La Bella Jewels {Giveaway}

UPDATED w/WINNERS: Congratulations to Stephanie from Musings of a Modern Day Mom and SamnHal of The Married Couple (y'all email me, k?) The rest of you go buy yourself something nice at La Bella Jewels. You deserve it.

Four Layers of Love Sterling Hand Stamped Necklace - Thicker CharmsAll in the Family Sterling Coin Necklace - Hand Stamped and Personalized Just for YouAll In The Family 7 Name Hand Stamped Bracelet

Sometimes you don't need words to describe something beautiful.

La Bella Jewels speak for themselves.

La Bella has been a long-time sponsor of my blog and she has fallen in love with the life-changing blog of Kisses From Katie. She created this gorgeous necklace, specifically for the amazing ministry that feeds, clothes, covers and even provides chickens for poverty-ridden orphans: Amazima (translated to mean truth).

And she's sending Katie one!

This sterling silver dainty necklace is gorgeous, $30

She is generously donating HALF of the proceeds from this necklace to Amazima!!

La Bella Jewels is also offering TWO $50 gift certificates, to two readers today, winner's choice.

Would you consider supporting Amazima by purchasing this beautiful necklace too, so others will know the truth?

Please leave a comment as your entry. This giveaway will close Thursday.

I love the jewelry and the girl behind Amazima. I had hoped to buy a necklace for my Mom for Christmas from La Bella, but someone else decided to not pay my husband for work he did, and well..... Anyway, I just retd from Africa, but left my heart there. I'd love to win and get something for my Mom. She's done so much for me and now for my family. She, truly, deserves something precious and beautiful.

Thanks for the giveaway and for supporting such a worthy organization.
