Product Review: Shawna Lane Creations
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I received an absolutely beautiful rainbow washer necklace from Shawna Lane Creations. It came well packaged to withstand tumbles in the mail. Inside the well insulated mailer lay a white jewelry box with the necklace carefully placed inside along with business cards.

After admiring the bright colors, I immediately put it on and to my delight found that it wasn’t too heavy and the 18 inch chain was neither too short nor too long. I personally do not like necklaces that are super tight.

I also really liked the swirly wire work on the top of the pendant that was used to create a bail (connection between pendant and chain). I think its very creative how she was able to take something as ordinary as a washer and turn it into a beautiful piece of jewelry! I haven’t seen anything quite like it before.

I gave this unique necklace a 5 out of 5 because I thought it was beautifully executed and because of the ease of working with Shawna Lane Creations. The only thing that I thought could be improved on was that I could see the glue on the back of the washer. Now I realize that when worn properly that the glue wouldn’t be seen, but I thought that perhaps there is a way to disguse the glue and make it less obvious.

That said, I am very happy with my experince with Shawna Lane Creations and with the very beautiful product that I received.

*Disclaimer – While I received a necklace free from Shawna Lane Creations in order to write this review, I have not been paid for my review and all opinions are my own.

Review: The Emerald City by J.A. Beard and GIVEAWAY!

The Emerald City by J.A. Beard

Review: 3.5 out of 5 stars

The Emerald City by J.A. Beard is a young adult novel about a high school girl named Gail Dorjee who is sent to a boarding school in Seattle, Washington after the tragedy of her parents untimely death. Once there strange things begin to happen forcing Gail to re-look back at her life up to that point.

J.A. Beard has taken L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz and transposed it into a loose re-imagination in a fresh and modern way. Much the way SyFy channel did with the Tin Man a couple years ago. I found that most of the original characters were easily identified in this version with other original characters thrown in.
