There are a few things to celebrate in order:

1. I reached 50 etsy sales! Sometimes I think about how slow this little business goes, but then I remind myself that I've been at this less than a year. 50 sales is a big deal.

2. My birthday! (I think birthdays should be special and celebrated and the best days ever).

In celebration, I present you with the Thursday Earrings, made of sterling and turquoise:

They are a little rough around the edges, a little worn, just the way I like my jewelry.


1. Comment here to enter!

Yes, that's it.

Here are some chances for extra entries:
2. Facebook about this post and contest!
3. Blog about this post and contest!
4. Give me a music suggestion. This could be a song or a band or a person - anything that you've been listening to and think more people should hear!
5. Visit my etsy shop and let me know what your favorite piece is - past or present.

And remember to let me know in the comments if you've done any extras, else I will not know!

Give away ends on Monday, November 16th. I will draw a winner on the 17th.

Please, DON'T BE SHY! Even if you've never commented before, I encourage anyone and everyone to enter :)

Rachel Collins said...

Happy Birthday! Some day I'll have enough extra money to have you design me a big ass ring =] Haha, maybe someday Andy will get a clue! Anyway, your work is awesome and I'm glad I've been exposed to it.

Amandalynn said...

Happy Birthday! I found your blog through Rachel's facebook and think your work is lovely!

Nice blog too!
I think I'll head over to facebook and post about you there myself!

Hi Jessi---
Ok, you've convinced me to enter your give away. I really need to try to wear more jewelry and those earrings look subdued enough (yet real cool at the same time) for me to start with : ) Glad your business is getting going for ya!! said...

Hi! So glad to run across your beautiful work! I got your info from Rachel's FB post :)

Here's my favorite soul soothing song as of late; Alexi Murdoch - Breathe. It's gorgeous!

loribbopper said...

ok---this is my suggestion for your music listening pleasure. This Saturday the Rochester Symphony Orchestra is doing their first concert of the 09/10 season, Ode to Joy, celebrating Beethoven's Ninth. Chocolate will be available beforehand : )

loribbopper said...

Ok again----I just posted your give away on my Facebook profile!! Hope that you get more business as a result but that I win the earrings : ) Lori Bode said...

oh also.. I'd love to talk with you about some custom work. I'd like new rings for myself and husband.

Just sent your blog to my friends who will love your stuff as well - wahoooo

jessi sawyer said...

Wow everyone - thank you so much!

You can send an email to for any questions and discussing custom orders!


loribbopper said...

Hi again Jess-
Here's yet another entry for my desparate attempt to win your earrings : ) It took me a while to find the piece that I like the most but I found it. Of course it was one that was sold right away because everyone loved it which makes me feel more confident about my fashion choices.
It didn't have a fancy name but was listed as rhodochrosite & sterling necklace. Loved it. Your jewelry is very nice overall. Lori Bode

Monica said...

Happy Birthday! Your work is beautiful and 55 sales is fabulous!

I love the Spring Ring!

2. I was in love with the wishbone pendant you made a while back but then somebody else got it. Jerks. I also really enjoyed the copper medallion, and the Night Swimming ring.
