Ok I'd admit it....I'm a candle nut! And I came across these woodwick candles, they are beautiful, smell wonderful, and they crackle like a camp fire as they burn! If you haven't seen them come check them out, and they're hand made, what could be better :)

This olive colored, sparkling, iridescent heart pendant created by Earthworks Studio, is the center piece of the necklace pictured here. It is suspended by two strands of vintage faceted seed beads, hooked to two boro beads created by Quinlan Glass, and highlighted with Swarovski crystal. All are brought together with a silver chain and a simple heart toggle clasp for a truly unique necklace.

A charm bracelet blending the rich colors of the Southwest and the glass artistry of the Northwest.
The boro heart was created by Earthworks Studios. The colors swirling within it's depths reminded me of the Grand Canyon, of water and desert, of sea and sand. To continue with this idea, turquoise hearts were added along with lots of specialty cut Swarovski crystal in a sea opal and iridescent copper color. A few bronze nugget pearls and some silver hearts were also added to give depth and texture to this one of a kind bracelet to grace the arm of any western girl at heart.http://www.xannasjewelrybox.com/index_files/Page1773.htm

Xanna's Jewelry Box is participating in a phenomenal blog event called "One World, One Heart". This is a wonderful opportunity to meet others just like yourself, make new friends, and get a glimpse of the world around us and see what others are doing. Thousand of blogs are participating in this event, and I'm so excited to be a part of it all, and I encourage you to click on the link below and find out more about all the other bloggers participating.
Who am I? My name is Xanna. I'm fairly new to blogging as my blog will attest to every once in awhile :) I created Xanna's Jewelry Box as an outlet for some of my creative ideas and I'm a dancer instructor. I teach mostly ballet and jazz to 3-12 year olds, where creativity is worn like a fancy dress and honesty is like a summer breeze, sweet and refreshing.
OK enough about me for the moment, now it's time to get to know all of you and have a little fun doing it, so on to the bracelet you could win by just leaving a comment!
"Spring Overture" bracelet
Length: 7 1/4-9"
Overture: an instrumental prelude to an opera, oratorio or ballet.
To me it is the beginning to something beautiful for more the one sense! This bracelet has the warm colors of a spring sunrise, with these beautiful boro beads and spacers by BC Lampworks. The three strands of dancing pearls between each set of boro beads, are the reminder that winter is not quite ready to go quietly, and the sparkle of the 2XAB Swarovski helps to unit the two striking colors! All of this will sit strikingly on your wrist!
This could be yours...Simply leave a comment on this post. Make sure you leave some way for me to contact you should you win... a link back to your blog or website or your email. That's it!
Have fun and check out The Whimsical Bohemian for a list of all the blogs playing this year! You will have until 12:00 am Pacific Standard time February 15th to leave your comments, Winner will be announced later in the afternoon on February 15th.
UP DATE (1/27/10)!!!!! For each 100 comments I receive for the drawing I will add another item to the drawing. This is my first year an I didn't realize how phenomenal it really was! Now your odds are better :) ~XannaDrum Roll.....Here are the two new prizes! If I get over 300 entries I'll then add another, have fun!!

Anyway I received my tent last week and was sooooo excited to start taking pictures, because I live in the North West of the United States and it has been raining non stop, and it has been impossible to go out and take pics of the new items I have created! As I start opening up my box of goodies, I notice the tent is HUGE, like able to fit a small child huge! Ok.... well I can work with that. Then I pull out my background piece, ummm it's blue/gray, nope can't work with that I wanted blk/wht! So now this is going from bad to worse, and I'm beginning to think maybe I should have gone with the DIY model on the web! Now I move on to the lights; bulbs (check), tripods (check), lights fixtures (check), swivel piece to hook light fixtures to tripod......Nope! Well this has been a complete and utter waist of time and money and then I read their return policy...and it just keeps getting better and better! I'm thinking maybe I'll call them direct.
Luckily we have since had a sunny day, so I ran outside took pics like a mad woman and posted them just as quickly. I hope you enjoy the posts and my little bit of ranting ~Xanna :)
