MIDNIGHT MADNESS AND A GRATEFUL GIVEAWAY!!!!


It's approaching midnight, and I vowed I would go to bed by then tonight. I have a really bad habit of staying up way too late, and paying for it throughout the next day, since I have to get up at 6:00 for work........so here's the deal.......I've been thinking about this for a while and have decided to have a giveaway in celebration of my first publication, and what better item to give than one of the pieces that got me published, my "Always Faithful" necklace! I really wanted to do this because I am so very grateful that I was published in a bead trade magazine, something that last year I would have never thought possible, but because of all of you, such good things have happened with my jewelry and you have all been such good friends, I don't know of any other way to say thanks. You have all helped me grow as an artist and an individual. Your kindness and encouragement are overwhelming. I know that being published to some may not be a big deal, but to me, every jewelry accomplishment is a big deal. From other life experiences, I have learned to try to be grateful for everything I have......so I'd like you to have also!
The necklace features a beautiful Lotus pendant by Gaea, and it hangs from a handmade bezel of another Gaea floral link and sterling silver wrapped wire and Hill Tribe beads. The chain is made of Hill Tribe cylinders, more Gaea beads, fancy jasper rounds, and a wire wrapped clasp. All the metal is sterling silver.
So this is all that I want you to do.......there are 4 chances to win......

1. Leave me a comment on this post.

2. Blog about the giveaway on your blog and include a link to here.

3.Join my google friend connect badge on the right.

4. Heart my etsy shop and tell me the piece you like best.

Let me know the ways you entered!

I will take entries until 5:00 pm Saturday, July 19th. I will announce the winner on Monday, July 21st. I might even throw in something extra!!

That's it folks......oh, and don't forget to leave me an email or contact so I can get in touch with you!
Please spread the word and have fun. I would love to meet more kind souls such as yourselves, I consider myself blessed because of you!!

Dear sweet Sharon,
It is really not a wonder that you find kindness and encouragement in Blogland - you are such a sweet, helpful, encouraging person yourself!!

What a generous give away. I hope you are getting through your Monday ok. I dislike them so much they come around much to quickly for my tastes and they start way to early!

I am so excited that I found your blog. I just finished making the Go Fish bracelet that was designed by Liz Revit and published in July 2009 Bead Tends. I learned a lot from following the directions to her bracelt. I came to your blog through her blog. I love working with wire. I love your designs and I would love to win your gorgeous creation.I congratulate you on your publication. Your design table caught my eye, It looks like mine, but only one layer of mine. Kathy

Patricia said...

Hi Sharon, I love all of your jewelry, especially the wire work like "My Lucky Charms"; I had two favorits in your Etsy Shop. I couldn't decide between them so I decided to mention them both. One: Queen of Green; and 2: Summer Swirl. The Tranquility of Queen and the use of the wire and the summery colors on the Swirl. I have hearted your shop. Hope you will take a minute to visit mine. Your jewelry is amazing; this page is wonderful; you are very generous and inspiring. Thanks for sharing yourself and your work. JustMyJewelry
