My friend Dana of Dana's Jewelry Designs is an incredibly talented artisan who makes more than jewelry. She sews. She writes. She designs gem trees. She even knows how to play with Excel, making her a fellow geek. She is multi-faceted. We met at my soon to be old job and even though she got swept out with last year's icky layoffs, she has prospered and never slowed down. I still can't believe I know someone who wrote a book that is sold on Amazon!
She sent me some of her incredibly beautiful jewelry and one of her handmade jewelry pouches. I'm tempted to keep the pouch for myself...but I won't. I'll buy my own from her shop and let the winner of this giveaway have everything all in one adorably pretty little package.
So...on to the giveaway!
I'm not a huge fan of wearing copper jewelry. I lean almost exclusively to wearing silver - both fine and sterling. Therefore I rarely work in copper, although I have soldered a few brass and copper pieces in the past. Her copper makes me want to change my mind though!
She does an excellent job of tying all these pieces together. Crystals and glass in very subtle shades (a little bit of pink and a little brown in the ring...the earrings have a pale brown...all the rest are crystal clear with rainbow shimmer) that will go with everything you own.
The winner will receive everything pictured here...
- Copper Bangle Bracelet
- Spiral Pendant Necklace
- Spiral Earrings
- Spiral "chandelier" Ring
- Handcrafted Jewelry Pouch
