I kind of don't really know where to start with this blog post. There's so much I want to say about this woman, this shop, THIS JEWELRY LINE...that it's like pushing Play-Doh through a straw.
Let me see if I can gather all of my bouncing excited thoughts and constructively put them into some sort of order. Here we go...
Andrea Bonelli is the mastermind behind this phenomenal line of gorgeousness. And I do mean gor-ge-ous-ness! I love every single thing she puts out. Her company's subtitle says it all, "Eco Friendly and Sustainable Handcrafted Jewelry". I mean...who does that?! Not only are her pieces eco friendly AND sustainable, but also...everything is made by hand! HER hand! She's such a gem.
(See what I did there?)
Andrea really is a gem guys. I love being able to honestly say that over the years, I've been so privileged to actually get to know her. She's just the nicest, most down to earth woman. And a God-loving woman at that. She's just great.
To Andrea, "working on each and every piece brings my vision to your hands." All those tasks keep her extremely busy but she really wouldn't have it any other way. She's also kind of a big deal. Just check out all the press she's gotten over the years! Gooooo Andrea!
I just had to show you some of the pieces I'm just swooning for days over...
From beautiful earrings, hand cut gems, delicate charms, rustic rings and bracelets...I think there's a strong possibility I may use my entire tax refund in the next few days.
But friends, that's not all I wanted to share with you guys. Friends...Andrea is generously offering one SLBS reader a chance to win this flipping gorgeous Hand Carved Sterling Silver Faceted Rock Pendant Necklace! *Cue the jealousy on my part that I can't enter*
JUST LOOK AT IT! Sheesh. I can see it now...little black dress, kitten heels, and THIS NECKLACE! Kudos to whomever wins this beauty.
Please please friends, go and check this girl out. Having a necklace from Andrea, I can honestly vouch that her line is top quality and gorgeous to boot. Plus, it's not like anything out there. Score.
