This is one of those wonderful stories that happen through Etsy... where in my first year I have met such wonderful people, amazing artists and lovely friends! My friend Jana from Finland belongs to all of these three groups! She is such a warm and lovely person, a talented jewelry artist and a sweet friend! And she is really generous! Well, I came across her blog recently, and this made me get to know her beautiful work better. I decided to follow her lovely blog and I fell in love with her amazing creations! What happened was that by chance I was Jana's #100 blog follower... She was so sweet to contact me - a total stranger at that time - and ask me if I would accept a gift she would create especially for me! Such a sweet, wonderful surprise!!!!! I was really touched by her warm offer, and after that I discovered a sweet, warmhearted girl whose beautiful inner world reflects in her passionate creations.
My special surprise gift has now arrived... so lovingly and beautifully packaged! And when I opened it... OMG... I saw the most wonderful, amazing hairpins I've seen in my life!!!!!!!!!!! They are just too beautiful to be true!!!!! I can really see how lovingly Jana works, even the backside is so beautiful! And the color... I LOVE LOVE LOVE turquoise!!!
