My Vacation

click to enlarge

I am going to Paris for 3 days. From there I am going to Romania (Cluj- in Transylvania) to spend Easter with my 88 old Mom and my sister.
I haven't had a real vacation in years and I hope I will enjoy this one. Paris is my dream city and it's been about 15 years since I last visited it.

Also I am happy to go back to the city where I studied, in Romania. It is a beautiful city with a medieval "aroma", with an old and prestigious University

and a gorgeous Opera House:

Last but not least I will spend an entire week with my Mom, this will make us both very happy.

March Newsletter

Greetings from Enchanted Beads!

The present Newsletter will be a short one, since I am busy getting ready for my vacation (March 25-April 6). I am going to Paris for 3 days and then to Romania in order to spend Easter with my mother. My two Etsy Shops will stay open and all orders
placed at that time will be processed on April 7 and 8 in the order they were received.

Today I would like to show you my new line of bridal jewelry. I made these pieces with the upcoming wedding season in mind and I hope a few others will follow.

The "Snow White is Getting Married" Necklace


is participating in the ongoing Etsy Beadweavers Challenge, it is #7. You can visit the EBW Blog if you would like to vote for your favorite:


Here are the matching earrings:


I also made a ring but the Swarovski Rivoli stone is a little different.


There is also a brooch I would like to show you, a possible piece for bride's maids.

From my Enchanted Bitz Shop I would like to show you this necklace:


Thank you for taking the time to read my NEWS. I appreciate your support!
Wishing you a Happy Easter/ Happy Passover/ HAPPY SPRING!
