A Cup of Sparkle is on Vacation!

It has been a crazy couple weeks full of hard work to finish all the Christmas orders. I wanted to share at least one of the custom designs of a birds nest post earrings and brooch I made for a customer, which represents 2 and 4 children in gorgeous purple colors eggs. I wish I took photos of all the custom jewelry I made. Unfortunately, time was running too fast for me to finish everything on time.

I will be traveling for holidays so; my Etsy shop, A Cup of Sparkle jewelry and accessories will be closed until I come back on January 5th. I am looking forward to sharing my new collections with you when I return. I will be shopping for lots of new and unique beads and materials during my trip.
I will be also putting lots of new craft tutorials to my blog in the new year, I promise!

I hope all of you are doing well; enjoying the Christmas music, the lighted trees and the joy of upcoming holidays. Lots of love and sparkle...

P.S. I will be traveling to France, Italy, Switzerland and Turkey. Please come back to check out some photos from all those cool places I will be visiting...

Cookie Decoration Party: Fun Christmas Activity

Christmas time has so much to offer...  This is the time of the year when families and friends gather together, which I love most about Christmas. Office parties, tree decorating with family, gift-wrapping with friends, children and neighbors, dinners with family, and many more new years organizations to get-together. Here is one of those get-together I was at yesterday: Cookie Decorations Party!

 Every year, we get together for a Cookie Decoration Party to decorate a huge variety of cookies. This is the 3rd one I have participated so far. Everyone brings a bunch of cookies and we all decorate them together. At the end of the night, everyone get to pick cookies from a big selection of decorated cookies and take them home. We have an awesome hostess who supply so many colors and shapes of sprinkles.

This is our workspace I took a shot of after we are done... It looks quite messy, isn't it? :)

And,  these are some I made ...

Have you ever gone and organized a cookie decoration party? If you have not, I should tell you that it is the most sweetest party you can imagaine!!! I highly recommend it...

Farm fresh organic eggs: New Dalmatian Collection

Birds nest with eggs
The nest on the left looks almost real, don't you agree?

A Cup of Sparkle dalmatian jewelry collection is handcrafted with speckled eggs that is definitely a wearable art inspired by nature, which are also one of my favorite gemstones among all the colorful pearls and bead eggs I use in my nest jewelry.

Let's follow the sun... A trip to Bora Bora Islands!

Now, it is December and I think it is time to travel some place warm. Let's pack up sandals, a beach towel, swimsuit, sunglassess and head to Island of Bora Bora in the Pacific Ocean... oh, don't forget to take some sunscreen!

Such a happy place with beautiful weather... Over the water bungalows are the most fulfilling, and dreamy places you can stay in.  There are so many activities you can do in this island... eating delicious seafood, snorkeling, golf or just relaxing laying in a hammock. This place is meant to be the center of the romantic universe! 
Don't you agree?
