Giveaway :: Girl Tuesday Jewelry

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Happy April, dear Bright Siders! In honor of our theme, We Love Hue, we are so excited to bring you a giveaway which helps define the very essence of how we feel about color and all that it means. Sure, there is the literal interpretation of color and hue; however, let’s not forget what color means to our hearts, to our spirits. The colors that live inside of us float around and are the backbone of what makes us smile, what makes us sing. These colors express themselves in many ways, from our choice of accessories to the food we eat. For me, I know that the easiest way to express myself on any given day (the easiest way to let my color shine) is through jewelry.

Girl Tuesday Jewelry is hand crafted, unique jewelry designed with “wearable edginess.”  Rachel Cecere found herself through design and her personal expressions are the direct manifestation of her own journey toward allowing her inner color to shine through. These pieces are the ones you find yourself reaching for on those mornings when you need something to remind you to stay true to yourself. (The Chevron Necklace and Native Daughter Necklace are personal favorites.) For me, expressing myself and my true colors doesn’t always mean bright and bold. Sometimes it means simple, elegant, and exquisite. Sometimes it means Girl Tuesday Jewelry.

Girl Tuesday Jewelry is giving away one Tinseltown Necklace  to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question by Wednesday, April 11th.  Comments are now closed…good luck!
Besides using your words, how do you express yourself?
Start checking the winners’ box on Monday, April 16th, to see if you’ve won!

    Through my actions. How you treat others directly reflects your inner self.

    i’m very easy to read and wear my emotions on my face, so i’m always expressing myself nonverbally. it’s both good and bad. 🙂

    through writing, painting, dancing, smiling, crying, touching, flirting… most importantly expressing our own personal vibe in all the right and wrong moments of life. We all as individuals are full of so much spirit and energy that speaking represents only a small example of the ways in which we can relate and affect those we chose to surround ourselves with.

    I silly walk. I know it sounds ridiculous but whenever I am feeling elated, I find myself doing prat falls, prancing, high stepping or wiggle dancing around the room. AND, it gets laughs which makes me even happier.

    I wear my heart on my sleeve and find it impossible to control my facial expressions! I think I express too much with my face – like when I a smile at inopportune moments or knit my eyebrows together when I’m irritated and I don’t want someone to know, but I can’t help it. I’m going to be so wrinkly one day from my overly-mobile features but I think that’s a fair trade for an honest life!
    I think that one of the beautiful things about face-to-face contact is the different layers of understanding you get form someone via their body language or facial expressions or intonations that are lost to you in an email.

    Jenn K. says:

    I think I express myself a lot through my actions, daily movements and things I do for other people.

    Jac says:

    I often use my wardrobe to express how I’m feeling. Happy and I’m wearing a pop of color or some fun accessories. Tired I’m in a hoodie and jeans. Sexy in something more fitted with a heel and  makeup. Confident, or at least trying to fake it, I’m in heels and jewelry and a blouse instead of a t-shirt.

    Amelie says:

    With touch!  Holding a pal’s arm when she is telling me something difficult, offering a back massage to a stressed out friend, or just a high five when my coworker helps me out.  It connects us in a way that might sound trite with words.

    AmyB says:

    I am a very introverted person but I have found that I can express myself through creating things. I knit, crochet, sew, make jewelry, and also dabble in several other random mediums. There’s something about a handmade gift that says “I love you” or “I think you’re pretty awesome” without having to use words.

    i am actually not much of one for words…verbally, that is. i love to write and i love to draw and i love to cook. these are all my forms of expression. and they seem to do the trick.

    Beverly says:

    I express myself through how I treat people. You can tell a lot about a person based on how they treat others, and I always try my best to treat everybody the way I would like to be treated. Whether this is a stranger, a best friend, a family member or a coworker, I always try my best to treat people with the upmost respect. I am supportive and nurturing to my friends, competent and assertive in the office, and loving to my boyfriend!

    Wearing cute pins and brooches on my sweaters and purses. Sometimes the pins are made by me, which often adds to the story. They always get my students’ attention!

    Kellie says:

    I am a dancer and I’ve learned to let go of of things through movement and dance. If I didn’t have it, who knows where I’d be! I’ve come to rely on it as a way to say what words cannot.

    Kristen Hughes says:

    My husband tells me the night we met he couldn’t get over how expressive my eyes were when I talk. Which means I can’t lie worth a hoot, but I can tell him a million things with just a look!

    Emma says:

    Oddly, through the way I walk When I feel particularly happy and fierce, any walked distance becomes my runway, Naomi Campbell-style. When I feel down or angry, that distance becomes the set for an action movie, complete with swooshing around corners and snappy headshakes.

