The MaKu Collection GIVEAWAY ends 10/30

I know some of you have already started your christmas shopping!  I hope you're not done yet!  And if you haven't even started, do I have a store for you!   

Please let me introduce to you The MaKu Collection and the woman behind the gorgeous jewelry!

Glass Lamp Work Necklace on Waxed Cotton
My name is Winnie and I’m a stay at home mom with 2 lovely children.  I always love arts and crafts.  A little over a year ago I’ve started making jewelry.  I felt in love with all of the beautiful beads, gemstones, and beads I used in my jewelry are handmade by artisans in the USA and Italy.
 I do not like to limit myself when I’m designing jewelry. Sometimes, I like to mix handmade beads with gemstones, and sometimes I’ll use gemstones with my resin pendants.   Handmade Bali silver and Vermeil findings are also components I love to use.
Organic Crocheted Beads Necklace

Apart from beads, I also use rubber stamps, digital graphics, pretty paper and fibers.   I’m always thinking of new designs and trying new materials to make unique pieces.  You can find very casual to formal jewelry in my shop.  They are all carefully crafted with affordable prices.

In my Etsy shop, you’ll find a small selection of very cute handmade polymer clay pendant necklaces for girls.  I started making these necklaces for my 8 year old daughter.  She absolutely loves them so I decided to make them available for my customers.
