Good news, you darling souls that are captivated by shiny jewelry as much as I. The glorious pair of handmade earrings above will belong to the luckiest one of you. Just imagine how much the sterling silver earwires with 10mm faceted fuchsia round Swarovski crystals, bali silver spacers and Impression Jasper beads on swirl headpins will sparkle even more in person.
Denise of Beaded Embellishments is offering them in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Denise is a registered nurse who works in a chemotherapy unit so the cause is near and dear to her heart. For readers that missed my recent breast cancer awareness posts, it's also very important to me. I'm tickled pink to be hosting this giveaway!
I'm also ecstatic that I own a pair of original earrings from Beaded Embellishments and know first hand how pretty they can make a girl feel. Out of 141 entries on another blog giveaway, fate chose to bestow upon me the gorgeous Tanzanite crystal earrings to the right. If it hadn't, I may have never met Denise and given you the chance to win a pair of her earrings.
Denise has been designing fashion jewelry for about 10 years. She prides herself in using quality materials including gemstones, pearls, crystals and sterling silver. Her inspiration flows from the beauty she sees in anything and everything around her. Her sister, a fellow blogger, was the first to tell her about Etsy's existence. I couldn't agree more with Denise's first impression, "Since arriving on Etsy, I have been so impressed by the people who are friendly, helpful and encouraging to me. It surprised me that even people whose shops would be in competition with what I sell are still willing to offer constructive criticism and advice to me. I love Etsy!"
Looks like she's been taking full advantage of those suggestions! Her shop is lovely.

I will be pulling a number from my random.org top hat after 11:59pm EST on October 25, 2010, and the corresponding commenter will win! Denise will contact that lucky soul for a mailing address. If she doesn't hear back from the winner within 3 days, a new number will be drawn.
