Jewelry in July - Sharon of Shay Designs

Today's featured jeweler is a fabulous lady--one I truly hope to call my friend in the future! I came across a picture of one of her necklaces on another blog, clicked on it hoping to find out where that lovely masterpiece came from, and I found Sharon's shop, Shay Designs! As soon as I opened it up, I was even more in love! There are a million and one hand-stamped jewelers out there, but without a doubt Sharon is one of my favorites! I'm a total girly-girl, and I love how much girly-ness is captured in her creations! As Sharon herself said....
"I create from the heart and draw off of what makes me giddy with joy, which is all things girly-girl and cute!"
They make me giddy with joy too!!! I love love them!

{Girly-Chic} Stamped Jewelry designed for every day wear.
Hello, my name is Sharon, and I am a mom of 3 amazing kids and I am also blessed with the most awesome husband. I started my shop in September of 2011 when I decided I needed to get back to my roots of creativity. I took it all day by day, step by step, and with the help of the internet I continually learned a new craft that I have turned into something that consumes me night and day... in a good way!
It has been less than a year since opening my shop and I cannot believe how far I have come, how much I have sold, and how much I have learned. I have spent countless hours in research and learning, as well as the crafting of my necklaces, but worth every ounce of sweat and tears. Yes, there have been tears, but we grow best and are molded to perfection through tears and struggles.
I could not have done this without the support of my husband who lifted me up when I was wiped out, who helped me more with the house and kids when I needed it, and who never questioned this leap of faith I was taking. With the blessings of God I have created hundreds of necklaces for so many amazing customers who continue to come back for more. I am humbled and so grateful! I cannot wait to see what the next year has in store for me. So many ideas of new creations in store.
Keep connected with Shay Designs through my website/blog and Facebook for new and exciting designs and sales!

Today Sharon is giving away a Stamped Initial Necklace with Vintage Key...
"Vintage and Sweet Simplicity says it all with this necklace! A vintage shabby chic style key accents this 1/2 inch silver pendant that is stamped with your initial. To add even more cuteness a sweet little pink freshwater pearl is included. Chain is an 18 inch ball chain. If you would like you can change the color of your key to a white or silver with coordinating pearls of white and gray... see pic of color choices. When ordering please state initial you would like stamped and if you choose to change your key color with coordinating pearl."
I'm not going to lie. I really. Really want to cheat and just take this necklace for myself! When I first found her shop, this exact necklace was one of my top favorites!!! When I saw she was giving it away I wanted to cry--only because I knew I couldn't win! Heheee!!! But don't worry... I won't do any of that. I would feel too bad ;)
