Giveaway: Smart Mudflap Girl Necklace

November 13, 2013 – ETA – In usual form, I’m late picking the winners. But here’s the random sequence for comments 1 through 34: 

necklace winners


Heather S. and nomadreader were the winners! Congratulations! An email has been sent to each of you. 


A little over two years ago, I found an Etsy seller, MarKhed Design, who made silhouette necklaces out of sterling silver (check out her designs here since she’s on maternity leave). I loved them and wanted all of her designs, but I couldn’t afford all of her designs, unfortunately. Then I had the awesome idea of seeing if she could make a necklace of the smart mudflap girl — you know, the one you see on the back of cars?


And she nailed it. The necklace looks fantastic! In a moment of pure insanity genius, I ordered three — one for me and two to give away. And then I promptly procrastinated on hosting the giveaway, and here they are, two years later, waiting to be worn around someone’s neck.

So here we go.

I’ve got two necklaces to give away. They both look like this:


It’s the smart mudflap girl on an 18″ silver chain. The girl is approximately .75″ tall and 1.25″ wide. The silhouette originally had a loop in the head (as you can see in the picture) and on the extended foot, but it seemed to hang weird that way, so I changed them so the chain only hangs from the head. That’s why there’s a hole in her foot.

I’ll ship these to two different folks, anywhere in the world. Just leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway, and I’ll close the giveaway at 11:59pm on Tuesday, November 5, 2013.

If you don’t win, MarKhed Designs said they’d make this same design for anyone who wants it. Of course, that was two years ago, but I’m sure she’ll still do it, though her prices may have gone up some. Just make sure you have Etsy email you when she returns to business so you can get in touch with her.