    Angelique says:

    Without words, I express myself through my body. I’m not a dance or performer, but I am a physical being in this world. The way I dress, the color of my hair, who I embrace and who I shun all are expressions of facets of who I am–the business jacket that says I am a force to be reckoned with; the funny T-shirt that says I’d love to share a laugh with you; the plunging neckline that says I don’t think I have to wait to be a size zero to be sexy; the ever-changing hair colors and styles that proclaims I am a work in progress.

    Linnea says:

    I express myself through writing, cooking, and landscaping. I enjoy finding beauty in the simplicity around me and using that beauty to express the whole gamut of feelings that I have in my everyday life. BTW, I love this necklace! I bought a pair of earring that look almost identical from an artisan market in Cuernavaca last summer and I would love to have a matching necklace 🙂

    Tiffany A. says:

    I definitley express myself through clothes. Clothing and accessories really do convey feelings and can always make me feel better! I think a strong cute outfit can say I am confident and ready to take on this new day! Whereas when I just want to hang out and run some errands on a rainy day, a pair of yoga pants and a cute top can work perfectly!

    Eye shadow. Specifically, eye shadow from Sweet Libertine in a variety of amazing colors. Also through my face. I have the opposite of a poker face. I couldn’t lie to save my life.

    other than facial expressions, i sing! songs that suit my mood, it’s like i have a playlist in my head haha 😛

    With my outgoing overly happy smile, I started to volunteer a few hours each week. After being laid off from my job, I developed a fun digital art program that allows kids to experience out side of the box thinking, design it and write about the process. The program includes teaching kids about how wonderful Colorado is and that the opportunities are endless. After starting working with the kids, I received an invitation to an award program at the Denver Public Library and several of the kids won awards with their projects. EXCELLENT WORK!!!! Remember – kids are our future leaders – share your experience – you will make a difference.
    Have a fun-fabulous day!

    i have a very expressive face, so people who know me well can always tell what i’m thinking or feeling just by reading my expression.

    Jeanette Centeno says:

    I express myself in many different ways – music, art, writing, and action. It really depends how I feel. Go with your gut!!!

    I love to bake for others!  It is a very natural thing for me.  When someone does something nice for me I like to make some kind of goodie as a thank you or just make something for someone ‘just cause’.  It always leave a smile on their faces.

    I used to be a ear-rings person before I spent time in the UK and discovered an obsession with gorgeous neckwear.  Who knew necklaces could be so flattering? Thin or chunky, silver or beads, there’s enough for every day of the week and for every occasion (well, almost). Strong necklaces are handy with a baby who pulls on ear-rings, too 🙂

    Besides using your words, how do you express yourself?

    with my needlework. I knit, I needlepoint, I love to create. It’s my zen. My time to zone out and just focus on creating something.

    I wish I could say something cool like “i express myself through my art.”. But I don’t. I’m Italian. I talk with my hands.

    elizabeth says:

    I think when I’m feeling creative, I express myself through playing my guitar or dancing, even just in my living room. I also think I express myself in my marriage quite often by acts of kindness for my husband. Just little things here and there, but even when we’ve had an off day, doing something kind for him reminds me that I may not be able to choose how I feel every moment, but I can choose how I behave and act toward him.

    Jen says:

    I make a lot of faces. Not always on purpose. Sometimes I have to be careful!

    Monica says:

    Umm it’s a little odd; bouncing up and down and waving my hands around and smiling bigger than the cheshire cat well, that’s for happy and excited and frustrated (minus the smile) when I’m upset I’m still too still.

    Expressions..sometimes I can’t help the faces I make. I get it from my momma and its both good and bad.

    I’m always expressing myself through some sweet dance moves – even while sitting at my desk. The happier I am, the crazier the dancing!

    JennieG says:

    I am a very passionate person. This often manifests itself in different ways be it my wardrobe choices: from eccentric bold ensembles to low key classic pieces. My facial expressions from the sparkle in my eye to the furrow of my brow. My straight proud back to my stressed rounded shoulders. My silky smooth hair to my wild curls. My spirit reveals itself.

    Deena says:

    Apart from my art, I try to make everything about my appearance be about self-expression: from my makeup (or lack of) through my clothing to every little detail that i hope speaks about my personality.

    Sarah Peirpoint says:

    Through my actions of course. Especially of late, I’ve found it easier to express myself without words… pulling my daughter closer when she’s at a loss for words, rubbing my son’s back when he’s ill, or just simply picking up an extra treat for a co-worker from the bakery on my break.
