And We Have A Winner!

Woo Hoo!  In our drawing this morning for the book give-a-way, Regina was selected.  She's been a loyal blog follower and I'm so excited that she has won!

(Psst,...Regina,...I will send you a private message and see where you want this mailed! )

Anyway - we had a few folks send us comments here and a few more on FB, but several of you either emailed me or Etsy Convo'd me as well, so there was a nice showing of hands for who wanted to win Irina Miech's book, "Beautiful Wire Jewelry for Beaders" - thanks so much to all who participated.

I'm getting ready this week to blog about a few of the folks who are using my earring wires in their designs.  Their creations are super cool and would make perfect holiday gifts and stocking stuffers,....and of course they'd make wonderful gifts to give yourslef, as well!!  (And this way you know you'll like the gift you get!)

So, Until Next Time,

Peace, Love and Congrats to Regina - here's to making beautiful wire jewelry!

Cheers,

Pretty Things!

I've got another wonderful client to feature today - Patricia Barden from Etsy

I'm grateful that Pat has used some of my earring wires in her fabulous designs and wanted to share them with you.

These stones pop with natural colors and would make great gifts for the upcoming winter holidays!

Think of chilly winter weather and then put these on and they instantly warm up your day!!  With their great organic look, they can be paired easily with either jeans and sweater or a nice dress, tights and your new favorite boots!!

There's also some really cool necklaces over at Patricia's shop, too - very unique, with cool stones and colors mixed together - go check 'em out!  Perfect for some attention getting!


Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Great Designs!
