A Gem of an Etsy Shop

I dealt with two extremely heavy cases at work last week, so I didn’t have the energy to pick the Pomfret winner on Friday. My apologies! The winner is #27, Maureen! Mo, email me at thelunchboxdiaries[at]gmail[dot]com and I’ll put you in contact with Kim!

Okay, I have more jewelry to talk about today. I’ll be honest, I thought Will readers be annoyed that I just talked about Kim’s line, now I want to talk about Diane’s line? 

I came to the conclusion that:

1. It’s my blog and I’ll talk about whatever the hell I want.

2. The point of this blog is to share my thoughts, likes, and dislikes…and what girl doesn’t want to know about cute, affordable jewelry?

That said…

I’m so excited to start a series of giveaways for you guys! I met Diane of Rings and Necklaces last month at the Richmond Home and Garden Show, and I pretty much fell in love with her instantly. She’s hands down, one of the cutest women I’ve ever met.


sorry for the iphone blur

I bought a few pieces that day, and we somehow ended up talking about growing her online presence, so she can stay home on the weekends. Diane does shows almost every weekend to showcase her amazing jewelry, but let’s be honest, homegirl wants to spend some time with her hubby!

Because she’s genuinely kind, and I honestly love her jewelry, I offered to introduce her on my blog at no cost (she did give me a bracelet, though 😉 ). I suggested doing a giveaway, and she said, I can do better than that!

Screen shot 2014-03-03 at 11.02.53 AMI met up with her yesterday and she offered up all this jewelry to give away to my readers! What?! 

So, in the upcoming weeks, I’ll have one or two Rings and Necklaces pieces to give away at the bottom of most posts. I also plan on doing a giveaway or two on Instagram, so make sure you’re following along!

To kick this week off, I’m giving away two of Diane’s Maltese Cross Medallion bangles.

    That starfish bracelet though…. I have starfish earrings from Stella and Dot that would match perfectly, and I am praying to the blog gods that you give that bracelet away to MEEEEE!!!! #desperate

    I’m totally going through a bracelet phase right now and I esp love the ones in the top left and bottom right :)

    Diane and her jewelry look wonderful. I tried to click on the facebook link; but I got a thumbs down. I would love to be entered in the contest and to follow her on Facebook. There is nothing better than helping out an independent, creative retailer.
