Monthly Giveaway - New Item!

Congratulations to Ann in NJ, who won the Apatite Fly Away Home necklace!   Thanks to everyone who entered!

This month's piece is near and dear to my heart: the Inner Strength Necklace. 

The pendant is made with Apatite and Hematite, two semi-precious stones with powerful meta-physical properties.


Apatite is the "Stone of Acceptance", known to help the wearer with healing, balance and seeing inner truth.

Hematite is the "Stone of the Mind", known to help the wearer balance energies between the body, mind and spirit, and dissolve negativity.





Click here to see this piece in my Etsy shop.

To enter, please leave a comment below saying you would like to enter the giveaway, and please provide your email so I can contact you if you win!   If you would prefer to enter via email, you can send me a message at:  ellieandsteve@verizon.net

This month, you can get additional entries!!   To get additional entries, go to my Etsy shop, Shining Stones, and check out some of my pieces... then come back and comment with your favorites!   I will give one additional entry per item you mention!   

The winner will be chosen at random (my daughter picks a name from a hat) on January 1st.   I'm sure we could all use a little Inner Strength once the holiday craziness is done!
This giveaway is open internationally.

Thank you!

  8. Holy frijoles, you have been a busy girl lately! Please enter me in the drawing and I absolutely love the new christmas tree earrings and the snowman earrings and the angel earrings and I need all of them.
    My mom collects angels but last year she said she didn't want any more because she had no where else to put them, so I could give her ones she could wear and not have to dust!

  40. Hello Ellie, I'm from Malaysia and I got so excited when you mentioned that this giveaway is open internationally. I would love to enter!
    I love the Flyaway Home necklace with black raspberry pearls, and the Thank you bracelet, if I could have it with a 'believe' charm, it would be perfect! Thank you.

  45. A ring that a gave to a friend and looks delicious on her is the Black Raspberry Pearl Ring.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I like the orange sherbert earrings. I wear peach often and never have the right color to go with so end up with nekkid ears. Eek!

    ReplyDelete
  47. The Tahitian Moon necklace is gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  48. This is such a beautiful necklace, and the meanings behind the stones really speak to me. The coincidence of when you posted this and what I've been going through in my own life is clearly no coincidence, so if I don't win I just may have to purchase this anyway! Thanks for this.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I absolutely love the Teaberry Tree necklace. Another one I've been thinking about since I first saw it...!

    ReplyDelete
  50. The black raspberry pearl ring looks as good as it sounds. Beautiful name, and beautiful ring!

    ReplyDelete
  51. The Sapphire Blue Swarovski Drop necklace is gowa-jus, and beautifully photographed!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love the Onyx ring. I hope you're compiling a list, because I am notorious for buying for myself during times of the year when most people are buying for others!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm a fan of the Vintage Style Butterfly ring, though I personally am more of a silver kind of girl. It really does have that vintage look to it--great piece!

    ReplyDelete
  54. The Black Raspberry necklace will be mine! (Despite your daughter's past refusal to draw my name and give me a Hanukkah present. Here's your chance to make it up to me, Greta!)

    ReplyDelete
  55. The Ring of Garnet is striking!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh, the Winter Morning Necklace is another piece that I really love. When I first saw the photo, I thought the pattern went all the way around the neck, kind of like a choker. Imagine that! (I would LOVE that, actually.)

    ReplyDelete
  57. The Thank You bracelet is also beautiful. (I swear, I will only comment a few more times at most. I didn't realize so many of your pieces would speak to me!)

    ReplyDelete
  58. The Butterfly ring! Like the vintage-style one, only in my beloved silver! And you thought December was a busy time for you...I think you may be making jewelry for me for all of next year! Oy oy oy...

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh, the Black Raspberry Circle pendant necklace. So pretty. I believe I wasn't picked for that giveaway, either! :~)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Ooh, Pansy ring! My lord, I really do have to place an order whether or not I'm picked for this giveaway, don't I...!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I really like the Girls' Night Out necklace, but maybe your next giveaway could incorporate renaming this piece? With all due respect (obviously I love your work), I don't think the name of this necklace does it justice. It looks much more elegant than it sounds! Sigh, yet another favourite...

    ReplyDelete
  62. I can't decide between the Ruby Red ring and the Midnight Blue Swarovski pearl ring, so I'm going to imagine I'm wearing both of them. Again, so striking!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Finally, the Amethyst Twist ring. I love the colour, and I'll bet your other commenters love that this is my last post! Thank you for doing this giveaway, Ellie. Now I want to buy out your store. Good for you, bad for me! :~)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Gorgeous! And that extra entries thing finally got me over inertia to really check out your etsy shop... all in one comment here to save scrolling for your other commenters:

    The rings really seem like your masterpieces. The Bronzy Glow one has great colors, and the Perfect Pearl is so warm looking. Just perfect for this time of year. The Black Raspberry line is so nice too - I think the necklace is my favorite, but it'd go so well with the earrings... and the Girls' Night Out necklace is just named perfectly. I was thinking, "Wow, that necklace is so pretty. I'd love to wear it to go out... with the girls... just like the name says. Huh." =)

    ReplyDelete
  65. The Mothers Bracelet is pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Thank you Melinda. I hadn't seen the Ring of Garnet. Wow! It's gorgeous.

  70. The Emerald Forest Tree of Life necklace took me by surprise.

  73. Cheryl, please don't thank me, just let me win, all right? :~)

    Seriously, Ellie, I think you're going to have to add up everything I mentioned and send me a bill. Because ME WANTY.
