Jewellery Giveaway!!! From the lovely Angelene

Charm Bracelet with Pearls and Swarovski Crystal on Sterling Silver- The Love Story

I'm excited to be featuring a giveaway from one of my favourite etsy sellers Angelene. I think I'm too embarrassed to admit how many pieces I have from her!

I've got very particular tastes (you could say I'm difficult, but I prefer to think of it as having a defined style), and I just love Ange's jewellery- particularly the elegant simple silver pieces. I don't know how I managed without the silver bow necklace she made for me, as well as this new favourite- I love it (and I'm not usually prone to enthusiasm):

Cultured Pearl Necklace

5-Question Mini Interview with Angelene:

How and why did you start selling on etsy?
I started selling on etsy after a few years running jewellery parties as the main way of selling my work. The community feel of etsy, particularly the teams, make it more than just a selling experience.

Metal and Sterling Earrings- Lotus Flower

How would describe the concept behind your store?
My store is a bit eclectic and doesn't really have a 'concept' as such - I make a range of things, depending on my mood, style influences of the moment, and aim to make something for everyone. I suppose the common theme of my store is elegance - I love organic shapes and sweeping lines.

Pearl Swarovski Crystal and Charm Bracelet- Belle of the Ball

Do you have a favourite item that you almost hope someone won't buy?
Nope... because I know I can recreate it for myself! At the moment my favourite things are Merry's Choice because I'm obsessed with Laurell K Hamilton's work and these Gaia 2 earrings.

What do you do when you're not etsying?
Lots! Working fulltime as a policy advisor to government, running a home spray tanning business, making jewellery, organising my engagement party, thinking about a wedding (I'm shopping for dresses this weekend! and trying to catch up with friends.

Custom Made Ring in Sterling Silver- Twig

Tell us something surprising that we don't know about you...
I'm pretty much an open book... but you probably don't know that i've been on a magazine cover! Funny story really! Details are on my blog...
