Thanks to those of you who answered that question for the little The All Natural Face giveaway-- I think Jamie had an exceptional answer. There will be lots more of the philosophical questions in the future for my readers. It gives you something more to think about besides just what's going on right in front of one's eyes. And that's that, for now =)
A couple of months ago, the Internal Vice President of the UC Davis Vietnamese Student Association asked if I'd contribute some pieces for a charity auction-- of course, I was more than happy to!
I got a letter from Ai Phi yesterday:

I often think to myself that HQCD interacts with a limited amount of people/resources, and that no way would I ever be able to make a somewhat significant contribution-- but this is one of the many events I hope to attend in the future (and maybe even host one!). HQCD helped raise over $500 for UNICEF through donation of 6 pieces of jewelry. Bidders bought these, and the money will go towards providing hygiene kits, medication, clean water and other aid to those who were affected by Typhoon Ketsana in Vietnam.
So needless to say, I feel great today.
I wanted to share with you a pair of earrings I bought from Julu Jewelry.
Steph's one of my favorite designers in the blog-sphere (and probably one of the only that I keep up with, because she's awesome). Her creativity and sense of style is super.
She recently came into possession of a beautiful pair of angel wing earrings OMG.
BUY THEM HERE. Quick, last two pairs! If no one buys them, I think I'll buy a second pair as a back up, just in case. Yes, because I'm that paranoid about earrings I like.
I did make an alteration, though. I have two ear piercing on the lobe, and in order to make them attach to my ear that way, I added an extra stud needle:
That way, they stay upwards and do not slowly fall throughout the day.
BEAUTIFUL. My favorite pair of earrings I've owned in a LONG time.
Here are some new things from HQCD:
^ YES YES! This is RESTOCKED.
I've made slightly changes to it (very subtle, mostly for quality purposes).
Some every-day classic earrings, great for any occasion, formal enough for work:
Fun spring-time earrings;
The 2nd HQCD double-stranded bracelet ever:
This one's called "Raven".
And the long planned for Alice in Wonderland Cluster Bracelet:
I finally realized why I got so many emails for cluster bracelets. Will not disclose the reason, but will say that if you ask me to duplicate another artist's jewelry, don't expect to hear an answer from me. That's quite insulting, actually. If you don't like my style, don't make a purchase-- it's very simple. Clustering is a STYLE of jewelry making that has very similar basics (so basically, every single cluster bracelet will have similarities because a "cluster" has already been defined in our minds), but if you want to change my cluster style into someone else's... you're better off purchasing directly from that person.
I also don't have the time and resources to go blog/website stalking to check if all custom orders are copied orders, so I trust you to never bring me those requests. I'm a busy gal, so I work based on an honor system. That being said, the same applies if you think I'm "copying" someone. I just DON'T have the time to search the net for things to copy because I'm BUSY. My school work is demanding, and living on my own is as well. Shoot me an email and bring it up to me if you have any issues.
Don't forget to check out the PROMOTIONS on the sidebar!
Open to all sorts of custom orders, just ask!
