Giveaway – Diamond Sand Necklace

by Sherry Riter in Giveaway,Product

There’s nothing like a great Etsy shop to catch my attention and Diamond Sand is one of those shops.

I love getting to know the owners of an Etsy online shop because each has a unique experience that motivated them to make handmade items to sell. I had the pleasure of interviewing Lisa at Diamond Sand and I’m sure you will find her delightfully refreshing and talented. So Lisa, please tell us all about you and Diamond Sand

    I have always been a creative person. Some of my earliest memories are of my Mum and me sitting together sewing and making all manner of things, my biggest passion being clothes. Jewelery began as an extension to that. I love the idea of creating something that someone would want to wear, that someone would choose something I had made for a special day, or for every day.

    I was talking to a friend one day about a little fantasy I had of opening a shop, and they suggested Etsy to me. I fell in love with Etsy straight away and so ‘Diamond Sand’ was born. I love nothing more than spending time creating new pieces of jewelery. I love every bead and stone that goes into a piece, and as anyone who creates something knows, you pour a little piece of yourself in to every item.

    I have been on Etsy for nearly a year, and it has been a fantastic experience. The wonderfully talented and clever people that I have had the pleasure of discovering and making friends with is just astonishing. I am really proud to be part of it.

    I think what makes my pieces special is that I really do wish the wearer a lot of love and luck. It’s so much more than making a sale to me. I want much more, for the items to become something special to the wearer. So much so, that when friends fall in love with something I’ve made, they may well very soon find it winging its way to them in the post.

    At the moment my jewelery can only be bought via Etsy at the following link:

    but I post all new listings via my Facebook page too, so you can keep up to date with all the goings on in my little shop:

    If you were to ask me where I would like to be a year from now, I would like nothing more than to have bought a beautiful rustic house in the Spanish countryside, with room for a small studio, in which I can work and be inspired by the wonderful views from its window, and making a living doing something I love. I know its a bit of a fantasy, but I do understand that to achieve certain goals and dreams there is a lot of discipline behind the scenes. One dream that I have achieved is living in the wonderful city of Barcelona. I came here six years ago and I certainly feel like I can turn around after that time and say I have achieved that ambition. Perhaps my little jewelery studio in the Spanish countryside will be next.

Thank you so much for sharing your shop and allowing us to get to know you better Lisa!!

EVERYBODY WINS!

Red I am angry with you! Angry I tell you! These items are beautiful and I thought I wouldn't be able to afford anything so I went to look at Diamond Sand. Well these items are so reasonably priced I am now mad at you for sharing this site with me because I want things and it's Christmas season and I can't buy for me. booooooooooohooooooooo!
I loved the Hand Wired Amethyst Beads on Brass With Grey Zebra Jasper, it reminds me of my grandmother (she had long boobs too)
I am going to go like both you and Diamond Sand on FB and I already am following you publicly.

Hi, I own a piece of jewelry from Lisa's collection at Diamond Sand, i Have to share with you all that it is made to last! So much love goes into each piece and you can tell that by the beautiful quality. I've had my lovely bracelet since the beginning of summer, if not before, and it has withstood every manner of abuse i, and my baby daughter have threw at it. I highly recommend Diamond sand for both quality and value. I hope all readers go and purchase there own little piece of perfect! x
