It's Holiday Giveaway time!

The holidays are here!!!! yay!!!!!!!  This is my absolute favorite time of year.  My husband has resigned to the fact that the car ride home from Thanksgiving dinner marks the start of Christmas carols 24/7.  Okay... maybe not 24/7, but close to it!  My phone has been outfitted with a Christmas wallpaper and ringtone, and I'm plotting the soon to be holiday transformation of our living room.  All is right in the world. :-)

With that being said, it's time to get into the holiday spirit and do a little giving! That's right.  It's giveaway time!  I thought about giving away a holiday themed piece of jewelry, but I've decided to offer something a bit more personal and versatile.  One lucky reader will be receiving the most popular necklace in my shop, The Mini Birthstone Initial Necklace!



The winner will receive one custom sterling silver initial necklace that is handmade by me using the font, letter and birthstone of their choice.

    Heart your shop, and it's tough to choose, but I would say that any piece with a bird or a leaf is my favorite!

  26. There are so many beautiful pieces in your Etsy shop but I think my favorite is the wedding day keepsake necklace. Your work takes small things and celebrates their preciousness, and that piece reminds me of my memories of that day that changed my life forever. So beautiful...
