead bracelet, hehe!). You can also find Emma on Facebook, & Twitter.

Here's the candy button brooch Emma has kindly sent me to giveaway to you, my lovely readers! This may be more familiar to my US & Canadian readers, I don't think we get (the real version) these here in the UK, but they do look scrummy!

To enter, you must first be a follower of my blog. Then please have a look at Emma Gerard on Etsy, & leave a comment here telling me which piece looks most edible & why!

For additional entries, follow me on Twitter, or Facebook, & leave additional comments here telling me so. This gives you up to 3 chances to win, but remember to leave separate comments with each entry, or only 1 will be counted!

The giveaway is open until 12pm GMT next Friday, that's the 19th of August! Good luck! :D

  10. Ooooh, so glad you brought this designer to our attention. They all look so good!

    I think the Sour Peach Pins (http://www.etsy.com/listing/21702551/sour-peach-pins-lampworked) look most edible because the delicate sugar on the pins is making my mouth just scrunch up in anticipation of the sour/sweety goodness. Yum yum. :) xxx

  12. I love the glass candy bracelet because it reminds me of the candy necklaces and bracelets I used to buy as a kid. My friends and I would eat them while we were wearing them, so we always ended up sticky!

  23. I think they all look edible because they all look so real! I use to try to eat these glass hard candies my grandma had as a decoration (in a glass jar), and if I was 3 again, I would probably try to do the same with these XD!

  24. As unoriginal as I sound, I love, love, LOVE the glass candy bracelet too! The Sour Peach Ring comes in a close second! It really just seems delectable. :d I also really love the Candy Bear necklace, but I think I would go crazy and buy a whole punch so I could make an entire collar necklace out of them. My wallet would DEFINITELY hate me! XD
