A few weeks ago I won this lovely pendent during the design a pendent contest held by Trudie Davies Designs. The pendent is crafted from sterling silver and features designs that are stamped by hand into the metal. This pendent was personalized with the statement “Dare to Dream” surrounded by cute flower designs on the front and back of the pendent.

My personal Opinion:
Trudie's pendent has become one of my favorites. This pendent looks well with both casual and formal outfits, and the inspirational message on the pendent is of personal significance. “Dare to Dream” is a statement that has many meanings for me. It inspires me to think outside of the box, to dream of who I truly want to be, and to become that person. It also encourages me to dream of a better world, one in which my dreams are a reality. And finally this simple statement reminds me of my Daddy's last piece of advise- don't be afraid to live outside the box, be eccentric, and live life to its fullest. He was truly a master of this, one of the qualities which made him so much fun to be around. Where others would find reasons to be discouraged in life, he would find reasons to enjoy life. There are always rays of light amongst the darkness. He saw the opportunity to uplift others, while at the same time working to change things for the better.
