Christmas is coming up quickly and I am very excited about this giveaway. I met Annie from Studio Luma at the Handmade Marketplace at Blissdom. I was drawn to the beautiful colours she uses and the glass beading on her jewellery, and even more intrigued when I found out she makes every piece by hand. She even makes hers reLuma line from recycled glass.
If you’re in Ottawa you can go and see her booth for yourself at the Craft and Artisan Fair taking place at the Glebe Community Centre November 15 to 17, you can also find her on Facebook here, but I am very happy to say that Annie is providing one of her most vibrant products as a gift to one of my readers – the silk wrap button bracelet. Click on that link and just look at the gorgeous colours.
Leave a comment below telling me what colour you would pick if you won (my favourite is the blueberry… I think… it’s hard to choose). You can also take a minute to read Annie’s 10 true facts about herself on the home page.
She happens to be a mother of two who started this business just over a year ago, leaving a secure job as a teacher to do something that she really loves. She’s also going to continue running the business after moving her family to Panama in the new year. (Looking forward to reading more on her blog about that adventure).
(I’ve been visiting the site about once a week since Blissdom because I’m still thinking about her sweet leaf pendant as a gift for my sister…)
ETA: I used a random number generator to choose the winner and it choose commenter 14, Delta. Congratulations.
