Purple-licious LOVE and a Book Giveaway

I just LOVE purple... really, any shade of purple... light, dark, rich or flirty... I love 'em all!  So imagine my pure delight when my good friend Kathy asked me to design a custom set for an upcoming convention she's attending.  It's an all woman convention so I unleashed my ferocious purple power and viola! (Side Note:  I also love autumn, thus the theme of my jewelry models lately... please pardon the stem) ;)

I also wanted to share with you an Awesome Giveaway!  One of my good blogger friends Lori Anderson was just published in a new book, Making Elegant Jewelry.  To celebrate the release of the book, Lori's giving away a copy on her blog over at The Hivehttp://creatingthehive.com/blog-post/25922/beading-book-giveaway-making-elegant-jewelry

I would LOVE to win her book, but I'd be happy for you if you did too... honestly I would, right after I cried in my cup of coffee... but I'd get over it, someday. ;)  To enter Lori's giveaway, click here to go to her blog post.  Take a look at the gorgeous necklace she made for the book and leave her a comment!  Good luck to you (and me too, but more to you)!

Have a terrific week! {Hugs!}

GORGEOUS. Where does your friend live again? I mean her physical address. I'm not GOING there or anything. I'm just curious when she won't be home and that necklace will be. What?

That set is beautiful!

Purple isn't normally one of my favorite colors, but it seems to be really popular in the stores this season...and I'm really liking it! I'm thinking I'm going to have to add something purple to my fall wardrobe!

Love the necklace with the gorgeous pendant...as you well know purple is one of my most favorite colors!!!

Great bracelet...I'm a huge fan of wide/large/dangle bracelets I always wear at least two, with that I would only have to wear one! :0)

Cheers
