If you sell on Etsy or buy handmade products on Esty you have seen some wonderful items on the front page, most of which are combined together in a Treasury and today I had the opportunity to make my very own Treasury.
I've got wedding on the brain lately so I decided to combine some of my favorite wedding themed items. Check it out when you get a chance here . The Treasury only lasts a few days so get over there and check it out before it expires.

It's also been a great time to catch up with old friends and make new ones. There's always so much going on in NYC in the summer time, so much to do, see, and somewhere to go. I've also been really fortunate to have my work featured in quite a few online blogs and treasuries on Etsy. I haven't made it to the front page of Etsy...yet! But I'm sure it's only a matter of time. Want to see one of the pieces featured in a recent blog? My egg post earrings were featured here! Oh, yes and my wine glass charms were written about here!
Also since its Fall and all (well not quite officially yet) I'm getting ready for my Fall inspired and Halloween inspired jewelry. Two of my all time favorites are my candy corn and my pumpkin glass bead earrings. Sure to get you lots of stares, oooh's and ahhh's. They are really just so much fun.
One more thing- I'm gearing up for another jewelry giveaway so stay tuned...details are coming soon! Very soon! I promise!

I've recently been getting back into the pool scene (billiards) and lovin it! So, as an ode to pool and for pool lovers everywhere I've started making 8-Ball glass bead necklaces. First of the series is a black and white 8-Ball necklace. It's small but it really stands out! Whats really nice about this piece is the "8" shows up on both sides of the bead, just incase it flips around on you.
It's also great even if your'e not a pool player and you just need a bit of luck. The number 8 is lucky... right?
Check it out here! And please let me know what you think!
Also just a reminder, today is the last day for the FREE Sterling Silver Swirly Earrings Promotion.
Until next time...

It's essential to take proper care of your jewelry if you want it to last so I've come up with a new Jewelry Care Instruction Pamphlet and it will now be available with every purchase from my Etsy store. If you've purchased something previously from me, please let me know that you'd like one and I'll gladly email one to you. You can email me at: email@example.com.
Storing It: My Aziza Jewelry comes with a plastic ziploc style bag and a small pouch or box. When not in use, store your clean, dry jewelry in the plastic bag and put the plastic bag inside of your pouch or box. This will protect the jewelry from dirt, dust and keep the silver or gold from tarnishing due to being exposed to the outside air. Remember to wipe your jewelry dry after wearing it and before storing it in your plastic bag.
Happy Jewelry Care!

To celebrate my new blog I’m hosting a FREE Jewelry Giveaway! Yep, you read correctly, its FREE! I’ve decided to give away to one lucky reader this beautiful pair of Copper Green Leaf Lampwork Glass Bead Earrings. I'm very excited!!
These are made from Murano copper green glass and sterling silver wire and measure 1 5/8 inches long. The copper green is such a wonderful color because if it catches the flame of my torch just at the right point, it produces a hint of a silvery metallic color. These have lots of silvery glints and veiny green flints as well.
These are a really nice pair of earrings! Now on to how to win them…
Two ways to win:

My jewelry line involves mostly glass bead creations and most of my pieces are sort of built around these beads. I make all of my glass beads by hand using a process called lampworking or flameworking. I make some of my beads hollow, by using glass blowing techniques as well. Some of my pendants and earrings are also fused.
I incorporate swarovski crystals, pearls, silver, gold and many other components to achieve the desired result I have in mind. I also incorporate techniques like wire wrapping, hammering and soldering to create finished pieces. I even make some of my beads from Precious Metal Clay. You can find out more about PMC here.
and freshwater pearls and jingle bells...
