The second giveaway of the day is happening because of the generous heart of one of my favorite people~Ellie of SHINING STONES (and One Crafty Mother)

If you need a unique and beautiful gift for your sister or your mom or your mom-in-law or your best friend, ETC., you've come to the right place.
Because not only is Ellie giving one lucky winner one of these:


that lucky winner will also get one of these:



to go with these:


Yes that's right, friends. The Black Raspberry Pearl set (worth over $70). Thank you, Ellie.

This set is made with sterling silver wire and swarovski pearls. The necklace is a sterling silver box chain. Ellie will custom size the ring for the winner to any size (1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 sizes included).

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to enter.


Ellie has also graciously offered to give 20% of every purchase made through this event to Bead for Life! So go shop her Etsy shop for affordable, unique and handmade jewelry and she will do the rest! (but you must enter BEADFORLIFE at checkout so she knows to give the 20%--you simply add that in the 'message to seller' option.)

The photos at the beginning of this post are just a taste of the many many lovely lovelies to choose from in Ellie's shop. The Fly Away Home necklace (the nest with three blue eggs) is the one Ellie sent me when I first chose to get sober. I cherish it, like I do our friendship. And now it holds even more meaning, with it's three little eggs, just like my three little eggs. I just wanted you to know.

This giveaway will close at 10pm (central) on Sunday, December 5th and the winner will be announced the following day.

P.S. Remember, for extra entries (a separate comment for each, please) you can support Bead for Life and come back and let me know that you did. Read all about those options here. (These are simply options, they are not required to take part in the Shining Stones giveaway.)

Lauren said...

Beautiful stuff Ellie! I'm about to order my christmas stuff now! :) LOVE it!

Lauren said...

Why hello goose! I got chased by a goose when I was little, like in a diaper little, and it was NOT fun! Now it's kinda hilarious though, and that duck I found who'd stepped on a fish-hook when I was 15 was lucky I didn't hold grudges... The duck was ok, and so was I.

Speaking of nanermals of the fowl-persuasion, I just tweeted your link!
