12 days of Christmas Giveaway...Day Ten!

Welcome to day 10!!!!!!!!!!

Today meet Kevin and Robyn the husband and wife design team behind TheOrangeBell. How cool is that!!!





Bit about us:
WE are Kevin and Robyn. We've been married for 12 years and live in sunny California. Kevin is an MRI technician and Robyn homeschools our three kids Sydney, Owen & Reese. We love being together and we love our cat named Henry (the kids would kill me if i didn't mention him).

How'd we get started:
It was quite by accident really. Although we're both artistic and enjoy making things this kind of just happened. We were looking for a little hobby as an outlet and after LOTS of researching and lots of reading decided to buy a torch. There were no classes to take in our area so Kevin just taught himself. He was a natural from the start. Now he's an addict! So for about 3yrs now we've had this fantastic little hobby and we love making jewelry together!

Favorite materials to work with:
Glass, fire and sterling silver

Where do you sell:
theorangebell.etsy.com and out of our home to friends and family

Favorite Christmas memory:
We Love Christmas!!! Because we live in Ca. we have to drive to the mountains to find snow...and that's exactly what we've done the last 4 years. My parents (Robyn) rent a huge cabin for all their kids and grandkids to stay in for 4days! The kids look forward to it all year b/c they get to be with all their cousins (15 total). The memories we've made are priceless!



Kevin and Robyn made this gorgeous sleek bracelet just for the giveaway! Wouldn't it look fantastic paired with your favorite jeans, a white shirt and some stylish black boots?!! Love it!Thanks Kevin and Robyn!!! The winner of the Grand Prize will get to enjoy it!

OMGoodness, love it! The birds are adorable, adding to my ever growing WISH list. Do you have a rainbow? that is my other favorite - seeing rainbows are good luck..one with hearts at the end would be cute. :) This is fun. Take care!!

I've actually been thinking of a stamp necklace with rose design on it. I don't know if that's just my recent obsession with roses, but that would be uber cute :D

I would like to see more "boy" themed design stamps. Maybe a train, racecar, or dinosaur. My little boy loves all of those things and it would be fun to have him represented with one of those on a necklace.

Jennifer said...

Oh, I love them both! The gorgeous bracelet and the sweet love birds. Awww.

Jennifer said...

I'd love to see what you'd do with a whimsical necklace stamped "play".

Jennifer said...

Would also love one with the "om" symbol.

love it all

what about a ribbon stamp that could be universal for awareness ribbons. You could use a colored crystal to help represent what each ribbon stood for pink for breast cancer, yellow for service, etc...
