Of a Kind Giveaway!

*  the giveaway is now closed * congratulations to Laura! *


this is the first time i have ever done a giveaway on the blog – a pretty momentous occasion! and who better to kick off the giveaway fun than something special from Of a Kind? literally, very special. each week Of A Kind releases a limited edition item in a small batch, which is designed elusively for them. that means you can be one of only a few people in the whole world who has a one of a kind piece.

so, i’m psyched to offer one lucky reader this beautiful Pyrite Pyramid Necklace by Sophie Monet.

Pyrite – also known as fool’s gold – is courting the spotlight these days, and we haven’t seen the material put to better use than in this pendant necklace created by Sophie Monet. The shiny, irregular surface of the rock plays well with the smooth, geometric chunk of shedua wood.

…one of only 20 made! all you need to do in order to enter the giveaway is subscribe to the Of A Kind newsletter  (so you’ll be the first to hear about their new releases) and leave a comment below.

i’m also happy to tell you that this giveaway is open to anyone anywhere in the world as Of a Kind offers international shipping. readers outside the US must please note that, as with all international shipping, you may be subject to your country’s customs charges / import duties upon arrival.  the giveaway ends on Monday 12 September, and the winner will be randomly selected in a lucky draw.

  1. This necklace is gorgeous! I have a piece of pyrite that was a gift from my brother when we were little. This is such a nice application for the stone. I love it.

  2. wow… always dreamed of having fool’s gold (conversation starter for sure) & the unique beautiful design is a bonus… holding thumbs

  3. I *love* Of a Kind, and this necklace is fantastic. I’ve been eyeing it for weeks, willing it be mine… perhaps now’s my chance?

  4. Beautiful! Love the combination of different elements here—and is that a rose gold chain? This is a really great fall statement necklace. I’m obsessed and will probably now become a Of a Kind junkie as everything else on their website is equally as interesting and beautiful.

  5. Oh my, but that’s a lovely combination of materials! Definitely entering this giveaway. :) Thanks for the great blog!

  6. Wow, what a beautiful necklace. I gave up wearing necklaces about a year ago, because I got bored with the ones I owned and I didn’t have the patience to go out in search of anything new and suitable. But I think I could wear this with just about everything I own, from my favorite button up shirts to a T-shirt to a simple summer dress. It would go with everything!

    (I also signed up!)

  7. Adorable! I’ve always been fascinated by pyrite and don’t recall ever seeing it used in jewelry. What a unique necklace.

  8. Simply stunning. The softness of the wood in combination with the jagged of the rock. I’m in love with this piece. *fingers and toes crossed for luck*

  9. hello, hello, what a great necklace!
    that very special connection of wood and stone is the final product i was looking for.
    May it give us the magical power for our next all-girl band concert- and the first gig out of town in Dresden/GER in november. This is VIVIAN VOID, with greetings from germany:)
    yours sarah

  10. honestly, this is my all time favorite blog, you’re doing a great job!

  22. I’ve been getting the Of a Kind newsletters for a few weeks now. I’m in love with the concept and many of the unique items they sell. Not sure how I missed this necklace!

  23. oh my!

    a necklace that combines a geometric wooden shape AND stunning pyrite?

    this would be such a treat to add to my fall wardrobe. I’m quite sure I would make the entire university campus jealous!

    Stunning.

  24. this is incredible! i’m even already a follower of their newsletter, they have the most incredible things. fingers crossed!

  25. This necklace reminds me of the rock collection I had when I was a little girl! And the periodic table of the elements at Griffith Observatory! And… somehow… Superman.

  26. wOw! Wonderful necklace! Once I found a pyrite in deep sea, in Tuscany.
    I really love your blog.
    Greetings from italy!

  27. I would love love LOVE to win. Pyrite is so my jam.
    Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway, and for routinely finding the best stuff online.

  28. This necklace is exactly the kind of gem I imagine coming across on my thrifting adventures. It is sharp and elegant but will always be reminiscent of a yester-year.

  29. truly magnificent, utterly gorgeous. it combines so many aspects of love. I havn’t seen anything as lovely in many a year. I dream of it dangling around my neck.

  30. Kat Shannon says

    This is so precious! And thanks for spreading one of a kind, really wonderful website!

  31. Bonjour!
    I’m on a shopping diet. This necklace will keep me going through the dark days ahead.

  32. I’m a poor grad student & TA, I gotta have it. So gorgeous. It will help intimidate/impress my students.

  33. What I love about this necklace is that it takes what to me (as an ex-jeweller) is a metal that equally fascinates and repels me and make it into something modern, sexy and well considered. And (even more rare) something I would actually love to wear.

  34. I never win anything so I don’t have high hopes but I have to enter anyway…that necklace is STUNNING and just my style! I already subscribe to the newsletter. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  35. So beautiful and unique! Even if I don’t win, how lovely to have found out about their beautiful work!

  36. this would definitely replace my current favorite necklace (a crocheted piece of rose quartz from catbird). right up my alley.

  37. What an ideal piece of jewelry – unfussy yet so stunning. I’m putting myself on a shopping freeze, so this would be a nice treat!

  38. I totally can wear the necklace with my new bought dress…..even the jeans I got from my mommy!

  39. I love it! Signed up for the newsletter and am eagerly awaiting the email which says I win (fingers and even toes crossed!) – :)

  40. Would love to win this necklace, it is gorgeous. I love wood in jewelry, so perfect for fall.

  41. Stunning Necklace!
    I’m always looking for new things to wear (more importantly) or bring into my classroom (Okay-this should be more important) to inspire my students creativity! This would do the trick for sure!

