Our New Sponsor and a Giveaway!

by Jane Windham on February 17, 2013

coral and turquoise necklace 064Leo and I would like to introduce our newest sponsor-Allison & Lizzy Jewelry!

Our good friend Herb has been making handcrafted jewelry for a few months now and has been very successful at selling his items locally.  Recently he opened an Etsy shop and became a sponsor of our blog. To celebrate, we’re having a giveaway! Herb has donated this beautiful red coral and turquoise colored drop necklace as a gift to one of our lucky readers. coral and turquoise necklace 055

This 20 inch necklace is strung with high quality 49 strand beading wire to ensure that it lays smoothly.

coral and turquoise necklace Here you can see the detail of the silver part of the necklace. Herb uses silver plate findings that will not tarnish because they’re coated with a polymer.

coral and turquoise necklace The red coral is such a beautiful shade of red, and I’ve been tempted to wear it myself! Love the combination of the red and the turquoise! BUT, we’re going to give it away to one of you!

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is to visit  Herb’s Etsy shop Allison & Lizzy Jewelry. Look around and leave a comment telling us what item was your favorite. That’s all you have to do to enter.

By the way, Herb named his shop after his two granddaughters! He can custom make anything for you if you need a particular color to compliment an outfit.  And if you need a specific length, he can do that for you, too.  All of his work is guaranteed. If you order something and you are not completely satisfied, he will refund your money. The prices listed in his Etsy shop include shipping.

So, go ahead and visit his shop, but remember to come back and leave us a comment to be automatically entered in the giveaway. We’ll choose a winner at 5 p.m. EST Friday, February 22.

This giveaway is now closed and the lucky winner was Sandy M.

The giveaway necklace is absolutely beautiful, red is my favorite color. I went and visited Herbs Etsy shop. My 2 yr. old granddaughter was sitting with me and she seen the valentine heart necklace; she said “Charity’s heart”, her name is Charity and she liked it. So my first purchase from Herbs Etsy shop would have to be that heart necklace. All of his jewelry is absolutely gorgeous. I bookmarked his site for future purchases.

I really love the Giveaway, my favourite combination..but in the etsy shop, I so admire the

and you could wear it any occasion. In fact all the necklaces are eminently wearable,
it’s going to be hard to chose when I visit Herb’s shop!

Regena Fickes February 18, 2013 at 5:25 pm

This is beautiful, but then I visited the Etsy shop and saw Vintage Valentine. I cannot get it yet, but it is on my list. HOWEVER, tourquoise is my favorite and this lovely one calls to me. Thanks for the chance.

Beautiful jewelry!! Loved the Night Out, Lovely Leopard, Just Add Your LBD, … All are beautiful but especially the black and silver necklaces. Being a true TIGER fan, I avoid red with black even though those were pretty. :)
How fantastic to support other exciting and new artists, Jane & Leo!! Y’all are just the best!


Mary Ann Eckles February 18, 2013 at 8:31 pm

I love the Red and Black Beauty. As a die-hard Gamecock, it comes close to the colors I like to wear.


Cynthia February 21, 2013 at 9:31 pm

Well, these are all just lovely, Herb! I used to manage the fine jewelry department at a very well known nationwide department store, too, so I am giving you my honest opinion, here! The coral and turquoise is exquisite and someone is going to be a very lucky winner, indeed! If I had to pick one item from your Etsy shop, it would be the Vintage Valentine. Nice 23″ length, too. Keep up the good work! Made in the USA :) Love that.


emily willingham February 22, 2013 at 10:51 am

all the necklaces were so beautiful……i think my very favorite one is the ‘Elephant Will Never Forget You’ – love the turquoise in that one as well! thanks for hosting the give-away, Jane and Leo.


Helen February 22, 2013 at 11:09 am

Jane, wow! It’s hard to choose just one. First of all, I’d love to win the give away. I’m also loving the “Red & Black Beauty”. Thanks for the excitement of the giveaway. Best wishes to Herb.


Sue Matthews February 22, 2013 at 6:47 pm

Love all the jewelry.
Thanks for the giveaway!


Sandy M. March 6, 2013 at 10:43 pm

Being the lucky winner of the coral and turquoise necklace, I received it in the mail yesterday. It is just as pretty as the picture shows. I cannot wait to wear it. Thank you.
