Earring Giveaway and a Tip

I have been trying to do one giveaway a month.  This time it is a pair of earrings that I made.  I dabble with jewelry making off and on.  I can get addicted to buying beads. 

To enter the giveaway just leave a comment so I know you want to participate.  Please DON’T  feel like you have to become a follower!   You can enter whether you follow or not. 


I like to make earrings, bracelets and necklaces.

I hate to admit that I watch the Bachelor/Bachelorette, but I do.   One of the girls on the show had a necklace that I loved.  She was the one whose husband died( I think in a plane crash) and I believe Jason surprised her by letting her visit her son on a beach.  Once again not sure if it was for her birthday or her son’s birthday.  Anyway, I tried to copy her necklace.  It was a multi colored and multi strand necklace with a large silver round pendant.

I wore my look alike necklace today and thought I would share some photos of it  I took the  photos of myself in the mirror so the “D” is backward.  I made the pendant with metal silver clay and stamped a “D” in it.  I had my son press his thumb into the clay to make a thumbprint.  The “D” is for David.  I don’t remember what the inspiration necklace had on the pendant.  Maybe nothing at all.  It was just big and silver. 



I like to put these hook clasps on the pendants so that they are removable and can be worn on different necklaces.


Here is my tip.  I found a product that seems to be helping me with my new age of 40.  The corner of my eyes seem dark and tired these days.  I don't like concealer because  it settles in my wrinkles and I am not big fan of base makeup.  I use a little bit of Bare Minerals powder for foundation.  I found this stuff at Ulta.  It seems to help and it doesn’t cake under my eyes, settle into wrinkles or feel heavy.   So what’ your beauty secret?


When you leave your comment  let us know or  just comment that you want the earrings. 

Thanks for participating.  Giveaway will end Sunday, July 25th at 5:00 central time.
