Amongst gifts I have received this holiday season was one I got trough a Secret Santa exchange. This exchange was organized by the Russian Artists team on Etsy.com which I belong to. The team has a lot of Russian-speaking members scattered all over the world and the Secret Santa exchange chain was composed randomly from over 50 members. Most of them I have never met in person, but by chance I got to both send a present to and receive a present from someone I knew personally.
My present came from Yana whom I met on my summer trip to California. Yana's Etsy shop is called WineCountryLife and she sells jewelry, bookmarks and greeting cards there. My gift was a set of jasper necklace and earrings that came in two beautiful gift boxes accompanied with a beautiful handmade card. I liked it a lot, the drippy necklace, the wonderful color of jasper, and the card - all of it was perfect. Thanks, Yana :)
