I love love love the "moon is made os swiss cheese" earrings ! and all the moon drops too! Great selection-Thanks!



CONGRATS!! Please respond within 36 hours to claim your prize!


Our next giveaway is sponsored by Amy at the Etsy shop Stellar Relics and is open to anyone in the world.


(Sorry for the icky iPhone pic!) Amy offered to send me some goodies from her jewelry shop, Stellar Relics, for review purposes for this blog. It arrived in a cute little pink-bubble-wrapped package in extremely short order.


Stellar Relics is another shop with great branding, and this is the cute little packet inside the bubble wrap. Everything matched, from the packing to the business cards, and I just love that.


Amy had asked me what I would like from her shop, and I sent her a BUNCH of links, unable to narrow it down further. Imagine my surprise when I opened the packet to find that she had very generously sent me FIVE different pairs of earrings, out of my requests! I was beside myself, totally giddy. My absolute favorites are these Silver Tassel Disco Drops, which are suprisingly "fancy" and dressed-up, unlike what I expected. When I put them on, the hubs immediately told me that I needed to put on something nice to go with them. So I did, and they looked great! These earrings are FAB. I am loving them as much in my lobes as in the pictures from the shop.


These emerald briolettes will go perfectly, I think, with the shawlette that I just finished knitting myself. I can't wait to wear them together! My five-year-old, Sophia, tried them in her own ears. They looked beautiful on her, too, but she did manage to get one of the dangling stones loose from its setting. It didn't take me long or too much effort to fix it, though, so I was quite relieved. (Sophia is The Ruinator in this house!)


I picked this pair of emerald dangles to go with the same shawlette, in case the other pair didn't match. They both go well and are both stunning in person. Part of the reason I chopped my hair off recently (see profile pic) was to better show off all the purdy earrings I got from Stellar Relics. No lie; I'm totally serious!! (I'm a bit impulsive, lol...)


I was glad to see Amy had sent me these lime-colored nautilus earrings, too. Gotta represent the sea! Aren't they so cute? My oldest, Chloë wore these for a day, and they looked terrific on her, too.


These matryoshka dolls are suprisingly weighty, and they feel awesome in my ears. They are highly detailed, even on the reverse side. I love the dolls and was so pleased when these were sent to me. Love 'em!


All-in-all, I'm thrilled with everything Amy sent to me, and when I want something fun and funky to add to my jewelry collection, I will definitely be back to check out her well-stocked shop.


Stellar Relics carries all kinds of great jewelry, besides earrings. I just chose earrings myself, because I wanted to add to that area of my jewelry wardrobe. If you're into vintage, check out this section, where you can find this classy pearl choker for only $14!


There are lots of great finds in the necklace section, here. I love this vintage pendant - too cool!


You'll find this beauty in the bracelet section. I would rock that thang!


How fun is this record ring, found in the ring section? All the rings are so cute!


Oh, my gosh. LOVE these hair pins! Check 'em out here.

So take your sweet time to peruse Stellar Relics, because I guarantee you will find eleventy billion things you want to spend your 30 smackers on. Have fun!

  19. If I win I would probably end up spending a little bit extra because I really want the Silver Tassel earrings and the Vintage Crystal and Sapphire Pendant Necklace, so that's $4 over.... But on top of that I really like the Rock Queen Ring in blue. So I'd end up $11 over and be perfectly happy to pay that ;)
