The Blushing Violet jewelry Review and Giveaway

I’m so excited to be able to present our very first giveaway hosted by one of my favorite Work At Home Mom’s (WAHM). The Blushing Violet jewelry is run by Suzie,  a mom based out of New Brunswick, Canada. She specializes in one-of-a-kind homemade jewelry. I first discovered The Blushing Violet jewelry through a giveaway and instantly fell in love with her streamlined and unique jewelry. I don’t tend to like the big, chunky jewelry that you normally find in shops, and was thrilled to find someone making such streamlined and simple pieces. The first time I saw her peapods, I knew I had to have one.  When I was finally able to order one, I was impressed by how easy she was to work with and how quickly it arrived. Since she is based in Canada, it can take up to 2 weeks to ship, but it is so worth the wait.
My very first pendant.

Blushing Violet not only makes pea pod necklaces and earrings, she also makes tree necklaces, children’s earrings, ornaments, beaded bracelets, bookmarks, and pretty much any custom creation you can think of. They truly are perfect for Christmas, Birthday, Valentine’s, and Mother’s Day presents. When I approached her with the idea of making a tree based off of the Tree of Gondor from the Lord of the Rings for my mother-in-law, she rose to the occasion and made something truly beautiful and unique:
The Tree of Gondor
Both of my sisters, my sister-in-law, my mother-in-law, and a close friend now all have pieces that I purchased for them, and I’ll admit I’ve purchased one more for myself. I love how open she is to listening to crazy thoughts (like the Tree of Gondor) and how meticulous she is in her creations (I know she made at least one trial of the Tree before she made the final one). I recommend her to everyone who asks about my pieces and will continue to do so as long as The Blushing Violet jewelry is in business.
Custom Family Tree made for my Sister-in-Law.
Starting today, the Blushing Violet jewelry and several other vendors are offering an auction with prices on the items well below retail! If you bid, Blushing Violet is offering a $15 gift certificate giveaway!  Make sure to check it out here.  It runs until January 27, so make sure to look at it soon!

Suzie was kind enough to also offer a custom pea pod necklace or $15 gift certificate to one of our readers! The giveaway starts now and will end in 2 weeks on February 5, 2014 at 11:59 pm.
