Etsy Giveaway – A Set of Glass Pearl Wrapped Bracelets from Designs by Yo

Here’s a wonderful bio from Designs by Yo:  “I have always loved the creation process. Nothing pleases me more than starting with a pile of raw materials and transforming it into something beautiful. Showcasing my creativity began several years ago while designing costumes for community theater productions. I first began beading in earnest after designing the necklace Eliza wore to the ball in My Fair Lady, and I haven’t looked back. I am new to the Etsy community, and am looking forward to sharing my work, and hope to add some exciting pieces to your signature look. I love to create new pieces, so if you see something you like, but would like it better in another colour or style, I’d be happy to design a custom piece.”
