I first heard about Ida & Mae last week when I entered a contest from Mandy on her blog, Pennies and Blessings. I entered the contest (as well as completing several of the bonus entries) and received an email yesterday from Mandy, telling me I had won these two beautiful handmade rings:
Here's a short snippet that Mandy featured on her blog about Marcy and her shop: "Marcy, the shop owner, started out working with beads – making unique rings mostly, under the business name of Beadworks by Marcy. Feeling the need to both expand and re-brand, Marcy recently relaunched her business with a new name, new feel, and new products! The names “Ida” and “Mae” hold special meaning to Marcy as they are the names of both her grandmothers. The vintage names, if you will, are a great indicator of the vintage lovelies you will find in the Ida & Mae shop!"
