Out of town

I'll be out of town for about a month, from June 24 - July 26th. The site will be open and orders can be placed during that time, but please note that I will not be able to fill or ship any orders until I return.

I am very excited about my upcoming trips. I think the last time I successfully got my husband to take a month off was when we were in our early 20's and we had the opportunity to backpack across Europe for a few weeks. This vacation is going to be just as awesome, and I am so excited. First we're going to be in LA for a friend's wedding, and from there we are going to Malaysia to see my mom's half of the  family (I haven't been back for almost 20 years!), and to finish it off we are spending a week in Hong Kong. I haven't really done much international travel in the last ten years, so this trip is going to be amazing!

Thanks for your understanding, and have a wonderful month!

I Like it Rough

Amethyst has had an almost hypnotic effect on me lately. I can't seem to get enough purple! When I saw these rough and tumble stones, I just had to get a strand. Edgy and vibrant, these stones seemed perfect for rings.

This raw amethyst ring is part of my Spring / Summer 2010 collection. The stones are pretty substantial, so this ring is not for the faint of heart. I love it though, and tend to match it up with cool and flowy bohemian summer dresses. Also available in sterling silver (shown in gold-filled) for those of you that don't go for the gilded.

Find us on Facebook :)

Ok, so I know it's a little late. But better late than never, right? Now you can become a fan of Zurina Ketola Designs handmade jewelry on Facebook! Invite your friends, family, and anyone else who appreciates handcrafted jewelry to check out our Facebook page. As always with social networking, the more the merrier!

I think the social networking site will be a great way to connect to lovers of handmade jewelry. I like the idea of having another avenue for giveaways and specialty discounts for my customers.

And as a little incentive for anyone who loves a little free jewelry, I'll do my first jewelry giveaway when the Zurina Ketola Designs FB page reaches 100 "people who like this"!

I haven't decided on what to feature as the prize yet, so any suggestions would be fantastic. Cheers!
