Giveaway :: Tiny Armour

Thursday, May 24, 2012

{please visit tiny armour here}

I am a sucker for simple. Granted, I adore some fancy ornate bedazzlement from time to time. But give me the option for what makes me feel the most beautiful and I will choose simple every single time. This isn’t to say I like plain. Or boring. Or forgettable. There is an art to creating simple without losing chic, without forgetting sophistication. It is, in fact, more complicated than one might think.

Tiny Armour, created by Los Angeles based designer Angi Glenn-Quincy, is the physical manifestation of perfect simplicity. Taking inspiration from architecture, textiles, geometry and the magic of mid-century modern design, Glenn-Quincy creates the type of jewelry that becomes the staple upon which you depend. Trying to pick a favorite piece is like asking me to pick a favorite child (as in, I’ll point you to all of them, physically unable to choose.) Let’s try this or this. Or this. This. And two of these (one for each child, of course.)  Sigh. Tiny Armour. Simple modern adornment, indeed.

Tiny Armour is giving away one Tiny Initial Sterling Silver Ring to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question by Thursday, May 31st. Comments now closed…Good luck!
What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
Start checking the winner’s box on Monday, June 4th, to see if you’ve won. Good luck!

    Quit my job and open a pet rescue. Having rescued two dogs I know that there are too many animals that need a loving forever home. I’d love to be a part of finding one for them.

    If I knew I wouldn’t fail I would move to Africa and open a school for girls. I would recruit doctors and nurses, and start an adjoining health clinic. If I knew I wouldn’t fail, I think I would finally have the courage to really put myself out there.

    Oh wow, that’s a great question. I recently went through a breakup from a 16 years relationship, and I’m in the process of re-discovering myself. There are so many things I never thought I could do that I’ve recently done or am about to do. I bought a car all by myself in March. I went horseback riding last Monday. I’m in the process of buying my dream condo. I lost 90 pounds in the past year. So what would I do if I knew I could not fail? Skydiving. Sell my art. Write a book. And I’m probably going to try at least one of these in the next year! Thanks for your awesome website, I found it yesterday following a link from Kelly Rae Roberts’ website.

    I would become a physician and open up a community clinic…which is pretty much the same thing I am pursuing right now knowing that I CAN fail!

    I’ve always struggled with a fear of failure, so lately I’ve been trying to teach myself that it’s okay to fall on your face sometimes. This has been primarily fueled by renovating our home with my husband, who is not afraid to try things and is patient and teaches me to tackle tasks all by myself (I tiled the entire bathroom floor and it came out marvelously!). Despite this growing confidence, I am concerned that I don’t have a great temperament to be a mother. If I KNEW I wouldn’t fail at it, I’d be all over it, but knowing I’m going to stumble and make the wrong choice sometimes seems so big when you’re shaping little lives. I mean, I’m going to eventually take the leap, with my patient, wonderful husband and I supporting each other, but it’d be so much less scary to know I’d succeed!

    I’d cook. I’m hopeless at it or maybe I’m intimidated by the unexactness of it all. Give me a recipe and I’m okay, but random, spontaneous cooking? Shudder.

    Jac says:

    I would create art for a living. I still want to do this right now but it is very scary knowing that I have a child to support so failing really isn’t an option. Instead I’m taking it slow and working a more steady full time job and creating in my free time. This helps pay the bills but I’ve also gotten very comfortable with it and am having a hard time pushing myself to that next step. It’s one I need to make though if I really want to pursue my dream.

    That’s easy – build a time machine and go to the Jurassic period. I’ve always wanted to see dinosaurs! Obviously my time machine will come with a phenomenal suit of armor so Mr T-Rex won’t be able to eat me up.

    (Actually, Mr T-Rex wouldn’t; he does not belong to the Jurassic but to the Cretaceous period. But since I can’t fail, clearly any dinosaur I want to see will be there!)

    I left school at 15/16 as I was going through a massive change in my life. My dad was in the USA (we live in NZ) on business, my mum (who has MS, and has been divorced to my dad since I was 2) was living with me at my dads… I was tired of everything and tried to end my life. Depression and anxiety disorder were what I was diagnosed with. – Needless to say, my schooling was the sacrifice I gave to become happy again.

    Now I am 21 with a 21 month old daughter- Addi. She was born 08 09 10, 4 days after the Christchurch September Earthquake. I was told my chances of conceiving naturally were slim (PCOS & Endo) but there she was- beautifully unexpected.

    I am happier than I’ve ever been… And everyone is asking me what I want to “do with my life”. The answer is that I want/need/would love to open an old fashioned ice cream parlour… You know, 1950’s… 

    Christchurch is slowly rebuilding itself, and I have wanted to do this for years. I’ve always been told it’s not possible without qualifications so I’m trying to go back to doing study- obviously something that’ll help this dream.

    I think it’s entirely possible and apart from Addi, it is the only ‘thing’ in life that gets my heart racing. I’m so excited to do this and make a safe, new, exciting place for people of all ages to just escape to.  

    I’m scared to fail but I think the risk of failing is all worth it for this.

    Move to Greece. My biggest fear is that if my husband and I were to move we would never see our family and friends. If I knew that we could move, and still be close to all of our friends and family it would be magical….
