Michabella Creations Giveaway *giveaway closed*

Michabella Creations Giveaway *giveaway closed*


Today's giveaway is for a Sea Life Charm Necklace from Michabella Creations! (ARV $32) Open Worldwide


Isn't it gorgeous?! Here's some more info:
"Vintage natural brass starfish and seahorse charms are accented with achunky Lime Green Quartz teardrop bead. Finished off with ornatenatural brass chain and hook closure."

Michabella Creations was created by two friends, Cindy and Michelle, who shared a love for beading and handcrafted jewelry. They have gone on to create a successful business with beautiful, customizable jewelry. We had the opportunity to interview Michelle and here is what she had to say:

1. How/Why was Michabella Creations started?
Michabella Creations was started after I was a stay at home for about a year and I needed to find something for myself. I've always been creative and soon learned some friends had started making jewelry. I taught myself some basic techniques and a few months later, joined forces with a friend to start our own business.

2. What is your favorite part about running Michabella Creations?
I enjoy having my own company that I can make the decisions for. I am happy I've had the opportunity to stay at home and watch my daughter grow, and still have something I love to do.

3. Do you Haiku?



I haven't written a haiku since elementary school, but here goes:

Made in remembrance
A family pet who passed
May bring others joy




4) What is your favorite piece?
That's tough to say. I would probably go with my Jaded necklace because it combines some of my favorite materials. I love working with natural brass, and it looks great paired with the large serpentine jade rectangles and flower pendant. I love green and bold pieces!


5) Where do you get your inspiration?
I get my inspiration from many places: trends, fashion, something I might have seen on someone that I turn into my own creation, and the changing seasons.

6) I see that when you sell your cancer awareness pieces you donate to different cancer charities. Is there anything you'd like to share with our readers about that?
Both my partner and I have had family members affected by breast cancer and we are very fortunate to still have them in our lives. Not everyone is that lucky. It is a cause that's very dear to us and we want to give back when we can. We have also donated to the Children's Miracle Network and helped out financially with the care of a local boy fighting cancer. We also work with the SPCA with the sale of our Simon bracelet, which I used in my hiaku. Animals are also very dear to me and this year I will be starting to donate to more animal charities.
