Karen & La Vidalerie
Hi, I'm in my 7th year of running fabulous jewellery making holidays in the beautiful Aveyron in SW France with my partner Tim. Workshops from beading to silversmithing, glass fusing to fold forming & lots more.
When I'm not doing this I make artisan silver jewellery and a wide range of handmade findings, charms and ear wires for jewellery makers, oh and manage our army of ginger cats. www.lavidalerie.com

Anyone who knows me knows I have a passion for handmade and that includes ear wires. I believe that every pair of earrings that you design deserves a special pair of ear wires that suit the design – That’s how we ended up with over 50 ear wire designs on our website 🙂
This week I’ll be giving away a pair off handmade ear wires each day – you can enter via this blog or my FB page (here) or both.
I started late so today there will be 2 giveaways so make sure you visit later today so you don’t miss is.
The 1st giveaway is for a pair of my Long & Elegants – Gorgeous handmade silver ear wires almost beautiful enough to wear on their own but here they are with a pair of fabulous beads by Lush Lampwork (not included I’m afraid)
To win a pair just…
1 – Leave a commend with what stone etc you would hang from these
2 – Share this post
Do all of that and you’ll be in the draw to win a pair – ends midnight tonight 26.7.16
http://www.lavidalerie.com/C…/Long%20Handmade%20Earwires.htm – Just £3 a pair !
Remember to check back later today for the 2nd giveaway
Each morning when I take ChooChoo for his walk I am amazed by the changes in the countryside around me.
Now it’s the time if year when nature leaves these little gifts along our walk. What are they – visit www.lavidalerie.com/Give-Aways.html (or click on the photos) for how to enter draw to win a handmade Waiting for Spring sterling silver charm.
Ends Midnight tonight (16th)
Waiting for Spring – Handmade Silver Charm
Good Luck Everybody !
PS – Find us on Instagram – I’ll be posting new jewellery, workshop photos, photos from around La Vidalerie and competitions
We’ve been so busy running workshops recently that I haven’t had chance to post so here is a quick competition and a promise that I will post again soon !
Every morning I take ChooChoo for a walk along our lane, it gives me chance to see how the seasons are changing day by day. Each day we are joined by some of our cats – have a look at the photo and count the GINGES.
And click on this link www.lavidalerie.com/Give-Aways.html to see how to enter the draw to win one of my handmade silver Blown Away Wish Charms.
