Giveaway – Nile River Earrings

Oh my goodness, there were some great answers to last week’s contest questions, particularly about the “most unusual gift” you’ve ever received!

Some were hilarious and some were more serious, like Aik’s for example. Her most unusual gift was actually very special – a coin from the Ching-Dynasty that belonged to her Grandma!

And Carol received a gift from her amazingly thoughtful DH, that some called unusual, but it was actually the perfect gift for a lady who loves to sew!

Thank you so much to everyone for your comments and for joining in the fun.

This week’s giveaway is an adorable pair of dangle earrings that I’m calling “Nile River” – because the beads look like little pyramids! 😉


These “Nile River” Earrings feature gorgeous, dimensional, “pyramid-shaped” Czech Glass beads that are clear crystal with swirls of blue, green and pink. I’ve accented them with Swarovski Crystals in coordinating colors and all findings are sterling silver. They’re even prettier in person – with much more sparkle!

Measurements: approximately 1-1/2″ long – including the sterling silver earwires.

  6. GORGEOUS earrings!! Love the name too….puts me in mind of cool, flowing waters slipping past golden sand dunes!! So, the 5 items I would want on a desert island would be:
    1. My grown daughter, because she’s always a calming presence and we could talk girl talk!!
    2. My favorite pillow!!
    3. Some GOOD sunscreen….hate sunburns!
    4. An ice chest full of cold drinks and popsicles!!
    5. A suitcase full of good books…mystery suspense! But nothing too scary, especially set on a deserted island!

  7. It wasn’t cancelled, but I wish that Seinfield was still going!! Even the re-runs are hilarious!

  8. I love handmade jewelry but never make any myself. I would love to see articles about how you choose your beads and findings, and how you come up with your designs. I know when I like something, but always feel all thumbs when it comes to actually designing a piece!

  9. Your earrings are so beautiful. I would love to win them!
    The 5 things I would want on a desert are, my hubby (of course!), my doggie, sandwich fixings for a super sized turkey and avocado sandwich, a nice beach hut complete with bed , and a radio so I could call for help. I think I would get tired of that desert island real fast!

  10. I like your articles about crafts because I am a crafter. I like to hear about different projects you do that are not jewelry!

  11. Five things I would have on an island:
    – matches
    – supply of food
    – water
    – i-pod
