Official Giveaway

For my first giveaway I am offering one piece of custom jewelry. Due to my camera issues I do not have a picture to post today, but hopefully I will have examples to post soon. The winner will get to customize whatever piece they choose. You may choose between a necklace, bracelet, or a pair of earrings. I have lots of stones to choose from, and I am always adding to my collection.

In order to enter this contest you must leave a comment and tell me what type of jewelry you would like to see for sale. Please leave your name and a way to contact you. Comments without contact information will not be entered. I will randomly draw a winner on Sunday at 8pm Eastern, and announce by 10pm. US mailing addresses only.

Can't wait to see the ideas you all come up with...look for an Etsy shop opening soon!

I love simple jewelry-not a lot of bling. Earrings that aren't too long or dangly with just a simple pearl or other colorful stone are my favorite. Thanks for the giveaway and hope this helps! Good luck with the Etsy store-love Etsy!

I love etsy and handmade jewelry! count me in :-)

mrsb28wolf said...

I love all jewelry, but i really love bracelets. Dangly and big seem to be my style, but I especially love home-made jewelry that has beautiful beads. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Kimberly said...

Thank you for the wonderful prize offer.

As much as I need earrings I think I would much rather have a necklace or a bracelet. But I have a thick neck and wrist (oh the joys of being overweight) so I hope that is not a problem?

I can be reached at the ULR linked to my name. THANKS!

Rasberryswrlgirl said...

Hello. I love bracelets. I love purples, blues and greens. I like earrings that are light weight and dangly. I prefer jewelry that is unique.

Best wishes with your Etsy shop.

I love handmade jewelry! Thanks for the offer

Nicol said...

I love earrings. I don't really wear very many necklaces. I want to but I am always afraid that it might be overkill for the outfit so I stick with earrings or bracelets.

groovyinclinations said...

Oh my Alexa is a beauty!! You both are so very lucky!

This really sounds like a super giveaway and I would adore the chance to work with you on a super design!

I like sterling silver jewelry with stones. My favorite piece of jewelry is an turquoise and silver bead anklet. I seldom take it off. So anything along those lines is great! I also love sterling silver earings with stones in them - usually studs, but sometimes dangly.

Count me in I love jewels

Sharla said...

I wish I could see some of your stuff! Enter me though and I usually prefer silver and fairly simple jewelry.

RJ said...

I really like cross necklaces but casual ones. I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of mom but I don't like to leave home without a cross on.

One La Costa Mom said...

What a cutie! I like the contrast of pink and black on your site. I'm a big fan of necklaces and rings. I like shorter length necklaces or ones that can be looped to make 2 strands. I like chunky or "raw" looking stones or beads (not too polished). And lately I'm into glass. I bought a fused glass ring at an antique store. Thanks for the chance to win!

kbookreviews said...

I like silver jewelry with a few stones thrown in :)

I always like to see unique earrings. I make some earrings myself, but it's always nice to see what other ideas people come up with. Good luck with your Etsy store... my Etsy id is sevenbacon. Look me up when you get yours up and running and I'll come check it out! And my email is on my Blogger profile.

stampedwithgrace said...

I love long necklaces, smaller earrings and bracelets are my favorite :)

MoreThanMommy said...

I love custom giveaways (especially jewelry). Thanks for a nice contest!

Depending on the style, I'd choose either a necklace or earrings.

Stephanie said...

Hi, I love simple jewlery. Like a necklace with one beautiful stone. i also like original dangly earrings

the4moyers said...

How cool! I really like simple, pretty jewelry. I really like small earrings - there seem to be a lot of earrings that hang, but not a lot of "stud-type" earrings. That would be nice. I like colorful necklaces and bracelets, simple - yet either casual or elegant. I hope this helps. Thanks for offering!

Joy said...

I love simple jewelry as well! But I also love those necklaces that cascade on your neck. I LOVE chandelier earrings but don't own a pair (I can never find them!).

Smilingsal said...

I like a bit longer necklace.

Rachel said...

I love simple, classy, eclectic jewelry. I am especially fond of pendants on nice chains(IE: not ball chain); stamped stainless accented with a simple, pretty stone; uncomplicated, layered necklaces and bracelets in simple color schemes(without a lot of fussy metal spacers/etc); realistic flowers and leaves, etc etc.

