Gorgous Giveaway

Good Morning to you all, and what better way to start off a fantastic weekend then with a Shop feature and giveaway that you won't want to pass up. I had posted in the Etsy forums that I was looking for some Etsy shops to feature on my blog. I was totally blown away by this 1st shop owner who contacted me. This Artist is new to Etsy and is waiting for her very first sale. I introduce to you..... JacquelineJewelry



Jacqueline makes some of the most beautiful creations I have seen in a long time. She carries a large variety of items in her shop and at different price points. Something for everyone in this great shop! From Necklaces, earrings and bracelets to wine glass charms and wine toppers...you will be sure to find that one of a kind gift for that special person on your shopping list. Of course you could just splurge on yourself...Why not...your worth it!



Now a little about Jacqueline and her shop...

"I am excited to be selling my jewelry on Etsy. I live in New York, NY and work in my teeny tiny apartment on a folding tv table and sitting on my bed. I have jewelry materials all over my apartment, but have made everything ship shape by making my storage and projects part of my decor.

I work in sterling silver, gemstones, Czech glass, as well as copper and fabric. I also design home decor and whimsical, trendy pieces. All of my work is one-of-a-kind, but I do take commissions.


My designs are based on my observations of the inter-relationships of materials and color. I have explored many different concepts over the years, from the ideas of impermanence and transience to the concept of the preciousness and sacredness of the everyday. Still, I want to create pieces that are accessible to a wide audience, and hope the forms and materials I use will appeal to people on many different levels. Treating each piece as an individual work of wearable art, I create timeless jewelry meant for day into evening wear.

I have had careers in production pottery, graphic design and industrial design with a sidetrack into computer programming early on. Ever since I can remember, art and craft in some shape or form has been my passion. I am a graduate of The College of Ceramics at SUNY with a BFA in sculpture and art history, an MFA in Arizona State University in environmental design, and an MID in industrial design from Pratt Institute. A perpetual student, I am self-taught in jewelry. I have also written two books. Graphic Illustration in Black and White and Polymer Clay; Creating Functional and Decorative Objects."


Here is a photo of the Talented Jacqueline hard at work on one of her wonderful creations.

Now for the giveaway! Jacqueline will be offering this stunning sterling silver choker necklace. Isn't it just so beautiful!!

This Sterling silver choker necklace was made using a tiny wire wrapped (27mm long) jade cabochon that hangs sweetly from a 16 inch (40cm) 1mmthick silver cord with a twist clasp.
