Angela May

St Michael and Virgin Mary Pendant

This double-sided glass pendant features an image of the Theotokos Virgin Mary and Christ Child on one side and St Michael the Archangel on the reverse.

This pendant is 1.5" square, 3" long including the dangles and bail.  One of the dangles is a vintage Virgin Mary medal and the other is a two-dimensional image of St Michael. 

I have taken a more rustic approach with the silvery lead-free solder used to seal it, thus making it appear ages old. It is not waterproof and should not be worn while swimming or bathing. Clean with any dry silver polishing cloth. It will come with a simple 16-19" necklace or you can choose to have a custom beaded necklace made for it.  Size:  1.5" x 1.5" pendant, 3" long with the dangles and bail.

Value: pendant only, $18, with necklace,  $28.
Lola Surwillo

Rings are my favorite piece of jewelry to create, buy and wear.  The most unique aspect of my rings – and a favorite feature of my customers – is that they are woven on strong elastic for durability and ease of wear.   They are very light and comfortable, and are a great option for those who suffer from arthritis.

One person will win one ring for a total of three giveaways!

Ring #1 – Tagua nut focal surrounded by golden red seed beads and round, gold-filled beads -- Value: $14

Ring #2 – Decorative, metal bracelet slide surrounded by charlotte seed beads and square metal beads --Value: $12

Ring #3 – Swarovski crystal bracelet slides surrounded by charlotte seed beads -- Value $19
