Rumtinn Accessories Review and Giveaway


Margo at Rumtinn Accessories, was kind enough to give me a unique, one-of-a-kind spoon pendant to review and she is giving another one away to one of my readers! First, let me tell you a little about Rumtinn Accessories. Margo started Rumtinn Accessories as a creative outlet for herself. She loves to create unique, one-of-a-kind items.  She makes everything from hair accessories, to necklaces, clothing, purses, etc. Basically, whatever inspires her at the moment. All of her items are made from vintage pieces that she has re-created into fabulous works of art. I am truly amazed by the vast variety of her products.

When I received the pendant above in the mail, I just had to put it on right away! It is so cute. You can't truly appreciate all of the 3-D details in a photo. This necklace makes a great conversation piece and yet it is girly at the same time. You definitely won't have to worry that one of your friends will be wearing the same thing, because, as I mentioned previously, all of Rumtinn's items are one-of-a-kind. This pendant comes with a 11-inch chain that is strong enough to hold it and has a large lobster claw closure. I was impressed with the quality of the necklace as a whole and with the chain. I have ordered jewelry online in the past that has come with, well let's face it, flimsy chains that  break easily. That is not something you will have to worry about with this one. Margo takes pride in her work and it shows.

If you live in the Wichita, KS area, you can see some of  Margo's items in person at The Onion Tree. You can also purchase items directly through Rumtinn Accessories or through her JewelryWonder store. Margo also has a blog called Margo is crafty, in which you can follow her on her crafting journey. She gives lots of great tips and how-to directions for craft projects.

I went over to Rumtinn Accessories and I really like everything she creates! But, I must say, since I love owls so very much I would have to go with the Owl pendant 1 necklace! Very cute!

Margo is indeed crafty! The spoon jewelry is a very cool idea - love it! I looked at her site and would have to say that the Spoon Owl Pendant is my fav, with the Owl Pendant 1 being a close second. Didn't even realize that I liked owls??!! :)
