Cocotay Necklace Giveaway

This winter, I had the pleasure of meeting a fabulous jewelry designer, Coco Blaisdell and I got my hands on her fabulous Cocotay jewelry. She's a true entrepreneur and I love, adore, (did I mention love) supporting women who create beauty and listen to their hearts. Cocotay offers different lines and many incorporate vintage pieces--like old chandelier--which is cool AND green. (And if that weren't enough, Cocotay is everywhere... Sarah Jessica Parker is wearing Cocotay in Sex and the City 2!! Martina McBride wore Cocotay to the VH1 Divas! Both Joy Behar and Elizabeth Hasselbeck have worn Cocotay on The View.)

(Please excuse the quality of the photos below. I just fired my lighting crew, my makeup artist and photographer, so *sigh* I took all these photos on my own.)

This is my first Cocotay necklace...

I wear it all the time. I have so many necklaces but this one keeps getting repeat wears.

And I just got a pair of Cocotay earrings...
love them.

And now, I get to share her one of her fabulous baubles with one of you!
One MusingsdeMommy reader will win a Cocotay Survivorship Necklace.

(In collaboration with the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Cocotay developed the necklace to lovingly honor all those touched by cancer. As much as 50% of the proceeds go directly to the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Read more at
