I'm Back and It's A KG Salvataggio Giveaway!

My trip was great fun and I came home a bit jealous of all of you junkers in Oregon.  You've got an abundance of wonderful places to shop.  It was a treat to see the booths of Kathleen of Faded Charm and Bella, B is for Bella at the Monticello Antique Mall.  I posted a few pics on my FB page last week - check it out!

The reason for my visit to Portland was to visit my niece, Kirsten.  (Here she is at Rejuvination where we found a sofa that was a great match for her boots!)  Kirsten and her husband recently moved to Oregon from California and she's having a blast exploring the shops.  We barely scratched the surface in the few days that I was there.

Kirsten is an artist and a personal trainer.  She loves God, her husband, her three dogs, her handsome  Freesian, and creating beautiful art from bits and pieces.  She recently opened an etsy shop, KGSalvataggio,showcasing some of her jewelry.  To introduce the shop, she is giving away one of her necklaces. Her pieces have a Western/Boho/Gypsy/Industrial vibe that I love.

 Her profile says it better than I can:
"All of my creations are designed and executed solely by me using quality materials combined in unexpected ways. I use a wide variety of materials which may include the following: hardware, recycled items, (leather, vintage chains, salvaged industrial items, antique beads and buttons), Swarovski Crystals, wire, metal, and other interesting findings."
I love her tag line:
"My art is inspired by God's Creation and man's junk."
Check out the cross - cut from an industrial serial plate and adorned with crystals.  Photos can never do justice to the quality and intricacy of these pieces.
No two necklaces are ever exactly alike.  I was wearing one of the Dodo birds yesterday.  When I got off the plane the flight attendant said she'd been admiring my necklace the entire flight and had to know where I got it.
