This Black Friday, the deals get even sweeter. You can get 60 percent off your first month of Bright Cellars (four bottles) plus a bonus bottle of wine — a $100 value — for just $30 (plus shipping and handling).

And Cyber Monday brings the best deal of the year, with 60 percent off your first four-bottle box plus a bonus bottle of wine and a corkscrew ($108 value) for just $30 plus shipping and handling.

KB Design HTX

Visit Kelly Broesche at her Houston or Brenham studio for an Eterna bracelet, a permanent bracelet custom-fit and welded onto your wrist in a flash.

Share the experience with someone special and leave with a permanent reminder of something meaningful.

Can't make it to Houston or Brenham? You don’t have to miss out on any of the fun — a custom Eterna bracelet with a clasp or split ring is also available.

KB Design HTX also offers Eterna anklets, necklaces, and rings, plus an exclusive line of 14K gold, diamond, and gemstone charms.
