You Just Never Know...

...what will happen when you a shop (add it to your favorite sellers list) on Etsy. About a week ago, I selected Ever so Dear as a favorite shop and became the 500th person to heart her shop! Unknown to me, she was waiting eagerly for that 500th heart so that she could bless their heart with a little gift.

Well, my little gift arrived yesterday in this sweet golden (and recycled) box with deep rose ribbon


I eagerly opened it to find this lovely presentation...


of these gorgeous earrings with beautiful millefiori beads.


Diane, the creative force behind Ever So Dear, carefully and beautifully handcrafts her jewelry into lovely and unique works of art. These one of a kind pieces have a decidedly vintage look and feel and often are made from vintage materials. This lovely Nesting Necklace

has a quote from a beautiful hymn on the reverse side and would be a treasured gift for a friend or daughter who is expecting a little someone.

One of the things that I find most appealing about the jewelry that Diane crafts is the thoughtfulness that goes into each element of each piece. Another is that Diane's love of her own Creator is very often reflected in her creations in either a subtle or overt way.

If vintage and one of a kind are not your particular cup of tea, you might want to visit Twirling Vine, Diane's newest shop on Etsy, where you will find a selection of fresh and funky jewelry that just screams FUN, like these simple yet bold Green Girl earrings:


Whatever your style, I am sure you will find something that you love in one of Diane's shops. Diane, thanks so much for the lovely earrings and I am sure that with your fine reputation for beautiful and finely crafted jewelry, Twirling Vine, will soon have its own 500th before too long!

Now go out and an Etsy shop ...you never know what might happen when you do!
