Free jewelry / Pay it Forward (PIF)

I think that it's time for a freebie soon. I was thinking of doing a PIF (pay it forward -an act of kindness to some stranger, who, in turn, reciprocates with another stranger) but giving jewelry away is not really a random act but something more intentional. A random act IMHO is more like opening the door for someone or picking up something that someone dropped. And also, I believe that a gift should not have any attachments as with a PIF. So, stay tuned for something like this in the future either on our website or etsy shop. Anyways, if you're looking for eye candy, here are some vintage beaded earrings that are a little different than what we usually make.

Filipinos and the Black Eyed Peas

I am afraid that I am a bad blogger. It has been awhile hasn't it?!! I never know quite what to say and so procrastination seems to get the best of me. We recently purchased some really nice smoky quartz and agate gemstones that are going to be utilized in some of our jewelry designs. The new pics are a couple of examples of what we've done so far. They're not very springish but some people don't like pinks and pastels so we always try to make things that all our customers would like. Or that we think they would like. Anyways, stay tuned for more goodies and feel free to leave a comment on what you would like to see. We love custom requests:)

In the meantime, here is a funny video by the Black Eyed Peas. It's not something that you would see on MTV as it is sung in Tagalog, one of the member's native tongue. Granted it has been out for a while, but since I am over the hill and out of the loop, I just recently saw this. My brother has it on his myspace and when I first saw it, I could not stop cracking up. If you know or have any Filipino members in your family, you will definitely relate to the beginning.

Welcome and thanks for visiting our blog. Prepare to be served with jewels, food, and a little bit of humor. Enjoy your stay and hope to see you again soon.
