Etsyversary Give-away!

Remember in my previous post that I mentioned I had a surprise? Well, it's my One Year Etsyversary and to celebrate I'm having a little giveaway! I'll reveal the prize in just a moment, but first, I wanted to unveil my new logo and packaging for my business--a new look, for a new year of online selling:

Erin of EdUB Graphics created this logo for me--I think she did a wonderful job! The tendrils and leaves perfectly capture the nature of my work (and my company's namesake, the ivy vine...)
*
And here is a photo of my new packaging for my Etsy shop--I had brand new hang tags printed up with the logo, and am now incorporating a piece of hand-crocheted lace into the decoration:

*
And now, without further ado, my 
FIRST ANNUAL ETSYVERSARY GIVEAWAY!

I'm giving away this little pair of one-of-a-kind earrings to one lucky reader...

{Hyacinthe Earrings}
They feature medallions of lavender silk, edged in handmade lace of real silver thread and tanazanite stones. In the center of the medallions is a dainty flower of silver thread, dotted with amethyst, tanzanite chips and vintage seed beads. The flower's center is a large, mauve freshwater pearl...

The ear wires and findings are sterling silver...

And the drops are faceted amethyst with accents of mauve freshwater pearls and tanzanite. 
Very flowery and romantic and perfect for Summer!

*
To enter, you can:
Leave a comment or suggestion on this post--such as what is your favorite design in my Etsy shop, what you'd like to see more of on my blog, etc.
Write a "tweet" on Twitter with a link back to this post, and then leave a comment to let me know
Write a short blog post with a link back to this one and leave a comment with the link to let me know
You can do any or all of these options--but please, no more than three entries per person!

I'll announce the winner on August 1st!
*
Good luck! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend :)

Absolutely Lovely and Dreamy as Ever my Dear!
Happy Etsyversary!!!

RowanDeVoe said...

Congrats Ivy! I adore your new logo and packaging! They will just make your jewelry even more exciting when a lucky person receives it in the mail!

Wow, how can I offer advice or pick a fav? I have loved your Dauphine necklace since you made it. I also love your Desdemonia necklace and your Isobel necklace. I LOVE your Tudor Rose bracelet. So, a suggestion? Maybe a necklace to match the Tudor Rose bracelet? OOh, and more photo shoots with your Mom! Or, I will have to continue to camp out and bring all my photography equipment to take photos of you wearing your latest creations-hehe.

Everything you make is pure magic and it and I love it all.
Wishing you all the best for year 2!
xo,
merle

Someone's going to get spoiled:)

Oh, dear I've been so fortunate with winning at these I had better pass on the good luck to another fortunate bird, but I had to let you know just how lovly they are indeed!

and happy Etsy versary sweets!

RowanDeVoe said...

kerin rose said...

oh, like Michaela Dawn, I am going to 'save' the opportunity for someone else, as , crazy as this may sound for a jewelry maker, I dont wear earrings, except for the little studs that have been in my ears for 10 year now...never the less, I still had to land and complement you on the lovely purple hued treasures and congratulate on your fabulous year online!...

may your business grow to incrementally match the depth of your lovely soul and talents Ivy!
peace

Suz said...

Happy Etsyversary and I love your jewelry. Especially the PAISLEY earrings, the DAUPHINE necklace and the OCEANE earrings. Gorgeous and unique.

The Fairy Shoemaker said...

Ivy! How generous of you!
They are simply stunning, fit for a fairy queen me thinks.
The new logo is wonderful. As you say, very apt for your delicate and tendrilly workmanship, as light as a cobweb. Will you be using this on the blog???
Hope your dress preparations are going well and that your Mothers carefully hoarded stores arent too depleted! My daughters whip all my bestest bits and I console myself that at least they have good taste!!
You take care, Ren x

emma lamb said...

congratulations Ivy!!!
wow, one whole year of blogging already and how generous of you to give away such a gorgeous pair of earrings!!!
unfortunately i too am a 'one pair of studs only' kinda girl, so i shall let another lovely lady have the chance of these beauties... :)

btw, ont the cushion front... i haven't done anything yet. to be honest i'm not sure i can do anything other than cause myself a lot of fuss and stress...!?

happy sunday my dear... :)

Gata Valquíria said...

