  112. I got so distracted yesterday looking at the jewelry I didn't come back to enter the giveaway. You're right about the photography and story - both are so compelling. I would expect that for some jewelry that looked like it was made by my kid brother but it's okay "because it means a lot" but these are beautiful pieces!!! My favorite is the Orchard Bunch - I'll probably buy it in navy blue and hope that I win so I can get it in another color ;)
