Congratulations!  Please email us at contact@jeanneoliverdesigns.com.




Back in February I was having dinner with a few good friends in California and I couldn’t keep my eyes off one of my friend’s necklaces! It was exquisite, interesting and a work of art.  It had been wrapped a few times around her neck to make it shorter and she quickly took it off so I could examine it. The whole piece was full of intricate attention to detail.  We were even able to wrap it around our wrists and create the most beautiful wrap bracelet.

Well, I tracked this jewelry artist down and I am excited to tell you that Eclectic Beaded Crochet Jewelry with Robin Dudley-Howes is now teaching on our creative network!

I wanted to give away one of these gorgeous necklaces/wrap bracelets to celebrate!

    I love pearls because of the way they are created by a simple grain of sand inside the oyster and the process of that little tiny sand turning into something so precious is amazing. I think I have shared about this class haha but just in case I will share again.xo

  2. carlanda Williamson commented:

    I wanted a beautiful necklace with a vintage sailboat on a bake lite buckle, that Jennifer valentine had for sale, years ago.

    I have been blessed in the past couple years to do some traveling in Bali, Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan and India, and treasure the prayer beads and necklaces from each of these places…and when I wear them I am reminded to pray for the people groups in these regions, and to know our Father will gather His people together out of ‘every nation, kindred, tribe and nation.’

    What a lovely piece! My favorite jewelry item is the wedding band set around my left ring finger….it has layers and layers of symbolism within it…the diamond solitaire was given so sweetly long ago when we were college juniors…babies, really! haha Then in our immaturity we separated for several months and did some much needed growing up and were reunited and a coordinating band was added, followed by a simple band of gold on our wedding day 25 years ago and finally completed with an anniversary band of 5 diamonds representing our family…thanks for the giveaway & my your lovely daughter is growing up so quickly!! Blessings! xo

  45. My favorite piece of jewelry is a necklace that I made myself with all of my favorite silver charms…a little lotus, a vintage virgin mary charm, a locket, a pearl that my husband gifted to me and a little rhinestone for sparkle.

  56. Julia Molewyk commented:

    My favorite piece of jewelry is a set of stacking rings I got for my 40th birthday. The stones are differing sizes and represent our family. There are birthstone for a few of us, a Jade stone for my daughter named Jade, and the biggest is a moonstone for our wedding anniversary and ny youngest son’s birth month, which is actually April, and I Iiked the white of the moonshine instead of a clear stone. I love how I got to customize the piece and the Etsy artist I bought it from was great to work with. I will have to look into taking this jewelry course to make some more meaningful jewelry for myself and to give away. Thanks for the chance to win!

  57. I love these ‘junk gems’ and I need all the pearls of wisdom I can find! Thank you for a chance to win.xx

  58. Stacey B commented:

    I currently find myself wearing a pendant of rutilated quartz that one of my workmates gifted me. She’s very generous and knew I had been looking for something similar. It has “good vibes”.

  59. My favourite piece of jewellery is my wedding ring. My husband and I both have the same design of a wolf etched into the rings. They were made by a wonderful native artist in Vancouver B.C. The wolf symbolizes loyalty, family , communication and understanding.

  60. Priyanka commented:

    I love a bird’s nest pendant that I made with silver wire n pearls.. I goes well on any outfit n I get many compliments on that.

    My favorite piece of jewelry is a handmade necklace a friend gave me after the death of my mother. It is made of elbow shaped glass tube beads and swarovski crystals.

  65. I really love a ring I inherited from my mother and grandmother that has a lovely tanzinite stone surrounded by diamonds.

  66. Shared on Facebook and Pinterest

  67. I love love love the eclectic vibe and the story this necklace tells. I have many sentimental favorites I enjoy wearing, but if I had to choose just one, it would have to be my engagement ring. My husband picked it out completely by himself and nailed it. He found a “vintage style” setting in 2000 before anyone was really thinking that way. He added sapphires on each side of the diamond BEFORE Chandler gave one exactly like it to Monica on the TV show Friends. LOL. He was ahead of the times, and we were vintage before vintage was cool! So glad to have all this company on the vintage train now though!

  76. katie commented:

    probably my ring from when my partner and i had our ceremony 15 years ago.
    we bought it at an antique show for less than 100$, but i am still so happy with it.
    i also love my necklace with my favorite cross and medallions with my children’s names on them.
    this necklace is gorgeous; i have already signed up for this course.
    thank you, katie

  77. susanssoulshines commented:

    I absolutely love the unique types of jewelry with multiple styles used together, like metal leaves, pearls, gem stones, ribbons, mixed colors & textures, etc. That way you can wear it with everything and it always looks great, casual or dressy, a new & old look combined. My perfect kind of jewelry, in fact I made some jewelry in the past, I’m a hand crafter from way back but your style is tricky to get it to look just right the way you’ve achieved it to – it looks amazing. My permanent addiction is crochet, so I’m low on cool jewelry to wear with it! 🙂
