Polyvore Challenge and Bohemian-Inspired Jewelry Blog Celebration Weekend

Jun 22, 2012

What would you wear with the jewelry pieces in the new book, Bohemian-Inspired Jewelry? The book's authors, Erin Siegel and Lorelei Eurto, are giving away two of the necklaces in the book -- the Pompidou Necklace by Lorelei (featured on the cover!) and In the Garden by Erin -- to two lucky participants in our Polyvore Style Challenge.

The Pompidou Necklace by Lorelei Eurto (instructions in the book Bohemian-Inspired Jewelry)
In the Garden by Erin Siegel (project instructions in the book Bohemian-Inspired Jewelry)
Here's How the Polyvore Style Challenge Works:

Step 1: Become a member of Polyvore.com, if you aren't already. Not familiar with Polyvore? This fashion website is hugely addictive and fun, and it's easy once you get the hang of it!

Step 2: Use the Polyvore Clipper to "clip" the photos of either of the necklaces from this blog post to your Polyvore account.

Step 3: Create a Polyvore board using the necklace as your centerpiece, and show us how you would wear it! You can see a sample board created by our PR Director, Jaime Guthals, here.

Step 4: Tag your Polyvore board photo with the caption "Bohemian-Inspired Jewelry" and leave a comment on this blog with a link to your board so we know where to find it.

Step 5: And that's it! By creating a board you'll automatically be entered into our random drawing to win one of the necklaces. If you create two boards, one for the Pompidou Necklace and one for In the Garden, you'll be entered to win twice.

Prizes for the most likes: There are two other opportunities to win - this time for free copies of the book! The participant in the challenge who receive the most "likes" for his/her board on Polyvore.com will win a complimentary copy of Bohemian-Inspired Jewelry. We'll also be pinning all of your Polyvore boards to BeadingDaily's page on Pinterest.com and the person who receives the most "repins" over there will get a copy of the book too. Just be sure to leave a comment here with a link to your board so we know where to find it.

Wait...there's more! Join us for a blog party this weekend! Join us in our weekend blog hop celebrating the book's launch! Thirty fantastic bloggers from all around the country will be joining the party and sharing their thoughts on the new book, plus a few bloggers will be offering chances to win copies of the book, so you don't want to miss out. Check out their posts all weekend long!

Kicking it off: Beadingdaily.com (right here!)
