*** BEADPOD REVIEW & GIVEAWAY *** (CLOSED)


I'm very fond of jewelry (oh we females :P); I really love looking at those attractive beauties, and today, I'd like to introduce you a great Etsy shop Beadpod from Singapore. This shop is full of dainty necklaces, charming bracelets, pretty earrings, colorful rings and also cute hair accessories.
Entwined. Classic. Simple. Bridal jewelry. Perfect for everyday.strawberry pink. pearl bracelet.Ray of sunshine. citrine gemstone earrings. vintage inspired.
When Marilyn accepted my offer for review & giveaway, I was very pleased. I had a chance to review one of her necklaces (peach cabochon flower necklace). It arrived in a very chic, lilac-colored package.

The first thing I realized about the necklace is the details and the intensive workmanship. It isn't an ordinary necklace. It has little pretty shines on it. It measures about 26 inches and it has a double chain on one side (metallic and golden color together). The chain can also be adjustable thanks to the rings (it's the way which my mother will use it; she loved it very much). It's a very light and comfortable necklace. It has three mother of pearl beads on the single metallic chain where it meets the pendant. As it is understood from its name, it has a peach colored cabochon flower on the pendant area and there is a tiny filigree butterfly with three pearly beads next to the flower. Under the flower, colorful beads and Swarowski crystals hang. All in all, it's a very elegant necklace for your special days.

My Favorite Three from the Shop:
- Web of Dreams Necklace. Stunning and Unique = $16.90
- Purple Snowflakes Earrings. Festive, Classy, Elegant = $14.90
- Bubblegum (Blue) Chalcedony Gemstone Earrings = $40.00

From the Sponsor:
I have always loved making jewellery and most of my items are wearable everyday pieces. My creations come out mostly as dainty and sweet probably because I have a sweet tooth. I hope that customers will love whatever they buy from my shop as much as I have loved creating them.

#2 MAIL ALERT :)

Today, I received two beautiful packages of prizes which I won a while ago.
The first one is a labradorite and jade prayer mala which is handmade by Mary of misobel from US. My brother is very fond of malas nowadays and he wants to have a collection of them, so I gave it to him as a gift. He became very happy :)
(Here in Turkey, mala is an accessory of men besides having a religious purpose. Men keep it in their hands, shake it, twist it, etc. It's very good for dealing with stress.)



The second one is a box of books which I won from Kristin at blogfest! She sent me 3 books of her Anita Shreve collection. I'm looking forward to reading them as soon as I finish my current book that I read.
ARV: $48

From the Shop Owner:
I live in Port Washington, Wisconsin in the U.S. I graduated college with a bachelors of science in applied mathematics and also work as a tutor. I enjoy spending time with my husband, playing the cello, horseback riding, singing, cooking, making things by hand and playing with our dog Obie. We adopted Obie in August of 2008 when he was nine years old and underweight. He was not wanted by his old family who had him two years prior. We have no idea where he was before then. We love him so much and even though he is a senior dog, he has so much life in him, is so sweet and has great manners. Please support your local animal shelter!

Additionally, my sisters Jan and Vivian are creative forces in this shop. Vivian makes jewelry and knits. Jan makes jewelry too. Be sure to check out their sections in the shop!

TEMPLATE CHANGE

As you notice, my blog template changed. Actually it happened by mistake while I was trying something new (I forgot to save my previous one). But anyway, I like it :D This is less complicated than the previous one I think. And my boyfriend likes it, too :)
So, I want to hear your comments please! If you don't like it, I may change, but only if I find a really good template :D (Or back to my old template, who knows). :P
