Fantastic Finds- Vol. 2

I loved being able to introduce you to Robin in our first Fantastic Finds, and I am telling you-- there are TONS of amazing women out there who are making and selling goods, so I hope to be able to introduce you to many more as the weeks go on!

Today I NEED to tell someone about Rosalynn. I actually need to tell someone's husband about Rosalynn because then I would be making someone very happy, indeed!

Here's what I learned about Rosalynn, the woman: I am a mommy to a 9 year old boy and a 6 year old girl, and they keep me on my toes! I love to travel, read, hang out with my family, and hike the beautiful mountains of Utah. I've always loved jewelry but I just started making my own around 2 years ago. During the past year I discovered metal stamping and loved that I could customize pieces with names and words. I made a lot of jewelry for family and friends and had so many requests for more that I decided to open my etsy shop. My shop has kept me busy this year, but I'm so grateful to be doing something that I enjoy!

Here's what I love about Rosalynn the artist:
I mean really... do I need to elaborate?!

How awesome is personalized jewelry?

How doubly awesome is personalized jewelry at totally reasonable prices?
Can you believe that all of her stuff in under $35? Unreal!

Rosalynn was kind enough to send me her Faith, Hope, Love necklace (I knew I liked that woman!) and I have adored wearing it every- where! I've gotten so many compliments and I love that it's simple but different.

I would take a picture of it on me, but I'm still in my PJs and Hubby's not home to click the shutter for me... you'll have to take my word for it that it's adorable on me!

Rosalynn truly is a kind woman.

You know how I know? She wanted one of you to be the owner of one of her necklaces too!

She sent me one to share!

So, click on over to Rosalynn's store and look around. See if you can guess which necklace she sent for one of you! Come leave me a comment with your guess and any thoughts you have on Rosalynn's great stuff. I'll draw the winner out of a hat next Friday, March 27th!

Comments are now closed while I draw and contact a winner!
The winner was sabrita:
sabrita said... These are such great designs, and great prices too. I chose the new Bloom Necklace. The flower reminds me of a dogwood bloom which I love. Thanks for the giveaway.

And it WAS the Bloom necklace! Congrats, sabrita!

I love this jewelry. It is very simple and unique. I think that the free necklace is faith, hope and love. It's my favorite and I like how it looked on you.

Mrs. Lail said...

I hope she sent the Faith with pearl necklace. It is so simple and elegant! I absolutely love it.

Laurel said...

I know that no matter which one she sent I would love it! maybe "faith, hope and love", or the "bloom" one?
