Amaria's Best of 2011

This past year at Amaria has been a true joy! Loved every moment spent digging through our very favorite materials, dreaming up designs, and sharing the results. This year was all about combing the world's treasures for exciting inspiration!

Perhaps now is a nice moment to remember some of 2011's highlights: the giveaways, the shows, the favorite designs from the past twelve months. Hope you enjoy them again and happy New Year! May 2012 be as fruitful!

January giveaway- A great way to start the year! We had 74 entries!

Valentine's day giveaway- loved reading everyone's love stories! Such a treasure! This will definitely be a repeat for next year. So look out for the contest giveaway and I will need to find another beautiful necklace to giveaway.

Druzies.....I had fun finding druzies and incorporating them in necklaces. Druzy quartz are extraordinary crystals with the power to dissipate negative thoughts and emotions effectively radiating them away through many tiny points. These might appear in my shop again soon.

Art shows and festivals- I took a bit of a break from shows this year but will soon start applying again for shows this spring. I always have a blast meeting other artisans and customers. A lot of my customers inspire new designs and encourage me to continue designing.

Royal wedding day giveaway- Could not physically participate in Kate Middleton and Prince William's royal wedding but felt like celebrating by offering this necklace.

Bridesmaids earrings giveaway.... Had fun offering 5 pairs of these earrings to a bride to be!

Started playing with larger stones ......

Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy New Year! See you again next year!
