Jewelry in Review Raw Edition plus Giveaway!

It's been a while since I've done a Jewelry in Review post so maybe it's about time.

This year I've decided to participate in a group on Flickr called Ring A Week. Each week we all make a new ring. You can see all the RAW rings here. It's been a lot of fun, and I've been trying new concepts.

Here's my first RAW ring. It was my first prong setting that I actually made myself. A lot of fun, and a little challenging. I got it though, and I think it looks AH-MAY-ZING! if I do say so myself. It's a prong set ruby and sterling silver band.

My second inclusion in RAW is a fun little ring just in time for Valentine's Day. It's a sterling silver ring featuring pink resin hearts.

Last week's ring was another resin piece. I'm in a resin kind of mood lately. It's a cute little jeweled plum complete with a cubic zirconia and sterling silver leaves.

Am I doing a good job? I'm having fun with it so far. Now I just need to do this week's before I fall behind, and you know if I fall behind I'll never get caught back up.

In other news, I hit my first 100 fans on facebook this week! Woohoo! So, I'm going to do a quick little giveaway in appreciation which we all know I don't do giveaways often. First Rule... This is ONLY for my facebook fans. If you are not a fan, you can fan me here. Just make a comment on this post to be entered. Get 2 entries if you blog or facebook about this and your friends become fans, but make sure they mention you. And, that's it. So what am I giving away? Hmmm. Good question. How about this? You'll get a set of 3 bangles, two of which are in my shop, from my new 2011 Statement Collection. Giveaway will end Wednesday at 11:59pm EST. Winner will be announced on Thursday's blog post.

Thanks you guys! RAW has been a big inspiration for me this year. A kick in the pants if you will.

Awww, thanks, T! I've missed reading your blog with my coffee. 2010 was a bad year so I'm trying to wean myself back into the blogging thing.
