ENTER TO WIN A CUSTOM PERUVIAN OPAL NECKLACE!!

(scroll past the picture to find out how.)

I am not a stone gal, but I have always been blown away by the Peruvian Opal.  I have never seen a stone look as vibrant or pure.  Several months ago, I picked out a large batch from a couple who finds them, mines them, and turns them into little pieces of art. I am on the cusp of transforming each one into a one-of-a-kind design.  To kick it off, we're doing a GIVEAWAY. The winner gets to pick their favorite opal and I will design a special necklace just for them.  Yay!! There are several ways TO ENTER:

---> Comment on this post letting us know your favorite betsy & iya piece.

Winner will be randomly chosen and announced next Monday, January 30th. Happy Monday to you! xo~betsy ***Song of the Moment: Cold Feet, by Lost Lander*** <<Legend says that Peruvian opals take the tension out of communication and help ideas flow freely. They soften the impact of stress from the outside world and can help one to release the trauma of old wounds. They facilitates facing the future with a tranquil healing nature. This stone is reported to be good for quieting the mind and as an aid to sleep.>>  *info found on bernardine.com/gemstones*

These stones ARE amazing and I also have always been drawn to them. Also love what you do and your graceful ways. I would love to have one of your custom necklaces. I always check this blog and I can’t tell you how many times your creative energy has inspired me to just do. Far too often amazing ideas are left alone because life gets busy, blah blah… But seeing people who can turn their visions into such beauty things, like you do, is what’s up!!

Do I really have to mention one?? I have at least six that rock my world! My absolute favorite would be the Brilliant Beetle Wing earrings.
