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......
