Here is a description of the amazing scents she is currently offering:

  • Sandalwood Rose – A delightful mellow sandalwood with delicate nuances of rose. Top notes of jasmine greet a rich mellow sandalwood and delicate rose at the heart of the fragrance.
  • Brown Sugar & Fig – The core of this fragrance is fig, muguet and coconut entwined with delicious maple sugar. Amber bottom notes make this a warm, sensual fragrance.
  • Lemongrass – A fresh, energetic and perfectly balanced scent.
  • Moonlight Gardenia – A feminine floral scent combined with a headiness of gardenia.
  • Fresh Lilac – A crisp fresh fragrance with top notes of Violet Leaves and Mandarin, leading into lilac and iris and finished with a subtle sandalwood and musk.
  • Patchouli Rose- A spicy, cedarwood earthy scent combined with the wonderful scent of delicate roses.

I can assure you, all of them are heavenly! My favorites were Lemongrass (so lively and upbeat!), Brown Sugar & Fig (warm and juicy) and Fresh Lilac (my favorite flower!). Don’t want to take my word for it? That’s ok, you can get your own Solid Perfume Samples and smell each one for yourself!

Making Old Jewelry New- Experiment #2

Lately, I’ve been rummaging through my jewelry box in search of pieces that aren’t being used enough or could be used in a more current way.  In my first experiment, I successfully converted an old pendant and spare earring into a new, cross pendant.  Since that turned out well, I was ready to move on to a new challenge. 

Sometime back in 2003 or 2004, I received this necklace as a gift:

Choker styles were really hot then, but even when it was on trend, this didn’t really work for me.  I found it created an unappealingly choppy look with most of my necklines, and- with five choker length strands of gemstones -it wasn’t particularly comfortable. 

Despite those issues, I always loved the interesting mix of pearls, citrine, and moonstone and wished I could wear it more often.  It was a perfect candidate for a jewelry experiment!  Voila:  

I had all of the stones restrung into one length, which I can wear doubled or tripled (or even quadrupled if I’m hankering for that choker effect).  Single Stone handled the transformation for me, and I’m thrilled with the job they did.  We utilized the necklace’s existing clasp, so restringing was the only cost.  In its current incarnation, it’s a much more versatile, up-to-date necklace, and I’m sure I’ll wear it all the time!

Hmmm…. Now what else can I update?

Murano Glass Jewelry Giveaway *CLOSED*

Congratulations to Tina B. for winning this giveaway!

Thank you to everyone who entered and a big thanks to our friends at Murano Glass for sponsoring this fabulous giveaway!



Few things brighten my day as much as a gorgeous piece of jewelry. Just like a great hair day, it can totally change your outlook on fashion and style… and it can turn a tough morning into an amazing day! That’s why I was so excited when Marina at Murano Glass Gifts contacted us for a review.

Murano Glass Necklace on The Fashionable Housewife

Cassandra Gold Necklace

I was able to try the Gold Cassandra Murano Glass Necklace… and I have to say that the quality, clarity and heft of the piece left me impressed. It fell perfectly at my neck and was a glamorous, yet understated accent to my favorite LBD. I’ve worn it twice since receiving it – once out to dinner with the boyfriend and once to work – and got complimented like crazy on the piece.

Here’s a little background about Murano Glass Gifts:

Murano Glass Gifts Co. specializes in the import of hand made blown venetian art glass pieces, including murano glass jewelry (necklaces and pendants) and tableware such as murano glass vase and murano glass fish. We also specialize in and the extravagant murano glass chandelier. Each individual piece is hand crafted or blown by our master artisans working from personal studios on the island of Murano in Venice, Italy. We work directly with the artist ensuring the lowest prices and highest quality for the consumer.

These pieces mold art with functionality and serve as an ideal gift for others or even for yourself. Keep in mind, as each piece is unique and made to order, each will (while preserving the general look of a particular piece) vary slightly from the others – this is part of the Murano glass allure and mystique. Glass from Venezia is considered by many to be the best in the world, exhibiting a magnificent quality unlike any other in the world. Our goal is to share this very beauty with you, our customers.

The necklace is definitely a great addition to the collection of any jewelry lover, and would be an ideal piece for someone looking for a statement necklace that doesn’t overwhelm them. It’s certainly something that will get noticed for all the right reasons.

The best part? The company has graciously offered one of our fabulous readers to have the chance to get their very own Murano Glass Jewelry piece!
