I have been so excited to talk about this store. On Monday I received the most beautiful, precious necklace in the mail from Sima's fine art jewelry, an Etsy store.
Even the packaging was fantastic and very original: a metal round box with lavender and a rose petal in there, it smelled fantastic!


This is the necklace, isn't it absolutely gorgeous?
It's a silver necklace with 3 handstamped silver circle discs and a pearl. Mine has the names of my 3 kids on it.

I have had so many reactions from other moms in school and even at the grocery store!!!
For me my kids are my world and this necklace really symbolizes that.

Sima, please tell us a little more about yourself and your store:

I'm Sima Gilady from Boulder, Colorado. I'm a mom of 4 and I make my jewelry in my home when my kids are in school.
I have had a passion for Art and jewelry for most of my life. I'm mostly self-taught and I'm very proud of my self.

My goal is to reach the handmade lovers and one-of-a-kind fans from all over the world.
If you are looking for uniqueness and originality, fashion, style and creativity , you came to the right place.

Sima also has her own blog: www.simagjewelry.blogspot.com

Some examples of Sima's jewelry:
To be honest I had to stop myself not to put her whole store on here.




Please head on over and have a look around but I do have to warn you, you're going to be in that store for quite some time.
I'm convinced some of you moms out there are sold already and it gets even better. Sima has offered to give away the below "My Kids - Handstamped One-Of-A-Kind" necklace to one of my readers. It will be customized with the names of your own kids of course! (up to 5 discs)

For a chance to win this necklace, look around in Sima's store and let us know your favorite item.
For an extra entry, become a follower of "A latte in the morning" and let me know in a separate comment.
If you're not a blogger, then please leave your email in the comment section so I can contact you if you win.
The contest will run till 12/04/08 midnight PST. The winner will be announced here on 12/05/08 and an email will be send.

Now it gets even better, even if you don't win, you can be a winner. Sima will give 10% off of her jewelry when you order. Great for the holidays!! Make sure to let her know you found her store through "A latte in the morning".

Sima, I can't thank you enough for the necklace. I absolutely love your store!!!

Good luck to everybody!

HI
I like the Gift-for-you because it's so delicate and yet dominant.
Besides, it reminds me Mickey Mouse, which makes the whole package even cuter...
Such a stunning design!
