ADORA by Simona Jewelry Review and #Giveaway 8/8 CLOSED

Dislcosure - free sample provided.

Do you love handmade jewelry?  I do!  I really find handmade pieces are amazing.  It's really neat to get something that someone made by hand.  They are great to purchase for yourself, but for gifts too.  I came across a wonderful handmade jewelry shop.  I want to introduce you to ADORA by Simona.  

ADORA by Simona is owned by Simona Counts.  You can tell she has a passion for making wonderful jewelry.  She has a "passion to create beauty."  She really love making one of a kind handmade pieces that are quality pieces.  You really can tell the care she takes in making her jewelry when you see it for the first time.  Her jewelry is made in Monterrey, California.  That is one of my favorite places because I fondly remember visiting the aquarium as a child.  Simona is a graduate of law school too. 

I was given the opportunity to review a piece from ADORA by Simona.  I really had a difficult time picking because all of the jewelry is equally beautiful.  I eventually chose a pendant.  I chose the "Ice Storm" pendant.  It really is magnificent.  This is drusy agate accented with sterling silver.  The agate itself is a slice.  It is really  neat.  I learned that a drusy agate has tiny little quartz crystals within it.  You can see these in the beautiful necklace.  They shimmer and are eye catching.  I love that ADORA by Simona has so much info about each piece that she offers on her website.  I was amazed to find out that agate is said to have calming properties.  Oh yes, I need to wear this all of the time!  Agate is also said to help insomnia and help give you pleasant dreams.  Very neat!

ADORA by Simona also offers earrings, bracelets, and more.  You can see the great selection of quality handmade jewelry by visiting her website.  The prices are very reasonable too!  You can purchase items directly from her website.  You can also connect with ADORA by Simona on Facebook and Twitter too. 

ADORA by Simona has generously offered a beautiful pair of handmade earrings to giveaway to one of my lucky readers.  The Heliotrope Swarovski Crystal and Vermeil Earrings are one of a kind!  They sparkle and have colors of blue, purple and pink in them.  The crystal beads are eye catching because they are very reflective.  The fascinating beads hand from vermeil hoops.  These really are lovely earrings.  What would you wear them with?
