Welcome to the creative home of artist and maker Charlotte Lyons.

favorite finds: eliwill and a give-away


Last year at Silver Bella's vending night, I left my table and made a quick dash around the room. Just wanted to see what other people were making and selling. I came upon Beth Williams' jewelry collection and my run-around stopped. O, I Ioved everything she made and chose one of her necklaces as a gift to myself. Blue stones, pearls, sparkle, it seemed to sum up Silver Bella for me and I knew I would wear it.

A year later, I've worn it almost exclusively. It's such a favorite that when the wedding came around I asked Beth to help me choose something like it to go with the dress I found. She was so great- helped me narrow the choices, made earrings to match and it was all exactly what I hoped for. In fact, the second option necklace just happened to go perfectly with my dress for the rehearsal dinner.  =]

After the wedding, I asked Beth to make some thank you's for my amazing friends. Needless to say, they were thrilled. (She made me look good in so many ways!)

I told her I was going to blog all this because I'm so grateful for her help and want her continue to make lots and lots of beautiful work. 

Well, lucky you, dear readers!

Beth has generously offered to give away not one, but TWO pair of earrings!
