PARTY QUEEN: ZOE + PIPER... jewelry with a conscience
GIVEAWAY: One person will receive our 'live the life you have imagined' pendant.
SPECIAL OFFER: Enter code: KellyRaeMay and receive 10% off your order until June 17th.
ABOUT: Zoe and Piper… jewelry with a conscience. Specializing in unique jewelry, featuring beautiful gemstones, crystals and spiritual offerings. By using a combination of sterling silver, gold and bronze, we are able to create jewelry with a message and unique beauty. We are proud to donate a portion of our proceeds to select animal sanctuaries and animal advocacy groups.
Add some cheerful light and color to any space with our gemstone crystal prism! Turquoise, amethyst and citrine are blended for a great color combination to accent the teardrop shaped prism. Faceted crystal balls or prisms split beams of light and radiate the light to all areas of the space, bringing harmony and peace into your life. Prisms are also a very popular contemporary feng shui cure. Held up to a sunny window or other light source, a multitude of tiny "rainbows" will fill the room. Each little rainbow contains all the colors of the visible spectrum, bringing both vitality and balance to the room. Beautiful!
Visit our website for a large selection of jewelry, sure to excite your appreciation for individuality.
***Use discount code KellyRaeMay and receive 10% off your order through our website or etsy shop. Good through June 17th.***
We are always adding new designs and welcome your feedback.

GUEST OF HONOR: Laurie Copps, Young Living Independent Distributor
GIVEAWAY: Two people will receive one Therapeutic grade Lavendar Essential Oil
ABOUT: Essential oils are concentrated liquids extracted from aromatic plants. When grown, harvested and distilled properly, essential oils can have a wide variety of uses and tremendous health benefits. Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations.
Please visit my website to discover how essential oils can be chemical-free replacements for items you use every day.
