Brand New month, Brand New Contest–and a Question!
Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

September’s Winner!

Amazon Gift Card

The winner of last month’s $20 Amazon gift certificate is…Maureen (Sep. 18’s post)!

Congratulations, Maureen, and thanks for visiting! I’ll be sending you an email shortly.

October’s Contest!

What can you win? If you’ve been hanging out here for a while, you know I make jewelry. I’ll give away one bracelet. Since my inventory is so fluid, I’ll make something new and fitted to the winner’s wrist, based on her color preferences.

You can see samples of what I do here:

What do you have to do to win? Simple. Comment on my blog—on any posting, from now through October 31st! I’ll choose a winner at random from among all the comments. Good luck!

A Question…

Since, I need to give you something to respond to start the ball rolling, here’s a question: Do you wear jewelry? And if you want to tell me more… Do you like simple, small things or chunky big things? Do you like color or simple metal pieces? I’m kinda eclectic myself. I have a huge personal collection that’s filled with costume and gemstone, leather and silver and gold… I love it all. Which is why my hobby makes me very, very happy. :)

    I love jewelry. My family thinks I am nuts because I have so much. Simple pieces are my favorites. My boss goes to a rock show in Tucson every January and he has brought me back some great pieces. I have 5 sets of pearls, some colored, some white, different lengths and sizes. Then there are the mineral bracelets and necklaces. Very cool stuff.

    The bracelets and necklaces you have shown are all interesting mixtures of stones and leather. Definitely winners in my book.

    Congrats to Maureen for the win!

    I loooove jewelry! I make them myself too, although not lately. I started using precious stones, they are lots of fun to use and learned a lot of their properties. Pearls are my fave. I believe that no woman should be without at least one piece of jewelry made of real pearls. My plans are to start using leather. I love anything leather.

    Thank you for the great giveaway!

    The only jewelry I wear consistently is a pair of diamond stud earrings The Man gave me one year for Christmas; my wedding/engagement rings (naturally); and a chain with some charms on it. I started wearing the charms when I was trying to get pregnant with my [twins] with a medallion of St. Gerard, the patron saint of Motherhood on it. The ONLY time the chain has EVER been off of my body has been when I pull it off to unwrap hairs from it — and that means that even through c-sections, surgeries, etc — I have freaked out enough that everyone always just tapes it onto me LOL! How long have I worn this? FIFTEEN YEARS. As for bracelets, I **LOVE** chunky stuff, especially if it has dangly charms on it or little noisy things — especially adore the ones that “promote” holiday times. (Guess that’s the dorky Room Mom in me that “does up” holidays.) Your work is beautiful and I’m sure that all of your customers enjoy it !!

    I love jewelry and never go out without it. I especially like large earrings in silver or jewel-tone colors. I also like watches and bangle bracelets. Love your blue agate bracelet!

    I am a jewelry goddess. I wear everything from simple pieces to more elaborate works of art. I love browsing through thrift shops or yard sales to discover antique pieces that have been discarded. I have found some beautiful pieces on eBay. Thank you for this amazing giveaway. This is such a great prize. michelle_willms@yahoo.com

    I hardly even put studs in any more. I had a job where I worked in a “clean” room and we couldn’t wear jewelry or makeup and I got out of the habit of doing either. I have to buy new mascara every time I have a fancy night out (obviously don’t have many of those either).

    When I do wear something it tends to be smaller and sedate. I love looking at jewelry and I stop myself many times from buying it, reminding myself forcefully that I don’t wear it and don’t have kids to leave it to.

    I own a lot of jewelry. My favorite is an IDIC but I can’t find the one that has my wedding ring on the chain.

    I love jewelry. :-P

    I wear silver for gold makes my skin have a yellow tint to it.
    I have one of your bracelets and I wear it every day almost. I think I need to get another one or two so I can switch them out every once in awhile.

    I rarely wear jewelry and have gone so long without wearing ear rings that the wholes have grown shut. When I do were jewelry I don’t go for colorful, I like smaller pieces, small gems. I used to gravitate toward gold as far as the chain; now I like silver :) I may just have to go out and get my ears pierced for my birthday. When I go out or have someplace special to go is when I like to wear jewelry.

    I don’t wear jewelry all the time but when I do I keep it simple. I do tend to prefer small jewels, strings of beads/pearls that are similar in size and color (nothing too large), and I love leather and silver.

    I don’t get a chance to wear jewelry a lot but I love funky, artistic pieces. Usually silver, but my “good” jewelry is gold. I loved the piece in your picture shown above with all the shades of blue! Gorgeous!

    I like jewelry but don’t necessarily remember to put it on. If it is something that gets in my way, I tend to take it off and stick it in my pocket…not necessarily a good thing if I forget to empty my pockets when I do laundry, sigh. I have very small wrists so I have trouble finding bracelets I like…which means I tend to slip then on and off when I am bored or frustrated…

    I love bracelets and rings. My bracelets are varied, leather, metal and beads. If something catches my eye, I usually buy it.

    I’m very eclectic and where jewelry based on my mood for the day more than trying to match what I’m wearing. Kinda crazy looking sometimes! LOL!

    OMG, You Must Be My Sister From A Different Mother! I Love Large Pieces. My Sister Made Most Of My Costume Jewelry, but If Something Catches My Eye, It’s All Over.

    I love my bling! And, preferably in silver. I have a beautiful ring that I purchased 2 years ago, that has baby blue diamonds and opals (birthstone for October baby), when my only child/son, turned 21. I love it and wear it often. I work in an office, so wearing jewelry comes naturally. I don’t wear a lot on the weekends when running errands and knocking around the house. And, not just rings, but earrings(pierced ears), necklaces and bracelets. I have a chocolate diamond bracelet that my youngest brother and one my sisters gave me for my birthday several years ago, that I love. You can never go wrong with getting me some BLING.
    many thanks,

    I must admit jewellery is my weakness, although I treat myself I keep it for my children, the only jewellery I wear now is my wedding ring and engagement ring, also my mums wedding ring which I have never taken off since she died the same afternoon my daughter was born, your jewellery is fantastic, have you ever thought about selling it.

    Y’all have described so many pretties! I usually wear just a couple pieces during the day–my eco-drive watch and a ring. Today’s ring is a blue cameo ring with the 3 muses. I need their inspiration!!
