We have a winner!

Ms. moushka's name was pulled out of the hat by my husband, Eric tonight, so she may choose anything from the Adorn Adorn Me Jewelry store at Etsy to use it towards.

Congratulations, moushka!! Your gift cert is in the (e-)mail, so we'll get this going for you!

A little Thank You graphic made from a photo taken when my husband and I went to the Botanical Garden and Butterfly show at the Insectarium in Montreal. The most beautiful butterflies I've ever seen where there, flying all around us. I want to thank you all so very, very much for participating, and many thanks for your kind words about our jewelry!

Until next time. :)

Meet Adorn Me jewelry's Mascot, Buddy!

Introducing our little toddler Shih Tzu puppy, Buddy. He's been making life even more fun and interesting around here with his sweet cuddles, playful nature, googly eyes, sweet smile and adorable face. Ha! No bias here!

Buddy is just over 3 months old and as sweet as could be. Aside from his adorableness, Shih Tzus are known for their almost non-shedding, low-allergenic coat -- which is important to me, since I have had animal allergies since childhood. No problems with Buddy, thankfully. But for those of you who do have allergies and are concerned, first, he doesn't seem to shed, but also, I use a very good foaming hand sanitizer before making and packing each piece of jewelry we sell.

Now, onto the earrings! We have a cute new design in the store: Birdie in a Basket - Whimsical Birds in Nest Baskets Earrings.

I'm a total bird person when it comes to art and design, and these little simply-designed birdies in nest baskets caught my eye immediately. The findings are a very nice quality tarnish resistant silver plate over brass. Above them, on silver plated jump rings, are little green and red glass beads that kind of look like berries. They hang from silver plated ear wires, and an extra pair of wires comes with them, since plating can wear off over time. You can wear them with the birdies facing you, or away from you, as they do not face the same direction, which is how I prefer it, myself. You can find them here.

You may find other new designs, not shown here, at our Adorn Me Jewelry at Etsy store. Come see. :)

Vicki Diane's famous (at Etsy anyway) personality treasuries.

So, the fabulous Vicki Diane, an artist friend and Etsy Treasury Team teammate, makes these great Artists of Etsy Exposed treasuries. Her aim is to give each seller a face, because often our customers never see who we are or what we look like. It personalizes things more, I think. She's this very vibrant, beautiful minx who just seems to enjoy life in ways one rarely sees. Vicki has included me in her latestArtists Exposed treasury, which you can see below. My fellow teammate, Nubahar, from BaharCollection, is in there, too, looking beautiful.

In other news, right now, we're having a sale for mailing list members only -- 25% off and free shipping any place in the U.S. In order to participate, you'll need to sign up for our mailing list. You can do so right here. As always, we invite you to visit our Adorn Me Jewelry at Etsy store.
