 julie's signature bracelet

Today I'm partnering with Julie Lorusso from Monkey Grass Hill and having my very first giveaway.  Julie is one of the nicest, sweetest bloggers I have met and writes a fantastic blog that chronicles the goings on at her gorgeous home and garden.  In addition to that, she is a very talented jewelry designer.  Her designs are simple and have an organic quality that I love. 

Now all you have to do to enter is go to her website here and take a look around.  The prize is her signature piece, a bracelet made of freshwater pearls with a sterling clasp and a healing stone of your choice.  OR you can apply the price of this bracelet to any other piece you like.  She also does custom designs and she makes men's jewelry too.  She has made my son some beautiful healing pendants and bracelets.  I don't know if you believe in the power of healing stones or not but I do.  One of the great things Julie does is explain the healing properties of the stones she uses in her designs.  Wearing her jewelry is not only beautiful, but empowering.

So go look around and come back and leave me a comment saying which piece you like and you will be entered into the contest.  You do not have to become a  follower of my blog or hers to enter.    If you comment anonymously then you need to include your name.  The winner will be chosen on Friday, September 3rd.  They say gifting someone a crystal is like offering a healing.  Thank you Julie, for this offer.

  2. Dear Janet, What lovely pieces of modern jewellery and very clearly made by a very talented and creative person. How generous of you to have a 'give away' and what fun! Sadly, please do not include me as I hardly know where I am at present and I should hate any winnings [some hope!!] to go astray.

  14. What selfless readers you have. i most certainly don't live too far away and would love to be entered in the giveaway.

    After far too much time spent lusting over at her web site, I think my favorite is the blue opal on the gold chain.

    Nice giveaway Miss J.

  18. Yes, you are completely right---she is very, very talented. And I like to know the meaning of the different stones as well. Please "count me in" on the drawing.

    P.S. I keep thinking that if she made her signature bracelet with blue pearls and a peridot stone...it would be magnificent! I might have to contact her to make me one of those....

  19. How much do you love owning "one of a kinds?" I loved her signature bracelet, but also loved the "2 in 1" bracelet made out of the vintage necklace. I'm thinking about putting a little gold in my fall wardrobe...

  20. I took one look at the signature bracelet you've pictured and my brain went "ding!" I love pearls. Oh gawd I love pearls. And I especially love pearls done this simply. Your friend makes some beautiful jewelry. Oh there it goes again, "ding!" Gotta tamp down the "want it" bell, very distracting!!!!

  24. Can't resist the signature bracelet. I'm not a huge jewelry person beyond a few things I wear every day, but the bracelet spoke to me. I've already visited the site, and it looks like there will be a little Christmas shopping from here for my SIL and niece going on there, too. Many thanks!

  37. So lovely! Would love a signature bracelet with a healing crystal. Thanks for thinking of us.

  38. I can imagine the varied heft of the stones, and the luscious clack-click as I coil a bracelet in my palm...the pieces are truly a fine balance of earth and enchantment! After passing through the whole gallery of favorite stones, the green tones sing out to me; perhaps a lucky peridot sparkle to anchor the elegant signature bracelet. Thank you for sharing.
