I’m Colorful Because … Jewelry Contest

May 8, 2012

Helloooo!

SOMEBODY has been neglecting their blog. Apologies… building a Killer Social Media and Jewelry Empire (delicately coughs) has taken my attention away but I’m BACK and kicking off with another fun Pinterest Jewelry contest. Here are the rules:

As you may know, I love designing colorful jewelry for colorful women all over the world. 

1. Go to my Pinterest Jewelry Page,

2. FOLLOW all of my boards by clicking “FOLLOW” next to my avatar. (Please follow all boards not just the jewelry board. This can be done by clicking FOLLOW next to my avatar)

3. Go to my “Jewelry” board and WRITE “I’m colorful because …” and answer after the dot dot dot in the comment section of any piece of jewelry there. Tell me what makes you… YOU. Have fun with it. : )

4. REPIN that piece to one of your own boards.

So FOLLOW, WRITE. REPIN.

The most Colorful Answer wins a $75 Gift Certificate to Sueanne Shirzay Jewelry.You may enter as many times as you like but there must be one repin for every entry.

The winner will be announced Friday at 5:00 EST, Here and on Pinterest, just in time to give it as a gift to yourself, a friend or your Mom for Mother’s Day if you are so inclined.  But don’t worry, you do not need to be a Mom or even a GIRL to enter, this is just for fun.

What’s that you say? You do not have a Pinterest account?

GOOD LUCK PINNERS!!

Ashes to Ashes, Bust about to Bust: Oscar Fashion.

February 27, 2012

It’s official.

I love watching the Oscars Red Carpet more than the actual broadcast.

This year I chose to watch the E! Network coverage from the comfort of my beachside East Coast couch complete with pink champagne and for some reason, hummus. Hey, that’s just what I felt like eating. Don’t judge.

Before I was treated to the spectacular parade of gowns I was forced to endure what seemed to be an unusually long and detailed camera shot of P. Diddy being meticulously lint rolled by his valet. Did I really need to see that? No. No, I did not.

I don’t waste time talking about who was badly dressed, so let’s just skip right ahead to the good stuff. As usual, there were too many beautiful creations to list, and I don’t necessarily agree with what the experts say were the best gowns. I like different, unique, unpredictable. Most importantly, I like to pick the gowns that really seem to suit the person wearing them, fit well and are gorgeous.

Missi Pyle in Valentina Delfino

“The Artist” star Missi Pyle made her delicious green literally and figuratively eco-friendly fashion mark in the official Red Carpet Green contest-winning dress. It was designed by Valentina Delfino, and was made of recycled polyester and silk from cruelty-free silkworms. She’s 5’11” barefoot, but this dress suits her so well you would never really know it from viewing pictures.(Jason Merritt, Getty Images)

Judy Greer

Judy Greer’s insanely gorgeous liquid metal Monique Lhuillier gown also suited her perfectly. What redhead wouldn’t look super sexy in this slinky curvy silhouette, complete with art deco diamonds and a metallic clutch. I’m just a sucker for Art Deco and that less is more look. (Harper’s Bazaar, Brasil)

Oh. About the “bust about to bust”. Can someone please explain to me why a mega-star like Jennifer Lopez was unable to find a dress that wasn’t a nip-slip waiting to happen. Some are saying it did. For heaven’s sake, USE THE TAPE. Dress tape. Use more of it, use it correctly, or hey… here’s an idea, just get a dress that fits. I throw up my hands on this one.

Stacy Kiebler in Marchesa

Last but not least, George Clooney’s main squeeze, Stacy Keibler looked absolutely spectacular in a shimmery, flatteringly form-fitting, draped, off-the-shoulder Marchesa gown. Standing ovation, Miss Kiebler! That was my favorite gown of the night. (Steve Granitz, WireImage / Getty Images)

Shall I digress and talk about Sacha Baron Cohen’s ash throwing shenanigans? I think my tweet sums it up just fine. Ryan Seacrest certainly held his composure. I would have thrown that urn and Mr. Cohen into the closest third world country I could find.

Who was your favorite? What did you think of the drama that unfolded before the show?

I knew it was love when… Jewelry Contest

February 12, 2012

*It's love* necklace

Hello Luvahs!

I thought it would be fun fun fun for all to have a jewelry giveaway using my new and sparkly Pinterest boards as a backdrop. Pinterest is sort of a very cool virtual pinboard that you can share with the masses.

Here’s what I’m gonna do.

1. First click on this to follow my boards on Pinterest. To do that you click the big red follow button under my profile picture.

2. Then go to my Jewelry pinboard.

3. Leave your answer to ” I knew it was love when…” in the comment section of any piece of jewelry on the board. It can be romantic, funny, creative… and you can answer it as many times as you like on as many pieces you want. You can talk about love for a person, thing, idea.. be creative.

4. IMPORTANT Then re-pin the piece (s) to one of your OWN pin boards. That’s right, I am outing all of the romantic people. : )I will be able to see all of this LOVE LOVE LOVELY activity on my activity report thingy and I’m hoping everybody will have a great time doing it. Maybe even be inspired. Maybe even fall in love. LOL. Feel free to comment on other people’s comments. This could potentially be hilarious, just think about it…

THE WINNER WOOOO HOOOO! will get a Gift Certificate to use on anything in my store for $75. I’ll announce the winner Tuesday morning, on Valentine’s day, of course!!!

Please ask me any questions in the comment section here. Or you can tweet me at @sueanneshirzay on twitter. 

I look forward to reading your amazing thoughts on LOVE!

Why Chicks Dig Jewelry

November 14, 2011

This one is for all of you boys and girls who just don’t get it. And for those who DO, but just haven’t found the words.

It’s also a shameless plug for my two shops, Sueanne Shirzay Jewelry and What We Did 4 Love. : ) Ladies, you know what to do. Tape this post to the TV remote. His forehead… iPad… Refrigerator? If you need help shopping, email me at sueanneshirzay3@gmail.com or call. 516 241-5836. Clicking on the photos will also get you to the sites.

Top 10 Reasons Chicks Dig Jewelry:

1. It always fits. It doesn’t shrink and mock you from the closet like your skinny jeans that you can’t wear anymore do.

2. It makes us feel even more gorgeous than we know we already are

That’s HOT earrings from SSJ

3. It’s sparkly

4. It defines our style

6. It brings out our best features .

7. It sometimes makes clanky noises so you know we’re approaching… thus giving men ample time to hide their porn.

8. It comes in pretty pretty rainbow colors. Ahhh rainbows.

This Crush ain’t goin’ away earrings in SSJ

9. It feels good on our skin. But it usually looks a little better than a green seaweed masque.

10. It symbolizes love if given as a gift. Or guilt. We don’t care.

Just buy us the dang  jewelry.

I hope this clears up the mystery… of Why Chicks Dig Jewelry.

What We Did 4 Love

July 28, 2011

Hi there! It’s 7/28, my birthday, and although I’ll be celebrating well into a week, hey, maybe even a month—there is a gift I am giving myself and that is…  *What We Did 4 Love*.  This new wing of Sueanne Shirzay Jewelry is something I have been wanting to do for years and currently features myself and jewelry artists Tina Tang and Beth Lerner. More will be joining. My goal is to have other types of handmade goods on the site other than jewelry.

10% of sales will go to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, whom I have worked with for the past year on other philanthropic jewelry projects. They are an amazing group of people who save lives every single day.

If you are an interested artist, please contact me at sueanneshirzay3@gmail.com and thank you so much for your support as always. Please follow @WhatWe Did4Love on Twitter if you wish.
