Giveaway Sparkling Bliss Pink Flower Earrings

Michelle, who has a shop named Sparkling Bliss, has a great love for jewelry design, which is evident when looking at this week's giveaway item, a pair of pink glass flower earrings:
Pink Glass Flower Earrings
Here is Michelle's description of the item: Vintage inspired and oh so pretty. Designed and quality hand-crafted with loving care by jewelry artist Michelle Hynek. These earrings were created using pretty pink glass lily beads dangling from pretty copper hoops with copper findings. They measure about 2 inches and are finished off with copper French hooks. Comes beautifully packaged in a lovely gift box for immediate gift giving or as as a treat for yourself!

Here is a bit more about Michelle:

When did you start selling? 
I started selling more than four years ago. I opened my Etsy shop January 11, 2007 and haven't looked back since.

What's the story behind your company's name? 

My husband gave me the nickname "twi" and I chose sparkling because it reminds me of sparkling jewels. I later changed the "twi" to "bliss" to better reflect my shop.

What is your favorite product? 

My "London Night" earrings are my favorite because I love vintage lucite and the frosted appearance of the beads. Come take a look!

Where do you find inspiration/how did you come about making these items?

I find inspiration all around me. It might sound cliche, but nature, music, sights and sounds all add to the design process. Sometimes while I'm browsing for beads, I envision how I can bring them together. I can visually create a piece and it's exciting when I bring the beads to my studio and they mesh, just as they did in my mind.

What are 5 things you want people to think when they see your product?

I'd like people to see my jewelry as elegant, transitional, functional, romantic and fun.

When you're not creating what do you like to do? 

I enjoy shopping, spending time with my husband and my cat "Buckets", feasting on chocolates or anything else sweet and daydreaming about my next design.
