Shhhh! Secret Santa.....................

LOL Secrets already out!
Not too long ago a bunch of us at HandMadeArtists forum got together for a Secret Santa thing!  I admit I was a little leery about doing this, as I had participated in something similar a few years ago, and well I was pretty disappointed with my "gift".  but, we have some great creators on AF, so I wasn't too concerned!
Normally I check my mail once a week, maybe twice a week if I'm expecting something!  I knew people were mailing things out, so I tried really hard to check my mail box more frequently.

Friday night just about 9:00 I was fixing myself something to eat, and I thought Oh shoot, I'd better get over to the mail box before the door gets locked up. I live in a fairly large apartment complex and the door to the main building gets locked up every night!  So, I put my slippers & a coat on and headed off to  the mail box.   I opened the box and there before my eyes was a brown paper wrapped box ( love my mail man!)
On the way back to my apartment I looked at who it was from, and then got really excited!
I managed to contain myself and grabbed my dinner and sat down to unwrap my present.  What a present it was!
First, is this pretty shiny red box
(I have a thing about boxes!)

lifting the lid I found this great card with a note printed to the side (note part is cropped out)
and a lovely purple fine net bow just under the card,

lifting those out, I found a neat blue tin (my thing for boxes - well double that for tins!)

and inside the tin was this incredibly awesome bracelet made just for me!
Be sure to click on the images for a better view!

I have to tell you, this is no light weight bracelet!  It weighs almost 2oz!  I had just bought a digital scale on Friday - so I had to play with it weighing things! And it's well made too!  So, you are wondering who did I receive this beauty from? I received this delightful bracelet  from Lisa of Uniqlets on HandMadeArtists

Part of the fun in this, was we were to post a picture of what we received in a thread on the forum.  I did it pretty much the way I did here - except for telling people who it was from - and had them guess!  It didn't take long for someone to guess.  Lisa has such a unique style, just like all of her creations, they are unique!  Each piece of jewelry she makes is a one of a kind creation.
I  went to her shop just before writing this and fell in love with this beautiful Victorian Elegance Reworked Vintage Necklace 

and check out this amazing Cuckoo Vintage Steampunk Necklace , now seriously can you say you've ever seen a Cuckoo clock necklace?  Well, maybe, but I doubt it was as unique as this one! 

If you are looking for some special jewelry for that someone special in your life, I highly recommend you pay a visit to Lisa's boutique Uniqlet's on HandMadeArtists Shop.  Be sure to check out all of her pages - everything is different on each and every page!
I'm so glad  you came by, be sure to leave a comment!  Comments are moderated (sorry) so you will not see your comment right away - but I will get to them as soon as I can!
Have a great day!
and now i'm going to put up my Christmas tree - really early for me!

Thank you so much for the lovely post. By the way, the bow started out on the tin, it must have shifted in transit. I can't think of much that is more fun than having someone like a gift you have given to her.

I kind of thought the bow may have shifted from the tin. Lisa, I'm glad you are enjoying this too! I really like the bracelet A LOT - and I can tell you really did it as an interpretation of a listhianthus, and that makes it so special! Thank you so much!
