{GIVEAWAY} On a Budget: Cool Water Gems

Did you ever make art projects with your mom as a kid?  I bet those art projects never turned into a super cool profitable jewelry business.  Well, it did for the mother-daughter team of Angela and Renee over at Cool Water Gems.  My mom and I made Shrinky Dinks and those horrible potholders out of (what I only assume now were) hair ties.  Angela and Renee make gorgeous and affordable jewelry and they were nice enough to send me a bracelet, do an interview AND sponsor a little giveaway here.  So, without further ado, here's Renee and Angela.  

Q. What type of jewelry will people find in your shop?
A. You will find a collection of handmade pieces inspired by the world around us for today's fashionable woman.   Necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings are made to complement many styles including: vintage, beachy, natural, sporty, and glam.

A. We love designing and creating new pieces of jewelry and wanted to make them available for women who want to make a statement.
