Blog Giveaway from Etsy Featured Seller: essentials.etsy.com

Meet essentials.etsy.com, a talented artist on etsy!

What Makes you Tick?
* Hmm. Good friends, good conversation, good food. I enjoy being with people - it allows me to sit down and recharge and remember the nice things about life.

How did you get interested in what you create?
* I sorta fell into it. One day I decided to borrow my dad's pliers and cutters and fiddle with some beads and wire, and I guess that's how it's all started. I only began selling what I make when I realised that no matter how pretty I think something is or how much I liked them, there was no way I could keep everything for myself!

What is the last book you read?
* The Laughter of Dead Kings by Elizabeth Peters. It's the latest in her Vicky Bliss series - I started reading her books since back in high school and have been waiting for eons for this latest book!

If we looked in your refrigerator right now, what would we see?
* 2 bottles of wine, yoghurt, Philadelphia cream cheese, eggs and OJ.

What is your favorite quote?
"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; What is essential is invisible to the eye." - From The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry


In honor of the feature, essentials has agreed to a lovely giveaway!

The lynette earrings, a value of $18.00!

These simple yet stunning drop earrings feature different delicately colored gemstones on sterling silver. From bottom to top:-

* Aquamarine teardrops. Wear aquamarine for maginc, power, protection and healing.
* 2 labradorite buttons for power.
* Rose quartz faceted rounds for love.
* Garnet faceted rounds for luck, money, love and healing.
* Red coral rounds for healing and power.

I absolutely love those Merlot earrings. I guess because they also have my birthstone, peridot. But I love the ruby aventurine in them, also. And someone evidently just bought my second item, a bracelet I loved. So I guess the other item would be the Peacock earrings with garnet and freshwater pearls.
