Sponsor of the Week: Shelstring Jewelry Boutique

Each week here at The CSI Project, we enjoy sharing a fun giveaway with our readers.  Our giveaway this week is sponsored by Shelstring Jewelry Boutique.

Shelstring Jewelry is the creation of designer and craftswoman Michele Alger.

We’d like to let Michele tell us a little more about herself and the jewelry she sells:

 I was raised in the southern Mojave desert where I worked for my father, an entrepreneur, until I graduated from High School and went off to college in the Provo/Orem Utah area. While in Utah, I attended Even’s Hairstyling College for Cosmetology, and met and married the man of my dreams — a 19 year companion that was made perfectly for me.
Cosmetology continues to be a wonderful passion of mine that has been a rewarding blessing for meeting new people, enhancing creativity and talent, and saving our family money now that we have 5 darling boys and 2 beautiful daughters.
I have been designing jewelry now for the last 6 years and have found it to be just as much a passion of mine as the art of cosmetology. I look forward to serving you and hope you enjoy my work. These pieces are beautiful, and do nothing more than reflect and enhance the beauty within those that wear it.
Michele’s specialties include unusual beads and vibrant colors.
Her pieces often reflect Michele’s love of the desert and world cultures.
Each piece is unique.
Michele crafts pieces especially for infants, toddlers, and children in her Polka Dot Boutique line of jewelry.
