Earring Exchange: $20 Gift Certificate & a pair of Simple Sterling Silver Hoops Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Vittoria #158

Check out this lovely Etsy shop, Earring Exchange. In it you'll find beautiful interchangeable jewelry designs that will really make your wardrobe pop!

I have been designing and creating jewelry for about six and a half years now. My favorite pieces to make are earrings, but I love making necklaces, bracelets, and watches as well. I specialize in "interchangeable" earrings, where you have a simple hook and/or hoop that you can interchange with a variety of dangles. This helps you create multiple "looks" at a fraction of the cost. You can even remove your store-bought earring dangles and use them with my hooks/hoops.

Most of the earrings in my shop are interchangeable - the dangles can be removed from the hooks/hoops and placed onto different hooks/hoops. I only use sterling silver wire or 14 karat gold filled wire. I also love to find and incorporate unique and beautiful gemstones and other beads into my designs.

Click here and here to view all of the interchangeable earring styles.

The necklaces I make also incorporate 100% sterling silver and beautiful and unique gemstones/other beads. Many of them are hand-wired together with special care. They are "choker style" necklaces, most being 17" in length, but I'm more than happy to add or subtract an inch to the necklace if needed.

Click here to view the necklaces.

I include free shipping with everything (except my "PIF" items) in my shop. Also, all jewelry comes securely packaged in a cute gift box - all ready for gift-giving.

One lucky reader will have the chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate plus the Simple Sterling Silver Hoops you see pictured above!

  148. First, I LOVE the EARRING EXCHANGE! I immediately added it to my Etsy Favorites (as well as the three designs I still can't decide between if I were so fortunate to win the $20 GC. - those would be:

    Apricot Sparkle Earrings
    Royalty Amethyst Earring and/or
    Goin' Green - Sterling Silver with Green Onyx, Emerald, and Peridot

    They're all stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  149. I learned that the designer resides in Salt Lake City, is a Mom to four wonderful children and prefers (or perhaps MUST) work late at night into the wee hours...
