Vendor Spotlight and GIVEAWAY: Dazzling Jewelry and Pearls

Thursday, May 13, 2010 | by Newlywed | Labels: , , |



If you've been following my blog for awhile you'll know that I love pearls! Pearls go great with any wedding day style--from classy vintage to a more modern look. And when the opportunity to review and host a giveaway from our next sponsor came up, I jumped at the chance! Really, the name of the shop really says it all. Etsy shop Dazzling Jewelry and Pearls is your place to find classy, genuine pearl jewelry with a handmade touch all at affordable and reasonable prices. Bonnie from Dazzling Jewelry and Pearls makes all of her jewelry with the best quality materials, including genuine cultured pearls and Swarovski crystals. Her sets of bridal inspired jewelry will make any wedding day ensemble really shine!


As the host of this giveaway, I received a pair of silver and white freshwater pearl earrings from Bonnie and I love the delicate beauty of the pair. The pearls exude a lovely shine that only great quality, genuine pearls can give off. I can see myself wearing the pair at a formal occassion or rocking it with a pair of jeans. That's a huge plus for me--elegant, affordable jewelry that can be worn again and again!

Don't forget to check out Bonnie's jewelry sets! Not only would these pieces go very well for wedding day or even in your everyday jewelry collection, they make wonderful gifts for your bridesmaids.

So who puts the dazzle in Dazzling Jewelry and Pearls? All the way from Cincinnati, meet Bonnie!

What sparked your interest in creating jewelry?
I am a very crafty person since childhood. I have always loved to make stuff and wanted to run a business of my own. While taking maternity leave, I took some jewelry making classes where I made very beautiful items using unique techniques. It was so much fun! From thereon, I have decided to run a jewelry shop online. My dream is to one day quit my day job and focus on what I love to do.

How long have you been creating jewelry?
Over a year.

What words would you use to describe your work?
Elegant styles with high quality. Dazzling yet affordable. I only use the finest quality material while making jewelry pieces. I have very sensitive skin. Almost all my earrings are finished with 925 sterling silver earring hooks.

Which pieces of your jewelry would you say would be perfect for weddings? Why?




 Among all, this is my most favorite bridal creations.
This necklace and earring set looks very simple and elegant. They won’t over power the beauty of any bride. Yet the sparkles emitted from the Swarovski crystals are incredibly blinding. The back drops add a touch of fanciness and subtlety. It’s perfect for any bride. The wires are 925 sterling silver. Please see feedbacks on this jewelry set on Etsy.com under seller name “thebinster2009”.

Tell us one interesting tidbit about your jewelry.
My daughter is a night owl. She usually doesn’t go to bed till after mid-night. All my jewelry pieces were created after she went to bed at night. I tend to work till 3 or 4 am to finish a design. Creation is my outlet these days and I love it.

Which piece is your favorite and why?
In addition to the above mentioned, other favorite jewelry sets of mine are shown below. When you see them, you will know why. They’re just so beautiful and unique, aren’t they?




Any advice for brides-to-be out there?
No need to over spend for exaggerated glamour. All you need is simply taste.
