A New Love & a Giveaway

While on our cabin retreat last week, my sister and I
tried our hand at creating jewelry.....and we're hooked.

I made this first necklace for my little sister. She's
the same age as my daughter, and lives in Colorado.
I got to see her last month, which was such a treat.


After the first one, I couldn't stop. So, I made this one for me.


And this one.

The funny thing is, I don't actually wear jewelry because
being a borderline hermit, I'm usually in my jammies.

Do you think the mailman will find it odd
that I wear jewelry with my jammies?

Now, I also had to make a necklace in this beautiful blue
that is fast becoming a favorite of mine.

So, I made this one for YOU.

If you would like to win this necklace, just leave a comment
on this post. I will draw a winner this Friday, the 20th.

Easy Peasy!

They're just gorgeous, Debi! I love how you're combining everything--so beautiful! And how generous are you to give one away?!

And personally, I find nothing at all wrong with wearing jewelry and pajamas together....I think it's quite elegant!

Have a wonderful night!

Good morning Debi! Personally I don't think I would care whether the mailman thought I was crazy or not if it feels good do it is my motto. Your work is beautiful and I would be honored to wear it. Unfortuantely I will not be wearing it to much in my jammies, since I work outside the home but I would be wearing it out and about..take care
