Happy Holidays

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be MIA for the next 2-3 weeks. I am going on vacation to Seattle and will finally see my fiance. The last time I was there was two summers ago when the weather was beautiful.

So now I'm kind of worried about the rain and snow. However, it'll be my first white Christmas =) and my first birthday away from home.

So just a reminder, today is the last day to place an order before I leave. I will be leaving on the 23rd and will be back on Jan. 5th (hopefully with lots of new supplies from Seattle) and will announce a small giveaway with my return.

I also wanted to add this necklace and earrings set I made for my friend's birthday. I will have 3 available for purchase.

#526 Karing Necklace/Earrings Set
Matching necklace and earrings set. Necklace chain is approximately 25-30 in.
Price: $14

And lastly, I wanted to wish everybody Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas.

I wished upon a star...

I love stars. I think they're beautiful and I have made a couple pieces all containing stars. I just wanted to make a few more new items before I leave in 1 week.  I went shopping the other day and bought lots of things. Some were gifts and others were jewelry supplies. It got me very motivated to make some more new items.

 Item #318
Crystal Pearl Star Double Piercing
This contains glass pearls, swarovski crystals, and star charms. Picture only shows 1 side. This price is for a pair
Price: $8 (or $5 for one side)

 Item #227
Simple Star Dangle Cuff Earring
I love simple and because this is so simple, it's one of my favorites.
Price: $7

Item #228

This is a bit different. I wanted to try something new and I think it's cute.
Price: $7

Item #229
All Stars Dangle Cuff Earring
This contains stars and swarovski crystals with a double chain cuff earring.
Price: $8

That's it for now. Hope you like these new pieces. I still want to hear suggestions.

That's about it for now. I am looking for more supplies and would like to hear some suggestions. What would you want to see?

Contest Winner

I have been doing homework and now I'm taking a small break. This contest has been going on long enough. I placed each entry into a spreadsheet and numbered each entry with a double entry for those who mentioned the contest on their blog/website. There was a total of 13 people and 18 entries. I went on random.org around midnight and it helped me choose a random number between 1-18. 
The winner is number:
2 Sherry

I will be contacting you maybe tomorrow to get all the details so

Thanks to everyone that entered. I didn't think there was enough people who entered this time to have two winners so this is it for now but don't worry. This is not the last. I will be having another giveaway after the new year. Thanks again!

Double Hearted Necklace

This necklace was first introduced in my giveaway and I just wanted to post this so that it can be available for purchase. I love the reflection that Aurora Borealis gives off. It's so pretty. This would be a great gift for the holidays coming up.

#524 Double Hearted Swarovski Necklace
The picture above shows Clear AB and Heliotrope 10mm swarovski hearts
16" chain necklace
Price: $8

I took another picture to show how beautiful it looks when it reflects the light. I also have other colors such as light rose AB, peridot AB, lt sapphire AB, violet AB, and vitrial light. I will take pictures of it soon.

I also want to mention that I will be gone during the holidays. I am going on vacation between December 23 to January 5. I haven't seen my boyfriend for 3 months (since he's a marine and stationed in the east coast) and we're both going to fly to Seattle to spend the holidays (and my birthday) with his family. I'm super excited. So I just wanted to let everyone know so that you could place your orders accordingly. I will stop taking orders on 20th and will ship all orders prior to leaving. I will come back on Jan. 5 and will take orders again. I will also be getting a new camera while I'm there so right now I just have to borrow a camera until then. Look forward to a Christmas themed cuff earring soon!

And a last note. Contest is ending in 2 days! Enter while you can =)

Cyber Monday BOGO

Yes I am having a sale for cyber monday. I thought "Why not?" so here it is. This offer only applies when the order is placed between 12:00AM PST to 11:59PM PST Monday, 11-30-09. However, it only applies to 1 item because I think my prices are low as it is. You also must mention this BOGO when you fill out the form to get the discount.

I also want to mention that there is one more week for my giveaway. To my followers that haven't entered, all you have to do is leave a comment under the giveaway post here with your name and e-mail to enter and since there are not that many who entered, everybody has a very good chance to win.

I also do gift wrapping for the holidays. Here is a picture of one of my boxes (without gift wrap.)

The designs currently on them are silver snowflakes. These are just an additional $1 each (free with orders over $15 before shipping). They're small enough as jewelry boxes and large enough to fit multiple items. The jewelry will come wrapped in tissue paper so it does not move inside the box. I will choose the wrapping paper designs when purchased. However, with wrapping paper, you are not able to look inside/open it before giving it to someone so you may choose to have it with or without wrapping paper.

