Stay Simple and Classy This Holiday Season with Jewelry from Paz Happy Creations! Review and Giveaway! US 12/5

I can't ever remember a time when I didn't love jewelry. Ever since I was a kid I've poured over the For Her section of store brochures and dreamed of owning some of the lovely pieces from within. I never cared much for the more expensive pieces I saw advertised and hardly gave anything Gold the time of day..no, I loved the simple things. Silver pendants on long chains, Swarovski Crystals in place of diamonds, birthstone Jewelry instead of overly populated gemstone pieces. Even now, in my adult years, my tastes still linger on such things. The simpler the piece the happier I am.

When I was given the opportunity to work with Paz Happy Creations to include some of their gorgeous, yet beautifully simplistic, designs I was over the moon. There wasn't a gaudy, or overly done piece in the entire place!

Check out what Erin, the talent behind Paz Happy Creations, has to say about the inspiration behind her work, the Paz Happy philosophy and what she does when she's not hard at work crafting new pieces to offer in her shop!

"My name is Erin and I love to create. I make handcrafted jewelry, handblown glass paperweights and original art from my own insanely happy, deeply nostalgic, manically creative mind. This world is a beautiful, moldable paradise. Choose your medium and never stop creating your magic and inviting others into your unique, special world. The Paz Happy philosophy is all about self empowerment and inner creativity. 

Paz Happy Creations is a place for me to sell my handcrafted jewelry, glass, and original art. Every item listed in my Etsy shop is like a physical manifestation of who I am, and I am very grateful to have a mode to share that with you. Please browse my creations taking note that I put great care and love into each and every piece that I make. I am a one woman show and I happily spend my time working on my special creations. 

When I am not creating jewelry or glass, I am usually dancing/performing and teaching dance. I recently graduated from a liberal arts college where I studied dance and psychology and my love for movement and human energy strongly influences my approach to crafting and creating tangible products." 

When I was offered the chance to review a Light Blue Larimar Quartz Copper Boho Ring and Silver Plated Turquoise Hamsa Necklace for the For Her section of our Holiday Gift Guide I was thrilled. Erin couldn't have picked a more fabulous duo to be featured.

Erin was able to custom size the Blue Larimar Ring for me (I inherited some pretty weird, stumpy, fingers from my Grandmothers side of the family) and the overall result was wonderful. Take a look at how lovely it is. Of course, nothing can do it justice until you see it in person but if the picture is any indication this ring is perfection in itself.

I just adore how the Copper Wire sets off the Blue Larimar! Not only does the Larimar Quartz match my eyes, that's just an added bonus, but it also gives this particular the simple and sweet look that I often look for in my jewelry. Did I mention that Erin can make this particular ring in sizes 3-15? I'll admit to it, finally, that I'm a size 12 so when I read her sizing options I was ecstatic. It's so hard to find a ring that fits properly but I'm pleased to say that I've worn this one many times and without an ounce of discomfort or worry that it would come off at any time. It's the perfect gift for her or to tuck away into a stocking for your favorite jewelry enthusiast.

If you're a fan of mindful goodies then the Turquoise Hamsa necklace is definitely for you. 

Again, I just adore the simplicity of another Paz Happy piece. The Chinese Turquoise really sets off the silver, as you can tell from my picture. As an added bonus it even matches my ring. The chain measures 20-22 inches and is adjustable to your taste. It hangs just above the bust line and makes for the perfect addition to any outfit. You can't go wrong with a charm that reminds you that your spirit is safe and loved. It really is another perfect piece for our For Her section of the Holiday Gift Guide!
