Yum Yum Pendants: Review and Giveaway

I love jewelry and am always on the lookout for fun, and economical, pieces to add to my collection.

Recently I saw Yum Yum Pendants reviewed on another blog, and immediately loved what I saw. When I had the opportunity to review these adorable and affordable pendants for myself, I jumped at the chance! 





About 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 unsual artwork on ElaSteel.com
About Scrabble Tile Pendants:
Look your best and have fun in our Scrabble Tile Pendants. When you wear our scrabble jewelry you will have fun mixing and matching our tiles to suit your individual style. Be prepared to fend off all of your newfound admirers!

You will stay looking you best because all scrabble necklaces are sealed with a thick, glass-like finish. You can find your own style when you choose from hundreds of designs. Or you can get a scrabble pendant made from your own custom image.
My Review:
I love my Yum Yum Pendant. When I was told I could have my choice of pendant, I was excited, but overwhelmed by the choices that Ela had in designs. It was, and is, amazing! This is the Yum Yum Pendant that I ultimately choose:


  Isn't is adorable! I love the lime green, purple and pinks together! So whimsical, and feminine! I received my pendant in a lovely drawstring bag and 18" Sterling Silver Ball Chain. Priced at only $6.95 for the pendant and $15 for the chain, Yum Yum Pendants would be a super gift for any women, for any special occasion! 

  As far as product care is concerned, due to the pendant being a wood product, it is only water resistent. It is recommended to remove before bathing or swimming. As well, these pendants can pose a choking hazard to young children. 


   Shipping was very quick and the customer service I have received thus far has been fabulous!


I highly recommend Yum Yum Pendants and give them a huge thumbs up!
