I've been looking for something like your Kathmandu necklace to go with a brown dress I bought for my nephew's Bar Mitzvah. Brown's not really my color but I love the dress so I thought I could break up the brown with some turquoise.

I also blogged about your contest:

I love the Rodeo Drive bracelet. Garnet is my birthstone and I have always loved its deep, rich redness and in as close as possible to its natural form! I wear 3 handmade sterling, garnet and freshwater pearl earrings ever day.

my7kids said...

Woo Hoo! I get another entry for following you!

Hamncheezr said...

I looked at your etsy shop and I can't decide if my favorite is your Amethyst Step Spiral faceted drop earrings or the Andalusia necklace. Both are beautiful, although amethyst is my birthstone so I might have to go with that one. : )

Thanks!

Congrats on yur first giveaway!

My favorite piece from your etsy shop is definitely the Autumn Awakening Necklace. I have a bit of a love affair with Picture Jasper (I'm wearing it right now) and I think the the combination of Tiger's Eye and Moonstone as accent beads is really quite inspired. It's a gorgeous, well thought out piece of art, and you should be quite proud!

Thanks for the opportunity to enter. The earrings you are offering are beautiful! In your shop, I think my favorites are the Amethyst Step Spiral Faceted Drop Earrings. Although, the Making the Rounds earrings are a close second - the different circles & spirals make such a cool design.
Take care!

AngelHeartBeads said...

My favorite are these earrings from your shop: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=12987309 They are so lite and airy looking, and I'm very into the dainty feminine jewelry like this, especially with droplets or multi strand. Very beautiful shop - and I do love all the horse related jewelry you make - I used to horse back ride when I was young before I had an accident an no longer can ride. I miss riding horses, and the farm where I took lessons in Vermont.

Renae said...

Hello! Your work is beautiful! My most favorite piece are the Ice Princess white topaz and sterling earrings. When I see them, I see them on me, as a young girl, as one reserved, one shy, perhaps peeking around the corner of a golden curtain at a ball watching the beautiful ladies and handsome men dance. "I want to be like those beautiful women someday!" I think. And right now, wearing my Ice Princess earrings, I feel like that might truly be possible.

~~And that's exactly the image that came to mind as I looked closely at your earrings :) Thanks for the momentary flight of fancy! I enjoyed it very much!

Ashley said...

My favorite from your etsy shop is- Amethyst Step Spiral Faceted Drop Earrings.
Amethyst means "intoxicated" in Ancient Greek, the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. I guess anyone could were these to a bar and walk out untouched.
