Your favorite piece of jewelry GIVEAWAY!


Thank you so much for supporting my little Etsy shop! I now have almost 1000sales in my shop. Wow, what a milestone! When I open my shop in October 2007 I didn’t know what I was expecting. I open because I make jewelry. Even though, I was making jewelry for over 10years (just for fun) and I was working at fine jewelry store as “jewelry sales person” I really have NO clue what it takes to sell my handmade jewelry. But it was fun to list and I was very surprised by occasional sales. You know, the feeling, “wow, somebody bought my handmade!”

But then, I got let go from my job. I had to get serious because I really didn’t want to go get another “job”. It was about 2years ago. At this point I think I had about 20 – 30 sales total. So from then, I worked really really hard. Slowly start to seeing regular sales and my design grew with my shop. So, which piece is your most favorite in my shop? For me, I have to say “poppies hook earrings”. It’s so simple & fun to wear! But what color? I can’t decide…. Now, please tell me your favorite piece here by leaving a comment and I’ll draw the winner on June 1st. please check back here to see if you are the winner!

Thank you each and every one of you!

I think all the earrings shown are beautiful, but the ones I like the best are the aqua ones on the bottom (followed very closely by the golden ones above).
You've inspired me to give enameling a try again after many, many years. I'm still in the learning stages, but having a lot of fun in the process. Thank you!

Hello Natsuko!!

I just happened upon your shop while I was searching "locally handmade" on Etsy. Your pieces have a vibrant, youthful touch. I am IN LOVE with the cresent moon ring. The poopy hook earrings in grape come in at a close second, though. ;) I'm so excited to have discovered you! Thanks for what you do! :)

Cassandra said...

Oh what a great giveaway! I love your jewelry, it's so hard to choose just one! I do like the poppy hook earrings, but my absolute favorite item in your shop would have to be the Poppy Bouquet ring set (Spring Showers). I just love the color combo.

Thank you for the opportunity!

I came across your store in an effort to support more local artists (and feed my need for jewelry and art!)

I'd have to say I love the poppy hook earrings and the necklace duo. Without a doubt, in the red-orange poppy colors! Cheers.

A few of my favorites include: The Rustic Poppy studs and rings, red orange poppies on hook, long stem poppies in plum, Spring Shower Poppy Bouquet necklace, and the poppy bouquet ring berry mix.

I have a hard time choosing between the plum poppy hook earrings and the poppy on frame necklace (and I like that as pictured in bright red/orange or again the plum color!). I love that your jewelry is simple, a little rustic and with such gorgeous colors!

I love the Poppy bouquet ring (berry mix) as I'm a huge fan of rings, but I love the Blooming Poppy hook earrings too. I love poppies, I love jewellery and I love enamel...you've got it all here!

My favs are the poppies on hammered lines in the berry color. I love the saturation of color on your enamels. Your Etsy store is beautiful.

Emilycia said...
