Handcrafted Sterling Silver Earring GIVEAWAY

Spring is almost here, and what better way to celebrate wonderful things like warmer weather, longer days, and blooming flowers than with some pretty new jewelry? I'm thrilled to announce that Destiny of Destiny Ray Jewelry in Portland, Oregon is giving one lucky Bubby and Bean reader a pair of her stunning handmade sterling silver earrings!

This lovely pair of earrings, set on sterling silver ear wires, features marquis shapes that she hand-hammered for a beautifully detailed finish.  These gorgeous, one-of-a-kind earrings retail for $24.  I wish I could keep them for myself!

Destiny has a degree in fine art from the University of Oregon, where she immersed herself in jewelry and metalsmith classes.


Her passion for creating earthy, elegant jewelry eventually evolved into her business, Destiny Ray.  Destiny says that her work is inspired by a love of silver and simplicity of design and color. 


You view more of Destiny's designs on her website or in her Etsy shop.  Thank you Destiny for giving our readers this wonderful opportunity to own one of your wearable works of art!
