Gone Style: This Charming Necklace (Giveaway)

About a week ago, a lovely reader named Anna sent me this:
I'd always wanted a personalized-with-my-kid's-names-necklace but for whatever reason had never ordered myself one - always overwhelmed by the options that were out there. Of course, now that I have one, (she customized the three-fer for my two-fer) I refuse to take it off. The kids love to see their names around my neck and I feel like I have them with me when we're separated during the day.
So, thank you Anna! And thank you (also!) for offering one of my readers a personalized charm necklace of their own. To win? Just tell me the names you would have engraved on your necklace. Your children's names? Your parents? The boy you met that one summer in Paris that you're still totally psycho for! you can't get out of your mind? I'll pick one winner at random (via random.org) to announce here next Wednesday. Please include your contact information in your comment so I can find you. Best of luck!

For more on Anna's personalized jewelry, go here. I especially love this one and this. (And these personalized guitar picks are a great call for gifting.) Best of luck, charming yous!
