Maternity Monday: Handmade Earrings Give-a-way

Good Day All! How was your weekend? Mine was a full blast! Friday, we rented movies and watched with the kids. Saturday, the kids attended a 4 year old birthday party for my children’s friend! After that, it was time for Mama to party. The hubby and I were invited to a friends 40th Surprise Birthday Bash. It was an All Black Masquerade Ball. Fun Fun & Fun! Sunday, church & 5linx. My week in the Maternity world was fine. I was just tired. Any time I could lay down, I was all for it. I worked out with Zumba at least 3 days this week. I ate healthy but did have Chick-Fil-A french fries twice. And I even had an order of Little Ceasers Cheese Bread with Mushrooms. I know! I know!

Now on to the give-a-way! I have had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Shayla. The creator of Pulling Strings ( Shayla is a new mommy and knows exactly what I am going through! She knows nothing makes a mom-to-be feel better than something cute! She hand makes all her jewelry and I just really like her pieces. She was open to doing a give-a-way for the BernettaStyle readers, so enter! You just might win. Please read about Pulling Strings below and how she started this unique business.

These are the earrings you could win!

How long have been crocheting earrings?
I have been crocheting over 20 years.  I was taught by my aunt at very young age.  I started to create crochet earrings last spring.   

What made you design crochet earrings?
I was thinking how different would that be to have earrings to specifically match my outfits. So, I researched how to design crochet earrings.  I literally began to create a pair for each outfit that was in my closet. 
What do you love most about designing?
I love mixing colors and working with different yarns.  I become inspired when I walk into a yarn store and I see aisle & aisle of yarn.  Then, I find a comfortable chair and get to work (although it doesn’t feel like work).  I admit that I often lose track of time when I am crocheting, it just that relaxing for me. 

What makes Pulling Strings’ earrings standout?
Because, I’m using thread, strings, straw, silk and yarns to design my accessories it makes for a light and carefree pair of earrings.  Secondly, Pulling Strings’ customers can customized their own pair of earrings by style and color.  Lastly, ladies appear to be in love with colors just as much as I am. They are sure to bring out any tops, dress or outfit you may have.

What is your inspiration for Pulling Strings different types of collection?
Pulling Strings main goal is to create classic accessories that can be worn in and out of different trends and seasons (i.e. Gold Hoops, Out unTeal, Sexy Black Lace & Funky Fushia). 

What can we expect for Pulling Strings New Line?
Ladies can expect Bold, Bright fibers to create a unique pair of earrings.  Pulling Strings will continue to provide stylish earring starting at $9 to $24.   

Where would you like to see Pulling Strings in 5 years?
I would like to see Pulling Strings on every ladies’ ear, J/K.  I would like to see Pulling Strings in various boutiques nationally & internationally.
