Bracelet Give Away
When people see jewelry that I make, they kindly ask if I sell my art. I don’t. But I give it away as gifts. It’s made with love and given from the heart.
I’ve worked on a new design for a Christmas bracelet and after I made it, I thought, “What about this being a Christmas Give Away on my blog?” I’ve seen GiveAway/Contests on other blogs, but never attempted one of my own.
The bracelet is made out of Swarvorski Crystals and Seed Beads. It is a hand woven flat-spiral design using thread and needle. The toggle clasp is a Peyote stitch, both round and tubular. The picture doesn’t capture the sparkles of Swarvorski crystals, but believe me it makes a festive and lovely show!
Ok, here are the rules:
1. Visit my website. Leave a comment describing your happiest holiday memory (even though it’s a Christmas bracelet, the entry is for any holiday that made you happy). This is one entry.
2. Double Your Entry: Blog about this giveaway in your blog with a link to it. Include the url to your blog in your entry comment for verification.
3. Giveaway is open to all. The Give Away will run from today through November 10th at 11:59pm. Winner will be chosen at random and will be notified via email and announced on my blog. The winner must respond within 3 days or a new winner will be picked. Winner must provide name and mailing address.
Please be sure to leave your email address so I can let you know if you are the winner ~ so, this means anyone who isn’t a blogger is still eligible. If you don’t want to leave your email in the comments, you’re welcome to send an email to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Greg can’t participate in the give away, but he does have a funny Christmas memory to share.
When he and his siblings were young, they loved to decorate the Christmas tree. All of the lights, the tinsel and ornaments were up. Bonnie, Greg’s older sister, wanted to put the star on top of the tree. It’s one of those special honors, to put the star up. She had the star, reached up high and…. fell INTO the tree, knocked the tree down and a lot ornaments broke. They laughed and now, it’s tradition every year, Bonnie puts the decoration on top!
