Vingo ~ Jour Joli!

Today's word is :

Mercury Glass

I'm reposting this because today's sale is for a CUSTOM Jour Jolie! It will be similar to this one, but you can tell me what theme and colors you prefer. This is a handmade piece, so I won't be doing a sale on these again anytime soon. I'm only doing it for Vingo. These are reg. 65.00. Today only, it will be 52.00. You will use, and enjoy this so much. I guarantee it. I love mine, and keep it by my bed. Now, I wonder how I lived without it for so long! Here's the original post....

I absolutely love things that are beautiful, yet serve a purpose. This is how "Jour Joli" was born. It basically means "Everyday Beauty" I needed a holder of some kind for my bedside table to hold my cell phone, ipod, etc.. So, I figured why not make it beautiful, and something that will help me to a.)always have a place for my phone b.)listen to music c.) watch movies on my phone or ipod, or d.) to hold other things, like my business cards. I made it with spaces on either side for cords for charging. It also has silver little arms for holding the phone/ipod in place so it won't slide off. The vintage rose paper is over 100 years old. It is the original. These can be custom ordered with monograms, words/names, different themes, masculine styled, and whatever ideas you might have.. I love hearing other people's ideas! The silver has been aged, but can be made in a bright silver. It's made from non-toxic, lead-free silver. Each one will be slightly different as these are hand cut, hand crafted.

Hope your day is full of everyday beauty as well~

Day 3 ~ It's all about Rings!!

Today's word is......


Today's sale is all about the rings! I hand make each ring from antique/vintage sources. Old abalone seashell pearl buttons, coins from England, an old brooche, vintage rhinestones...these are what make up the unique rings. They are somewhat rustic, and not perfectly round due to the handmade nature of each one. They are one of a kind pieces, and I love wearing unusual jewelry that can't be purchased just anywhere. I gave them each their own little Italian name fitting of their design. These are normally $35.00 each, today only, they are $25.00. I have sized them, and named them on the photo. If you have any questions, please drop me an email.
Tramonto~size 6.5
Bagliore~size 6.5
Pulsante~size 6
Moneta~ size 7
Gotico~ size 6.5

Hope you're having fun playing Vingo! Have a great day everyone!!
