July Giveaway and Summer Update

Summer is half over and it’s going by so fast!  We are trying to enjoy the sunshine when we can – and I try to squeeze in as much jewelry making as possible during nap times or down times when Matt is home.  Desperately trying to prepare for two sure to be awesome craft markets next month – Sunset Beach Social and Viva Vancouver (click on the “Upcoming Events” tab up top for more details).  If you are in the Vancouver area – you have to check these markets out – there’s so much to see and do – a fun time for the whole family.

I have been getting so many new supplies in and I can’t wait to experiment and make some new pieces.  I’ll be sure to show some off on our instagram feed!  Speaking of our instagram feed (@virukkagifts) – we are having a Giveaway this week!  You can win this resin flower earrings and adjustable ring set by simply tagging a friend in the comments under the image and both of you will win your own set.  Check it out!


Work in Progress: Freshwater Pearl Chip Necklaces

The minute I saw a strand of these blush pink freshwater pearls I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them.  Each pearl chip is unique paired with a delicate silver plated chain.

Work in Progress: Raw Cut Stone Necklaces

I have been working on a new product.  I just love raw cut stones… and I wanted to go a bit more casual with them by wrapping them in wire and hanging them on simple black cord.  They are a bit time consuming – wire usually is.  But I am excited to have them all done and ready for the next Craft Market!

Triple Agate Necklace

Let me introduce you to one of my biggest supporters, my lovely sister – Trisha!  Here she is sporting my triple agate round necklace.  The stones she selected had a hint of green, which really went well with her mint green sweater 🙂  She has her own blog here!

New in the Shop: Amulet Agate Necklaces

I am so glad to announce that some new pieces are in the shop!  I fell in love with these stones because of their cut, color and natural pattern.  They really do stand out!  Find out more, here.
