EC One is an independent jewellery retailer with a shop in Notting Hill and one on Exmouth Market, which is just a stone’s throw from my home, so I often pop by to take a look on my daily coffee run. Over the past year, I’ve developed a great relationship with EC One and the amazing people at Push PR, whose offices are just above the shop, so of course they were one of the first I contacted about maybe doing something for my blog’s birthday.
What EC One offered goes above and beyond anything I could possibly have hoped for. See, EC One doesn’t only sell jewellery by independent designers, but also has its own range made by fully qualified goldsmiths in their own workshop at the back of the Exmouth Market store. They kindly invited me last week to come see how they made a necklace from scratch, which I then got to take home.
The process of seeing a little template turned into a gorgeous gold necklace by the lovely Kate, was quite a unique experience, which I hope you can tell by the many, many pictures!
I have one of these Initial Necklaces to give away. And no, you won’t have to have an “A” to be just like me. Unless that’s your thing. Yep, EC One will make you a necklace with your initial or number of choice in either silver or goldplated. I’m obsessed with mine, so I’m sure you’ll love it too – or it would make a great gift for a girlfriend/wife/mum/sister.
I’m going to be running a bunch of different competitions this week, so I’ll try to mix up the formats a little all week. Today, you’ll have to do some research…. :)
Here’s how you can win:
1. Answer the following question in an email to email@example.com:
Who won EC One’s first Unsigned competition a few weeks ago?
2. “Like” Alex Loves and EC One on Facebook
3. Competition closes this Wednesday, Dec 1st at 4pm GMT, after which I will choose a winner from the right answers at random. I will contact the winner for their details and choice of necklace.
As if this isn’t enough, EC One have also offered my readers an amazing 15% OFF EVERYTHING for the next 2 weeks. That’s your christmas shopping sorted out then…!
So have 15% off at EC One on me, from today until Dec 12th. Just type in ALEXDEC at check out…
Now don’t tell me I never gave you anything…
If you didn’t win the necklace, or you’re still stuck for xmas gift ideas, have a look at some the other gorgeous stuff I found in store! I fell in love with all of these Jana Reinhardt birds… Quirky, unique and really not expensive at all (especially with the 15% off code)! Win – win.
Thanks to everyone at EC One and Push PR for the experience and the great gift.
