Stunning Earrings from Crafty Hope

Guess what. I won a prize. A real, honest to goodness, comes in the mail prize. Not only that, but it's an incredibly prize. I'm so excited to show you!

Here's the story. There's a lovely blog by Hope called CraftyHope which I read regularly. She often posts the beautiful jewelry she makes, and is currently participating in The 100 Day Challenge to make a pair of earrings every day for 100 days. 

After sharing her first 20 pairs, she announced a contest. All that was required was to comment saying which were your favourites. I commented, although I couldn't pick just one or two favourites, and asked if she would ship to Canada. I expected that to be the end of it...

Until I won! Actually, someone else won but didn't respond so I was the second winner. Hope kindly mailed my earrings and I started anxiously checking the mail every day.

You can imagine my excitement when I saw this adorable packaging arrive in an envelope. I opened it to discover three stunning pairs of earrings. 

Initially the ones below were my favourite pair (and yet I don't have a pic of myself wearing them). Then I tried the others on and decided they're all my favourites. I love that they're dainty, yet still show up in my crazy hair. They're also incredibly well made.

Although the contest is now open to US residents only, you should definitely stop by her blog and check out her work. She also has an Etsy shop with many beautiful pieces for sale.
