I’m really excited to be doing my first giveaway today. The above earrings were generously donatedÂ byÂ (and designed by) (and hand-crafted by) Siobhan Byron.
Siobhan fell into jewelry design during college, and people would see her wearing her own unique designs and ask her for custom creations. Almost all of herÂ pieces are one-of-a-kind and designed on impulse. She says “I’ll be driving down Western Ave., thinking aboutÂ my grocery list and an image of a necklace idea will pop into my head.” Talk about creative. If I’m thinking of my grocery list I’m wondering if I should get regular oreos or double stuffed. Siobhan makes things she’d wear herself, but her designs appeal to a broad spectrum of people, ages 5 to 75 – even her husband!
Siobhan does all of the designing, creating, marketing, merchandising and photographingÂ of her jewelry, so it’s a 7 day-a-week, 18 hours-a-day job, on top of her two other jobs, with no assistant. Her jewelry ranges from $65 to $300, and can be purchased from her website, Siobhan Byron.com, or Circles in Stuyvesant Plaza. You can also find Siobhan on Facebook.
If you would like to win the pair of sterling silver earrings pictured above, please be the 24th commenter on this post. And then go tell everyone about her!
