Well, it’s half way through the month, and we’ve got some great entries in the Facebook competition, but unfortunately there’s been no voting. After reviewing the competition format, I now realise that it’s way over complicated to try to get people voting. I only wish Facebook had some easier ways to implement competition ideas. I’m sure they will eventually, I hope!
In the meantime, I’m going to continue the competition based on the stories that people post, and I’ll be the judge of the best story/comment myself. I kinda like the idea of being a judge anyway!
I’d love to see more stories/comments from people. If you know other Celtic jewelry lovers, why not share the page with them and they can enter the competition too.
Remember, there’s a FREE silver Celtic jewelry piece of your choice for the winner.
As I said above, there’s some great stories in there already. I wanted to post one here to whet your appetite. Here’s a wonderful story by Susan Reardon Clennan about the Tara’s Diary bracelet:
I love the Tara’s Diary bracelet. I purchased one as soon as it was available from Irish Celtic Jewels. I have had great fun collecting different charms; each one symobolizes something in my life. This particular charm with the dangling Claddagh brings me back to memories of my Mother who adored all things Irish. Her parents originally came from Ireland and she grew up listening to the stories and folklore they told her. My Mom passed these stories down to us,her children. We loved the story of the Claddagh, the symbolism behind it. I can’t help but smile when I look at my Tara bracelet and catch sight of the Claddagh charm, it bring great memories of my Mom sitting at the kitchen table telling us stories of Ireland. Though she is no longer here with us, her words live on in our hearts and minds. It’s a wonderful thing to have something like this charm to set off memories from long ago. And the Claddagh symbolizes every thing you wish for the people in your life.
