Featured Etsy Artist & Giveaway...Pluto's Gift Shop (CONTEST CLOSED, Winner announced)

We are happy to introduce to you Pluto's Gift Shop! I found this lovely shop through Etsy and I was enchanted by the beautiful pieces and all their sparkle. I had a chance to chat a little with Pluto's Gift Shop owner & creator Jennifer, she was kind enough to give us some insight into her busy life and business and she has graciously offered to give one of her gorgeous sparkling pieces away to one lucky winner!!

Pluto's Gift shop has been open for business since February 2, 2009 on Etsy, but creating is nothing new for Jennifer because her skill has been pasted down from generation to generation in her family. Pluto's Gift Shop offers a variety of jewelry pieces made with authentic Swarovski Crystal beads. Every item is personally hand crafted by Jennifer.

Here is what Jennifer had to say!

1. Who are you? My name is Jennifer Johnson. My family and I live in Kettering, Ohio just outside of Dayton. I am 24 years old. Currently, I am studying for a college degree in Accounting while working part time at a local restaurant. When I am not busy taking care of my family, working, and studying, I love to create. I love creating jewelry because, it allows me to take time out from the rush of the day and focus on creating something beautiful for someone else.


2. What made you decide to start making jewelry? I started making jewelry as a way to create unique gifts for my family and friends. This past Christmas I made Swarovski crystal jewelry for all the women on my list. After the holidays, with all the buzz about the jewelry, my sister suggested that I start an Etsy shop. I loved the idea of buying and selling handmade products. My shop opened in February of this year!


3. What is your favorite piece and why?

My favorite piece is the Spring Floral Bouquet Brooch. I created this brooch with my grandmother in mind. The first one I made is going to be her Mother’s Day present for this year.


4. Anything else you want my readers to know? All of my products are handmade by me with care and attention to detail. I use genuine, high quality materials. The majority of my jewelry is made with Swarovski crystals! Swarovski is among the best crystals in the world....


You can also find Jennifer on Twitter!!



Jennifer has graciously agreed to GIVEAWAY 1 Midnight Sparkle Bracelet (pictured below) to 1 lucky WINNER!! YAY!We are going to give everyone a chance to receive a total of 10 entries into this contest! Just leave a post for each entry!


1. Go to Pluto's Gift Shop and let us know what your favorite sparkling beauty is! (This is required to enter) This is one entry.

2. Follow our Blog or already be a follower for one entry.


3. Add Pluto's Gift Shop to your etsy favorites to earn 2 entries (leave 2 posts)


4. Tweet or blog about this contest (leave us a link to your post or tweet) and link back to this contest for 3 entries ! (leave 3 posts)
