I am sorry to neglect my poor little blog, but between working on "work" and other projects, and my more frequent fits of doing absolutely nothing, I have not had the time. ;) But tonight, I simply MUST take the time to gush about an Etsy seller that I've recently purchased from, La PerLaA! She is an Italian artist who creates lovely beaded jewelry. My favorite items of hers are the bits of sea glass that have been transformed into pendants by creating a tapestry of tiny beads around the edges.

I could go on and on and ON about this fabulous lady, because she is just that great, but I'll keep it short and to the point.

Here's why you should definitely consider checking out her shop and then--yes!--making a purchase!

  1. The most obvious reason to shop La PerLaA would be the beauty and quality of her items. This lovely specimen {above} is what I purchased, for my mother's birthday next month. (Don't tell!!!) And this is even more beautiful in person.
  2. The price is unbeatable. This was $24. Yes, $24 United States Dollars. And that includes shipping. From Italy!
  3. Now allow me to follow the previous statement with this: shipping is FAST! It took exactly 7 days to arrive in my mailbox after clicking the "Pay Now" button.
  4. The artist is very sweet and so great to work with.
Go. Now. Buy!!

(and check out her blog, too.)


  1. GRAZIE! I am simply speachless !
