North Atlantic Art Studio Review and Giveaway(Giveaway Closed)

Etsy Feature:
 North Atlantic Art Studio
 Interview with North Atlantic Art Studio:

~Tell us a little bit about yourself~
A bit about myself...I am happily married to a wonderfully supportive husband, who loves how creative I am! I have a daughter and a son who are a year apart and keep me on my toes! Now that they are in school, I was able to take the leap and open an Etsy store...it has been a huge learning experience and I am open to all forms of advice
I am always evolving as an artist, wife, mom, friend, daughter...and I love to learn. I also have several autoimmune diseases...with the most prominent right now being Lupus (SLE), I try to not let my diseases run my life, but that is easier said than done, sometimes. I know there are many of you out there, just like me...my illnesses do shape my art...I use a lot of toggle clasps because they are easy to open and close if your fingers are stiff and swollen...I use lever backs on my earrings for the same reason..stiff and swollen fingers can't always thread long fish hooks through and ear lobe or put a backing onto a post....I love my versatile pieces that can be worn as a bracelet, or various ways as a necklace...that is the MOM in me...practical and thrifty...I LOVE when a creative piece provides options!!!
I am also an animal lover and I work with a local animal shelter, helping any way I can and I have even had the privilege of fostering pregnant animals in my home. I currently have one rescued golden retriever named Teton (Patrick and Indy, my two other rescued goldens, recently passed away)...I have seven kitties and one guinea pig and very many vet bills :) Ha Ha....Like I said, I have a wonderful and supportive husband.
 
~When and how did you become interested in making jewelry?~
I have always loved jewelry and I actually sold fine jewelry for seven years and I put myself through college that way. I became interested in making it, specifically when a bracelet of mine broke and I could not find someone to fix it...I taught myself how to fix it and voila...here I am.
~What is your favorite piece from your shop and why?~
I love my super long pearl necklaces that you can wear as a necklace (several ways) or you can wear it as a bracelet. I love versatility and options.

~5 Words to Describe you:~

 Perfectionist
Reliable
Happy
Organized
Determined  

North Atlantic Art Studio's pieces are amazing! You can definitely tell just how hard the jewelry was worked on.  It looks as if each stone, crystal, and bead were added with such love and care that they are perfect.  I'm really not just saying that either.This is the necklace I received to review.

Isn't it just darling?
I went to the store yesterday wearing it and I got soo many compliments (and even a few business card requests!). I love the fact that North Atlantic Art Studio has necklaces that are so versatile that they can be worn as bracelets too. 
  I really appreciate the Pewter toggle clasps that they add to most of their necklaces and bracelets.  
It makes everything much easier!
For instance: when you have to leave in a rush (like me most of the time!).

  113. I just spent about an hour (enjoying every moment) carefully browsing through the maqrvelous North Atlantic Art Studio on Etsy (and "hearting" about half of the exquisite designs/creations st is definitely one of ny new favorite shops!)

    Now for the hard part: Severe budget constraints help me narrow down my Wish List a little! I've narrowed it down to the Nutmeg Necklace & Earring Set, Les Printempts Necklace and Earring Set, Les Seasons Changeants Neacklace and the Coppoer Cascade Earrings!