  42. I love it! I’m imagining all the outfits I could wear this with and so far the isn’t one I couldn’t wear it with:)

  43. I stumbled upon your blog this (Canadian) spring, and it’s been a source of inspiration and escape ever since. I may not get the necklace, but I hope you read this :-)

  49. Hello! Thanks for this awesome giveaway!!

    I was reading your “high School Fashion 1969″ post and happened to see this giveaway contest!
    Thanks for sharing with us this beautiful necklace.

    Greeting from Malaysia. :)

  50. I used to collect a fortnightly magazine about minerals and gemstones. Each issue came with a different precious/semiprecious item. With the first issue I got a chunk of pyrite.

    I remember I wanted to make a ring out of the pyrite. I was around 11 or 12 years old at the time. I found a piece of piping about the right diameter of a ring and I hammered into a block of wood to make a cast. Unfortunately I couldn’t manage to melt the pyrite with the soldering iron we had in the garage.

  51. I love the idea of putting the beautiful pyrite on the bottom. It almost looks like the pyramid has roots made of gold. I adore it!

  52. ooeee, ik zou graag een cadeautje zo mooi eigen!
    *thanx for your wonderful blog, it lights up my day*

  53. Seems that my competition is pretty stiff for the Of A Kind beaut ,but I have a sneaky suspicion that it will feel at home around my neck. Besides I will take care of my pyrite + shedua wood pyramid necklace as if its my little wee one.

  54. I’ve always been a gemstone nut and seeing pyrite actually used in an innovative way is too flipping fantatic! Life would be indeed be made if I won that pretty x

  55. I know someone who would love this piece around her neck, in her bag (with the chain all tangled up) and sometimes hanging on the hook behind her door.

    *holding thumbs*

  56. clairewalshie says

    OK I subscribed and leaving a comment, all ready to win a pretty necklace… fingers crossed

  57. What simplicity, yet detailed at the same time!! The prettiest piece of jewelry I have seen in a long time x

  58. Thank you for such a great giveaway!

    Another beautiful piece from Of a Kind, I have been saving for a purchase since the post on the Votan necklace :)

    Cheers, good luck to everyone!

  59. How funny, my heart wears a smaller version of this necklace, ohhh I love it so! That aside however, this is a seriously fantastic piece.

  60. Beautiful necklace! My luck is never with me when it comes to give aways or raffles, but ill tell you this if by some magical reason (Hey Mr. Einstein said something like… if you didn’t believe in any kind of magic you’re as good as dead!) I was given the chance to specifically choose a give away or raffle to win up to this point in my life… I’d prob. go for this one ;)
    Thx for the post and for keeping up an amazing blog!

    Bonne chance to all!

  61. Gorgeous necklace, and what’s more exciting than a giveaway?! Love the idea! Fool’s Gold was one of my favorites as a child….my brothers and I would bury it in the garden and the search for it like pirates! Lovely memories.

  62. This necklace is so pretty I almost can’t stand it! What a gorgeous concept/execution. New fan for life!

  63. What an incredible idea for a shop. Love it.

    PS I’ve been listening to “Somebody I Used to Know” from your August mix quite a bit lately, and wow, my favorite.

  64. wow.. soo many comments already. this necklace is truly outstanding and what pulled me in to find and read this post and check out the website.. it would be one that’s worth to replace the jewellery I had stolen on my holidays…

  65. so beautiful!you don’t find jewellery like that in Germany,it’s a shame…(means that i’m from G.,by the way ;) )

  66. This necklace is speaking both to me and my unborn baby. The season is changing and I’m newly pregnant and unable to go mad on ANY new clothing. Jewelry and shoes it must be and this is a very special thing that would perfectly accessorise a very special (if not frustrating) time in my life…

  67. Emily Elizabeth says

    Beautiful necklace! And thank you for the heads up about the site, I hadn’t heard of it before and am glad to be on the email list.

  68. Of a Kind is awesome. So far I’ve only enjoyed their editions as eye candy, though, so we’ll see how this goes…

  69. oh, sure. i guess i’ll try to win this. i mean, it’s okay. (<– SARCASM! i love it — errr…. the necklace… not sarcasm. although i kinda love sarcasm, too.)

  70. Rebecca Yao says

    hi, I pretty love your blog.I can not stop to read it every day . I live in China,not good English:)
    the beautyful necklace,I do not want miss it, pls pike me,please…

  71. Pretty and sharp! This necklace is lovely, and thanks for pointing me toward Of A Kind. Stellerest!

  72. This necklace embodies exactly what I’ve always wanted to hang from my neck. A piece that is unique and a conversation starter, yet subtle with the calming wood. It kind of reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture and I admire it greatly. I know this is to win a contest but I must say I admire your style and blog greatly and am overjoyed to have stumbled upon it.

  73. This necklace is GORGEOUS. I think it would be a great addition to any fall wardrobe. Here’s hoping I’ll win. Thanks, lovely!

  74. just lovely, hope I’m not too late to be in the running for this sweet ass one of a kind necklace, love it!

  75. It’s so difficult for me to find jewelry that I like. I can see my wardrobe and this necklace getting along really well. Would it help my chances to do the cliche, “I never win anything ever” moment? It’s true though. Pick me please, please please.

  76. jeeez what a response you have had already! Slim chances I will win this beauty. One can only dream. x

  77. What a gorgeous piece and cheers for the introduction to Of a Kind, I think I’ll be spending a lot of time (and cash) there.

    Thanks so much!!!

  115. I love all kinds of pyramids. The Eygpt ones, human-pyramids, and now of course, One Of A Kind’s pyramid. That’s three I like so far, and 3 is the number of points on a triangle… which is a 2D pyramid… oh dear.
