Happy Cyber Monday! Last week, I enjoyed no less than three fabulous Thankgiving dinners in two cities with countless friends and family members that I love. I promised you a post on my Black Friday finds-- but I have a confession: I didn't buy anything. Therefore, I have nothing to show you.
I did enjoy the gorgeous fall weather in Downtown Franklin, Tennessee poking in and out of charming boutiques with friends, Jenna and Christina. Actually purchasing something, however, would have required me to stand in long lines amid masses of people. Not my thing. As much as I typically love shopping at malls, boutiques, and outlets, this time of year I prefer shopping from the comfort of my couch in my pjs.
In honor of Cyber Monday (and a comfortable shopping environment), I am offering my first giveaway from m.elaine beadworks.
Need a special gift for a female in you life? Your mother, sister, sister-in-law or friend? I think that you'll love the one-of-a-kind stackable bracelets from m.elaine beadworks.
m.elaine beadworks was started by two fashion forward friends of mine. Meredith and Rachel are first and foremost best friends who shared awkward teenage years together in Alabama, college trips from Athens to Knoxville and back, weddings and babies -- they’ve truly been through it all making it a natural decision to start a business together.
Meredith and Rachel are complete perfectionists (trust me, I know!) and their perfectionism shows in their bead choice. They only selecting the stones and other materials that make a rich, bold statement. I love that many of their pieces are one-of-a-kind, since they use unique, vintage charms.
What I find really appealing about m.elaine beadworks is their focus on individuality and personal style. Their bracelets can be worn as a single bracelet, but they are really designed to be worn in sets, or "stacks" as they call it. You can add to your collection and mix and match pieces for a look that is completely YOU!
Take a look at their gorgeous designs (get ready for an onslaught of photos -- I just loved so many!):
m.elaine beadworks is offering a discount to all Inviting Abode readers just in time for Christmas!

Meredith & Rachel also generously offered to giveaway the bracelet below [gunmetal chinese crystal beads with alternating silver crystal rondelles], worth $58, to a lucky Inviting Abode reader!
In their words:
We chose this bracelet because it's a great starter for a stack or an addition to any stack, and it is pretty generic (no skulls, crosses, Buddhas!). It can be dressed up or down and is just the right amount of sparkle!