Hello Ivy!!!!
Happy Etsyversary!!!!!Your work is truly amazing, is very difficult to say what is the most beautiful piece, because they are all fantastic! Is the same that ask who´s the prettiest son...
Thank you to share so wonderful things!!!

RosyRevolver said...

Ivy, the new logo is brilliant. I think you are a pioneer in the jewelry field. And I saw those paisly peackock-feather looking earrings and about fell out of my chair! Congratulations on the completion of year one, and the beginning of a whole 'nuther Etsy chapter. You give girls like me hope!!

I will be sure to post about your giveaway today on my blog. I'm not on Twitter (in intimidates me to death) but if I were, I'd be tweeting there about you too!

Best of luck and keep up the amazing, amazing work.

Digital Misfit said...

ALL of your pieces are absolutely inspired. If I had to choose only one favorite, it would be the Frida bracelet simply because of the bold use of color (and a love of Ms Kahlo herself). Your technique is so amazing and strong throughout your line.
Congratulations on your Etsyversary.

Southern Lady's Vintage said...

Ivy, I love your new logo and your packaging too!! So professional looking and makes a great presentation! You know that I love everything you create so I just don't think I am able to pick a favorite!! You know that I love them all! What would I love to see on your blog? I would love to see a video of you creating one of your gorgeous creations! I know it is a time consuming process, but maybe just highlights and techniques or something like that.
I tweeted about your giveaway and am happy to spread the news. I have blogged about you before and if I get time I am going to try to blog about your giveaway! Best wishes for a successful year 2 over in the land of Etsy!!

The Giveaway Diva said...

The part I love most about your shop is your packaging! I really love opening the padded envelopes that are quite blah to find a nicely wrapped box! Even if it’s just for yourself it really makes you feel spoiled! There is not that many times when you can feel that way! So I love when etsy sellers have amazing looking packaging! You really know how to make a girl feel special!! Omg love the giveaway earrings by the way!! My Favorite piece is the Tudor Rose bracelet!!

erica said...

Oh wow such talent!! I love your Oceane Earrings! What an amazing giveaway!!!

CindySowers said...

Everything looks lovely, doll-ing! Still a BIG fan of the green paisley :) So, how many days are left until the big t'do?!! I was thinking you had only the dress to make, and then I remembered -- you'll probably have jewels, too! Can't wait to see! -- Cindy

Leigh-Anne C. said...

Happy Etsyversary! Your designs are simply quiver-worthy.

Of what you currently have on offer, I particularly like the Dauphine necklace. The echoes of its namesake are felt in the soft blue and silvers as they weave through the slender shape, and the pearls, rhinestone, and quartz are like a little glimpse into another world.

All the best to you!

Iris said...

Happy Etsyversary!!!
Your creations are amazing and inspired. I love your earrings: Océane Earrings, Paloma Earrings, Paisley Earrings and your Frida Bracelet. Your blog is magical. I really love your aesthetics. If I could make a suggestion, I hope that you could give advice and guidelines to amateur jewellery designers like me and someday you could write a book about jewellery design.

I wish you all the best.

Wow! What an artist! I'm blown away by LACE MEDALLIONS. The Oceane earrings look like weighty precious pearls and yet they are so delicate-looking. They are elegant and traditional wedding pieces that look like they may have come from a royal keepsake chest.

Congratulations on your 1 Year Etsy Anniversary! I wish you another fine year there too! I think your jewelry designs are absolutely exquisite! You have created the most beautiful one of a kind little works of art and I would be so proud to wear any one of your stunning pieces. My very favorite item from your Etsy Shop is the ISOBEL NECKLACE--Wedding Jewelry by Edera. It is an extraordinary piece and I would wear this with so many different types of outfits, and I am already married but it is far too amazing not to wear for other occasions as well! I am so in love with the stunning earrings that are part of this celebration giveaway so thank you so much for the chance to enter.

Your designs/creation are quite magnificant and unique. My favorites are the exquisite Dauphine and ISOBEL ("wedding") Necklaces and the dazzling Cascade Earrings. Other observation:

I love the look of the crocheted earrings, but I wonder/worry, how heavy they might be. My ear can't handle too much weight without hurting - no matter how gorgeous the earring are!
