Bittersweet Giveaway...

Thursday, October 1, 2009



So thrilled that October is finally here, there seems to be a lot in the crispy air. And to help commemorate one of my best loved months I’m pleased to present to you, just in case you’re not already acquainted, the gorgeous creations of Bittersweets NY







About Bittersweets NY and the genius designer and creator Robin Adams:

Created in 2002 by a girl who used to work at a foundry, welding and finishing art for famous people and housewives. In order to pay expensive NY rents she found a warehouse in Long Island City where she could live cheaply and still bike to work. The ground floor was home to several night clubs that switched from topless, to full nudity, to salsa, on a rotating basis. After 2 1/5 years living there-to avoid comparisons to Flashdance and a coked up neighbor, she moved from her spacious 1200 square foot studio, gave up sculpting and her foundry job, and started making jewelry in her new tiny apartment. The idea behind Bittersweets NY is making something exquisite out of the everyday objects and designs that are taken for granted. Why reinvent the wheel? The first project, Bloodlust Princess, was a matching necklace, belt buckle, tiara and mini ashtray set based on the design of the dollar store Vampire Teeth available once a year for Halloween. Of the four items from the original set, the Classic Vamp Necklace, now cast in solid sterling silver, is still in production. The sterling silver Heart n Dagger was inspired by true love, of course. And the Maggot and Earthworm series stay within the ideology of borrowing a design from another tried and true source...nature.





Are you as enamored with Bittersweets NY as I am? Do you have your eye on a Baby Vamp Ring or a Big Boy Vamp Ring now? Well, do I have amazing news for you… Robin, the aforementioned genius behind Bittersweets NY has very generously agreed to sponsor a giveaway of one of her Vamp rings in silver (either a Baby or a Big Boy, winners choice!)… and the contest is open to everyone!!

I WAS gonna leave my e-mail here so I'm entered, but now that I've seen her FREAKIN AWESOME site, I have to post on it. SO- I'm working on the post now, and I'll give u a heads up when I'm done!
The evil eye ring and heart and dagger necklace, rapunzel necklace, and dagger charm are SO amazing!!!!!!!!! I want to put a piece of the jewelry on a character in my WIP book-It's inspiring work-Maybe I'll put a few lines from the book in my post-I think it would add so much this one character I've written! :)
Here's my e-mail either way tho! I FOR SURE want to be entered!!

Such a cool giveaway, Gabbi! I was blown away while looking at all the insanely creative pieces at Bittersweets NY. Wow. The Feather Bracelet and Feather Ring both caught my eye, as did the Silver Creature Ring. :)

Sam said...

Wowsers Gabbi dearest!! I covert everything here and on her very snappy looking website - very tricky to choose actually!!! I love the Lily ring - can I choose that even though it's pictured here? If not, I'll go for the Evil Eye Ring. Either would be heavenly!!!

Have a lovely, lovely weekend and say hello to that handsome chap of yours!! (Button up this weekend fingers crossed!! Such almighty dramas avec le internet and my blog account I can't tell you!!) XXXX

billie said...

Wow! What an original work this is,
it shows such personality!
My favorite would definitely be the feather bracelet.

Anonymous said...

I love the charm bracelet and all the little charms that go with it. Truly charming!! But best of all I like the maggots, wriggling about. They look very real, but so much sweeter than the real thing! I think these might really be lucky! I haven't seen any of these lovely things in UK yet - but maybe I haven't been in the right shops? ruth.hope@btinternet.com.

Hi Gabbi,

First off as always love ur blog. Always so cute and tons of interesting things. I love your give-away from Bittersweet. Im not too much into jewerly but always love something that is so different. This line is just that, I especially love the Black creature ring. Girlie yet has a twist on the band that makes it a bit animal like. Thanks for all the time you put into you blog.

Meghan said...

Oh goodness!
What dont I like... hah!
I would say my favorites are the earthworm series. The ring and bracelet are both pretty amazing. I hate real worms, but I have always like looking at them. I am like that with spiders too... I hate HATE them, but love spider jewelry. I am also in love with the teensy rings with colored diamonds. They are delicate and perfect!
Amazing give away!

i like the ring, i need one urgently

Julia said...

I have been in love with bittersweets since I first laid eyes on my friends baby vamp ring back in high school! It was a gift though, so neither of us knew where we could pick up more of these goodies. I absolutely love the heart heart charm, the classic vamp pieces, the earthworm ring, and the delicate victorian-ish initial rings. I'm saving up to start my collection-I'm sad they don't have a store anymore, from the pictures it look gorgeous...
