Ginny and The Addition Shop: a give away *updated*

The Addition Shop

AND THE WINNER OF THE BAD TO THE BONE EARRINGS IS …… #37 JESSICA! CONGRATS, BABE! Your ears just got prettier, and I have a huge smile on my face. Thank you, everyone, for supporting Ginny in her art.


There is this girl, one of those glowing, joy girls whose heart seems to have plunged the depths of God’s rich shadow. She is believable and gorgeous, and she never looks a stitch like anyone else in the room. 



Ginny Moony is one of those girls. You might have seen her here or here or here or here, and I know her as the warmly confident friend with a bouquet of flowers at the farmer’s market. I always want to hold her hand and sit for a while.

Ginny has an artist’s soul and sells her work through The Addition Shop, and I want to share her art, her jewelry designs with you. 

greydropsThe necklace up there is just something I really enjoy. All her color choices and texture combinations, the earthy stones and the royal jewels and metals, are so pleasingly unusual, with such a reach-up-and-grab-it factor that when I saw her on Dickson Street the other day, I almost pulled her long and boldly layered necklace up and stuck my head in there with hers. It would have looked so good on us.

These earrings, too, are a favorite of mine. Would you like a shot at wearing them, by chance? Having them, even?

OK, I did the first two! I *love* the sunburst earrings and caramel candy bracelet. Though all of her stuff is gorgeous!

I have the blessing of knowing Ginny and her heart is as lovely as her jewelry! The other day I ran into her at a local bakery. She looked beautiful, glowing, holding her adorable daughter and told me of another little one on the way. I confessed to feeling guilty about eating a rather large chocolate pastry that morning. She smiled her brilliant smile and said, "Life is short--eat doughnuts." She does know what it means for life to be short yet she fully embraces joy (the divine and the everyday) anyway. How can you not love a girl like that?

YOU DIDN'T WARN ME I'D GET A LUMP IN MY THROAT!! The Eliot necklace? What a lovely remembrance {{sniff}}.

You and I share the same taste, clearly...I loved the earrings you highlighted, and though a few other pair tempted me, they were my favorites.

I don't stand a chance of winning though, do I?

Her work is truly gorgeous. The Eliot necklace is such a powerful and moving tribute to their sweet baby. Such glorious work - all of it. Thanks for sharing her art with us today, Amber!

i may be the only man posting on this one, but i've always been fascinated by gemstones and such. Although i don't really wear anything but a wedding ring, i do like to see it on others. I have
no problems admitting that.

And Amber,
you'll be seeing some art very soon...

    Reply August 20, 2009

    Shhh. Pretend I'm not here. Baker, you've got the prettiest wife this side of the Mississippi. She'd dig this jewelry. I'm wanting to see that art SOON.

Eliot's necklace is beautiful. If I were shopping, I'd buy the Diamond Darling earrings. Thanks for the chance to win!

I love the carmel candy bracelet. I also looked at the Eliot necklace. I have actually watched a video on YouTube about him before. Wow what a family!!

So cool!! I love the grey bracelet or the necklace featured at the top. I love that everything looks so unique! Awesome!

Reply August 21, 2009

I love Ginny's use of vintage pieces. I've recently gotten into doing more Thrifting, and the jewelry counters are my favorite part. Trouble is, I can't always imagine what to do with what I find. Gin imagines it beautifully.

I LOVE GINNY! And I love Addition Shop jewelry too! It's the best!! I visited her site so I could pick out my favorite thing on there right now, but I seriously love it all!! And I don't normally love jewelry! Ginny always makes me feel like I can pull something off, even if I didn't feel like I could before I talked to her!
