Happy Holidays!

Let me start with the good news: After having to pull a second winner from last month’s FREE GIFT giveaway, unlike our first winner, Ragina Young did respond and her free gift was delivered safe and sound. Congratulations again, Ragina!

On to the Holidays! For us, October brings Halloween, and then as my sister says, “The downfall of all of our pocket books” begins in November. That is because we have many birthdays starting in November and then on to Thanksgiving, more Birthdays in December (including my son who will be 2), and then of course Christmas…and so on, and so on.

With the addition of over 6000 products to the site, we have added some new items in the Holiday Jewelry section with more being added later today and throughout the week. Keep in mind while some of these items are novelty items (like the Santa watches), others can be worn daily like the necklace below:

Also, don’t forget that when you are gifting that bottle of cheer you can do it in style with our decorative Wine/Bottle Gift Bags. Please select your favorite color bag from the drop down menu.

As always, I love to design custom pieces that are not listed on the site. For those of you interested in seeing some new pieces that ARE for sale but not yet listed on the site you can visit our Facebook website here. There we have a few albums of some older items as well as MANY new items that were never listed on the website, as they are being used for Private sales to registered website members, and Facebook “Friends”. Here is just an example of items not listed:

"Pointed Cluster" bracelet

I have been making the above bracelet for more than 2 years, and Swarovski just keeps adding more and more beautiful colors of this particular crystal to their line. Most of these bracelets that I have made have all been special order with a mix of colors, or as in the one pictured below, as a donation to the St. Joseph’s Prep “Hawk Huddle” fundraiser. My nephew plays football for them so that was one of the ways I showed my support. This bracelet is comprised of The Prep’s school colors.

St. Joseph's Prep "Hawk Huddle" Swarovski Bracelet. Donated by Isabella's Beads and raffled off to one lucky winner!

If you desire to have a standard “Pointed Cluster” bracelet made (in any single color or mixed colors) you can do so for $135. PleaseĀ Contact Us with your special request. We’ll keep you posted on new items being added. Don’t forget to add us on Facebook to stay current with all Private Sale items!

New Winner - Update

Filed under: Uncategorized

Last month we selected Natalia Korobeinikova as the winner of our FREE GIFT drawing. When a winner is selected they automatically receive an E-mail letting them know that they won the drawing, and also showing them what they won. There is also a link in that E-mail showing them that there name is listed in the blog along with a photo of their prize.

As a precaution, prior to shipping anything outside of the USA (unless ordered) I always send a personal E-mail to that recipient asking them to verify that the address that we have on file is correct. We obviously have no way of knowing whether or not a user provides a valid address when creating their account, until we are actually shipping an item (and even then it might not be their own address!). I have made several attempt to contact Natalia Korobeinikova with no reply. Therefore, I have selected a new winner for the free gift.

The new winner for the October drawing is Ragina Young. We have sent Ragina a “Letter of Congratulations” and I will make an attempt to contact her as well. We hope that Ragina will be available to receive her free gift! Stay tuned, as November’s winner will be announced on the 15th of the month.
