Aah, I'm a real sucker for earrings. Especially when they're shiny, dangling crystals. Because of this, I definitely love the Crystal Briolette Cluster Ciara earrings. (Is it cheating to use a piece you featured in this post? I hope not, because those earrings are just so killer!!)

I love the Ciara earrings!!! But I also love the Leanne Earrings! Hard choice :P

Mmmm I am digging the Haley necklace, but since it wouldn't be in my gift card budget, I love the Sybil earrings. I love how earrings can subtly enhance my look with a hint of color.

Amy said...

All their items are gorgeous, it is so hard to pick a favorite. I think though, I love the Celine necklace the best.

Wonderful giveaway, Sal! Thanks for having it. :)

I have ONE bracelet. ONE. I have pretty small wrists, and over the years I've just never thought about adorning them. Lately I've become charmed by the bracelet and I have decided that I must address this severe wardrobe deficit.

My choices:

The Kelly Bracelet
http://www.thebeaddreamer.com/Kelly-Bracelet-pr-236.html

Italian Lire Bracelet (Marcella)

http://www.thebeaddreamer.com/Marcella-Bracelet-pr-200.html

Both are gorgeous!! Thanks for turning me on to this talented desiger!! :)

Karisa Tell said...

Hmmm...too many choices! I think I like the Melanie necklace best. I don't have any orange necklaces in my repertoire yet.

I love the tamara bracelet. irishdancer15@gmail.com

sarah said...

Wow, I can't pick just one! My name is Sarah, and I LOVE the Sara necklace. I also really like the Celia necklace and earrings.

Plin said...

Everything is beautiful, but I am captivated by the Celine necklace. I love the way the artist used a combination of materials--buttons, crystal beads, brass--to create a piece that is simple but texturally interesting. The vintage feel of the repurposed buttons and filigree is also appealing.

Plus, it's a great length to work with so many of my favorite outfits! I desperately need more longer necklaces, and I've fallen in love with this one.

Just an FYI - the images on the main page didn't load for me, but I'm using the latest version of Chrome. Worked fine in IE 8. Probably Chrome's fault, but might be worth looking into.

evanadine said...

there are so many amazing pieces on that site, its hard to choose just one!
i think my favorites are the Gail Earrings, for their understatedness.
otherwise, i also love the Lisa and Allison earrings!

Gorgeous stuff. I'm leaning toward the Melanie necklace, because I've had a thing for orange lately. I also appreciate how the website is sorted by warm, cool and neutral tones - a different way to shop.

I'm going to say the Alyssa earrings, though, it's a draw between those and the Sigrid necklace! Gorgeous pieces!

I adore the Nia bracelet. I love the colors. It's bright without being excessive, and noticeable, but not annoying as heck to wear because it's got all these dangly bits whacking you all day.

I'd like to wear more bracelets so I would get the Lola bracelet.

Thalia necklace. Plays into the key trend, but not too heavily. It makes its own statement! damibe@gmail.com

Leah Felicity said...

She has such beautiful work -- it's hard to choose! I'd get the Imogene Earrings, I think, because they're elegant but still fun. The texture rocks. :)

The Sigrid necklace is so understated, yet so lovely! I think mosaic jewelry is some of the prettiest available and it complements almost everything. Thanks for this giveaway!

It would have to be the Gabriella necklace. I love it, and I love the name...

If that goes over budget what with international shipping, I would happily settle for the Willow Earrings!

Atheist Mama said...

I would love to own those sylvia earrings! Actually...honestly...I love *everything*, but I currently only own 1/2 of a pair of earrings (I lost one of them but refuse to give up hope of ever finding it...so it's a keeper).

I used to have "stretched" ears (00 gauge) and even though it's been over a year they are still too big for regular earrings...so I have to wear ones that can't fall out!

These would be perfect!

Bethanne said...

I have TOO MANY earrings. Painful as it is to admit it... so I would spring for the Solange necklace or the Fern necklace. The Fern necklace tugs at me a bit more because I'm a redhead and love those burnished gold pieces.
