weeklygiveaway: necklace by MollyThePirate

last week's winner:
#73, laney.
congrats! please email me.


Molly sent me a beautiful necklace for review a few months ago and — may I just say — it is 150% fantastic. Every time I wear it I get lots of compliments! You can see it in this video. Well, Molly also offered to sponsor this week's giveaway... eep! Enter away, lovelies.
PS: Want to find out what goes on behind the scenes? Here's a post showing how she makes the beauty.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Tell us a little bit about yourself. 
Hello! My name is Molly and I'm not a real pirate. But I was called Molly the Pirate by my college roommates and the name stuck around as a joke (no nefarious activities were involved in the creating of this nickname). Plus I like shiny bits of jewelry, the worn wood of a ship's deck and hats with feathers so it works for me! 
I live in the country with a dog and two kitties and I drive an old pickup truck I named George. I read tons of books, sip a lot of tea, and plant flowers everywhere while pretending to lead a life of vintage glamor.

What do you most enjoy creating? 
Earrings! My shop is mostly earrings because that's my favorite thing to make. I think because I'm so addicted to wearing them myself. I have no less than 4 boxes and bowls around my bedroom for them.

What inspires you?
My garden inspires a lot of what I make and so do the books I read. I'm usually reading in the garden so I guess that makes sense! I grew up in a gardening family so plants are a big part of my life and then I was an English major so literature is also a big part of who I am.
