A Jewelry Party and A Giveaway!


Last Thursday night, I hosted a wine and cheese party featuring Silpada Designs Jewelry.
We had fun trying on all the jewelry, sipping wine and just hanging out.

My friend Gail who is a Silpada sales representative arrived earlier and set up all her fantastic jewelry on my dining room table. I had an opportunity to take a few pictures before my guests arrived.

This is actually two necklaces. One is the pendent hanging from a leather cord, the other is a gorgeous turquoise necklace with black onyx and crystal accents. My friend Maureen ended up with both of these! I don't blame her, as they are both beautiful.

Another display of two separate necklaces. I thought these would be perfect for the summer. The bronze tones of the stones would be gorgeous with a tan and white blouse!

These necklaces are so versatile and easily layered together.

All of Silpada Jewelry is hand crafted by artisans out of .925 sterling silver, enhanced only by pure copper. I like the fact that the company was founded by two woman who work with artisans all over the world to design and create their collection.

The jewelry I ordered came today! I cannot wait to wear this lovely crystal necklace.
How gorgeous is this!?

I also received these two sterling silver bracelets.

These earrings are for Ashley's birthday. (shhhh)

And this pretty little necklace is for someone else's birthday!

Isn't this necklace gorgeous?
My friend Gail has generously donated it for my giveaway!

Here is a closer look.

So for my giveaway, here is what you have to do:

Come back and leave a comment about which piece of jewelry is your favorite.

As an added bonus, if you do see a piece of jewelry that you can't live without, mention Vignette Design when ordering and Gail will give you a 10% discount off the price.

That's it! Contest will end June llth.

Good Luck!
