Beloved Bijou - Giveaway!


About Beloved Bijou:

"I started sewing at the age of 3.  At that time I was just sewing buttons onto ribbons, but after a couple of years I had learned embroidery.  By middle school I was sewing on the machine.  In high school I took a Fashion Design Class which was both great fun and an excellent learning experience!
When I was in my late teens I got into making jewelry after buying a large supply of tiger tail and gemstone beads at a yard sale for $5.  Around that time my mom and dad peeked in on a jewelry making class at Mama's Minerals.  She came home and told me how they were doing it and from that day forward I was hooked!

My mother and I would participate in church and school craft fairs which would give us a chance to sell the stuff that had we made in order to buy more materials - to support our crafting habit. 

My dad would also support my hobby by buying me Mama's Minerals gift certificates so I could stock up on semi-precious beads.

During the recession, in 2010, I turned my long-time hobby into a business.
After much encouragement from my significant other, Adam, I created a web page so I could sell my stuff online.

Beloved Bijou uses high quality materials, that include semi-precious stones, crystals, pearls, and more; to ensure that your jewelry and accessories will be cherished adornments to be handed down from generations to generations.

We are also an environmentally conscious and Eco-friendly company that takes great pleasure in creating reclaimed pieces of art.  Using vintage buttons and recycled graphic tees we create affordable pieces of one-of-a-kind wearable art for all ages.

Follow My Blog!  http://belovedbijou.blogspot.com/" - Myria, creator of Beloved Bijou Adornments & Accessories.

I was introduced to Beloved Bijou a few months ago, and they have some absolutely amazing creations in their store.  Myria is so talented!  Full of vintage charm, I am so happy to be able to highlight a few of their items for you.

First of all, check out these awesome military button filigree rings!  You *need* to click on the photos to see the details.  They are unique and vintage and I adore them.  Aside from being a fantastic accessory to any outfit, they are a great way to pay tribute to a family member or friend who is currently or has served in the military.  As a former military spouse, I'd be proud to sport the Navy button ring!



A few other pieces I am *loving* from Beloved Bijou:

This is *only* $20!  It's beautiful!


I adore this.  It's just so pretty and feminine.


So elegant and beautiful.

At the risk of listing everything at Beloved Bijou, I will just stop here and tell you that you simply MUST go browse their Etsy shop.  Right now.  Stop what ever else you are doing and GO!  Then, go check out their Facebook page where you can find even more beautiful items that are not listed on Etsy, http://www.facebook.com/belovedbijou!
