2SistersSew Crafty Jewelry Review & Giveaway

Happy Leap Year Day! On this special date, we're excited to present some of the new jewelry designs by Ann and Lynn of 2SistersSewCrafty on Etsy, perfect for this year's Girl of the Year Lea Clark! They have generously sent us several pieces to review and give away to 2 lucky readers , as well as set up a coupon code for L&L readers for the 2SistersSewCrafty Etsy shop

The review is first, with the giveaway & coupon code details at the end of the post. 

~Review of Jewelry~
Let's start off with this stunning necklace and gold earrings. 

Both pieces go perfectly in style and theme with Lea's collection, and look fantastic with her meet dress. 

Similar to Lea's compass necklace, the length of this blue, teardrop beaded necklace can also be adjusted, depending on the outfit and personal style of the doll. 

Here is the necklace worn at the shorter length for comparison. 

Here is the necklace laid out flat so you can see the details.

The clasp can be hooked onto any part of the chain to adjust the length of the necklace, and I love the additional detail of the matching green bead at the end of the chain. That way, even from the back, the necklace still has a subtle pop of color. If you see a necklace in 2SistersSewCrafty's shop which you would like to have to have an adjustable clasp, don't hesitate to contact them. Ann and Lynn are very open to working with their customers on creating the perfect piece for each one.

These teardrop beads are glass and not the lightweight plastic material that AG provides with their outfits. The necklace has a solid feel and hangs well with minor adjusting needed thanks to this.

Here is a side by side comparison of the necklace with Lea's compass necklace by AG for size reference. Both are at the shorter length.

Here are both necklaces at the longer length. 

The gold turtle earrings match the turtle charm on Lea's ribbon bracelet from her accessories set. 2SistersSewCrafty actually offers these in both colors, gold and silver. I personally prefer the gold turtle charms because they look better with Lea's clothes and style, but the silver are an excellent match for the bracelet. 

Here is what the silver turtle earrings look like, worn together with the bracelet from Lea's meet accessories. 

This closeup shows just how similar in size the earrings are to the charm on her meet bracelet. To be honest, I prefer the charms used by 2SistersSewCrafty because they are much more detailed and well made.

The AG charm is flat and plain on the back, while the earrings are still detailed on the back as well, showing the underside of the turtles. 

They come in two colors, both available in their Etsy shop.

Now let's look at this second ensemble which includes a macrame beaded bracelet, and colorful, chain link earrings.

The colors of the bracelet really go well with the colors of Lea's purple Beach Dress. You can see how well the thread and beads used in the bracelet line up with the symbol on her dress.

The macrame bracelet is hand woven with strong, thick thread so that it is accurate in scale on the AG doll's arm without danger of snapping or falling apart. 

The bracelet is adjustable in size so it can be worn with a variety of dolls, just not AG dolls. This is the bracelet at it's largest size, which lets it easily slip over the fingers of an AG doll. 

Then all you do is pull the two ends to tighten the bracelet so it won't fall off!

Here is the beaded macrame bracelet next to Lea's ribbon bracelet from her meet accessories for scale comparison. I feel the macrame style of the bracelet is very fitting with Lea's theme and collection. If you love the look, but not the colors, send 2SistersSewCrafty a message and they can create one for you in the colors you would like. 

The colorful chain link earrings also seem to be a perfect fit for Lea's Beach outfit. The colors and design match up beautifully with her dress. 

Although it may appear to be a simple pair of earrings, each of the links has to be cut and attached together, not an easy task when working on such a small scale.

Altogether, they really dress up an outfit which I originally was not a big fan of, and give it a more fun, stylish look. 

Here are two more earring designs by 2SistersSewCrafty. All their earrings can be worn with AG studs, and the studs can be swapped out and mix and matched for a variety of different looks.

Here is the close up of the gold leaf earrings. Both sides are veined and detailed.

These skeleton earrings are decorated with a drop of color by the orange bead. Both of these sets can be worn with a variety of outfits to accent and compliment the doll's style.

Here are the 3 earrings by 2SistersSewCrafty next to the pink/orange beaded earring included in AG's earring set for Lea. You can see that scale wise, the earrings by 2SistersSewCrafty is a perfect match for AG dolls, and the quality of the materials they use are always top notch, with real metal and glass in many cases, compared to the plastic beading on AG's dangle.

  5. I just wanted to say that this is so crazy since I was just about to checkout with items from this shop! Lately I've found myself watching a lot of Etsy haul videos on Youtube. Today I decided that I would would place my first order from an Etsy shop. I purchased a few items from CircleCSewing and while I was researching places to get American Girl items I came across your featured Etsy shops post! I saw 2SistersSewCrafty and decided to check out their shop and I fell in love! I love buying jewelry for myself and now I can get amazing jewelry for my dolls as well! The coupon code will help me get even more awesome jewelry thank you so much! :) I have Lea (Her ears aren't pierced yet.) so I'll definitely buy some earrings to match her outfits!

  25. Ooh, nice giveaway! I love 2SistersSewCrafty and have ordered from them before, so I definitely know firsthand how amazing their jewelry pieces are. My favorite item has to be the set of Eiffel Tower earrings, which I do own. Unlike Grace's official earrings, these are three-dimensional, which I really appreciate. I get so much use out of these earrings. I also like the Parisian charm bracelet that mimics Grace's exclusive charm bracelet in style. :)
