Black Friday - Cyber Monday Deal

I figured I'd do my part in helping you avoid the mall this weekend by offering a great deal.


Among the almost free items are my Live, Love earrings

My husband is offering free shipping on all his key chains and many of his pens
If you haven't visited his shop yet, this is the time to do it!

Giveaway time!!

This will be my first giveaway on my blog and I would like to try something different. I have absolutely nothing against traditional giveaways and LOVE winning them but for this one I would like to focus on those that have hit a real rough patch in life and need a little cheering up.

What I want you to do is think of a person that may be a friend of yours, someone in your community or even a family member. Just make sure you have their address as I will need this if the person is selected. Then without going into too much detail (unless the person approves of it) tell me why they should win. Please do not give out names as everyone will not appreciate this, but I would love to know how you know them. This giveaway is open until 10 PM EST Monday 11/23 so get your entries in and please spread the word through twitter, your blog and forums. If there are many entries this may become a reoccurring giveaway.

So what will the winner end up with?! Well these sterling silver wrapped Amethyst earrings and a matching necklace of course!

Now hurry up and nominate someone.
If you have a twitter or etsy account, please leave the user name. If not, you can write your e-mail. No spamming, I promise.

Rough Stuff

Perfectly faceted beads can be amazing and I do thoroughly enjoy them but there is something about imperfection that makes my heart skip a beat and beads that are rough cut or shaped with a hammer usually capture that raw look that I am after. Well, I just received the most amazing hammer shaped beads and simply had to create something so here is the result, three of them being a series of the same design but with a very different feel due to the stone.
