Friday Feature and Giveaway!

And the winner is.................... Kimberly Ries!!! Enjoy your prize!!!

This week Im featuring a wonderful and cute shop, called Valebella Bracelets and More. The owner has been kind enough to put this Valentines Bookmark up for grabs! To see how to enter to win this super cute bookmark scroll to the bottom of the feature!
Valebella Bracelets are one-of-a-kind handmade bracelets featuring: Handmade Clay Beads, Swarovski Crystals & Sterling Silver Growth Chain (the bracelet allows for approx. 1/2 inch of growth, it actually grows along with you!)

I am a stay at home mother of two wonderful children, with whom I have named my business after. They are my inspiration. With the support of my amazing husband and wonderful family, I started Valebella. Luckily, business has been going quite well. My OOAK bracelets are sold in a local Long Island store. You can now purchase them direct without paying the department store mark up on Etsy. I started out by taking a jewelry making class at a local craft store. I have been crafting Jewelry for about 2 ½ years now and love it!!!

I really enjoyed it and began taking more classes, reading jewelry making books and find myself creating more and more often. I now do craft fairs, home parties, sell on etsy as well as in a local shop. It is a great way for me to continue to be a stay-at-home mom and help pay the bills. Heysista technically is my shop name.

I started out on etsy as just a buyer. “Hey Sista!” Is how me and my sisters greet each other, just family silliness. When I opened my shop I left the name. The true name of my business is Valebella Bracelets and More. The name “Valebella” is a combination of my two little girls names.

Here’s where else you can find Valebella:
On Etsy, On Flickr, and on Facebook!

Or you can Email me at Valebella [!at] optonline.net to join my monthly newsletter, mailing list includes new items, show dates, coupons and special promotions.I gladly take custom orders.
