Women's Bean Project Full Circle Necklace Sponsor Spotlight Review

Well, what do you think of this awesome piece of jewelry that the Women's Bean Project has made? It is called the Full Circle Necklace and I was honored to get it. I did not even know it was coming actually.

One day I the mail came and inside the box were 2 of these necklaces, one for a review and one for a giveaway. I immediately thought of You Look Marvelous Beauty Giveaway Blog Hop because I think anyone can wear this and look what else they did with it. The Event starts on November 5th and ends on the 25th. Open to the U.S. only. Good Luck Everyone!

Now, I did not even think of this when I was looking at the necklaces. This is the first time I went on their site to see what they had to say about it and was shocked that it could be worn as a belt! Gosh, I bet it won't fit around my waist! Good Lord! I mean it is long but still, that might be stretching it a little. 
Ever since my IBS diagnosis, I don't wear any type of binding clothing and definitely not belts. My doctors told me to stay away from tight clothing because I also have GERD so it really would not help me one bit to have any clothes on that I feel uncomfortable in. Besides, it is really a beautiful necklace and I think I actually have a bracelet that I won last year on a magazine that has that same color of crystals! It just dawned on me to go look later when hubby gets up!
I hope this gives you a better angle of the full scope of the necklace. I went ahead and grabbed the Women's Bean Project Necklace at the last minute and added it to this giveaway because I realized I had a little bit of everything except some bling!
I mean, think about it, I took care of your hair, eyelashes, lips, perfume, body scrub, so now you need some serious bling! If this doesn't make you or someone special you are winning this for feel special and marvelous then I just don't know what else to do! I wanted to give each of my events some really great products and I really had a thought process to make sure they were all evenly applied so that whoever the winners are of all of these packages, I hope I have brought some joy to someone somewhere!
As you know, they are very famous for their cornbread and bean soup mixes. I loved them so much last year that I placed an order for a good bit of cornbread mixes and soup mixes and then gave a few out on my blog and then took a set to my aunt's house this past summer. They love the stuff also!
If you ever get the chance to win or order both of these, you will be in for a very special treat! Even my husband loved the soup and he really isn't a vggie type soup person, he really did like this soup that I made one day. I think I have one bag of soup left and one cornbread and I think I need to make that this coming week now that the air has turned a little chilly.
They have other kinds of soup mixes besides the Toni's 10 Bean Soup Mix, along with other kinds of dips, desserts, cookies, brownies, salsas, dip mixes, sweets, spice rubs, teas in bags and instant, coffee and fajita marinades! Wow, that was a mouthful to say and write! Look at those brownies!!!
Here is what I found out about the Women's Bean Project in their About Us section:
Jossy Eyre founded the Women's Bean Project in 1989 as a result of her volunteer work at a day shelter for homeless women. Eyre saw that while the shelter kept women safe, if could not help them make lasting changes in their lives.  
Eyre bought $500 worth of beans and put two homeless women to work - the first step in building the social enterprise we are today. Our training opportunities have expanded dramatically over the years, and annual operating budget has grown from $6,100 to over $1.5 million. 
In 1993, King Soopers became the first grocery store to carry our products. In 1995, we purchased former Fire Station #10 from the City and County of Denver, and moved to our new home the following year, giving us permanent roots at 3201 Curtis Street. 
Today our product offerings have expanded to salsa mixes, spice rubs, coffee beans, and jelly beans in addition to our soups and chili, along with gift baskets, baking mixes and much more. 
The women hired at the Bean Project have histories of poverty and unemployment; they lack hope and self-confidence; most do not have a GED or high school diploma; most are single mothers and have been on public assistance; many are recovering from experiences with substance abuse and incarceration. 
Women find the Bean Project many different ways, but most often are referred by graduates and current program participants. Parole officers, shelters and other service agencies all refer women to the Bean Project. 
Connect with the Women's Bean Project by several ways:
