Contrary Jewelry Giveaway: Vintage Gun Pocket Knife Necklace


***Update: This giveaway has ended, find the lucky winner at the bottom of the post. Stay tuned for future giveaways right here at 17 Apart! *** 

Just cause we love ya, we're giving away one of these awesome vintage gun pocket knife necklaces from my jewelry line to a lucky reader!

A few months back, I came across a vintage dead-stock collection of these little gun shaped pocket knives with brightly colored Bakelite handles and knowing they'd be amazing re-purposed into necklaces, I scooped up the entire lot of them. Since then, they've been disappearing like hotcakes from my jewelry shop to people all over the world — so we thought it would be fun to give one away here on the blog.

Because they've been so popular, the full line of colors pictured above isn't available, but whoever the lucky winner is in the end will get to choose from any remaining colors they like.

  1. Oh I'd love the light blue vintage pocket knife necklace. And also after visiting your shop, I'm going to convince the husband to get me the monocle necklace for our anniversary!
    (Also, I'm a follower, my husband sent me your blog when we moved in to our older house (also in Richmond - but on the northside!) such great ideas! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I love the octopus necklace. Octopi are amazing!

    If I had to choose the colour of gun/pocket knife, I would go with white; then it would match any ensemble I choose to wear.

    (I already follow you on my google reader)

  3. My favourite colour would be either the yellow handle (or maybe the orange handle) although the antique key necklaces are pretty cool too!
