Giveaway - to good homes of course!

I think having over 50 Followers is cause for celebration and to do so I am having a giveaway - right here in my little  bloggy part of the world. I had intended to do this earlier in the week but I started having a poke about my workroom and - well, one thing led to another and before I knew it, I was transforming this disaster ...

... into this organisational yumminess!

No wonder I was distracted - it took an age but the result is very satisfying. Anyway I truly do have a giveaway, leave a comment to join in and I will draw 3 winners next week. This is what is up for grabs ...

It is Spring and love is in the air so I have made for some romantic jewels in keeping with the season. The pretty bracelet has pearls and glass and a little handmade tag.


Yummmm! I love freshwater pearls and these ones are a lovely colour - not quite as coppery as the pic suggests though. I have woven them onto a wire and added a chandelier crystal, teardrop pearl and some sparkly bits for a bit of extra pizazz!


Soft and romantic aren't they?


Finally a pearly necklace with a bit of an edge. A bunch of different pearls, a blackbird and if you look closely, a little handmade charm that says 'free'. The black beads are all acrylic so whilst it looks fairly chunky, it isn't heavy at all and the velvet ribbon is so soft on the neck.
I think this one would look great with a cool top and jeans but would also swank up a vintage frock if that was your thing. Leave a comment fora chance to have one of these sent to your place. Happy Spring and a big thank-you to The Followers!

Sue, I love your use of "found treasures" to make your jewelry. That copper bowl was to die for! The hammered texture in it and the lacy texture in the pewter bowl make wonderful jewelry! I love your beautiful pearl bracelet -- the colors are so soft and romantic, and the earrings and necklace you have made with the pewter and copper bowls are textural heaven. Now, you make me want to go get my shop organized -- which it DESPERATELY needs. Happy creating!
