GROW YOUR BLOG

Today is the day!! it is the GROW YOUR BLOG party, the brainchild of Vicki, of Two Bags Full blog! This event is all about getting to meet new people, new bloggers, new interests, and new likes!  In Vicki's words, 

My "Grow Your Blog" event is designed to bring more readers and FOLLOWERS to your blogs.  The premise is simple -- visit as many blogs as you can and follow those that interest you.  In turn, those folks will be doing the same thing -- and hopefully everyone will grow a bigger blog! 
I like the idea myself...I love meeting new people, I love to learn new things, new interest, and I appreciate many different forms of art and cultures.  In turn , I hope I can interest you in what I do........
I am Sharon, and I make jewelry, and love to do it! I love to work with metal, I love gemstones, I love to pour my soul out and transform it into jewelry. AND, some days I love to make art! Paint, collage, papers, ink....messes and splashes, it's all good, fun, and therapuetic! All of these things above are my sanity! I love to blog because it connects me with so many like minded people and artists, whether we create the same way or not, we share a passion of creating!

So now , for the giveaway! Just leave a comment and make sure I have a way to contact you, and I will draw a name on Feb. 1st for these:

I made these earrings with Tibetan coral beads capped in sterling, turquoise accent beads, and organic handcut sterling dangles. I also hanforged the earwires.....there is something so special about  sterling silver, I know you will love these! They were published in the Winter 2013 issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine. I really am so thankful to everyone whom I have had the honor to meet and share with here in blogland, I want to share with you too!  I am so thankful and grateful to all of you!

I am especially thankful to Vicki for organizing this event, and for all of her hard work! Make sure you visit her blog, her creations are incredible!! Have fun visiting all the blogs too, I know I will, I can't wait!

Lovely earrings. Thanks for the chance to win them. Grow Your Blog is a wonderful idea. I am not a blogger, but I have recently discovered that from one blog, I can find out about other blogs with related topics, and I've subscribed to a whole bunch. Getting blogs out there is good for the blogger and us happy readers!

Your blog is very lovely and I am thrilled to meet another jewelry artist. I have just as of this new year come back to my jewelry making; I was off learning to paint and collage and art journal all of last year but the pull has been strong to come back to my beads and torch - I'm guessing you know exactly what I mean :D
I am your newest follower and look forward to many visits and chats in the future...
Hugs,

Hi Sharon, I've been a follower for some time now, and think your work is wonderful! You really have a talent for scrumptious color and texture combinations. But as much as i love your jewelry (and i would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win these earrings!!!), I think you are equally talented with your collage work. The one posted today, "Quiet", is absolutely beautiful.
