a way to feel pretty... and a little giveaway

Earrings always make me feel pretty. Moreso than any other jewelry. Why i don't wear a pair every day, I have no idea. I have my standard 3 that are always in and never come out. I think the last time one of them was changed out was over a year ago.

I actually have another hole on the left side that there is no earring in, because it's in an awkward place and hurts when I sleep on it. I did find a very small silver ball that fit in there so nicely and was fine to sleep on but since I couldn't wear the back of the earring to hold it on, i bent it like a nose ring and it just stayed in like that. But it fell out after about 6 months and I haven't had the initiative to get another one yet. I should though. I really like that hole. (i'm well aware of how wrong that sounds lol)

But where oh where did I get these fabuloso earrings? Good question. I was reading my friend Lex's blog one day and realized that she had an Etsy shop where she sold her jewelry. I don't know why I hadn't ever gone to look before, but I did this time. And I found a pair that I just couldn't live without. The first one on this blog.

And then I decided that since I was buying a pair, I should just go ahead and buy another one, since her prices are so reasonable! That would be the third picture. And when I got them in the mail, she had thrown in an extra pair!!!

I absolutely LOVE all of them! They were sooo much prettier when I got them than when I even saw them in the shop, and i thought they were just beautiful there too! I apologize for the b&w but that's the only thing i was feelin when i edited these. The lighting in the bathroom is just awful hahaha!

I loved it all so much that I pretty much emailed her right away and asked her if she could make the jewelry for the wedding that I'm in this May. aaaaaaaand she's totally doing it!!!

I will be getting that this week, maybe even tomorrow! and i will definitely be posting pictures of that soon.

Buuuuuuut, until then, I have a giveaway to commence.

You can enter two different ways:
1) Go to Lex's Indelible Expressions Etsy and pick out your favorite piece of jewelry and leave me a comment telling me which one
2) Become a follower if you aren't already and leave me another comment telling me you did so! (if you're already a follower, leave a comment saying that you are already, cuz that counts too!)

I will close this giveaway on Friday night... or Saturday morning, whichever i remember first lol and then pick a winner. The winner will receive...........

a $20 gift certificate to use on anything in her shop!

There you have it! Now, go look and then leave me comments with what you like!

You KNOW I love the Beautiful Vintage earrings :)

I love funky jewelry. It really is one of my downfalls.

That first picture is so totally awesome.

So fun!

I love the Lovely Bracelet and Earrings set.

Love the pics you took of the jewelry too. She should use some of them on her Etsy page.

She does great work - thanks for sharing her site. I really like the wirework bracelet! It's very delicate and pretty.

I am already a follower so does this accomplish what you were asking?

I think I like the mother of pearl ones best. Cool giveaway!

emily February 24, 2009 at 11:18 PM  

ohhh this is fun! I love jewelry :) (although I often forget to wear it).
anyway, I couldn't decide between two but since Rachel picked one of the two, I guess I'll go with the Large teardrop hoop w/Swarvoski crystals. :) I love silver.

ps, we should hang out. I didn't make it to youth group this week OR group (gee, what a slacker), and I miss you!

The Beautiful Diamond shaped focal link, gold plated is awesome!!!


Lex the mom February 27, 2009 at 12:44 PM  

Yay! Thank to all of you for your wonderful comments! I am currently uploading more stuff today. Lots of earrings, but some other things, too!

Amanda - I'm so happy you love the earrings! It was my pleasure making them, for sure!

I also want to let you all know, I can create anything custom - if you see something you like, but wish to have a different ear wire, or if there's a pair of earrings with beads you'd like to see in a bracelet or necklace, I'm your gal! Custom is what I do.

I also dropped by to thank you, Amanda, for your congrats! Neveah is adorable! I can't wait to see her in person!

I waited until I was 27 to get my ears pierced, but now I'm too freaked out about my kids pulling on them and breaking my ear that I don't wear earrings most of the time! I really like the Gray pearls, White lotus pearls earing set though.
