Puppy's one cent auction ending tonight: angel aura quartz & moonstone sterling wire wrapped pendant!

This little treasure is a one cent auction ending this evening with free shipping! It hasn't bid up very high at all! One cent auctions (they start at one cent and people bid them up to the price they are willing to pay) are a fun way to get yourself something nice for way below market cost!

Sterling silver is sculpted around a rainbow sheen Angel Aura Quartz crystal!  A cascade of blue flash rainbow moonstone briolettes dangle from a sterling chain! A Swarovski crystal and miniature cultured pink fresh water pearls add charm! 
Angel aura quartz (also called opal aura quartz) is created when a layer of platinum is alchemized to the surface of a quartz crystal, giving it a beautiful rainbow finish and enriched metaphysical energies.
The pendant measures just over 2 inches long, from sterling bail to crystal point.  The moonstone briolettes dangle down to 2.5 inches.  The unwrapped crystal measures 34mm long by 6mm wide.  There is cyan-blue fire present in the moonstone briolettes when illuminated from the right angle! The pendant comes with a long fine black satin cord, but would also look lovely worn on a silver chain.   
My handmade original, infused with love!  You will receive the exact pendant pictured here, the only one like it.  Comes in a lavender satin gift bag with cards explaining the metaphysical properties of all the gems used.

Metaphysical Properties of Angel Aura Quartz: Also called Opal Aura Quartz. These crystals have a magical rainbow sheen to them imparted by a thin layer of platinum alchemized to the surface of quartz crystal. The finished stone has new properties, inspiring joy and angelic connection. Bestows the wearer with hope, optimism and a sense of connection to the Divine Consciousness. Purifies and energizes all chakras.

Metaphysical Properties of Moonstone: Known to many as the “stone of new beginnings”. It soothes emotional instability, stress and strong reactions to situations. It also can eliminate tunnel vision and open the mind to a variety of positive possibilities. Has a very feminine, empathetic energy.

Metaphysical Properties of Pearl:  Stone of sincerity and purity.  Allows the wearer to readily receive spiritual guidance.  Enhances wisdom and personal integrity.  Balancing and healing to all chakras.  Believed to keep a person balanced in love and relationships.

Nurture Your Inner Fairy!

Hoodwin the Guinea Pig, enjoying his carrot!

I woke this morning to discover that our Director of Security here at Puppy Love Jewelry, Hoodwin the Guinea Pig, had snuck out of his pen in the night. I heard his little footsies pitter-pattering all around under my bed. I used a fresh carrot with the top on to lure him out and promptly took some photos of him eating it as I was overwhelmed by his cuteness!

Of course, Puppy became extremely jealous and immediately demanded his own treat, which I promptly gave him-his favorite, raddichio:

Aren't they magnificent?! I am honored to care for them! :)

Do you love candy, want to go trick-or-treating but don't have kids?

Well, this problem has plagued me for years. Actually, I have never been trick-or-treating in my entire life as I had a very hard and strange childhood and then never had human children as an adult (yes, I have thought of taking the Husky or Puppy the Guinea Pig, but have never followed through!).

Well, I recently saw a video that demonstrates the perfect solution to this problem..I'm gonna do it this Halloween! So funny...enjoy!

Don't feel bad if you didn't win last month. Please keep entering! Just give us a new photo each time. Past winners are also welcome to enter!

Here's how it works: Each month, Puppy's mommy and employee will list a new crystal or gemstone creation as the give away prize. As cute pet pix are submitted, they will be added to the white voting poll widget on the right of the blog for everyone's viewing and voting pleasure! You can size up your competition and if you are really determined you can come vote every hour! The voting closes on April 30th, at 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time. Whoever has the most votes at that time wins the prize!
