Beautiful Jewelry Giveaway


This past week, Sweet as Sugar Cookies passed the 900 followers mark AND passed the 500 followers mark on Facebook. Whoo-hoo!!! You are all awesome! Thank you for all your support, your sweet comments, and the wonderful treats you link up each week to Sweets for a Saturday. As a "thank you" I've decided to have a giveaway that I'm sure you're all going to love.

My good friend, Stacy, recently started her own jewelry business on Etsy called "Quintessential Elements." She originally began making jewelry for women and then expanded to men's jewelry upon the request of her boyfriend. Her creations, which use materials like wood, gems, shells, bones, leather, and fine metals, are totally elegant, modern, earthy, unique, and naturally beautiful.

Here's a few of my personal favorites:

The Eclipse Men's Horn Necklace

Women's Lapis Lazuli and Sterling Silver Necklace

And . . . here is what one lucky Sweet as Sugar Cookies reader will win:



It's a Rose Quartz Gem Pendant on a Sterling Silver Chain. It comes in oxidized and non-oxidized (i.e. shiny) versions. Did I mention that I am totally jealous of whoever gets this pretty bauble? After seeing it, I wanted one for myself too.

  11. Absolutely beautiful jewelry! It was very hard to pick just one, but if I had to, it would be the moonstoon drop necklace. It would go with everything from a dressy outfit to jeans and t-shirt. I love to wear jewelry that is different and is able to go with whatever I am wearing that day. Necklaces are my favorite way to add that something extra to an outfit :)

  18. I visited Quintessential Elements, and my favorite necklace was the Lapis Lazuli and Sterling Silver. I love the silver and the design. It looks sturdy, but feminine. I like to wear earrings the most, but I usually wear a necklace too, bracelets sometimes. I feel more "put together" when I have on my jewelry.
