****CLOSED*****Dorota Jewelry GIVEAWAY!


The creator of Dorota Jewelry has a facinating story to tell.
Here is a little about Dorota--

Welcome to Dorota Jewelry.
My name is Dorota Sularczyk, and I am the designer of the unique collections featured in this online gallery. I currently reside in Northern Virginia, but I was born and raised in Krakow, Poland.
From a young age, my appreciation for arts and craftsmanship was influenced by my mother, an antique restorer and a painter, and by the enchantments of my hometown which, unlike many of Europe’s great cities, was largely spared from the devastating bombing raids of World War II. Filled with breathtaking medieval architecture, Krakow is a city so bewitching and so rich in art and history, that large portions have been named World Heritage Sites by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultured Organization (UNESCO).
Krakow’s churches, markets, museums, and its famous Wawel Royal castle are filled with fine arts and exquisite gems. Naturally, my admiration of the arts and crafts, particularly my fascination for gemstones, grew strong with passing time.

I spent many years studying about gems and learning the delicate trade of bringing them together to create balanced and beautiful jewelry. Since the mid 1990s, I have sold many of my creations in boutiques across Europe as well as the United States, and now they are available to you from this online gallery.

Dorota Jewelry has some really beautiful and unique pieces in her shop.
It's very evident that she knows her stuff when it comes to jewelry and designing. Each Piece is cleaned and polished so that there are no rough or sharp edges. She takes pride in her work and it shows. You even get a free gift with every order.

I was very honored and excited to be able to review her 


Here's how it arrived, and how it looks when worn.
This is a solid, beautiful piece of jewelry with tons of details. Even the back of the necklace is detailed.

Here are some more pieces that I thought you would enjoy.
