Jewelry Giveaway for June: Black Chalcedony and Clear Crystal Long Sterling Silver Threader Earrings

The jewelry giveaway for June is this pair of long, 6 inches, threader earrings with Black Chalcedony natural gemstone beads, sterling silver accent beads and Clear Swarovski crystal.  

The focal point of these earrings are the Black Chalcedony heart-shaped beads, above which I have placed a clear Swarovski crystal (for wonderful sparkle) flanked by 3mm silver accent beads, and hand-wrapped wire.  All metal is .925 sterling silver.

This jewelry giveaway is available to all United States residents, 18 and over, void where prohibited.  It begins on June 1 at 12:00 p.m. EST and will end on June 30, 2013 at 11:00 p.m. EST.  In popular go-with-everything black, these threader earrings will get lots of wear. They can be worn casually, with jeans, or dressed up.  The picture below shows greater detail.

Giveaway Sri Lanka Moonstone Stretch Bracelet and Dangle Earrings with Sterling Ear Wires

This jewelry giveaway has already started on 6/15 and will run until 6/30. This set is in celebration of reaching 2000 fans on Facebook. One winner will be selected. You will need Facebook for this giveaway as I am using a Facebook application, Giveaway Tab.  Enter using this link:

I have used Sri Lanka Moonstone oval beads and faceted round beads, silver plated accent beads and one 10mm Swarovski clear crystal in each piece. Sri Lanka has a slight blue hue to it.  I was really surprised how it showed the blue when I scanned the set with black in the background. Here are the two pictures:

 All findings are silver plated, with the exception of the ear wires, which are .925 sterling silver. If you would like clip on earrings, I can make that switch (they would be silver plated). The stretch bracelet measures 7-1/2 inches.

Best wishes, please share, and thanks for your support!

Purple Lovers Fashion Set with Amethyst Heart-Shaped Dangle Earrings and Maxi Dress

Purple is one of my favorite colors, so don't be surprised if you see if fairly often. I also love long maxi dresses. I like the long, lean look (even if you have a few extra pounds) and they are perfect for the summer.  This purple printed one is so attractive, and I particularly am fond of the shoulder treatment.

I've pulled in my silver plated Russian amethyst heart-shaped and gemstone chips dangle earrings. They can be dressed up or down (purple tank and jean shorts, for example). All findings are silver plated and the ear wire is dot style, silver plated copper.

I've also featured some items from Amazon: the gorgeous purple high-heel sandals, the purple and silver Bollywood style bracelet, and the Shalimar perfume for women. Obviously, this outfit is for someone special and not a get together with a few girlfriends :-)

Hand Jewel in Sterling Silver with Swarovski Elements by Bijoux de Looty

Today I will be sharing a lovely hand jewel by my friend Laure, the creator of Bijoux de Looty. You have seen some of her fashion sets posted here that feature her jewelry.

If there was one word I would use to describe her style, I would use glamour. If I could add others, I would add on sophisticated, elegant, feminine, and romantic. While based in Paris, France, her items are available worldwide.

Her specialty is sterling silver with Swarovski Elements...the finest crystal creations that can be used. The photography on her web site will enable you to see and appreciate the beauty of the crystals she uses and the final design of each piece.  She has a number of bracelets, and I love the hand jewel! In this one design (which is not fussy or overly ornate) she captures glamour, femininity, elegance and sophistication-all at the same time!

As described on her site: "The So Circle hand jewel is an extremely glamorous finery. With its interlacings of crystals set in Pointiage, your hand will be dressed with grace... For the evening, wear it with the matching earrings and necklace."

This hand ornament is versatile in that you could wear it on a casual dinner or date, as well as to an elegant affair, where it would be especially stunning when paired with the other pieces in the collection.

The hand jewel is available in 3 colors and finishes: • Evanescence : Sterling silver • Luxe Secret : Rose gold plated Sterling silver (Vermeil rose) • Paris Noir : Palladium plated Sterling silver.

Visit her site today to view the So Circle hand jewel. Here is the direct link:
