Skye Jewels Meets Menagerie Studio and a Friendship is Born!!

I was browsing around on Etsy one day, looking for fun things to put in a Shabby Chic Treasury. I can not remember how I found Menagerie Studio, but I was awestruck by the beauty of these amazing pieces!! I went totally crazy and spent over $100 in Martha's shop! To this day I have not regretted it for even a second!! The charms are fantastic and unique! Martha was so sweet, she sent me a message saying how discouraged she was getting until she saw my order go through! I was surprised that she was not selling more so I offered to help!


Among the first charms I purchased are this house and the flower just below. I LOVE them! All the attention to detail and all the work put into them is amazing!!  I love the way they look and feel and I am proud to wear any of these creations!
 I think that Martha is one talented lady and we have joined forces to offer you a necklace of your very own made with Martha's Newest Charm Shape!! Keep reading to get to that part...
Before I reveal too much, I wanted to show you a couple more pieces. These crosses are so pretty and can go with so many styles. You can make them very casual or quite dressy depending on how you accentuate them in a  necklace.
 I really enjoy working with these, they bring an essence of romance to my jewelry and I LOVE Romance!! The next photo is the piece you are all waiting for. The piece that you get to take home should you be the winner!!
 Who would not want to win this gorgeous necklace!! This Fleur de Lis was created just for me and I love it!! Now, I could keep it...but...I am giving it away instead!! Martha sent me this pendant and a handful of limited edition beads to co-ordinate with the paper in the pendant. I assembled it for you now all you have to do for your chance to win is leave a comment!! Just leave a comment here and I will draw a name on December 1st for the Necklace!! Now I know you want another chance to win this...so here is another chance... Go to Martha's Menagerie Studio Blog and follow her blog. Really simple really, Martha needs a few new fans and I want to help her get them! So once you have followed her blog, come back and leave me a SECOND comment saying you are a follower. If you already follow mention that in a second message as well. This will help me keep track of the entries!! Good luck!!

Oh this necklace is great! And considering that I live in New Orleans where the Fleur de Lis is pretty much our identity, I think I need this! And my mom's name is Martha - so I think it's fate :) Can't wait to check out her etsy now.
