Larissa's Handcrafted Jewelry GIVEAWAY ends 1/30

It is my pleasure to bring you another awesome etsy shop!

Please let me introduce you to Larissa, who runs Larissa's Handcrafted Jewelry.  She makes gorgeous pieces that I looooove!  Larissa, please tell us a little about yourself...

I am a stay at home mom for 3 wonderful children ages 9, 6, and 4.  I started making jewelry originally just for myself and for my family.  I began selling at jewelry parties and craft shows about 3 years ago and last year decided to venture online and opened my shop on Etsy.

You will not find any plastic or acrylic in my jewelry. I put a lot of myself into my work and would rather not cheapen it by using plastics.  I love working with lampworked glass beads and with various semiprecious stones with Agate and Jasper being my favorites due to the wonderful variety of colors and patterns found in them. I often get inspiration from the beads and cabachons themselves and although at times I do sketch out what I want a certain piece to look like I  find that sometimes the piece itself calls for a different look or feel at which time I will modify it from the original plan until it "feels right" .  My favorite items to work on right now are my pendants.  I love the abstractness of wire wrapping and feel a connection with the stones as I work on them.  

Larissa's work has also been featured in an slide show in their 
beauty and style section!  Check it out here!
