Giveaway Time!

It's time for another Giveaway! I tried to get one out a few weeks ago, but I have been very busy with the Christmas rush and trying to get every order out the next day. To celebrate the holidays and me getting to my 500th sale this year, I will be giving away two necklaces.  Each necklace has a unisex quality about them, so if you are the winner it doesn't matter if you are male or female. The first necklace is an English Flint Arrowhead that will come on a silver plated chain. The second is a Chalcopyrite peacock ore wire wrapped stone pendant. The winner will choose their chain lengths. Enter more then once, and the more you spread the word the greater your chances are of wining. The winner will be announced Dec 27th in the evening. This Giveaway is open to everyone.

Sunday Sunday

What a weekend, it flew by so fast! Friday I worked and then went shopping afterwards for my Niece and Nephews, which is getting harder each year. At first I was full of ideas, but now I feel a bit uninspired because how many times can I buy them LEGO? I also found my husband all of his gifts so that is taken care of.

Saturday was spent with my mom, running errands and watching a few episodes of Downtown Abbey. I never thought I could like that kind of show, but so far it is growing on me. I think I might even get my mom the first season for Christmas. It's a great show to get my jewelry orders ready to, and that is also what I have been working on.

This is my last sale of the year so if you have been eyeing anything in my shop, now is the best time to get that deal. In my LOVE n LAVISH shop I have a coupon code: BlackFriday2014 that gets you 20% off and my Fauna and Forest shop is 30% off. Enjoy these discounts until Monday late evening!

Have you got most of your shopping done?

The Tea Party Concert

I have always liked The Tea Party, and yesterday's concert did not disappoint. I haven't heard this band live before, and I was amazed at Jeff's vocals, because his voice sounded just as good live as on all of the albums K and I own (this doesn't always happen when you go to concerts). The concert was entertaining, exciting and intimate at times. It's great to rediscover a band that kinda took a break there for a while (they were really big from about '96-2006), but with their new album The Ocean At The End  now available,  I hope these guys can make a come back, and also get rediscovered by the younger generation that may not know them. I don't share music here on my blog much (to each their own), but The Tea Party has a unique sound and I hope you enjoy the video. If you haven't heard of this group before, I hope you're pleasantly surprised to discover a new band that you really like. Check out their new music on their main Tea Party site, as well as get a taste of their best songs on their Greatest Hits album Tangents on Itunes.

We took a few photos of the concert:

Bear and the Adelaide - My New Ring!

I have a bit of a ring obsession, and my favorite stone is Turquoise, which I am sure many of you love too. I like how silver compliments gemstones such as Turquoise and Labordite, and I spend quite a bit of time on Etsy checking out many of my favorite Metalsmith's shops to see what's new. I first found Jessie Corgy on Instagram and was happy to see that she sold her work on Etsy as well. I love Jessie Corgys shop Bear and the Adelaide, because the pieces in her shop are so drool worthy. She doesn't shy away from using the natural oxidation that occurs in metals, highlighting each stunning piece and giving each of her rings a raw beautiful look.

She kindly worked with me on the ring I am wearing, letting me pick the stone that I liked, and I chose a simple braid to go around the turquoise stone and a double split band. I am a huge fan of a brown matrix in Turquoise stones, and this large Pilot Mountain Turquoise stone made me say wow the minute I saw it.

If you are looking for a great statement piece, or wanting to add a little more Turquoise into your jewelry collection, check out Bear and the Adelaide. Not only does she have a variety of stunning Turquoise, she has Moonstone, Mother of Pearl, Citrine, Black Obsidian, Druzy Quartz, Tourmaline and more. Jessie does take custom orders and is excellent to work with, so check her shop out.

Have a safe and fun Halloween and check back this weekend because I will be posting the info about my GIVEAWAY.
