Geeky necklace GIVEAWAY!

Introducing an entirely new product line for my Etsy shop: geeky jewelry!  Because Raising Little Dragonslayers isn't just about raising geeky kids--it's just as much about being a geeky parent!  And what geeky mom wouldn't want to celebrate her fandoms with jewelry?

I'm especially excited to announce that I've decided to kick things off with a GIVEAWAY....who doesn't love free stuff? :-)

You'll need to enter the giveaway on Facebook, on the Raising Little Dragonslayers Facebook page--all you have to do is:

  1. SHARE the image on your own wall, and
  2. COMMENT on the original on the Raising Little Dragonslayers page to let me know you shared it!

If you're interested in following me there for updates on my Etsy shop and products, please "like" the page, but you don't need to in order to enter--I won't clutter up your feed if all you're interested in is the giveaway! :-)

You must be able to provide a U.S. mailing address in order to win (if you're out of the country, I don't mind mailing it to a friend in the states).  You must share and comment by 11:59 pm EST, Sept. 22 to be entered.  You are welcome to comment more than once, if you'd like to tag friends or tell me your favorite pieces, but each individual will only be entered once regardless of the number of posts.  A winner will be randomly selected on Sept. 23 and contacted by the end of the day, and will have 72 hours to respond with their choice and mailing address, or a new winner will be selected.

And now, to present your options:

"Doctor Who" Modern Doctors collection: Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh.

Let's start with the "Doctor Who" Modern Doctors collection!  Each necklace features a pendant with the Doctor's catchphrase and the TARDIS, and a charm unique to that Doctor's regeneration: a wolf for Nine's "Bad Wolf", a rose for Ten's Rose, and a bowtie for Eleven.

"Sherlock" and "Harry Potter".

Next up, two more British fandoms: an "I AM SHERLOCKED" pendant for BBC's "Sherlock", and a pendant with the Harry Potter spells "Lumos"/"Nox".

"Firefly"/"Serenity": Sky, Misbehave, and Shiny.

From the "Firefly"/Serenity 'verse, a pendant with the text "You can't take the sky from me" over the silhouette of our beloved Firefly, a Mal-inspired "I aim to misbehave" pendant with the Browncoat symbol and a pistol charm, and a Kaylee-inspired "Shiny" pendant with a strawberry charm.  (The Misbehave and Shiny necklaces will be available soon in my Etsy shop with the option of purchasing coordinating pistol or strawberry earrings.)

"Battlestar Galactica": Apollo, Athena, Helo, Starbuck, and Boomer.

Next, five characters commemorated from "Battlestar Galactica": Apollo, Athena, Helo, Starbuck, and Boomer.  Each pendant has the text "Battlestar Galactica" at the top, the character's rank and name at the bottom, and their call sign in the center, and features a silhouette of the type of ship they piloted (Viper or Raptor).

"Lord of the Rings" map pendants.

Finally, the Lord of the Rings pendants each feature a vintage-style map of a prominent area of Middle-Earth: the Shire, Rohan, Gondor, and Mordor.

Each image is approximately one inch tall, to give you an idea of the size of each pendant, and is sealed under domed resin.  Necklaces come on matching (silver or antique bronze) 18" chains.

The giveaway winner may pick any one of the designs pictured above.  I have duplicates of the "Doctor Who", "Firefly", "Sherlock", and Harry Potter designs, so those will be listed in my Etsy shop later this week, but I have only one each of the "Battlestar Galactica" and Lord of the Rings designs, so those will be withheld until after the winner has made their selection.

Thanks for your interest!  I'd love to hear: Which is your favorite?


  1. Pretty please, may we have a Doctor/River "Hello, Sweetie" option, perhaps with back-to-back silhouettes? Because I don't have enough choices to drool over already. Thanks!

  2. The Dr Who ones are my favorite! I'd share with my daughter! FB fan JR Reynolds

  3. Thanks, guys! I definitely hope to be able to offer more "Doctor Who" designs in the future--I have a few ideas for some of my favorite villains and companions! :-)
