I’m a little late getting this post out, but no matter the time, you’ll want to listen up! If you’re a book-lover of Christian fiction and haven’t heard of Casey over at Writing for Christ, then there’s something wrong! Casey was one of the first Christian fiction book bloggers I stumbled upon and the girl who inspired me to begin blogging! So I owe her a lot! 😉
Casey is a girl of many talents, as not only does she blog about books and is in the process of writing her own Contemporary Woman’s fiction, but she also has a jewelry-making business on the side! Yep, she’s the owner of Bug’s Beads on Etsy.
If you’ve been following Casey’s book blog, but have never looked into her jewelry, I highly recommend that you do! There are such beautiful pieces over there! Earrings, bracelets, necklaces, anklets…and she even has a new product line. It’s called “Mother and Me” and right now she has a pair of identical bracelets fit for a mother and her daughter. SO cute!! 😀
|My package from Casey’s Bug’s Beads!|
For this post, Casey send me this gorgeous bracelet you see on the right. I don’t own anything so delicate-looking and dainty–I just love it! The colored beads are brown, but it’s such a light shade that you can wear this bracelet with many different colors and it’d still go. And just in case you can’t see from the picture, the other beads are a white-pearl color and has silver separators on each side of the brown beads. Very simple, but beautiful, design!
As I said before, it’s a delicate, dainty looking bracelet. But don’t let looks fool you–while it looks delicate, it’s very durable and made with quality items. You can tell just by looking at it. The beads are small, and strung onto a strong and bendable wire.
|A up-close look at my bracelet!|
The clasps are very securely fastened to the wire. Very clean, too, I might add! No extra wire hanging out anywhere. There’s a little pendent on mine that, I think, says ‘booka’. Not sure what that means, but it’s cute and I like it!
(And, hey, it almost says “books” and since I’m a book-lover…yeah, that’s another reason why I like it! 😉
What else is there to say? Hmm…nothing much, except that I highly recommend Casey’s Bug’s Beads to everyone both for the beauty and quality of the jewelry. This bracelet I received is perfect for adults and (because it’s so ‘dainty’) it would even look great on a young girls arm.
Casey has a lot of other pieces of jewelry over at Bug’s Beads, so I recommend you checking them out. And if you do, keep an eye out for these earrings on the right. I just discovered them…and realized how well they would go with my bracelet!
Hmm…now all I have to do is find a necklace to go with it, and I’m set!
Guess what?! It’s giveaway time! Yep! Casey has generously (and sweetly!) offered to host a giveaway for one of her bracelets. It’s this pretty brown, pink, and pearl beaded one below. Isn’t it lovely?! Follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter below in order to enter!

I really like the Teen Black and Pearl bracelet. http://www.etsy.com/listing/95270574/teen-girlladies-glass-beaded-bracelet
I have really small wrists measuring around 6 inches inches in circumference, so I usually get stuck wearing children's bracelets.
Thanks for the giveaway! All of the bracelets are so adorable! 😀
