Yum Yum Pendants Review and Giveaway...


Thanks to Ela Steel and Yum Yum Pendants, I recently got the treat to review this gorgeous Scrabble tile pendant:
This Scrabble Pendant is from an upcycled wooden game piece. The image has been permanently adhered to the wood and covered with a thick, glass-like finish. A simple silver-plated bail completes the look

About Ela and Yum Yum Pendants:
"Ela Steel was born in Ontario, Canada where in 2005 she graduated from the Fine Arts program at Georgian College’s School of Design and Visual Art in Barrie, Ontario. Since then she has lived as an expat artist and accidental jewelry maker in Texas with her husband, dog and two cats.
Her interest in jewelry making initially sprung from the desire to bring her offbeat artwork to a larger audience via glass tile jewelry. From there she expanded to making bracelets, rings, earrings and eventually scrabble tile pendants- which is when the YumYumPendants brand was born.
Ela prides herself on offering top quality handmade products and unique designs at affordable prices."

You can see more of Ela's artwork in her Etsy shop or on her website.

These are just a few of my favorites:
White Blossoms on Red

Pink Tulips on Chocolate Brown

Orange and Teal Hibiscus on Chocolate

Ice Blue Bird on Wire
Personalized
What we thought: I am completely in love with my pendant:) It is gorgeous and every time I've worn(which is a lot:) I've gotten compliments on it. And it stood up quite well to the toddler test. I can't usually wear necklaces without constantly being accosted by my 20 month old, but this necklace is very durable and he's getting used to the idea of me wearing it now:) The variety at Yum Yum Pendants is simply astounding and every piece is absolutely gorgeous. You'd be hard-pressed not to find something you loved:) ABCD Diaries gives Yum Yum Pendants an A+!!
Buy It: You can find Scrabble jewelery for every occasion on Ela's website, Yum Yum Pendants.
Win It: Ela has generously offered one ABCD Diaries reader their very own scrabble pendant of the winner's choice plus an 18" ball chain. To enter, check out Yum Yum Pendants and leave a comment below with a pendant you'd love to own.
