Giveaway with Gerrí, from I Love Charms! (closed)



Life in the Pitts


“Why put all your memories in a scrapbook? Wear them instead!”


Let me introduce you to a new friend of mine. Her name is Gerrí (that's right, she has an accent in her name, too!), and she cracks me up. When I approached her about this giveaway, she replied;

"Okay, now I'll be honest and admit that I'm your parent's age...are you going to de-invite me now that you know that? Please don't...I am young at heart, really."

I assured her that I wouldn't de-friend her because of her extreme advanced age.

Here is a little info about Gerrí, the lady behind I Love Charms:

----------------------------------

Gerrí and her beautiful daughter, Kristin

I am a happy mom to 4 kids, all grown and out of the nest.

I have one darling monkey, my grandson Ian.

And I have a sweet husband who encourages me and spoils me :)

Gerrí and her man.
(She promises his head isn't really that big)

I love crafts, my flower garden, reading, beachcombing (when I get to a beach once a year),

And of course I love jewelry!

(this is Gerrí's personal charm bracelet. Each charm has a special meaning for her)

I was a consultant for a small sterling silver charm business about 10 years. My life got too busy so I had to put the business on hold.


Because I missed the jewelry business and because I still had many charms left, I started my etsy shop I Love Charms a few months ago.


I love wearing jewelry, I love making jewelry and I especially love charms.


I come from a tradition of jewelry shop owners: my dad owned a jewelry and watch repair shop in New York City, my uncle owned a small jewelry shop in Long Island, New York.


And my great, great Uncle Sam immigrated from Romania to New York City in the late 1800s with diamonds sewn into the seams of his clothing!


My mother has a very old and beautiful bracelet (art deco style) made with Uncle Sam’s diamonds.

And today, I'm excited to share my jewelry with you.

----------------------------------

He had diamonds sewn into the seams of his clothing?? That is such an awesome story!

As you can see, Gerri is extremely talented, and her shop is full of beautiful things.

This one is my favorite:


Enter to win your choice of jewelry from I Love Charms!

The winner gets to pick pick anything from I Love Charms as their prize! (except that last bracelet, because it's mine!).

And the runner up will get 3 Swarovski Crystal birthstones of their choice!


Awesome, huh?

I love the march birthstone ring necklace! its soo cute and would make a perfect gift for my mother in law since she has a March birthday.

Rosie said...

Actually, I think I'm going for the cinderella pumpkin carriage charm. My mom started a bracelet for me when I was in kindergarten and I still love it and add to it. I could use this to commemorate Hazel's first disneyland trip! I almost typed "to start Hazel's own bracelet" ... but I'm not quite so altruistic.

Thanks for all of your entries! I just want to remind you of the 20% off sale this week on everything in my i love charms etsy shop. It's my first 20% off sale.

To "The Doll": I can get birthstone ring charms in all the months, but in a little bit different style than the March one I have listed. Really, I can usually find any charm you want through my suppliers. Just ask!

Have a happy day!
