Let Me Introduce You To......CAROLINE GRACE JEWELRY....oh and how about a 20% DISCOUNT TOO!
Happy Wednesday my fellow fashion divas! Today I am sooooo excited to tell you all about a jewelry designer I have recently discovered. Blends (that means blog friends!), meet Caroline Grace Jewelry.
During the holiday season, I participated in a "secret santa swap" with a group of ladies I met on Facebook. One of my friends received a piece of jewelry that was handmade (and personalized!) by Caroline. When I saw the photos, I could not believe how beautiful and well made the piece was. Of course I immediately asked for more info. Lucky us! Caroline sells her jewelry on ETSY! I high tailed it over there and oh.my. So many pieces and so much to choose from. A friendship was immediately forged, this Shopaholic has never met a piece of jewelry she didn't love! :-)
Some "eye candy" for you - several of my favorite pieces.
MIRANDA Necklace in Sterling Silver with Pearls & Swarovski Crystal Pendant:
DIANNE Necklace (bracelet also available) in Sterling Silver with Swarovski Pearls & Aqua Quartz:
NAMETAG Charm Necklace in Sterling Silver & 14kt Gold:
VERONICA Necklace in Gold w/Swarovski Crystal Pendant:
GINNY Bracelet in Sterling Silver with Colorful Freshwater Pearls (note - can you imagine how this would look with all the Lilly Pulitzer - gorgeous!)
VANESSA Earrings in Sterling Silver:
Please go check out LuluJewels on Etsy - click HERE for the link to Caroline's store.
More stuff I should tell you - all of the jewelry (unless noted in the listing) is handmade with the finest quality genuine semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls, genuine Swarovski crystal, solid Sterling silver, 14kt Gold or gold filled findings. Each piece is guaranteed for LIFE. Free sizing is included, you can request your necklace or bracelet longer or shorter than it may be listed, such a great feature for those of us with bigger wrists or short necks! Most pieces can be made in silver or gold, even though they may only be pictured in one choice on the site.
Feel free to message Caroline via the "CONVO" system (which just means send an email, I only learned this today) with any questions or special requests.
NOW - THE DISCOUNT! Here are your options for the 20% DISCOUNT! Option #1 - Place the order, pay as usual with paypal, and leave a note in either the paypal payment or etsy order that says they are a follower of the SHOPAHOLIC IN ALABAMA blog, and the 20% will be REFUNDED back to you via paypal. Option #2 - If you prefer to get the discount up front, convo Caroline (email on Etsy) before placing the order, and the price of your item(s) will be adjusted prior to placing the order. Again, be sure to mention you saw the promotion on SHOPAHOLIC IN ALABAMA to receive your discount! Don't delay - this discount is good through January 23, 2010.
While shopping, do remember that VALENTINE'S DAY and MOTHER'S DAY are both coming soon! If you're like me, you have ZERO shame about buying your own gift and then telling the DH "look what you bought me for Valentine's Day"! This is the only way to be certain you get what you actually WANT. Just think, we're actually saving them the time and hassle of shopping! :-) I think it's also wonderful to support an artist, rather than purchasing items that are mass produced and available to everyone. Another benefit, you certainly won't see the same piece on another member of your country club or sorority!
Enjoy! I want so many things, I'm not sure how I will choose! Be sure to comment and let me know your favorites, and what you purchased! I can't wait to hear all about it, after all, I prefer to not stimulate the economy by myself!
A special THANK YOU to Caroline Grace Jewelry for offering this to my readers! ♥
p.s. I should state that I am not compensated for telling you about this - I just love the designs and wanted to share them with you! ♥
