Dripping in Gems --My First Giveaway!




Sterling Silver chain with amazonite, pearl and topaz pendant (blue opal charm on clasp)

Freshwater pearls in various shades of green on sterling silver

Perfect for summer! Leather with sterling silver starfish, or gemstone/pearl pendants.

My signature bracelets -
Freshwater pearls with any gemstone you like & sterling silver clasp.
Perfect bridesmaid or hostess gift.


14Kt gold-filled chain with blue opal pendant.
What a beautiful color combination. Too bad you can't tell in this picture.

It's the season for t-shirts, sundresses, weddings, and all kinds of parties and events.

How do you make last years dress look fresh? How do you take something as simple as a t-shirt and make it look like you've pulled together an outfit?...

A knockout necklace of course.

I'm talking absolutely dripping in gemstones or fun colored genuine freshwater pearls.


A quality piece with sterling silver or 14Kt gold-filled clasp.



Add a vintage rhinestone brooch that can be worn with or without your necklace and you have something that works everyday AND on very special occasions. That's one-of-a-kind fabulous and functional jewelry.


How do you get one of these around your neck you ask?...

Well, I make these beautiful necklaces. And for my first giveaway I'm giving away any item from my line of jewelry, currently available at The Artful Gift Shop. This includes semiprecious gemstone necklaces, earrings, and bracelets like you see in this post.

If you're not local I'll work with you to create a design just for you with a retail value up to $200.

Hi Julie,

Just yesterday I began a no shopping experiment for a year. So I don't think I can officially enter your drawing but I'm dying inside b/c your designs are so beautiful. But I did want to take a minute to tell you what I love about your blog.

First I love that you are so down-to-earth in your writing. Also that you use so much original content. I LOVE that! And that content is good. Your decorating is just beautiful!

Hey Julie,

Wow! These are beautiful pieces. I've been reading your blog since you first left me a comment on mine a while back, and I am so impressed with all you do! From jewelry design to all you've done in your home - you are very talented.

I truly enjoy your before and afters. You've done some amazing things, and I think that is what I enjoy so much - seeing what real people have done in their own homes to make it special.

Thanks for offering this amazing giveaway!
Kathy

just got a first peek at your fabulous artwork after being referred by a friend. I would love to receive a giveaway piece as I do work for a local nonprofit animal group and we are having a silent auction to raise funds. I just know this would delight not only the receipient of the piece but also several animals!! Susan
