"Vamp" is my favorite...it makes me think of my SIL who's a Twilight fanatic!

Auroras_Garden said...

Its hard to say which is my favorite as I have beheld so many of their creations and have a really tough time picking out only ONE I love!
I am rather fond of Ocean view necklace cause I like things that sparkle and glitter.

I also tweeted this and posted it on my facebook, and stumbleupon. I ask everyone else to help us out and use the "share" button at the bottom of the post to post it to YOUR twitter or facebook. Not a requirement but it would help us get the word out about the contest and we would ALL appreciate it!

My favorite would be the Pretty in Pink necklace - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=28994862

I love Whimsy's shop because they offer "plus size" jewelry. A lot of jewlers don't understand that a 16" or 18" necklace can be uncomfortable on a woman of size. Whimsy is fantastic!

I have retweeted this and am following the blog.

October 7, is the Feast Day of Our Lady of the Rosary. Consider Making Rosary Beads. You'll get Many Catholic Customers, and Many Blessings.

October 11, Blessed Father Damien Joseph Veuster (Fr Damien) will be Canonized a Saint, by Pope Benedict XVI. Watch it at 4:00 AM EST, On EWTN.COM or EWTN TV. The Canonization of Father Damien A's a Saint, will be aired early Sunday Morning. Rome is 6 Hours ahead of USA, EST. Think about Recording it on your DVR. Fr Damien died in Moloki, in Hawaii, of Leprosy, as he Ministered to the Hawaians who were dying of Leprosy. He was born in Belgium. Died on that Leprosy Island in Hawai, called Moloki. Halloween=Eve of All Hallows. Eve of All Saints Day, which is Celebrated on November 1, every year, in the Roman Catholic Church.

I love that the shop offers plus size necklaces and bracelets - I can't tell you how many times I've bought a bracelet on Etsy that is too small!

I love their jewelry! All of it! I love the two pieces I bought at our BEST team meeting at Berheim. I got to wear one the chartreuse beaded bracelet before I gave it to my bff for her birthday.
I almost bought this necklace! Love it! Love it! I'll put this on my blog when I figure out how.

Their jewelery has been amazing from the get-go. That woman certainly has an eye for gorgeous beads and how to get the most of them, and it's wonderful that someone is offering fat-friendly accessories. My fave at the moment is the Hard Candy Set, I could just eat it up.

Fresh said...

Whimsy Beading has some stunning pieces. Delighted to see the extra long necklaces & plus sizes.
I love to wear some very long pretty beaded stands mixed with shorter more complex necklaces & chokers. One of my favorite items is the gorgeous "OOAK January Evening"! Adore the artistry and amazing details. Each chose of bead to their tiny variation in hues. Dreamy, delicate, wispy and simple lovely!
The luscious additional of the long drop at the back gives it that extra special ~ Ou! La! La!
Perfect for a bewitching evening in a romantics lacy dress or a Snow Fairy in toe shoes dancing in delight! ~SMILE~
I am now following your blog with Google Connect PLUS I have just subscribed to Bluegrass!
Crossing my fingers! "Boo To You" is so.. adorable for the Halloween season.

First off, I just Love the fact that such talented folks are creating such amazing jewelry for the plus sized mama's n papa's. I'm simply charmed by the spokesman Mr Angus McEwan, he makes me smile! Autumn Splendor is gorgeous! And it's hard to believe the new "lace collar" is Joey's first shot at this style. It is amazing! His next bridal style will surely be something out of a fairytale! Awesome peices here!
