A Little Bit Of Pretty Review & Giveaway - CLOSED -

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

I'm gonna share with you a pretty etsy shop that sells dainty jewelries and stunning accessories to complete your wardrobe. I heart the shop and the owner too! Because she's so kind and a very good example of a good customer service. Her name is Kim, she's a native Canadian and she sells beautiful jewelries in her etsy shop, A Little Bit Of Pretty.

I'm very lucky and very happy to be able to review one of her necklaces. I'm currently in love with anything purple right now so I opt for the Silver and Gemstone Linked Necklace which has hints of purple on it. And this is what I received 10 days later:


First things first, the shipping is quite fast considering I live in the other part of the continent. And look at the photo above! The necklace came in a pretty white box adorned with colorful sheer bows! Kim also sent me a cute birdie pink card with personalize message inside (Thank you Kim!). The package is ready for gift-giving so it's really worth it if you buy your holiday gifts at A Little Bit Of Pretty. She also include a small stack of papers in the package, I think you could use it for a gift tag or to write a special note shall you decide to give it to someone special. I love the personal touch in the package Kim sent me, but what I love more... is the item in the package:


Isn't it so lovely? I L.O.V.E it ! You can tell the good quality of the necklace by the color and texture of the beads. The silver and gemstone beads are linked together with sterling silver wire. It's sturdy and doesn't feel heavy at all so you can wear it from morning til night without having to feel like your neck being dragged on (you know what i mean? ;p).

And I love that it's so versatile so I can wear it with anything. I have worn it with my tops and dresses even with tees and jeans, and I have gotten quite many compliments on it.



Kim also has many enticing selections in her store, from earrings, necklaces to bridal collections which are very fascinating and pleasing to the eye. Whoever worn it would feel immaculately pretty.

Here's what Kim says on A Little Bit of Pretty :
I have been making my jewelry for myself, friends, and family for about 6 years now. It all started when I picked my first beading magazine and thought "I can do this". Growing up my sister and I were always doing crafty things, thanks to our mom, but nothing really stuck with me the way jewelry does. And since I was in school and couldn't afford to buy any, why not make it for myself?

So it was mainly a hobby while I was in university, but when I graduated I decided to take it a little more seriously. Now thanks to a year in the "real world" and a well timed recession (for me anyways), I am going into business for myself. Incidentally, I have a Bachelor of Science in Geology. Highly employable, but very economy influenced, and Canada's economy is all about our natural resources.


Kim ships worldwide and she's very open for discussion. She's determined to make her customer happy and I think this is a very important issue because this is what makes you want to go back to the store again knowing that you will be satisfied with your purchases.

Do good while you shop:
Kim is currently running a marathon for Joints in Motion in Athens, Greece October 2010 and she is donating 10% of every sale to the Arthritis Society of Canada. So when you buy something from her you are donating part of your money to a good cause. It feels nice to do something good, especially when you're spending money ^o^


SWEET DEALS:
  • Currently her gemstone jewellery is all One-Of-A-Kind and ready-to-ship, and SHIPPING IS FREE!
  • Her bridal jewellery is made-to-order and she will customize anything, from colours to lengths, etc.



WIN WIN WIN !
Kim of A Little Bit Of Pretty has kindly offer one of you lucky TB readers a very pretty Earrings from her collection. This goldfilled hoop earrings are wire wrapped with garnet faceted rounds and Swarovski crystals.
