A.W.E. Jewelry Review and Giveaway



Currently, I'm in a period that I've dubbed "earring transition." With my new haircut, many of my old standbys now look bizarre, and pairs I haven't worn in ages are starting to come into rotation. I'm also on the lookout for potential new pairs, so when Deb from A.W.E. Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry dropped a note to see if we could collaborate, I was thrilled!

I was sent these Scroll Post Earrings in copper to review and keep*:



I am trying to expand my metallic horizons beyond silver, and these lovely copper earrings are a marvelous bridging piece. They're sturdy but lightweight, beautifully designed, and, as you can see graceful and unique when worn. I'm in love!

A.W.E. Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry has been kind enough to supply another pair of Scroll Post Earrings for me to give away! And the winner can pick her favorite style and metal. Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Visit A.W.E. Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry to check out the gorgeous designs.
  2. Follow A.W.E. Jewelry on Twitter, like A.W.E. Jewelry on Facebook, follow the A.W.E. blog, or sign up for their e-newsletter (sign up in the left rail). You MUST do one of these two to enter.
  3. Leave a comment on this post telling us if you like scroll style one, scroll style two, or scroll style one in sterling silver, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.
  4. Cross your fingers!
  5. Note: This giveaway is open internationally, but international winners will be responsible for any customs fees.

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, October 9, 2011. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to all, but international winners will be responsible for any customs fees.

Good luck!

I liked their work on FB. What a great pair of earings. I rarely wear anything I consider "dangly" without it being lost in my hair, but I think the play of the swirls in the style 2 wouldn't rip my hair out.

I loooove the copper style 2. It helps that I've been going through a copper obsession - everything from my makeup to my toenails are copper colored right now!
