In celebration of 5 years of my writing Relishments, I’m be doing 3 giveaways over the course of this week, featuring some of the bloggers I’ve been fortunate enough to meet through this site. There’s still time to enter the giveaway from December 24 (it ends on December 31) and the last giveaway will be announced on December 30.
Unlike the other giveaways this week, Jasmine Myers and I only met for the first time a few months ago. I have known of her though; I first become exposed to Jasmine during her stint as a blogger. After some very difficult personal challenges in 2012, however, Jasmine channeled her energy into a different sort of creative venture. Her Etsy store, bama+ry, sells Jasmine’s handmade, hand stamped and personalized jewelry.
I’d seen Jasmine’s work around the blogosphere and visited her Etsy page a few times, but I didn’t realize how impressive the pieces were until she brought her wares to the 2013 Healthy Living Summit. There, Jasmine and I had a series of conversations about her work. It was then that I realized that “hand stamped” means that Jasmine stamps each individual letter onto the copper and nickel pieces, one by one. I walked away with a chain and a small anchor charm that I gave my sister for her birthday. And since then, I’ve been sort of obsessed’ her work is beautiful. It’s amazing that I haven’t bought every item in the store already.
So I was thrilled when Jasmine was willing to provide Relishments readers the opportunity to win one of her pieces. I’ll be sending the lucky winner one of her Creative necklaces. The necklace the winner will receive is slightly different than the one shown above; the stone is a dark color and the charm has a heart stamped on it, as shown in my photo below.
