CONTEST: Win a 'Good Art Hlywd' Sterling Silver Skull Pendant

This contest has ended.  Thanks to everyone for all of the great comments and supporting Good Art Hlywd's killer work.


The road to success contains many intersections. Imagine yourself at the intersection of hard work and dedication. On that corner is a jewelry shop that houses it's own foundry and the capability to make magnificent works of metallic ornaments to adorn your body with. On the outside of that building is a sign that reads "Good Art Hlywd". The time for you to own a piece of 'Grade A' L.A. style is here, and the time to enter is now.












Josh Warner is the most gracious owner of Good Art Hlywd and he is here to dazzle us with the most illustrious of giveaways. Each of the pendants above (including a second one of the first image), along with the some  of the goodies shown in the bottom image, will go to a different lucky reader drawn at random! That's right! There will be 5 winners! The five winners will each receive one of the items, but no guarantee will be made as to which one.

Josh's crew of amazing metal smiths cast these creations in sterling silver and they're as solid as they look. Luxury is the name of the game when it comes to owning quality like this. The hard working, American made spirit that goes into making each piece is accentuated by Josh's own outlook on the art and aesthetic.

"The necessity of a two thousand dollar lighter is an absurd question; the pure joy of its luxury is however an experience to relish. The degree to which an object can communicate or evoke a state of mind is a mark of its magnitude. I believe art is communication, and art has the ability to effect how you feel. As a work of art can uplift the spirit, so too can an everyday object bring joy well beyond its function. And if it does, it may well be art." -taken from the GAH website

Take advantage of this opportunity to feel the same way for the mere cost of a moment's time. To be entered in this contest leave a comment stating your skull's idea of luxury. Mine would love to own a motorcycle so expensive I'd be afraid to ride it, but what the heck, you only live once. (If you also don't want to crash your bike then simply say what you would buy your skull if you could give it anything.)


[NOTE: If you're reading this on Facebook or Google+ then be sure to leave your comment on the original Skull-A-Day.com post if you want to be officially entered in the contest.]


IMPORTANT: Don't forget to include a way of contacting you(either an email in the post OR be sure your blogger profile has a working email link for you). Entries are only valid with this information.


You have until Midnight Eastern time Friday, February 24th to enter so don't wait... do it now.

Note: Due to international shipping costs this contest is limited to winners in the US and Canada only.  Apologies go out to everyone else.

Of course you don't have to wait until the end of the contest to get your own pendant, ring, or chain. The Good Art Hlywd website is always open to bring you a chance to spoil yourself with "Genuine American Luxury". Thanks, Josh & Rachel!

My idea of sheer luxury would be one room dedicated to nothing but every cd I've ever collected. I know they're an outdated medium, but that's my preferred method of listening to music. Some people put books in their library, I put compact discs.

Barb said...

Wonderful giveaway! My skull dreams of a larger house that comes with a cleaning demon :)

rnjenny1 said...

My skulls luxury would be to not have to work again, to lay around all day making art and snarfing bon-bons.

Camel said...

When i walk down the street, listening to music & dreaming.
I look at apartment buildings & schools. Well that is not luxurious you may say.

Imagine taking the whole top floor & making it your own. An art room, a shop, a mammoth kitchen, a glorious tattoo space, a movie theater, my 13 yo's room on the opposite side.

but then why not make the whole thing your personal space?
Because the rest of the space will make money, rented to artists & friends at low cost just to pay the bills.

Now that is luxury.

Pre-death: my skull would like a full-on leather catsuit covered in zipper pockets for my sweet spy gadgets. Post-death: my skull would like to be covered in diamonds and carried around on a black velvet cushion by an attractive man.

My skulls idea of luxury would be having a nice little house with all the eco-friendly, tech-savy extras you can think of... and no worries about bills and crap :)

flyingbeader said...

My skull's idea of luxury would be nestled between the mounds of my breast as I stand on the balcony in luxurious rented home on Kauai. The winds off the Pacific are blowing in the salt spray from the rocks below covering my skull with a fine salty spray. We both look out at the azure blue sky blending into the ocean as dolphins jump from one wave to another. I pick up my glass of wine and as I take a sip a small drop falls onto the hungry skull waiting for me to wake up and take it out onto the sandy beach where we will wait for another golden Sun set.

Luxury would be having all your time to yourself with no no obligation to sell yourself to work... (and all the time to dedicate to work you want to be doing!)

My skull's idea of luxury would be to live on after my death as either a chromed hood ornament on a late 60s early 70s MOPAR SS (my skull is open to several options within these parameters but requires big block luxury and a fast driver) OR to be crafted into the most bedazzlingly luxurious candy dish ever (you know you want a piece).

tvirtue said...

My ultimate skull luxury would be owning a home with enough wall space and cabinets to display my ever growing collection of all things skull related, thick velvet red drapes, candles, incense burning, lava lamps and a place that once you step foot inside....you are in a state of complete and utter relaxation and inspired like you've never been before! I've created a much smaller version of this in the Valley and would certainly treasure the Good Art Hlywd sterline silver skull pendant. And if beggers can be choosers.....I want the very first one listed on this page! ;-)~

Scott said...

Contest or no, I just may have to purchase some of GAH's fine goods. There are a few items that would make a special lady in my life very happy.

Holly said...

My skull's idea of a luxury would be to journey into the underworld to find my deceased friend; where I would sit and decay with her for awhile, and we would reminisce about all the joys we shared, and those that I took for granted. I would apologize to her, tell her how much she meant to me, and have my chance to give her a proper goodbye.
Not exactly a luxury to some, but a luxury to me.

I too would by a motorcycle. A nice old school bobber with pipes so loud they set off car alarms and scare small children. Of course the customer paint would feature skulls and flames!
