A Package From Cyprus

Rimi of An Air of Surprise hosted an earring giveaway in early January. 
The giveaway was sponsored by Victoria Letemendia of Lavender Field on Etsy.  Much of Victoria's jewelry features crochet.  Some items such as her bib necklaces have geometric motifs while others have stacks of tiny crocheted disks.  All are very unique and colorful.  I know of no other jewelry designer who makes anything similar!  So, you can imagine that I was thrilled to learn that I had won the giveaway.  Victoria's package arrived from Cyprus and in it, I found a lovely drawstring organza bag (jewelry purchases will arrive in her handmade pouches) containing the jade, crochet, and chrysocolla earrings that I had won.  The color combination is perfect and they are very well-made.  I'm thrilled and cannot wait to wear them!  Thank you again, Victoria and Rimi!
