Happy Bastille Day, a Mid-Summer's Night Special and a Giveaway




Storming back to work today my lovelies but I feel light today. Joyeux Quatorze Juillet and a sweet summer for all! I thought I'd run a little mid-summer's night Bonbon Oiseau special:
How about 25% off any of our Bonbons which relate to the sea: anything with the color blue or turquoise or sea green or maybe a piece with one of our salty-dog charms: sand-dollars, an anchor, a seahorse, a crab or a whale and there's a few more--you just have to look!
We'll run the sale from today right up until I leave for my Pacific NW adventure on July 25th so what will you pick?
(Please write "Bonbon Blog Special" in your subject line!)

And since I'm feeling so Summery and to celebrate all of the amazing people out there who have been so supportive of my work and my blog, if you leave a comment on this post by midnight, Friday, July 19th, I'll pick one lovely person to win this: the lure necklace: a beautiful piece of antique reverse-painted glass circa 1930-something with a little painting of a fishing lure set in an apple green enameled setting circa 1940-something on a hand-wrought silver chain, handmade by yours truly and our awesome little bonbon staff.
The drawing will be random and the winner will be announced Saturday morning!
psst..pass it on...

oh and...the Fall Collection goes up Friday.

I'll take a necklace by that name any day, whatever definition may have been intended.
lure - 1: an object usually of leather or feathers attached to a long cord and used by a falconer to recall a hawk
2 a: an inducement to pleasure or gain : enticement b: appeal, attraction
3: a decoy for attracting animals to capture

Ohh, lovely. In particular really like the sand dollar necklace. I love the circles on the chain of "the lure".

Tartelette said...

Happy Bastille Day to you and thank you for wishing me a good one! I love your jewelry..if I could I buy one piece for everyday of the week, so I'll just have to close my eyes and wish real hard :)

Bonbon Oiseau said...

Jacqueline said...

Bliss...what a treat!

JVB said...

It is just killing me, waiting for Friday, that necklace with the Pheasant on it will go perfectly with a vintage skirt I have, I want it, I want it, I want it---

At my work, we've been designing necklaces using antique Navajo buttons as dangling pendants, 5 per necklace. There is a lovely one like a sand dollar, I could try to rustle up a photo if you'd like.

Your blog and website are delightful. Thanks!

Vera said...

Your jewelry is lovely, very elegant and tasteful. You are very talented, may I say.

High Desert Diva said...

I'm so glad you stopped by my blog today. I love what I've seen of yours.

And you're coming to the Pacific NW! Yay! Lake Quinalt...the whole area up there actually, is breathtakingly lovely. We stayed at Graves Creek Campground (close to the lodge) a few years ago. One of the most beautiful spots I've ever seen.

Give me a shout if you want any specifics...I'll be glad to pass on what I know.

Kelly said...

I bought a close friend the amazingly beautiful lock anchor necklace. You guys keep getting better and better!

editor(s) said...

bonbon perfection as usual!

S said...

I heart your work -- this item is especially lovely. It looks like the necklace incarnation of a balmy tropical vacation with a bit of deep sea fishing trip. If I stare at it long enough, maybe I'll transport myself away from this cubicle.

I grew up with the last name "herring" so my sister, mom and I always have these fish stories....We've had a retail store, robin's egg blue, for 23 years and the 18th is out very last day...It's bittersweet. While I am excited about the future, new projects, and making some dreams a reality..We are also mourning the loss of what we've known for so long. Not many people have the opportunity to work with family and while I treasure our time together, I couldn't think of a better gift to commemorate our journey as Herring girls living our dream.

ainsleyf said...

Your blogs are fantastic! I was randomly looking through the photographs on Your Destinity is Stone Golden and ended up looking at your jewelery...and I was an instant fan! I am saving up for anything and everything that you've posted!

Ann said...

I always seem to comment on your food-related posts, but this seems like a good place to tell you that I think your jewelry is fabulous. :-)

AliH said...

My friend shared with me the link to your blog and now I'm hooked! Your jewelry is exquisite!

Stephanie said...

I LOVE your jewelry. I purchased a bracelet for my sister that she wears everyday. Everything is so unique and meticulously crafted. This necklace is fabulous - would be so great to win it!!!

Bonbon Oiseau said...

Sure JVB! Would love to see that example!

Thanks everyone for your nice comments!

susan said...