I like earrings and necklaces. I am partial to gold rather than silver, and nothing too gaudy or large are my preferences.

LadyVampire2u said...

Well I love jewelry. Heck, what woman doesn't right? I like silver jewelry best. And a simple yet elegant design. Turquise is a favorite stone of mine. Think native american jewelry and you probably can come up with pieces I'd love. Thanks for entering me and good luck to everyone.

Denise said...

I like anything silver & my fav colors right now are blue and brown! Thanks!

Snowbird said...

I don't wear earrings (gasp) but I love necklaces and bracelets. I would love to see something in purple stones or crystals and perhaps pearls.

rccalyn said...

Hi! I've been thinking that my earring collection is getting outdated :-)

JL said...

I like gemstone jewelry and swarovski (not sure of the spelling) crystal bracelets. Nothing too big. Maybe a bracelet in green or pink or something so they go with lots of stuff. My mother-in-law got a swarovski crystal bracelet for my 15 month old daughter and she gets so many compliments on it. Probably since it's little and cute, too. : )
Thank you!

I love colorful jewelry in the spring & summer. I love all of it, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, ankle braclets.

Cherie J said...

I love earrings! I like the dangly kind with the fish hook type posts. I love colorful ones with pretty gemstones. Since cool colors look best on me I tend to go for those type of colors. Basically blues, purples, reds as well as blacks and whites.

I'd like to see Sterling Silver, with real stones.

PS said...

I love wearing things that people rarely see! Something a little edgy, but not too crazy that I don't look like I'm trying to be a teenager again!

hazel said...

I like long dangly earrings. I like the fish hook type of post and I like those long ones that you sorta thread through your ear...the one that I have has a chain that is too thick to go through though, so if you make those, make sure the chain is thin!

Coralee said...

I love jewelry, but I don't own many bracelets, love to see different bracelet designs.

Kyra said...

Bonita said...

I like colorful pieces, but not too complicated.

paula h said...

Alot of the handmade jewelry I see is very chunky. I'm petite so I would love to see more delicate jewelry. Also more versatile pieces, things that would look just as great with jeab=ns as they would a dressy outfit.

I love the shell necklace that you have posted. I like necklaces and anklets. I dont know if you do anklets not many people do.

Laura Delich said...

Well, I just love coordinating sets! I also like toe rings and anklets. Maybe add a few of those to your shop--I think that would round it out well. But regardless, your jewelry is very pretty!

Dawn said...

Beaded necklaces is what I'd love to see. Perhaps with one semi-precious stones as the main piece.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Telima said...

I love earrings...I think they're a great way to spice up an outfit or to make something casual look classy. At the same time, though, I don't like bulky earrings. I think simple, classy earrings are beautiful for just about any occasion or outfit. My email address is in my Blogger profile, just in case I win!

jessleigh said...

I love stone and shell pendants. I also like necklaces in longer lengths. Lots of regular necklaces are too small for me. I REALLY hope I win! I am a first year teacher, and I really can't afford any luxuries and my jewelry collection is very sad.

Becky said...

I love to wear a nice simple necklace! Thank you for the giveaway.

Something I would like to see for sale, personally, is clip-on earrings. I don't have pierced ears, nor do I want to, but it would be so nice to have the option of handmade earrings I could wear for those rare special occasions.

Jinxy & Me said...

I like jewelry with silver and interesting colored stones or beads. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kim said...

I'm really into necklaces and earrings right now. Then again I do love a great bracelet.

I like big bold pendants, similar to the first photo.

Gale said...

I have been looking for a pair of earrings for my sister in law. She loves mother of pearl (abalone shell) so something like the round ones would be perfect...if not to big (she's not a "huge bulky" jewelery kind of girl). Feel free to e-mail me with your etsy shop when it opens.

A glance at my world said...

I like necklaces. They're really the only jewelry I can wear because of an allergy on my wrist and my ear lobes aren't pierced.

Lona said...

Love the shell necklace--very pretty! I would like to see natural, found objects incorporated into simple jewelry (i.e. rocks, shells, etc.)

Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

Erica G said...

Your items are very pretty. Do you make any rings? I would love to see rings and more bracelets.