I also want to let you know that I currently do not have a working camera so I'm unable to take pictures of my new designs =( I will try to borrow someone else's in the mean time.

...and lastly, I want to welcome all my new followers and thank everyone for complimenting my designs.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving. I hope everyone had a wonderful time with their families. I just wanted to make a quick post with a few pictures of Pebbles. She came with me when I went over to my family's house and there were a total of 9 dogs there. Yes we love our dogs but too bad I didn't bring my camera. Well my camera have been messed up for a while and I've been using my Dad's camera. I'm thinking about buying a new camera soon because I have new jewelry to take pictures of. What camera should I get?

So recently, I bought some clippers and gave Pebbles a haircut. Now she can wear her clothes.


She has a very long body.


I bought this shirt/coat at target for $2.50. It was a very good price and they have other designs as well. I bought her a medium because of the length of her body. She reminds me of a cat because she stretches all the time and she also likes fish.

Well I just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving and...I may even have a cyber monday sale for my jewelry. I am thinking of a huge sale like a buy one, get one free. Will anybody be interested? Well I'll probably post it Sunday night and have it for only one day. I may hit the #70 by then. It's getting close......
 and now I sleep. Must wake up early tomorrow. Happy Holidays everyone!


I have been working on this for a while thinking of what to give and how this all should work. I have been selling my jewelry for several months already and I want to give back. I am going to divide this into 2 prizes (possibly 3).

You must be a follower of this blog
I will ship worldwide so anybody can enter.
People under the age of 18 must have the parents consent (to receive items in the mail)

So here are two ways to win a prize:
1. Currently, on my personal orders list that I put together, I have a little over 60 transactions I've done. I don't think it's very accurate but I will be going according to that list. The #70 transaction I do will win one prize. However, I will add little freebies for those who places an order before #70. There are no minimum to how much you spend on an order. Basically, the person who places (and have paid) the 70th order will win one prize. But if this person is not a follower, I will simply just choose the next person who orders so it is important that I am able to find you on my followers list. This part of the give-away ends when I get a winner.

2. The second prize will be randomly chosen through this blog. All you have to do is post a comment with your name and e-mail address under this post. AND to increase your chances of winning, place my small banner AND a picture of the prizes (the two pictures below) on your blog/website with a link directing it back to my blog. Then just include the link of your blog/website in the post with your name and e-mail. This adds another entry and doubles your chances of winning. If I get a lot of entries, I will add another prize. This part of the give-away starts now and ends on Dec 6, 2009 at 11:59PM pacific time.

So what are the prizes? It took me a while to choose what I should give out. So here they are:

Row 1:
218 Single Star Cuff Earring
518 Peace pendant (w/out necklace)
310 Silver and Pewter Studded Earring (one of each color, silver star can be paired with the single star cuff earring and the pewter star can be paired with the double chain star & heart cuff earring)
Row 2:
520 Double Open Heart Pendant (w/out necklace)
251 Silver, Gold, and Black Ear Cuff
208 Double Chain Star & Heart Cuff Earring
Row 3:
452 Flowerful Charm
521 Anchor Pendant (w/out necklace)
410 Growth of Innocence Earring

So who gets what?
Each winner will get all 9 of these jewelry items
this #524 double hearted swarovski necklace I recently made (w/necklace chain). This giveaway includes 3 other pendants which can be interchangeable with this one necklace. Necklace is 17 in.

This is in Clear AB and Heliotrope. Other colors available: Peridot AB, Light Rose AB, Vitrial Light, Aquamarine AB, and Violet AB. Winners can request the colors of the two hearts.

Including one or two of these brand new beauty items I have:

That is a total of 11-12 items. So get on it! Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

May be subject to some changes if I find any errors.

So I had a few comments on my dog Pebbles. So I decided to post more pictures of her. Here is one to start. This is a picture of me holding her. She was just 10 weeks old (which was over 2 years ago).

She's just too adorable. So hard to resist squeezing her too tight.

Happy Halloween

 This is just a side post from my store.

I was just getting things done before I leave for tonight and then I remembered to put on a costume for my dog.

It's one of her old costumes she had since she was little. Her antennas just wouldn't stay on her head because she's so hairy. Her name is Pebbles and she is a full breed Maltese. Let me know if you want to see more of Pebbles (or should I just be posting my jewelry).


I also made earrings to match my costume this year. I am going to be an indian =)

They're so light on my ears. I could barely feel them. Still deciding weather I should make more and sell them. What do you think?

Anyways, Just wanted to say Happy Halloween and I will be adding new ear cuffs and earrings in my next post. Also wanted to remind you that free shipping ends tonight. Have fun!
