Countdown to Christmas Giveaway Extraganza~ Day 4!

Are you ready for Christmas? We're counting down the days and hope you'll take a little break and enter our 4th Giveaway, this one is from Mello Stuff~ owned by a pair of creative sisters one of whom you should recognize~ Mel.

Mel is one of the leaders of Upcyclers, and, in fact, she's also one of our charter members. I am also proud to say that I can now call her my friend, whose encouragement and support for myself and our team has been a constant source of strength for me. Her kindness and willingness to reach out to our members and to myself is what she sometimes forgets is critical to our success, and occasionally disparages herself for being "low-tech". I have reminded her and many other members that being tech savvy is not the most important part of what we do. It is the creative upcycling process and the opportunity to bond with like-minded artists/upcyclers that is valued most in our team. That is why we are such a wonderfully diverse Etsy team~ each with our own strengths, talents and purposeful goals. And it is during the holiday season that we should take time to remember those that we love and appreciate the most~ not just by giving material gifts, but also by giving heartfelt thanks!

So THANK YOU, MEL! And thank you for generously sponsoring Day 4 of our Countdown to Christmas Giveaway Extravaganza!

Melissa and Lori {Mel ~ Lo Stuff} upcycle broken jewelry into amazing new wearable art that makes a bold and innovative fashion statement. Popular and imaginative steampunk style and altered art techniques are incorporated into their unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry. Necklaces, bracelets, rings, brooches and barefoot sandals can be found in their Etsy shop.

Such is the piece you have a chance to win now! A tiny butterfly earring that lost it's mate has found a new home among watch parts, silver chain, polymer clay, and acrylic paint assembled on an adjustable silver ring.





Mel and Lori are the perfect compliment to one another~ Mel designs and hand-assembles their jewelry using every imaginable implement, including hard to find gemstones and vintage watch parts. Lori is "quality-control central", keeping Mel organized and listing the artful, upcycled creations online in their Etsy shop. Together they have successfully developed a niche for themselves on one of the world's most popular handmade venues!
