this just in!


Yes, I am at work. And yes, I should wait to post until later. But I just couldn't wait!

My amazingly talented friend Angela just alerted me to her *new* Etsy shop she opened over the weekend! I just took a look and WOW! The jewelry, the photos, the descriptions - beautiful! So, so impressed!

Angela and I became friends when we started working together about 2 years ago. I remember commenting on her pretty necklace her first day; she replied, "Thanks, I made it." I couldn't believe that she had actually twisted all the wire herself and taken the time to make something so intricate (to see what I mean, look at her Mary Neckalce, which I love)! She does it all -cooking, sewing, and of course jewelry-making. And I owe my introduction to the craft-blogging world to her. So a BIG shout out to Angela!

Be sure to stop in at the shop and visit her blog - she's doing a giveaway for the earrings pictured above (or another similar pair - your choice). Yay!

UPDATE: Congrats, Jordan, on winning the earrings!

You are too kind! And I could have never taken those pictures if you hadn't lead me to the infamous Brian Niven. Thanks Karla, you're the best!
