Welcome to the Fall Business Women Online Expo!

I'm excited to be a part of the 1st Annual Fall Business Women Online Expo this weekend where we're showcasing our businesses with shameless self-promotion, learning about each other (networking) and having fun with contests, give-a-ways (or whatever we want) to entice folks to stop on by and check us out! What fun!

For starters, let's get down to the good stuff: the GIVE-A-WAYS I'm having!

1. Be one of the first 3 folks to leave a comment at the bottom of this post telling us what you like most about our blog and/or website (www.MiShelDesigns.com) along with your name and email (so I can privately get your mailing info) and you will win a pair of our "Herringbone Weave Pearl Drop Earrings".

2. The first 3 people to become our friend/fan on our MiShel Designs fanpage on Facebook on Saturday, September 26th, will win a pair of our 14K GF Faceted Lemon Quartz Drop Earrings. Log onto facebook and go to our MiShelDesigns.com page, became a fan and then send us a private message with your email so I can get your mailing info to send you your pretty pair of earrings!
Okay - is that easy or what?!!

Now, for our juicy detials. And, since most of you are surfing the net w/little time to spare - we'll keep this short (no pun towards myself taken!!) and sweet.

The "We" behind MiShel Designs is me, myslef and I - with lots of love, support (and purchases) from my family, friends and return customers! I'm Michelle Buettner and I love to laugh, have a quirky sense of humor, twirl my hair constantly (when I don't have jewlery tools in my hands!), would stop breathing if I couldn't create jewelry and I consider myself one of the luckiest people on the planet! I hold a Graduate Pearls Diploma from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and I love to drool over pearls, gemstones and all things jewelry. My jewelry, even though somewhat trendy, tends to be classic in design and taste and can be worn season after season.
Okay - there you have it. Have fun checking out all the fabulous designers who are participating in the 1st Annual Fall Business Women Online Expo - and please, please share their info w/your friends. We all love handmade items and it feels great supporting those who are passionate enough to put their creativity out in the world for everyone to enjoy!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Pearls Baby!!
