I love my birthday. I always have. I love that it's at the beginning of my favorite season, spring. And well, I have to admit I love that it's a day in which I KNOW there will be cake. Because the MAIN requirement even above gifts, for my birthday, is cake. Preferably chocolate.
So yes, this coming Saturday (the 26th) I will turn 36 "years young"! :)
And I'm even more excited because a very lovely lady by the name of Jaclyn, has offered up some beautiful earrings as my "gift" to one of you, for my birthday!
Feast your eyes on these pretties! Aren't they simply "GORGE"?!? And you should know that the significance of their blue-ish color is because the birthstone for March is Aquamarine. I just adore them and wish I cut decorate my lobes with them, but alas they are for someone else, like YOU. They would also make a wonderful gift for someone you love.
Here's a short description from Jaclyn about these gems:
These earrings are made with a variety of beads, including dyed freshwater pearls in a beautiful navy, pale blue glass Swarovski beads, powder blue faceted glass rondelles and a bright blue faceted glass bead with AB coating, which gives it that beautiful rainbow irridescence. The shaggy, cluster earrings have silver-toned findings and hang about 1 3/4 inches long.
And Jaclyn's Etsy shop, Jaclyn1423, is full of many other beautiful earrings as well as necklaces, bracelets and rings full of "whimsy and upcycled beauty and sparkle and shine." She also crafts signature necklaces called "Joey's Hot Dogs" to benefit Autism Speaks, in honor of her brother who is Autistic . So not only is she talented but she also has a big heart. Thanks so much to my sweet friend Erin for introducing us!
