Enchanting Jewels from Starrlight Jewelry- absolutely gorgeous as always!

I recently did a large trade with Starr from Starrlight Jewelry and as always I was impressed. I opened my mailing envelope quick as could be, to find all of the items I traded for beatifully wrapped with much care and attention.

Each item I pulled out of the necklace box more beautiful than the previous, one of the best trades to date!

Gorgeous Suncatchers!

Beautiful curtain ties, perfect for my bedroom!

Last but not least, these gorgeous chandelier earrings! These are my absolute favorite part of the trade!! The first pair of earrings I have been able to wear in years due to extreme metal allergies. Starr means it when she mentions the hypoallergenic parts on her jewelry.

I traded Vegan Dish for some vegan dishes! hah

Vegan Dish makes some really awesome pottery that is lead free and food safe. I traded Vegan Dish for some of their wares, and they are even more awesome in person that I thought they could ever be!
I got 2 blue tumbler cups for my morning juice, a big serving bowl for when we have potlucks, a 4 bowl set for everyday use, and a big cereal bowl for Jessis massive cereal attacks!

Not into having vegan on your dishes (which I personally LOVE having vegan on my dishes) thats ok, Vegan Dish has another shop Vessels and Wares full of amazing pieces that dont have the VEGAN stamps on them!! Either way you win with these awesome dishes!

It has been a long long time....and there have been many a trade!

I am so far behind on posting the trades I have done, there have been so many great ones....

Check out this super cool necklace that I recently trade with JenMcCleary for!
This necklace is made from a vintage optician test lens and a variety of silver and brass watch parts. The watch parts are adhered to the lens with a clear glass-like glaze.

The necklace is even cooler in person that I could have ever imagined!

I have a few more that I will be posting shortly, but I definately want to try the items out before I review them here!

trade trade trade!!!

My latest trade was for 2 beautifully handmade mugs and a small bowl.
Alexmmr contacted me about a possible trade, and it was all uphill from there! Alex chose 2 different kinds of cookies from my shop, and I chose a new mug for me, and a new mug for Jessi,

then I found the cute little bowl to go with them!

Trade cookies for jewels hah

I hadnt done a trade in a while so when Starrlight Jewelrycontacted me about one I was stoked. We decided to trade 2 different batches of my cookies, for 3 of her beautiful necklaces. As always the photos on the internet never do artsy items justice. The necklaces I received are gorgeous, and were nicely shipped in a little jewelry box and tied with a ribbon.

The first necklace is called "Amber and Honey" and as soon as I opened it my grandmothers eyes lit up...she simply loved it. Her birthday is in November and I guess it is her birth stone color, so I tried to play it off like I knew that, and she is a happy little old lady with a beautiful necklace now.

"Moonlight" When I saw this necklace I knew that I had to have it,and I knew exactly who it was meant for! My sister that just had her first child is a very classic beauty, really into old actresses and movies. She even named my niece after Audrey Hepurn. Her birthday is also in November, its crazy how these things all fall into place!

"Purple Passion Heart" Last but definately not least is this gorgeous somewhat gothic looking necklace that I knew would be perfect for Jessi, my model, best friend, and closest companion. Jessi wears a lot of meaningful jewelry, and I thought I could add a beautiful piece like this to the collection for her! These are some really beautiful pieces handcrafted by a fellow vegan etsian!
