my favorite jewelry...and a giveaway

i love it when creators/makers contact me, wanting to do a giveaway on my blog or instagram...
it's so fun and is pretty much a win-win all the way around.

the maker gets exposure for their wares--win for them!
i get kicks out of giving gifts--win for me!
and you get free goodies--win for you!
{and to be perfectly transparent, i enjoy the freebies that i usually receive, too.}

on my blog {or my IG}, i only do giveaways for items that i actually "believe in"...
i'm not just trying to fill blog space, pump out another post, and gather free goods for myself...
i want to provide publicity for quality products and introduce you to possibly new ideas.

all that said, i'm thrilled when i get to give away an item that has been a tried and true favorite of mine...
such is the case today.



 

 

last year, pamela contacted me to see if she could send me a few pieces of her jewelry.  it was a no-strings-attached sort of offer...all she asked was that if i truly enjoyed them and felt comfortable doing so, i'd show them off on my instagram account.

that was over a year and a half ago...
and i've shown these earrings off countless times.
they are, quite sincerely, my very favorite pair of earrings.
made of ultra-thin, super-lightweight sterling silver, i can't even feel that i have them on...
that's something i love in any jewelry i wear...such comfort that i forget i'm even wearing it.

putting the shoe on the other foot, so to speak, i recently contacted pamela, raving on and on once again about how much i love these earrings, and asked if she'd be interested in giving you a pair!
pamela's jewelry shop on etsy has grown and had multiplied hundreds of sales; and although she didn't need the publicity, she so kindly agreed to give away a pair of these fabulous earrings!

here's what pamela has to say about her creating...


I like to make things. Lots of things. Creating with my fingers and bringing to life the ideas that swirl around in my mind makes me feel alive and happy.  It's as simple as that. Whether it be photography, making soap, knitting, jewelry or just plain ol' rock stacking on the coast of Oregon, they all remind me of the quote, "Stay close to anything that makes you glad you're alive" by Hafez. 
For this I am grateful for the jewelry-making journey that began long ago, at the feet of my artist mother. She planted the seed of creativity in my mind and heart and since that time it has flourished.
As for where I find inspiration for my designs, the colors of the gems themselves are naturally inspiring to me. What can I say? I like vibrant, pretty little things that sparkle. And hammering metal. That's pretty fun, too. 

i am so very excited about this giveaway!
treat yourself to an early {free} christmas gift...
or if earrings aren't your thing, save a few $$$ and set these aside to give!  i promise that no recipient could possibly be disappointed in these.

here's what you have to do to enter:
1. visit pamela's etsy shop and pick out your favorite piece of jewelry.
2. come back here and leave a comment stating what your favorite piece in her shop is.  please be sure to leave your email address with your comment.  comments without email addresses with be disqualified.
3. for an extra entry, follow @pamelalalasusan on instagram and come back and leave a separate comment stating that you did so.  again, please be sure to leave your email address with your comment.  comments without email addresses with be disqualified.
