February DUST Swap

Posted by juliesjewels on February 12, 2009

Swap number 2

Recently the etsyDUST team arranged a swap amongst members.

The theme was LOVE which is quiet apt for February and Valentine’s Day upcoming.

Anyway I had to make something to send to Anthea of – http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=23424 – her favorite colors are Purple and White and she picked her favorite items from my store.  Her choices were Chandlier Earrings and the ‘Bunch of Grapes’ earrings…

So from that I created these two pairs for her.


Anthea’s comment on receiving her parcel – Dear Julie-Ann,

Today, peeping out of my post box was the very exciting little package I have been looking forward to. I was so excited opening the envelope and reading the beautiful card!

I LOOOOOOOOOVE BOTH these earings.
I am flabber-ghasted that you sent me more than one pair – you completely shouldn’t have – and then again, I’m so glad you did as I love them both!

I have put the grape earings on immediately as they match (scarily perfect in colour) with what I was wearing today and I can’t WAIT to wear the beautiful Chandelier earings tomorrow.

It has been truly lovely being your swap ‘recipient’. I feel that I am one of the super-lucky ones and could not have hoped for a better beautiful gift – let alone TWO pairs.

Once again, I adore them and am so thrilled.

Thank you so very much for your beautiful work and designey style…

Yours sincerely & excitedly…


Now I’m waiting on my item coming from… Gillian – http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5190943 – I Can’t wait to see what my pressie is, will pop it in here when it’s here…

Well here it is – TaDa

A gorgeous canvas sign with my business name – Julie’s Jewels

It’s perfect.  It even has a dictionary page and the two words above my name are – jewel & jewelry – how apt is that?
