Handmade Trove: Amethyst Heart Earrings by Beaded Embellishments

I won a couple giveaways before I left for Las Vegas, so I was excitedly expecting to come home to some good snail mail and not just bills and advertisements. Discovering a package from Denise of Beaded Embellishments in the mail pile was quite a pleasant surprise. We were introduced in September 2010 when I won her Tanzanite crystal earrings. She then volunteered to become my very first jewelry giveaway sponsor, and we've been reading each other's handmade blogs ever since.

Amethyst Heart EarringsYou may recall from a few Fridays ago that I was searching Etsy for a pair of amethyst heart earrings to match my new February birthstone bracelet. Well, Denise made me the honored recipient of one of her random acts of kindness and sent me these lovely earrings as a birthday gift!! They came wrapped so creatively in a piece of scrapbook paper that matched her pretty earring hang card. She even included a 3M Anti-Tarnish Strip. All I have to do is place it near the sterling silver earrings in an enclosed area such as a jewelry box and it'll provide up to six months of tarnish protection. Isn't that neat?!

Denise is such a sweetheart and the passion in her designs shows. Take it from me, wearing her fashion beaded jewelry will make you make feel beautiful.
