Want a special treat for yourself or someone dear? Here is a wonderful and generous giveaway from Happy Cloud Moments in time for Christmas. Joyce, who is Hong Kong born but now lives in Maryland, is offering a $50 gift certificate from either one of her Etsy stores! Now how cool is that? You can choose from her lovely finished jewelry designs from her Happy Cloud Moments : Sparkles for All Your Happy Moments store and/or unique items from her supply store.

I've been following Joyce's blog for quite a while. Her jewelry photography adventures are inspiring. She also lists eating as one of her past-times and often posts pictures of food from her favorite restaurants. I'd like to know how she manages to stay so slim! Me, I am almost certain I gain a pound for each food post I drool over. But make no mistake, Joyce is also a beadaholic!

Her Swarovski crystal bow necklace duo and earrings are so pretty!

She also makes jewelry for men. Not only that, she makes the extra effort to take the kind of pictures to do the pieces justice - like the tattoed male model here sporting a stainless steel dragon pendant on a simple cord :

Joyce in her other life is a software engineer and naturally loves her gadgets. Not surprisingly she offers several cute charms for phones, iPods, hand held game modules and zipper pulls. This panda charm made me smile!

She also works very hard at her jewelry business. Her supply store is new. But she already has a number of really lovely pendants and charms. Her Hoots for Owls foil glass pendants shown above are just gorgeous. Her latest blog post shows her sense of fun and creative streak. She was taking pictures of her cute porcelain dog charms when she had an idea. With the help of Photoshop Elements, she created a hilarious comic strip Etsy listing. The dog fight is probably an Etsy first!

I also like her colorful apple rhinestone charms :

The handbag charms are also adorable :

This is just a selection. Do check out her stores and make sure you leave a comment for a chance to win this fabulous giveaway. The giveaway will close on Monday December 14 at 6 pm EST.I will pick a winner using random.org and post the results asap.This time, the winner has one week to claim the giveaway. If not, I shall redraw.

UPDATE : For extra entries, follow Joyce's blog, fan her Facebook pages or be a twitter follower (but make sure you tell me so in your comments ):
She is also offering a 10% discount (a refund of 10% via paypal) of any order if you mention PearlBG in the message to seller. Thanks for the super incentive, Joyce!

Good luck!
