Handmade Giveaway: NewFire Lava Stone Earrings by MiddleEarths Jewels

EDIT: Giveaway is officially over. Congratulations to the randomly chosen 187 commenter, Kathy Detweiler!

NewFire Lava EarringsThe NewFire lava earrings above will be a hot addition to one reader's jewelry collection, just in time for the summer solstice. Mary Anne of MiddleEarths Jewels is giving away a pair of these unique earrings from her breathtaking home across the sea on a volcanic island of Azores, Portugal. The black earthy lava stone tipped with blazing fire opal and copper Swarovski crystals are certain to melt gazes with their steamy magic.

Mary Anne taps inspiration from her surroundings and Tolkien's magnificent imagination. Her pieces often include vintage, dismantled jewelry and castoffs, anything old and forgotten but rich in faded memories of other times and worlds. She upcycles these treasures into extraordinary designs that revitalize their original beauty.
