On the twelfth day of Christmas . . .

My creation

I met Julia when we both had corporate careers and no kids -- boy, does that seem like a long time ago! We worked together but also became good friends. Many Saturday mornings we'd go to antique stores and estate sales and over the years we found many great things together.

It is always fun to shop with Julia because she has an amazing design sense and impeccable taste. Her home is beyond lovely and she can put an outfit together like no one I've ever seen. She also is an insanely talented jewelry designer. Lots of people make jewelry but Julia creates things that make you feel beautiful when you put them on. Her pieces are carried by many boutiques and she also sells her jewely online .

She is really particular about quality and workmanship. In her studio they work with sterling silver, vermilion, gold-fill and 14K metals coupled with natural gem stones and freshwater pearls.

And her jewelry is really neat because it's made to be interchangeable. She are has many pendants and drops to choose from and they can be put on multiple necklaces. And her necklaces are made to layer together.

It's a pretty addictive concept.

Her hoop earrings are also amazing. You pick the metal and size of hoop you'd like and then there are many gem stones and drops that you can add to them to create a mini earring wardrobe. Super fun.

To get you started, Julia she is giving one of you the beautiful heart pendant pictured above. It's a smooth bright red glass heart pendant hand-wired on Sterling Silver of Goldfill metals.

And you can enter this giveaway two times. You can receive one entry for visiting her website and coming back and telling me what you saw that you liked, and you can get a second entry by becoming a Jewel Ya Facebook follower.

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations Janet!
